HYDERABAD: Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Commissioner and Special Officer C.V.S.K. Sarma has pulled up the officials concerned after he noticed the tardy pace of work on flyovers and other issues like glowing of streetlights during his late night inspection on Thursday.

Dr. Sarma was furious over the slow progress of Chandrayanagutta flyover and the delay in construction of the ramp on the DRDL side. He demanded an explanation from engineers and the contractor concerned. He ordered them to complete the ramp within a week and said he would come again to check on the work.

Similarly, he was upset when he noticed streetlights not glowing at several spots, especially in the old city. He told his staff to ensure there was improvement in this aspect and he would be visiting the same areas in the next few days to see for any improvement in glowing.

The Nalgonda flyover undergoing construction too was criss-crossed by the Commissioner and his team including Additional Commissioners N.V.S. Reddy (Traffic & Transportation), K. Dhananjaya Reddy (Planning & Projects), Rammohana Rao (Health & Sanitation), B. Ramesh Babu (Works), Devanand (Streetlights & Parks) and others.

The road work has to be taken up on a priority basis and completed within the stipulated time since this flyover too was already delayed, he pointed out. Sewage overflow on both sides of the flyover should be checked and the issue taken up with the Water Works Department.

The GHMC officials visited the Jamia Osmania flyover which is at last ready for inauguration by Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy very soon after seven years since the construction work began. Dr. Reddy would also to lay the foundation stone for the Rs.22-crore Raj Bhavan to Balkampet road.
