Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government is attempting to make the lives of people easier by completing various projects in the Srinagar city which include a two-tube flyover from Jehangir Chowk to Rambagh in the city.

The state government has conducted several projects in Jammu and Kashmir between 2013 and 2019.
