A study on necessity of Fly-Over Bridge: A Case Study of Rajkot-Morbi Road
Railway Crossing No: 119 is situated on Rajkot - Morbi Road, about 1 km from Octroi Naka. This road is directly
connected to Morbi, Kutch, Radhanpur, Mehasana and Rajasthan with a daily traffic movement of more than 10000
vehicles. The railway crossing provided at this place closes for 49 times for an average period of 8 minutes, resulting in
a heavy traffic jam, which takes normally 20 to 35 minutes to get cleared. This ensures a definite production of air and
noise pollution and unnecessary waste of fuel, resulting in loss of national resources. In this paper, study on
‘Requirement of Fly-Over over Railway Crossing No.119 is done to reach the solution of the problem.
