Elevated corridor ready for traffic in Nashik

In Nashik, the he 6.1-km elevated corridor on the Mumbai-Agra national highway is ready for vehicular traffic. However, at Adgaon Naka, where the flyover descends north of Dwarka junction on the highway, a patch of 150 meters on the service road is still not completed given the objection by its landlord who has been demanding compensation.

The Nashik Municipal Corporation owes a certain amount of compensation to the landlord concerned for many years, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) officials said. However, as the landlord has not been given the money, the work along the stretch by the flyover opposite Meenatai Thackeray Stadium is still incomplete.

A few kilometres away from the controversial patch opposite Meenatai Thackery Stadium, the Bali Mandir, on the median of the highway, is yet to be shifted to a new place and the construction of the new shrine is likely to take a few months more. A site has been selected for the temple and construction is in progress. Nonetheless, driving on the highway has become a little convenient after the work of the temple began in July 2012.
