Hyderabad: The first phase of the flyover at the Biodiversity junction is all set to be thrown open for the public on May 21.
This carriageway is likely to decongest the traffic on old Mumbai highway from Gachibowli side to Mehdipatnam.
Estimated to have been built at the cost of Rs 30.26 Crore, the work on the project was started by M. Venkata Rao Infra Projects Private limited in 2016.
However, the 690 m three-lane unidirectional flyover is not the only project bagged by the AP based company. Under the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) Turnkey (package- IV), it is also constructing multi level/ grade separators at 4 junctions, --Mind space, Ayyappa Society, Rajiv Gandhi Statue (including the widening and strengthening of existing grade road at mind space) and the flyover at Biodiversity junction – at an estimated cost of Rs 379 Crore.
Based in Visakhapatnam, M.Venkata Rao Infra Projects Private, an unlisted private company, was incorporated in 2005. The company has five directors. They include Venkata Rao Muppana, Rama Krishna Prasad Rao Muppana and Sitadevi Muppana who are on the board for more than 14 years. Pratik Vasprad Muppana was appointed director on May 12, 2016.
The flyover at Biodiversity junction is not the first project in Hyderabad. The company has also laid Cement concrete roads in LB Nagar circle. It has also designed and constructed the grade separators at Hitech city road.
"With the completion of this 1st and 2nd level flyover, a conflict free traffic flow has been facilitated from Bio-diversity junction ( old Mumbai highway ) to JNTU ( National Highway-65), said a GHMC official.
