The locals have been demanding the construction of a flyover on the level crossing near Sidhamahavir rail gate of the Puri-Konark National Highway as they have to wait for hours due to long jams of hundreds of people along with buses, taxies and commercial vehicles on both sides of the level crossing during the train hours.
Notably, the level crossing is on the main road which connects Puri to Konark, Nimapara, Gop and Kakatpur area and it is the second biggest connecting route to the Twin Cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar, and other parts of State.
