SILCHAR- The Assam cabinet on Tuesday approved three more flyovers in Guwahati. This was announced by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma at a press conference held at Silchar after the cabinet meeting which was held for the first time at Barak Valley.
The new flyovers will be constructed near Down Town Hospital, Fatasil Garchuk, and Kumarpara-Fatasil. The chief minister said that the DPR will be prepared for the flyovers and it will take one year time to prepare the same.
