Work is expected to begin in two months on a Rs131 crore ($27m) project to build the Kapurbawdi-Golden Dyes Junction flyover at Thane in India.

The four-lane 1,300m long flyover is expected to reduce congestion on the busy Thane-Ghodbunder Road.

The project is being funded by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation and is being undertaken by construction firms NCC and J Kumar.

The initial work involves digging a trial bore to check the nature of soil and rock below the surface, which will decide the depth of the foundation for the piers to support the flyover.
