MCH not taking up all pillars at a time

Work in progress on 15 and nine pillars on Punjagutta and Greenlands sides Chandrayangutta flyover may be completed before scheduleDiscom promises to complete shifting of poles within 15 days

HYDERABAD: The prestigious Punjagutta-Greenlands flyover will be completed as per schedule by February 2007 and the construction work was proceeding at a brisk pace, asserted MCH Commissioner Sanjay Jaju here on Saturday.

While foundation work for about 15 pillars of the total 45 was being done for the Punjagutta side, nine of the 42 pillars were being constructed for the Greenlands side.

The MCH was not taking up all pillars work at a time to avoid traffic snag, he said after inspecting the works.

Brisk pace

There was every likelihood of the Chandrayanagutta flyover to be completed before its scheduled date while Nalgonda flyover work was going at a brisk pace.

Mr. Jaju also inspected construction sites for the two road overbridges at Seethaphalmandi and Jamai Osmania. The Jamai Osmania road overbridge was almost complete and finishing touches were to be given in two months time.

The Seethaphalmandi ROB work was held up as 20 more private properties were yet to be acquired and electric poles had to be shifted too.

The Central Power Distribution Company Limited (CPDCL) has promised to complete shift of the poles within 15 days and the Corporation had already remitted Rs. 41 lakh towards the same.

The foot overbridge at Secunderabad will be coming up right opposite the railway station with the location being finalised today.

The Begumpet FoB can be put to use by next month-end while the Dilsukhnagar FoB work was nearing completion.

The Commissioner also issued a stern warning to Hotel Ramakrishna near the Oliphant bridge for letting out its waste into the stormwater drain and also keeping its backyard dirty. Permission to run the hotel will be revoked if the hotel does not clean up its act.
