MOHALI,JULY11,2018 (By TNL Bureau): Civil Engineering students of Indo Global Colleges Lakshmi Sharma, Lhakpa Sherpa Nitika Sharma, Amarveer Singh, Namanjot Singh, Harsh Sharma, carried out a survey of the traffic Zirakpur during peak hours including four hours each in the morning & evening times. Based on this survey, they found that the traffic density is maximum on Monday mornings and Friday evenings. To solve such traffic jam problem, students designed a unique flyover to channelize the traffic in a better way.
This signal free flyover will provide a corridor for the commuters Zirakpur flyover in between Chandigarh – Delhi national highway. While giving information about it students Nitika Sharma informed that the flyover which is already constructed in Zirakpur made commuting easy from Delhi to Chandigarh but locals from Patiala still don’t have a solution and still stuck in traffic jams for hours. Students suggested making a leaf like Shimla which combines the flyover to Patiala. The designers of this flyover claim that with this flyover, traffic density will reduce to just 10% of the present density.
Commenting on this project, Sukhdev Singla Chairman of the institute informed that we always encourage our students in preparing projects of practical utility and benefit for the society. According to him, such solutions are found due to the motivation of teachers and the hard work of students.
