The government has given a green signal for the construction of a four-lane bi-directional elevated corridor from Indira Park to VST and a second level three-lane bi-directional flyover from Ram Nagar to Baghlingampally. The GHMC is constructing these structures at an estimated cost of Rs 426 crore.
Upcoming Steel Flyovers in Hyderabad Under SRDP
On 11 July 2020, Mr. KT Rama Rao (Municipal Government and City Development Minister) laid the foundation for the construction of elevated corridor steel flyovers in Hyderabad. These independent flyovers will be constructed with steel and will have steel piers, steel pier caps, and steel girders with cast-in-situ deck slabs.
The reason for constructing a steel bridge elevated corridor from Indira Park to VST is that it makes it simpler to complete the work much earlier than the conventional structure. While steel bridge works cost an extra 20-30%, but works would be completed faster, and road users prevented from the inconvenience.
Estimated Cost of Steel Bridges
The flyovers are being taken up under the Strategic Road Development Programme (SRDP). Excluding the land acquisition cost the estimated price of both flyovers are:
- The 2.610km elevated corridor from Indira Park to VST junction will be constructed at the cost of Rs 350 crore.
- An Independent flyover of 0.850km from Ramnagar to Baghlingampally will cost Rs 76 crore.
Apart from this, the Telangana Government is also planning for executing 36 km long skyways on the Nagpur and Ramagundam highways to be constructed at the cost of Rs. 5000 crore.
Most buyers were interested in investing in Hyderabad properties due to several advantages, in particular road infrastructure and initiatives aimed at ensuring the free flow of traffic as traffic jams have become a daily feature in many cities.
The government initiatives for developing infrastructure facilities would help to strengthen Hyderabad's real-estate.
