In a couple of days, all friction and re-carpeting works on the P.V. Narasimha Rao Expressway is expected to be completed, with the work being done over these last few weeks without significant obstacles to traffic flow by Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA).
PVNR Expressway Recarpeting Works
Milling and recasting work on one section of the structure has already been completed by HMDA. The two-lane road works started in the summer last year and will be finished in July. The work was carried out by allowing traffic to Shamshabad Airport only via the Mehdipatnam route. Those who came to the city from the airport were allowed by the highway road.
Even though the works have been completed on one side, the exercise was to be replicated on the other side, but because of the monsoon, the work was put on hold. Meanwhile, during the lockdown, HMDA began milling and renovating work at the end of Mehdipatnam towards the airport.
In comparison to the other side of the NFDB (PVNR Expressway), which was refurbished, completely over 11.6 km, the repairing for another side was not required to be done fully. As many places, in particular, close to the Hyatt functional hall and other areas covering approximately four kilometers, some impoverished areas were found and the rest of this stretch was relatively good. The road repair work has thus been done to cover the bad patches. A large part of the work is already completed except for a balance of almost 300 meters. It is supposed to be done by Sunday.
After the launch of the Expressway in 2009, the recarpeting work has been started for the first time. At the price of Rs 9 crore, the 11.6 km long structure is recarpeted. This road renovation works during the lockdown were strengthened to prevent motorists from having trouble.
The renovation works of PVNR Expressway would give a new look to the area and have a free flow of traffic with new smooth roads.
