In Kolkata, the Park Circus-Parama Island flyover, a crucial project under Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), which was scheduled to be completed by August 2012, has now missed its revised deadline of August, 2013. There is no way it can meet its second amended deadline of December 2013. It is going to be city's longest flyover.
For construction of Park Circus-Parama Island flyover in Kolkata, the West Bengal Urban Development Department has sought the State's Finance Department to clear payment of Rs 285 crore additional amount. The flyover is to become India's second largest flyover after the one in Hyderabad which is 11.66.
