Meant to End Traffic Snarl, Parama Flyover Creates One


Kolkata: The much hyped Parama Flyover of Kolkata depicted as an massive step forward to relieve he commuters from massive traffic snarl has boomerang and turned to be creating one instead.

Just a day after a pompous opening in the presence of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was the epicenter of a huge traffic chaos and even witnessed an accident on Saturday.

During the inaugural ceremony it was declared that the flyover would reduce the travelling time and will take just six minutes for commuters to reach Park Circus from EM Bypass, but ends up taking at least 25 minutes.

The traffic snarl was so bad that the flyover has to be closed on Saturday. On the other hand a bike rammed on a divider on the flyover. Two people named Sheik Mehraja and Sheikh Faizal were injured in the accident and rushed to Chittaranjan Medical College Hospital.
