The work on around 800 meter long stretch will start from Punjab-Chandigarh border where an underpass will be constructed. The underpass will connect the flyover.

“The underpass will ease the traffic burden, this stretch had become notorious for the long traffic jams during the peak hours, with the construction of this underpass the traffic shall easily cross this stretch and connect the main flyover,” an official said.
