HYDERABAD: While connectivity to the new airport has become a cause of concern for general public, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), promoter of the facility, has assured that the issues were being addressed.

The State government has taken up the widening of inner ring road on a war-footing, while the 11.6-km-long P.V. Narasimha Rao Elevated Expressway would be complete by December.

At a press conference here on Monday, Director of the GHIAL C. Prasanna said that the expressway would be completed to a distance of 5.5 km by June.

Major routes

The major routes to the new airport would be – Seunderabad-Tarnaka-Uppal-L.B.Nagar-Chandrayangutta-Srisailam Highway; Begumpet-Punjagutta-Masab Tank-Attapur-Aramgarh Junction; Hitech City-Gachibowli-Toli Chowki-Attapur-Aramgarh; and Jubilee Hills Checkpost-Filmnagar-Sheikpet-Toli Chowki-Aramgarh.

30 buses

He said that the travel time would not be more than an hour in any of the directions. The GHIAL would operate 30 AC buses from four locations at half-an-hour frequency at a cost of Rs. 95 per trip to transport passengers. For time-sensitive passengers, ‘Vlinks’ and ‘Easy Cabs’ would run 700 GPS-enabled cabs. Over 100 cars would be available for executive rental. The GHMC was synchronising traffic signals.
