The budgets allocated for the construction of the four flyovers are: Boragaon – Rs. 25.32 Crore, Gorchuk – Rs. 25.64 Crore, Lokhra – Rs. 31.83 Crore, and Basistha – Rs. 28.89 Crore.

Acknowledging the challenges posed by traffic snarls and long travel times on the previous four-lane stretch, CM Sarma expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Modi saying, “Aware of this situation, PM Modi and Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari had approved a project for converting the Khanapara to Jalukbari stretch which is 17-km to 6 lanes.” With the completion of this initiative, commuters can expect smoother travel experiences and reduced congestion at key junction points along the Guwahati Bypass.
