Underbridge work on C'garh's Ambala-Kalka stretch in Nov

Work on construction of a road underbridge on Ambala-Kalka section will finally be taken up by Northern Railway. The work will start from November 1 and will continue till July 31, 2013. Traffic has therefore been diverted to Chandigarh-Kalka road.

The 3-km stretch to connect Chandigarh with Panchkula via Hallomajra lightpoint with Industrial Area, Phase II of Panchkula is ready. The only thing that remains is the railway underbridge.

Over four lakh commuters enter Chandigarh from adjoining cities of Panchkula and Mohali daily and it has made traffic bottlenecks a perennial feature on the main arteries like Madhya Marg.

The route — from Sector 26, Chandigarh to IT Park crossing to Modern Housing Complex, Manimajra to Housing Board crossing — hasn't been of much help due to the narrow roads in Manimajra.

The only immediate solution to the problem in construction of alternate routes is stuck due to indifference of the railway authorities as the Chandigarh-Panchkula route number 2 has not become operational for over four years.
