A part of the bridge at Dabeerpura was thrown open for traffic a few months ago.
The authorities claimed to have completed repairs on this part of the bridge but the fact remains that road joints are not patched with steel plates, leaving gaps between them.
Steel plates were fixed only at about three places on the stretch from Chanchalguda side.
The other part of the bridge still remains closed for repairs and its completion seems to be most uncertain, looking at the pace of the ongoing work.

not on time
Of late, it is observed that there are not many buses to Vijayanagar Colony, besides the very few buses that are operated do not maintain punctuality, particularly on the Mehdipatnam-Mallepally route and further.
Further, there are no bus shelters at Asifnagar and Mallepally bus stops.
The authorities should take note of these problems as summer is fast approaching and many commuters travel in different buses from these stops.
Gachibowli main road is one of the most important roads from Tolichowki to HCU.
It is the link route to the Financial District and also to the big Information Technology parks such as DLF and TCS.
But it lacks a pavement and lot of employees walk on the road to either board buses near DLF signal or hangout at many eateries on this road, specially near Vinayak Nagar.
Considering that many more Information Technology parks are going to come up on this road and consequently increase the number of walkers, a pavement is urgently needed in order to ensure the safety of pedestrians.
