Creating some hype and hadaavidi for projects just for aggressive dates is good in my opinion within Indian context. Even if the hyped up targets are not met . But what is despicable politics is creating hype with no intent of any delivery at all like lepakshi city or vanpic project.

'carefulness' explains sending designs for review by experts
'political interference' may explain proposal to change designs ramp/pillar structure btn Bandar canal and Rajiv Park (landing) area ...

how to explain not removing obstacles like HT power towers in the path of the flyover (near Rajiv Park) - even at this point of time?!! ...

also, it helps if officials make it clear 'from where to where' - when they make statements like they complete construction by so and so time!...

I would assume, R&B is responsible for overall coordination for completion of the project!

The government asks contractor to complete it before Dasara

The State government had ambitious plans to complete the Kanaka Durga flyover before Krishna pushkarams last year. But the deadlines kept changing following tardy progress in the construction. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had set August this year as fresh deadline at a review meeting. Now, in view of the practical problems, the contractor has been given time till October.

The flyover, as per the original schedule is supposed to be completed by December last. But only 40% of work had been completed so far. The government gave a year’s time for the contractor to construct the flyover. The government extended time till December this year taking the technical issues into consideration.

The work is going on at a snail’s pace for various reasons. Primarily it is due to inadequate work force and prefabricated structures. Soma Constructions, which bagged the contract, is supposed to do casting of 5 to 6 spines (a spine on the pier holds left and right wings) every day. The firm could cast about 100 spines though 400 spines were required in the flyover.

Another 11 pillars have to be constructed before July. The firm could construct 23 pillars so far. The contractor is using semi-automated technology in erection. The R&B officials suggested going for fully automated technology so that work progresses on planned lines.

When contacted, Special Chief Secretary (Roads and Buildings) Sumita Dawra said a roadmap was given to the contractor.

The works were behind the schedule primarily due to inadequate work force. Technical challenges such as curves in the design were also a hitch, she said.

“Also, our focus is on quality of the work. We cannot compromise on the safety aspect.”

The six-lane flyover, being built at a cost of ₹ 447 crore, starts at Kummaripalem and ends at the Rajiv Gandhi Municipal Park. Completion of the flyover by forthcoming Dasara is crucial since heavy influx of pilgrims will choke the route. The project design includes two vehicular underpasses and a pedestrian underpass, besides a subway in front of the Durga Ghat. The government spent about ₹ 160 crore so far.

R&B Engineer in Chief P. Subbaraya Sarma said a walking path from Kummaripalem to the temple entrance would be constructed for the convenience of devotees. A retaining wall would also be constructed near Indrakeeladri, he said.

Ms. Sumita Dawra and R&B officials inspected the ongoing work on Wednesday.

Delay in Kanaka Durga Temple Flyover Construction Flayed | Vijayawada | New Waves
NewWaves - Published on Jun 13, 2017 ...

The Kanaka Durga Temple Flyover construction in Vijayawada is delayed due to lethargic attitude of the construction company. After many reminders finally the AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has put a deadline by asking the company to complete the flyover by end of the year without fail. -

Chandrababu Holds Review Meet | on Kanaka Durga Flyover Works
ETV Andhra Pradesh - Published on Jul 7, 2017
Completion by Dec 2018 (3 years and 1 month)- Finishing works by March 2019! ... Rs 10 Crore additional cost (how is it justified?!)...

No LA issues... No shortage of money ... No adverse weather conditions ... No non-cooperation from people or the govt ...
Yet, this is the how they could manage construction of a flyover - raises doubts about how the new capital construction goes!
Should so many different politicians (MLA's, MP's, Ministers ... apart from 2 collectors, 1 commissioner and top R&B executives) involve in the construction of the flyover project within last one and a half years (by the same govt) ?
Yet, they could not manage the contractor to speed up things even when weather is permitting and no-LA-issues?!
what could be the root cause of this stubborn, lethargic and defiant behaviour of the contractor in this case?!!
what makes the contractor so defiant and for what reason?!!!

did the govt make a mistake by awarding all components of works as one single project and giving to one single contractor? ...
going by this example, how long would Benz Circle flyover take ? (though it is by a different contractor, assuming that all contractors work under similar situation!)
should we put all the blame for delay on the contractor only???
many questions ...

Kanakadurga flyover work at slow pace
DECCAN CHRONICLE. | VENU LANKA Published Jul 12, 2017, 8:08 am IST

Vijayawada: Delay in Kanakadurga flyover works which was dream project of the citizens, is increasing their traffic woes. Slow pace of the works and extended deadlines are irking the residents of Bhavanipuram, Vidya-dharapuram and Golla-pudi, who were eagerly waiting for the completion of the project. Meanwhile, requests from contract agency on extending the deadline to 2018 is creating worries.

Telugu Desam government had given top priority to Kanakadurga Flyover project as promised in 2014 elections and started works with a motive of completing it by Krishna Pushkaralu. But the contract agency Soma had failed to complete the works before Pushkaralu due to many reasons and the government had allowed the agency to extend deadlines considering the genuine problem.

Residents of Bhavanipuram who are facing problems with traffic diversions are demanding that the government not extend deadline any more considering the difficulty faced in the traffic. “We are the ones who felt happy with the announcement of flyover. But months are passing and still construction works are continuing at a snail’s pace. We are travelling 5 kilometers additionally to reach a destination which is a mile away from here. Rains have damaged the alternative roads and traffic at Tunnel Centre has become horrible,” says Bollaram Nagendra Babu, a motorist.

The agency which promised to complete works by December 2018 has requested to extend the deadline and CM N. Chandrababu Naidu has seriously said that it would not be extended and that he will monitor the progress every month. “Kanakadurga flyover was the most challenging project as the pillars had to be laid in the canal and Krishna river. “We have decided to go with overhead launching system to give a shape to the project by December 2017 and the project will be ready for inauguration by March 2018 as per the ultimatum issued by the Chief Minister,” says R&B NH wing engineer-in-chief P. Subbaraya Sharma.
