 Gudivada, July 27(prajaamaravati): State Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Kodali Srivenkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that flyovers are being constructed on the Vijayawada-Bhimavaram and Gudivada-Machilipatnam railway tracks at a cost of Rs 200 crore.  On Tuesday in Krishna District Gudivada, Minister Kodali Nani said that in Gudivada town, there is a constant increase in traffic problems near the Bhimavaram and Machilipatnam railway tracks.  We have been working for many years to build two flyovers.  As soon as Vallabhaneni Balasouri took over as Machilipatnam MP, he persuaded the central government to construct flyovers in Gudivada and worked hard to get funds sanctioned in the budget.  As part of this, Rs 125 crore has been earmarked for the construction of a flyover on the Level Crossing Gate-52 Vijayawada-Bhimavaram railway track and another flyover on the Gudivada-Machilipatnam railway track. 75 crore has been sanctioned by the Central Government.  The designs for the two flyovers will be prepared and sent to the National Highways Authority and the Central Government.  He said if there were bypass roads in the area where the flyovers would be built, the permits would not come as per government norms.  He said there was some delay due to the presence of bypass roads in the area where flyovers are being constructed in Gudivada. MP Balasouri said Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had brought to the notice of the people of Gudivada the plight of the Gudivada people near the Bhimavaram and Machilipatnam railway tracks for many years.  With this, the central government has given permission for the construction of two flyovers at Gudivada under the one-time development scheme.  Meanwhile, a final order is expected to be issued for the construction of railway tracks.  Survey work is currently underway.  Gudivada - Machilipatnam Railway flyover is being constructed from Gudivada Rural Mandal near Billapadu to Autonagar Petrol Bunk in Gudivada town.  From there, another flyover will be constructed 150 meters from the road to the town on the Gudivada-Bhimavaram railway track to the Kotibomma Center.  We are also focusing on the construction of roads and under tunnels on both sides of these flyovers.  Machilipatnam MP Balasouri said he would keep his promise to work for the construction of two flyovers at Gudivada.  Balashouri said the construction of these flyovers had been brought to the attention of Parliament several times. Thanked MP Balashouri on behalf of the Gudivada people.  He said if the construction of these two flyovers and under tunnels is completed, the traffic problems on the Gudivada-Pamarru National Highway will be completely eliminated.  Minister Kodali Nani said motorists traveling to Machilipatnam, Pamarru, Avanigadda and other places via Gudivada would also be stranded for hours near the railway tracks.
