We request you to please support us in requesting the Road and Building Ministry of Gujarat to commence construction of a long delayed overbridge.

This is a serious issue regarding continuous delay in construction of an urgently needed overbridge over the railway crossing near railway station of Kim, district Surat, Gujarat ( location on map: )

This little town of Kim and it's surrounding villages are part of Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) and home to thousands of industrial units and a few lakh people who live and work in this region. This railway crossing divides the town into half and is the lifeline for personal and commercial transport vehicles catering to the industry around.

The closing of railway crossing gate causes major traffic congestion and it's not uncommon for the gate to be closed for upto 35 to 40 minutes at a time. This not only causes distress for the commuters and residents but also results in excessive wastage of fuel. Also, the extraordinary amount of heavy vehicle traffic causes daily accidents which is a serious concern.

There has been a demand to build an overbridge on this railway crossing since long time and an in principle approval was granted by Ministry of Road and Building of Gujarat state on 24 May 2016. But till now no progress is made. The initiation of this project is halted multiple times by people with vested interest who are blocking a much needed infrastructure boost to this industrial town.

We hope for your support in this urgent necessity of people of Kim.
