The time has come when Hyderabad needs good roads. The people of Hyderabad should perform SANMAN at L B Stadium to all the contractors who have laid these roads and engineers who supervised them. Will this country become a developed state by 2047 ?

The Mehadipatnam flyover is constructed at an estimated cost of nearly Rs. 500 crores, do any of the 'intellectuals' in the government think the traffic problem could be easily solved by three small flyovers at Sarojini eye hospital, Rethibowli, Aramgarh junction? The rest of the road which is already enough for at least 12 lanes could be well devloped with 6-lane main road and 2-lane service road on each side. All this will come at a cost of not more than 100 crores as per current estimates. The rest 400-500 crores would have fed the other flyovers and development activities in the city. Wake up Hyderabad, the flyover is going to be a historical symbol for fools and blunder for rest.

Appreciate the efforts in bringing up the issue. The Government, including the MCH, is totally responsible to repair and maintain roads by utilising funds in a proper manner with sincerety.

Sorry Faisal, all your Taxes are being spend by the politicians on freebies and concessions they promise during the elections. So guess, you will have to put up with it. Thank goodness, atleast some part of the road is black-topped:-)

Imagine the situation of other old city parts of Hyderabad when posh localities like Marredpally and Filmnagar have such bad roads. I stay at Malakpet and I commute to Jubilee Hills for my work daily. The entire journey right from my home to Masab Tank is so horrible, it literally is a testing experience for one's backbone and vehicle. I request the authorities to immediately repair all the roads of the twin cities. When we pay our taxes we expect our money to be spent at least on the basic infrastructure that we deserve.
