Earlier the RDA authorities had decided to change the previous design of the project and a new design has been approved by the provincial Development Working Party (PDWP) in order to minimize public worries at the main junction of the city. Under the newly approved design, a flyover would also be constructed to cater to the traffic from Rawat Side. The cost of the new design has increased to 6.422 billion compared to the previous cost of 4.87bn with a daily transportation capacity of 100,000 vehicles. The revised remodeling project will be completed in two years and will provide an easy way to 131,500 vehicles per day.
