The construction of the 10.1 km Avinashi Road Flyover, which began on December 3, 2020, is now 70% complete and is expected to be finished by December this year or January 2025.

The four-lane flyover starts from the Uppilipalayam Road signal and ends at Goldwins near the KMCH Institute of Health Sciences and Research. Out of the 305 pillars required for this project, 301 have been completed, and only 4 pillars need to be constructed. The NH wing of the State Highways Department is working on these remaining pillars at the Nava India junction.

Since a rail-over bridge is already present near Hopes College, pillars cannot be installed in that area; hence, the officials have planned to link the gap between the flyover portion of this area and the other side via composite girders. The preparatory work for this has begun.

At least 215 deck slabs have been fixed out of the total 304 slabs. The remaining slabs need to be installed at the pillars erected at PSG Tech College and Nava India areas.

Construction of up and down ramps has begun at 7 places along the flyover. The entry and exit points of the flyover are coming up at Anna Statue, Nava India, Hope College, and near the Airport junction.

Sources shared that funds have been allocated to build 5 foot-over bridges under the 10.1-kilometer Avinashi Flyover, at Lakshmi Mills Junction, PSG College of Technology, PSGR Krishnammal College for Women, Hope College Junction, and near Kovai Medical Center and Hospital to facilitate safer and easier road crossing.

However, it is yet to be made clear whether these foot-over bridges will include lift support, which was proposed as an alternative to the escalator facility that was announced earlier.

Once the main carriageway is fully completed, it is expected to be opened for motorists, even if the ramp works remain to be completed.
