A meeting of the Board, presided over by state Forest Minister Jogu Ramanna approved the project unanimously. Under the SRDP, the state government proposes to construct six multi level flyovers at the KBR park here to ease traffic congestion. The state government’s proposal was challenged in the National Green Tribunal (NGT) citing environmental concerns. However, the proposal to construct the flyovers got a green signal with a recent verdict of the NGT, a state government release claimed.
The issue would come before a meeting of the National Wildlife Board this month end, the release said, adding that no damage would be caused to KBR Park due to the construction of the flyovers.
The KBR National Park is a paradise for morning walkers who include actors and politicians. The Strategic Road Development Project, however, has raised the hackles of environmentalists who fear the destruction of the largest lung space in the city.
