Apart from the staircase, there will be elevators and lifts for the passengers to access the skywalk. Elevator chairs are also likely to be arranged for physically challenged persons.

The height and width of the skyway would be 6.15 meters and 4 meters respectively.

It is expected that the skywalk will improve the vehicular movement at Mehdipatnam as the pedestrian will have a better option to travel from one side of the PV Narasimha Rao Expressway to another.

The estimated cost of the project is Rs. 33 crores.
