The flyover, including approach road, has a total length of 1.541 km and a 7.5m width. The flyover will now open three-way traffic while connecting people from Rasulgarh to Saheed Nagar to Bomikhal.

The flyover has 20 pillars on Bomikhal side, 16 pillars on Rasulgarh side and another 18 pillars on Saheed Nagar side. The authorities have also installed LED streetlights, both on the flyover but also on the approach roads down the lane.
