Goodbye gridlock: KTR inaugurates four-lane Hi-Tech City Road under Bridge

Hyderabad: Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development KT Rama Rao along with GHMC Mayor Vijayalaxmi Gadwal on Monday inaugurated new four-lane Road under Bridge (RuB) near Hitech City MMTS station.

The Hi-Tech City RuB is one of the projects on the corridor from Gachibowli to JNTU which has been earmarked as one of the top priorities under the Comprehensive Traffic Study report. It was taken up under Phase-I of Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP).

This road will resolve the problems of inundation under the railway line and traffic jams. Whenever there used to be slight rainfall, traffic, in general, would come to a standstill beneath the Railway Line creating a gridlock situation in the vicinity. After RuB is opened for traffic, this problem will be resolved.

With its completion, 10.25 km Gachibowli to JNTU road will be a conflict-free corridor.

In view of the geographical constraints at the site for gravity disposal of stormwater, an RCC sump with 800 kilolitre capacity has been constructed beneath the approach road to Kukatpally side. To bail out the stormwater during the downpour, two sensor responsive 40HP pumps are installed.

Further, as there is continuous seepage of approximately 35,000 – 40,000 Liters per day is planned to utilize this storage of fresh water in the sump for daily watering for plantation in the nearby locations in Moosapet Circle 14.

The length of the bidirectional RuB including approaches is 410 meters in length and 20.60 meters wide. The service road width on Hitech Cityside is nine meters while 11 meters in Kukatpally side.

The RuB was built at an estimated cost of Rs 66.59 crore. The cost of approaches and diversion of Storm Water Drain by GHMC is Rs 42.50 crore, and cost of RuB portion by the SCR (with deposit funds from GHMC is Rs 24.09 crore)
