Jhansi. The biggest hurdle for the railway in building the bridge at the Gwalior Marg level crossing has finally been overcome. The railway recently approved the construction at the meeting of the Pink Book of the Railway Board. It has also decided to contribute to its total cost. After the approval by the railway, the preparations for the foundation stone have now also begun. Over the next two months, officials have expressed the hope that the foundation stone will be laid.
The paper exercise of building bridges began about two years ago in order to remove the problem of congestion at the Gwalior Marg crossing. Originally the cost of this bridging was estimated at around 105 crores. This budget is approved by the Prime Minister’s Office. But the file got stuck due to a lack of lobbying. In December 2020, the government gave its approval in principle. After the cancellation of the Smart Road project to be built by the Smart City Mission, the board of directors approved this amount for the bridging. After the approval of the board of directors, the budget problem was largely resolved. But the matter got stuck because the railway permit was not received. It was finally approved at the Railway Board’s Pink Book meeting last week. In this regard, the director and chief engineer of the railroad board ON Sharma informed of this in a letter to the general manager of the North Central Railway. In the letter, the director also spoke of participating in the cast sharing. However, since the design of the bridge has not yet been completed, its share has not yet been determined. On the other hand, Vedprakash, chief engineer at Setu Corporation, says that after receiving approval from the railroad, work will start soon. According to preliminary estimates, the railways will have to contribute around 22 million euros. Engineers associated with the project say work will begin within two months of the groundbreaking ceremony.
Railway engineers inspected the site
Jhansi. Railway engineers arrived on site on Saturday and took stock of the architectural situation for the construction of the planned overpass. Setu Nigam has almost completed the design of the bridge. But railway engineers are not satisfied with this construction. According to the railway planning, the railway engineers insist on leaving a footpath about one and a half meters wide in both lanes and leaving a meter of free space in between. In the Setu Nigam design, however, this space was left on the edge. A bridge about 17 meters wide will be built over it. Railway engineers also had the measurement work carried out in their presence. The deputy chief engineer of the railways Abhinay Yadav, AE RK Rawat from the Setu Corporation as well as other engineers and employees were present.
The crossing remains closed for five to seven hours
Jhansi. The traffic jam at Gwalior Marg crossing gate number 117 remains a problem for thousands of people. Before the Corona period, this crossing was closed for about 12 hours in 24 due to the train traffic. It currently remains closed for around five to seven hours due to the smaller number of trains. Second, after a new road was built on Una Balaji Road, the number of vehicles traveling from here on the Kanpur Highway has continued to increase. This constantly leads to traffic jams at the intersection. Because of this, there is often a long traffic jam here. The ambulance is also stuck for several hours.
This is how the bridge will be built
Overbridge will be based on a modern design.
– The bridge will rise from the turn of the Heimwehr training center and land on the other side at the women’s polytechnic.
Setu Corporation will build 350-350 meters on either side of the bridge.
– The railway has to complete the construction of 60 meters above the tracks.
The length is 990 meters, the maximum height above the tracks is 11 meters and the width of the four lanes is 18 meters.
It is estimated that it will cost 105 crores to build the bridge.
