    Ahmedabad: The Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (Auda) has created a new residential affordable housing (R-AH) zone around one km of Sardar Patel Ring Road to boost affordable housing.
    To improve connectivity and prevent traffic congestio•in future, Auda has proposed over six flyovers or underpasses on the road. Flyovers at Bopal and Odhav will be taken up on priority.
    The flyovers will come up at several junctions, including Bopal, Odhav, Sanathal, Bhadaj, Naroda and Onganaj. “The priority of setting up flyovers or underpasses will be decided after assessing feasibility. However, flyovers at Bopal and Odhav will be the first to be created,” said D Thara, chief executive officer of Auda.
    Traffic movement in the area will determine whether the bridges will be created on the ring road or over the ring road.
    According to Thara, as affordable housing has been proposed around the ring road, setting up of flyovers and underpasses have become a requirement. However, some of these structures will be built by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).
    Auda has already made a provision of Rs3 crore as an initial amount for the projects, as they will be built in a phased manner.
    Interestingly, in its budget of 2011-12, AMC had proposed to create an ‘S’ shaped flyover on SP Ring Road connecting Bopal and Ambli at a cost of Rs7 crore. The flyover was to be built under Mukhyamantri Swarnim Jayanti Shaheri Vikas Yojna. However, now that Auda will take over the same, the design might change.
    Following a traffic survey by the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), AMC had already announced its plan to build flyovers at 34 traffic junctions in the city. These places include Helmet Circle, Shyamal crossroads, Income Tax Circle, Anjali crossroads, Paldi junction, Jalaram crossing and Vejalpur crossing.
