Commuters and the general public using the ever busy Mint junction in the city could heave a sigh of relief from Wednesday as a four-lane flyover would be thrown open to the public by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa via video conferencing.

Along with the fly-over that connects Old Jail Road and Basin Bridge Road, the  Chief Minister would also inaugurate a pedestrian subway along the Monegar Choultry (MC) Road in Old Washermenpet on Wednesday.

The work on the four-lane flyover facility, which was started around two-and-half years ago, has met with several delays owing to design changes made to accommodate the Metro rail work.

“The 506.8 metre flyover has been delayed by over 6 months as there were changes in design that were requested by CMRL to accommodate the Metro rail tunnel, which is at present being constructed right beneath it,” a Corporation official said.  The flyover has been constructed at a cost of `23 crore.

The subway, constructed with financial assistance from the Railways, has cost `15.5 crore. The Corporation provided `10.5 crore as part of its share for the subway project.
