Construction of Uppal flyover leads to the traffic jams in Hyderabad
Construction of the second-longest Flyover in Telangana, Uppal Flyover, is struggling with delays due to the land acquisition process. These unwanted situations appear to have enhanced the miseries of daily commuters. Stretched for over 11.5km starts at Uppal and ends at Central Power Research Institute, Medipally.
This six-lane corridor which starts at Uppal Junction, is going towards the Warangal highway and provides a smooth road for the people of Uppal.
Officers of the Roads & Buildings (R&B) Department informed that they are still expecting one hectare of land acquisition near Nalla Cheruvu.
Saroja Rani, chief engineer (projects), GHMC, said, "Land acquisition for the Uppal elevated corridor is still in progress."
"The corridor will have 148 pillars and the works were expedited for erecting slabs on pillars through the precast method. The State government is doing land acquisition for 1.5 km," told an official from the R&B department.
The estimated project cost is Rs 675 crore and is yet to complete a 6 km stretch, causing the delay. The precast method is being used for the construction of the Uppal flyover.
