Hyderabad: The ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH) has sanctioned Rs. 928 crores for the expansion of NH-63 that runs from ORR Appa Junction in Hyderabad to Manneguda in Vikarabad into a four-lane highway.

Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari made the formal announcement through a Twitter post. He tweeted, "Construction work for 4-laning of NH-63 from Hyderabad (ORR Appa Junction) to Manneguda under NH (O) has been approved in the state of Telangana with a budget of Rs. 928.41 Cr."

G. Kishan Reddy, the Union minister for culture, tourism, and development of northeastern region and MP from Secunderabad, retweeted Mr. Gadkari's tweet with a quote thanking both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Union minister for the fund allocation. He wrote, "I thanks PM Sh @narendramodi & Sh @nitin_gadkari on behalf of the people of #Telangana for approving the 4-laning of NH-63 Hyderabad (Appa Junction)-Mannarguda stretch with an outlay of Rs.928.41 cr. This will improve inter-state road connectivity & ensure further growth."

The NH-63, especially the ORR Appa Junction, is an area that frequently witnesses road accidents. The proposed four-laning is expected to reduce the traffic and bring some respite to the issue of road accidents.
