Hyderabad: In order to ease traffic flow in Uppal and Amberpet areas, the Union Government has accorded permission for two elevated corridors. The proposals were pending for over a decade.
Following the permission Municipal administration and urban development minister K.T. Rama Rao has advised officials to complete the land acquisition within two months so as to expedite the project.
As mentioned by the minister in a circular, the Telangana government has accorded top priority to these projects. He disclosed that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao spoke to Union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari over phone, while he himself followed this up by holding talks with municipal and highways authorities on May 1 in New Delhi.
As reported by Deccan Chronicle the elevated corridor from Uppal to Nandanavanam Bhagyanagar is estimated to cost Rs 960 crore, of which Rs 330 crore is going for land acquisition. The corridor would hopefully end the traffic woes of vehicles coming to Hyderabad from Warangal and also ease the city traffic on Uppal, Secunderabad and L.B. Nagar routes.
