Fact check:

The claim that the image is the new 'Design of Vaishnavdevi circle, Ahmedabad' is FALSE.

When searched using reverse image search in Yandex, we found that the image is a decade old image published in several Ukrainian and Russian Websites in 2011.

This image was a graphic representation of Shuliavsky overpass. This overpass was planned for construction at a junction in Kyiv city, Ukraine.

According to a report in https://kiev.vgorode.ua/, at a meeting of the city planning council, three best projects for the reconstruction of the Shuliavsky overpass were presented. This was reported by the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration. The projects were discussed by architects and well-known specialized specialists in the construction of transport structures. The deputy head of the Kyiv city state administration Alexander Spasibko said that the reconstruction work of the Shuliavsky overpass was scheduled for the end of 2017.

The same viral image was shared in another Ukrainian news publication vcrti.com.

A report published in autocentre.ua dated 6 October 2011 states that The Kyiv authorities plan to begin reconstruction of the Shuliavsky overpass and the Karavaevy dacha overpass within three years.

Over the years the image has been enhanced and shared in many other news reports concerning the Shuliavsky overpass.

The construction work of flyovers is going on at Vaishnavdevi Circle which can be seen in this news report by the Times of India.

Therefore, the viral image does not show the design of the Vaishnav Devi Circle, but is a representative design of an overpass in Ukraine designed in 2011.

The claim is FALSE.
