Senior officials of Hyderabad Metro Rail, GHMC, R&B, HMWS&SB, APCPDCL, AP Transco, L&T and traffic police of Hyderabad and Cyberabad, led by HMR managing director NVS Reddy, inspected the work on the 13-km-long Punjagutta-Miyapur stretch of Metro Rail Corridor-1 in the city on Thursday.

Reddy instructed the officers and engineers concerned to fill up potholes, improve the road surface, rectify water stagnation points, shift electrical poles and other obstructing utilities from the widened carriageway at a number of places where traffic bottlenecks were identified.

Some of the important decisions taken are shifting of electrical poles and transformers from carriageway in front of Big Bazar, Sitara Hotel, RS Brothers and Chowdhary Mansion in Ameerpet; widening and improvement of carriageway in front of Big Bazar, Chermas, Maitrivanam Complex, ESI Hospital and Erragadda. 

The road behind Big Bazar will be widened by acquiring two properties to make it a bypass road to overcome traffic congestion on the narrow road wedged by burial grounds  near Srinagar Colony junction. Acquisition of properties will be expedited to increase the Sanatanagar flyover-Moosapet carriageway to 200 feet. 

Royal Hatcheries, Chowdhary Mansion and other properties at Ameerpet will be acquired to widen the road to 150 feet.

CPDCL, Transco and L&T were asked to expedite shifting of HT overhead electrical lines at JNTU, Miyapur and IDL Dargah to facilitate L&T to take up pier (pillar) works at these locations.

L&T was asked to speed up station pier works and install more launching girders to build viaduct in stage-2 works between SR Nagar and Miyapur.
