Hyderabad’s second cable bridge to emerge

The exemplary Durgam Cheruvu cable-stayed bridge was constructed by the GHMC in alliance with Larsen and Toubro under the Strategic Road Development Programme. The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority is now hoping to construct a similar cable-stayed bridge along the Mir Alam tank. 

The six-lane structure will augment over two kilometers connecting Bengaluru Highway with Chintalmet. The construction will serve numerous purposes in the steady flow of traffic, enhancing scenery, and stimulating tourism. It is a high-traffic passageway and traffic jams prevail continually on this way. Since construction would be along with the Mir Alam tank, many lands or properties will not have to be obtained. 

The Durgam Cheruvu was inaugurated on September 25 last year, and on weekends the traffic is discontinued. Many musical events and cultural programs are coordinated to provide recreation to citizens and visitors. The bridge has assisted in decongesting traffic and is the world’s longest precast with a segmental span of 233.85 meters. The cable-stayed bridge fraction is 435 meters long comprising the paths at both borders, 25.8 meters wide with an aggregate of 52 stay cables.
