PWD has prepared a proposal for 29km long bypass road between Bafna Toll Plaza and Kumhari for reducing traffic pressure on the national highway. This project would provide better road connectivity to several adjoining places.
District Collector Dr Sarveshwar Narendra Bhure visited Bafna Toll Plaza on Wednesday to conduct survey of the proposed bypass road. Public Works Department of the state has prepared a project for this bypass with the objectives of reducing pressure on the national highway. PWD officials displayed the map of the proposed route and detailed the District Collector about the project. PWD Executive Engineer Ashok Shriwas informed that the proposed bypass will be about 29 km long. It will cover several populated areas and provide better road connectivity. Dr Bhure examined the proposed map in detail and gave necessary directions to the concerned officials.
Collector said that the proposed route should be worked out in such a manner so that it could benefit maximum population and serve other purposes. PWD officials informed that the bypass road would reduce the distance of Durg – Raipur route. This bypass will not only help in reducing the distance but will also reduce the pressure on other roads. Officials claimed that this bypass will decrease the pressure on the highway and at the same time it will provide better connectivity to several villages situated around the city of Durg.
The proposed road will originate from Toll Plaza of Nehru Nagar – Anjora Bypass and move through Durg-Dhamadha-Bemetra route and then move right from Jeora Sirsa and move across Kutelabhatha – Avanti Bai Chowk Kohka, Sadbhavna Chowk Vaishali Nagar – Gauravpath Camp, Umda – Patharra – Dadar – Janjagiri and join Ahiwara – Kumhari road to reach Kumhari and touch the national highway.
