Baruah road before Durga Puja. Both the flyovers would lead to smooth flow of the traffic thereby giving great relief to the commuters. Though, Shraddhanjali flyover was earlier planned to be 1 KM long, considering the need and demand of the people the length has been revised to make it 2.28 KM long.
