Pedda Amberpet-Shamshabad stretch to be thrown open
The Outer Ring Road (ORR) stretch between Pedda Amberpet and Shamshabad has almost taken shape and the authorities hope to bring into use by December 15.
Most of the road work has already been completed on the eight lane access controlled expressway but for a rotary at Shamshabad junction.
The nearly 33.3 km stretch, part of the ORR project's northern arc, when completed would facilitate smooth flow of vehicular traffic between Pedda Amberpet and Shamshabad.
From Pedda Amberpet, the road winds its way through Koheda, Bongulur, Tukkuguda before connecting near the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.
According to the HMDA officials, the remaining work at the National Highway to Bangalore would have also been taken care of by now but for heavy rains disrupting the pace of work.
“The stretch is ready. Only this bit of work got a bit delayed due to heavy rains and is holding us back,” informed the HMDA Commissioner, Rajeshwar Tiwari.
The remaining work and finishing touches would be completed in a month's time, provided the rains do not come placing obstacles in the work progress, he added.
The Pedda Amberpet to Shamshabad bit is part of the ORR IIA works taken up along with that between Narsingi and Patancheru.
This 62.3 km long work was divided into five stretches as Narsingi-Kolluru, Kolluru-Patancheru, Pedda Amberpet-Bongulur, Bongulur-Tukkuguda and Tukkuguda-Shamshabad.
