Hitec City to JNTU Kukatpally Flyover, (ROB Beside Hyderabad Hitec City MMTS) Opened for Traffic

The much-delayed Kukatpally rail over bridge (ROB) was finally thrown open for general public on Saturday, giving relief to over two lakh commuters who use the Kukatpally- Madhapur road everyday. The bridge also provides connectivity between the old and new Bombay highways. Earlier in the day, the ROB was inaugurated by Union minister of statefor road transport and highways Sarvey Satyanarayana and state minister for municipal administration M Maheedhar Reddy.

The work on the 910-metre-long,four-lane bridge was taken up by Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) five years ago but it got delayed due to years of inaction of the Railways in giving permission.  The abnormal delay led to an increase in the project cost from Rs 28 crore to Rs 68crore.

The bridge starts from KPHB Phase IV (rear side), Kukatpally to Cyber Towers and lands near Hi-Tec City railway station on spinal road to ease congestion on the busy road. It also reduces the distance between Old Bombay Highway and the National Highway-9 by seven kms and very convenient, especially for those who want to reach Kukatpally from Mehdipatnam.

People who have bought apartments and villas in Kukatpally, Pragati Nagar, Nizampet Road, Bachupalli etc can rejoice now!  Travel to and fro from JNTU becomes a pleasure.

The only botleneck now is the JNTU junction itself.  This may remain a permanent problem due to presence of Metro along the Road in front of JNTU

Speaking on the occasion,Satyanarayana said he would recommend to the chief minister to name the ROB after YS Rajasekhara Reddy and P Janardhan Reddy, who cleared the project. Kukatpally MLA Jayaprakash Narayan said there was abnormal delay in completing the project due to delay in getting clearances from the railways.
