Major infrastructure developments are on the way in the northern corridor of Hyderabad. The state government is planning two megaprojects at an estimated cost of Rs 1250 crore. The idea is to decongest prime areas. The plan includes the construction of elevated corridors, underpasses, service roads, and other infra facilities along the Suchitra Junction-Gundlapochampally-Kalakkal stretches.
Another reason for initiating the projects is to ease congestion on the busy Hyderabad-Nagpur Highway. Elevated corridors are being proposed at Suchitra, dairy farm road and Dhulapally junctions, and other structures at the cost of Rs 450 crore that would cover a total of 10km.
Similar plans are on, on the Gundlapochampally-Kalakkal corridor, covering a distance of 17km. The project will cost Rs 800 crore for civil works, land acquisition costs, and other works. As per Telangana CM’s instructions, the Roads and Buildings Department, in association with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), has already prepared detailed project reports for the works, shared road and buildings minister Vemula Prasanth Reddy.
KCR’s move is aimed at addressing long-term traffic problems of residents in the Qutbullapur constituency. It will also reduce the traffic woes of people coming into the city from the Nizamabad, Adilabad, Medak, and Karimnagar districts.
