Hindustan Times reported that in a bid to protect wild animals including the endangered one-horned rhinos from being hit by vehicles, the Centre is planning to construct a flyover over National Highway 37 that passes through Kaziranga National Park in Assam. At 35 kilometer in length, the flyover will have three segments, the first segment which will be around 18 kilometer in length will be the longest in India more than the length of the PVNR Express Highway in Hyderabad, which is 11.6 kilometer long.

Assam forest minister Mr Parimal Suklabaidya said that the National Highways Authority of India is preparing the detailed project report at present and the total cost of the flyover, which will be 11 metres wide, is expected to be around INR 2,600 crore. The work on the DPR is expected to be over within the next two months. Once that is done, the tender process would begin and work on the project is expected to start from next year. The NH 37 is also an animal corridor and used by small and big animals including elephants and rhinos. The main purpose for constructing the flyover is to protect the animals from being hit by vehicles while they cross the highway.
