As stated in DNA, an MSRDC official said that currently, there will be barricading below the flyover, and when actual work commences, traffic will be shut on the flyover before which several joint inspections by MSRDC and traffic police will be undertaken in order to ensure that there is no major traffic bottleneck due to the closure.
