hear the news

Lucknow. The LDA has made a deal of Rs 120 crore for the first phase of the Green Corridor project to free the city from traffic jams. In a first phase, a road will be prepared between IIM Road on the right bank to Pucca Pul (Harding Bridge) in about 8 km. 300 million must be spent on this. By Diwali, the construction work of a kilometer-long flyover at the Gau Ghat pumping station near Jal Nigam will begin in this part.
Sanjeev Gupta, Executive Engineer, LDA, says that in the first phase, Rs 135 crore will be spent to build the road on the flyover and 120 meters of the remaining bandha. Of this, Rs 120 crore has been approved. The LDA is also arranging the budget for the remaining portion. First, a four-lane road should be made by widening the constructed dam up to the pucca bridge via Kudiyaghat. It has an elevated section at Gaughat. The tender for this item will be issued within 15 days. As soon as the contractor is selected, the works of about eight km will start in the next 60 days.
In the second phase, the work can be done only after NOC, the design can change
LDA officials say five protected monuments come within a radius of about three kilometers in the second phase of the green corridor. These include the centrally protected monument Vilayati Bagh, the cemetery near Machili Bhawan, Rumi Darwaza, the British Residency and Bara Imambara. The LDA had sought NOC from the Archeology Department for the construction of an elevated corridor and an elevated bridge here, which is yet to be received. In this situation, the alignment will now be changed for the second phase of the Green Corridor. In this situation, in the area where the protected monuments will reach, a green corridor will be built at one end of the Gomti river. Therefore, construction will only begin after the necessary changes in the design.
760 million spent on the first phase of the green corridor
LDA’s Green Corridor project is divided into four parts. In this, a total of Rs 760 crore will be allocated on both banks between the first part of the IIM road to the pucca bridge. The work of the second phase of the Green Corridor was to be constructed on both sides of the Gomti River from Pucca Bridge to Pipraghat. To build the entire green corridor, the LDA needs about Rs 3,000 crore. For this, LDA has to monetize the government owned land on river banks and other places.
The flyover near Jal Nigam will be constructed at a cost of $120 million
The Green Corridor work to be initiated by LDA in the first phase includes the construction of a bridge worth Rs 120 crore. Through this bridge, the road coming from the IIM road will connect with the middle of the pucca bridge. In fact, in the middle falls that part of the river Gomti whose water is supplied to the city through the Gaughat Pump House.
Tender issuing process
LDA VC Dr. Indramani Tripathi says the process of issuing tender is underway to start the work on the first phase of the Green Corridor. The tender will be published before August 31. The work will begin within two months of the selection of the contractor.
