Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
January 12 was the last day of the trial of traffic on Bhopal's Subhash Nagar ROB (Railway Overbridge). The need for rotary and dividers has come to the fore in the 7-day trial, so dividers will be made in the site of a small rotary and bridge under the metro pillar. The timing of the 'Green' signal will be 25 to 30 seconds. Left turn will remain clear till the Income Tax Office-Jinsi intersection.
On 23 January, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan will inaugurate the ROB. Therefore, between January 13 and 22, rotary and dividers will be made. The timing of the signal will be decided by the traffic police. In the 7-day trial, it was revealed that vehicles going from Jinsi intersection to MP Nagar should be stopped for a short time, because people are in a hurry to go to the government-private office in the morning. Therefore, there is a plan to keep the timing of 25 seconds.

Rotary dividers will be made in 10 days
PWD Chief Engineer (Bridge) Sanjay Khande said that small rotary and dividers will be required mainly, so between January 13 and 22, rotary and dividers will be made in 10 days. The bridge will be inaugurated on 23 January.
Earlier on January 5, Medical Education Minister Vishwas Sarang started the trial by driving a jeep. Vehicles like dumpers, JCBs, etc., including bike-cars, were also passed over the bridge for about an hour. Minister Sarang had driven the jeep.

About the bridge
The ROB was completed about 23 months back, but due to the metro project and service road, the traffic could not start. The bridge has been built for Rs 40 crore. This 690 meter long ROB will connect the old city with the new. More than 3 lakh people will benefit.
Sometimes the work of the metro and sometimes due to the visit of PM Narendra Modi to the capital, the traffic could not start from the bridge.
After the start of traffic from ROB, an average of 3 lakh people will be benefited every day. At the same time, the problem of hours of jam at Ashoka Garden along with Subhash Nagar and Rachna Nagar Under Bridge will also be solved. Those commuting from ROB to MP Nagar and from Prabhat intersection area towards Bhopal station, Ashoka Garden and Piplani, Govindpura, MP Nagar, Rachna Nagar will be comfortable.
