HYDERABAD: While Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy throws open the Jamia Osmania road overbridge in a couple of days’ time, a project that took a decade in making, GHMC is also planning to get ready other flyovers by next month.
Trumpet-shaped Nalgonda flyover is to be completed by September 10 with officials indicating that only balance works like building crash barriers and surface black topping have to be completed.
At about the same time, the second part of Punjagutta flyover beginning from ICICI Bank to Topaz Building on crossing the junction will be completed.
This second part with two-and-a-half lanes allows for one-way traffic for vehicles from Jubilee Hills and moving towards Somajiguda.
The main flyover beginning near the Chief Minister’s residence, jumps over Rajiv Gandhi, Punjagutta and NFCL junctions with one arm dropping beside Vengal Rao Park and another crossing Chutney’s restaurant.
There is some good news on the Chandrayanagutta flyover front as all works are to be finished by September 15.
The GHMC, tired of delays, decided to take away pavement work from the main contractor.
First part of Greenlands flyover starting before the Chief Minister’s house and joining the existing Begumpet flyover will be ready by the same time with all objections raised by the Railways cleared.
But work on the second part crossing the railway track and dropping near the Hyderabad Public School gate will go on till December.
Dr. Reddy will also inaugurate the four-storied ‘Metro Bhavan’ to house the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited, which will facilitate the construction and running of the elevated metro project.
