In Vijayawada, due to the heavy rush on National Highway Number 65, Government called for tenders in 2015 to build Kanaka Durga flyover.

The works had to be completed within two years but the Government has been extending the last date for completion everytime.

New extended date is 26th January, 2019 but the works seems to be still pending.

The project value is said to be Rs. 282 crores and Central Government paid Rs. 185 crores, bill claims till now. All claims by contractor Nama have been created on-time.

Still, the fly over about 2.5 Kms long is under construction and the people in Vijayawada are facing huge traffic problems.

Mainly, the busy areas like Kaleswara Rao Market, Vidhyadharapuram are facing severe traffic jams on daily basis.

People got accustomed to the situation so much that they are throwing satires at the Government asking them how will they complete capital Amaravathi, in-time when they build a fly-over.
