Hyderabad: Traffic woes between the bustling Indira Park and VST area in Hyderabad are expected to see a significant improvement as the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) gears up to open a steel flyover, aimed at enhancing public convenience. GHMC Commissioner Ronald Rose announced this development on Monday, emphasizing the corporation’s dedication to easing traffic congestion.
Accompanied by Musheerabad MLA M Gopal and project engineering officials, GHMC Commissioner Ronald Rose conducted an inspection of the ongoing works at the steel flyover site. The endeavor falls within the purview of the Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP), with the goal of enhancing the signal-free transportation system in Greater Hyderabad and minimizing traffic disruptions. Of the 48 planned works under SRDP, 35 have already been completed, and a determined effort has been put forth to promptly finish the remaining 13 projects.
MLA Gopal noted that Telangana Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao (KTR) is scheduled to inaugurate the steel flyover shortly. Spanning an impressive 2.62 kilometers, the steel flyover is equipped with four lanes, constituting a bi-directional elevated corridor. This infrastructure marvel is being constructed as a part of the Telangana Government’s ambitious SRDP, with an estimated budget of Rs 450 crore.
Currently, commuters navigating through Indira Park, Ashok Nagar, and RTC X Roads encounter significant congestion while traveling to destinations such as Osmania University, Tarnaka, Amberpet, and Uppal. However, the impending inauguration of the Indira Park-VST steel flyover promises to alleviate traffic bottlenecks at three major junctions in the central city area: VST Junction, Indira Park X-Road, and RTC X-Roads.
As part of their visit, both MLA Gopal and GHMC Commissioner Ronald Rose toured Indira Park. Commissioner Rose interacted with park visitors, discussing upgrades and enhancements to park facilities. The impending completion of the steel flyover and its anticipated impact on traffic flow underlines GHMC’s commitment to improved urban mobility and enhanced public amenities.
