|Artist's Impression of Gate in Narkelbagan Junction, New Town|
A gate with a viewers' ring shaped gallery will be constructed in New Town. The 52 piles have been driven, the steel structure has been fabricated and its surface sandblasted and painted. Now a month-long procedure is required to carefully put it upright. See the following video:
The height of the gate is 55m and it will be constructed at the traffic junction near Rabindra Tirtha / Hidco Bhavan, popularly known as Narkelbagan More. Extensive discussions have been made with traffic police wing of Bidhannagar Commissionerate and Hidco engineers have started making alternative median cuts etc as suggested by police. so as to ensure minimum dislocation of traffic through this busy junction. The whole process will start on 6th March and will take a month to complete.
Yes some inconvenience will be caused to motorists but, as they say for Metro works "today's pain is tomorrow's gain".
