HYDERABAD: Vehicular traffic and pedestrian movement will be made hassle-free at 11 major road junctions in Greater Hyderabad in two years from now, GHMC special officer Somesh Kumar has said.
The traffic police, Hyderabad Metro Rail and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board and other line departments are coordinating with each other to ensure a free flow of traffic.
Somesh Kumar, along with additional commissioner of police (traffic) Jithender, HMR managing director NVS Reddy and senior officials of various government departments, inspected traffic-heavy junctions such as Jubilee Hills Check-post, Maitrivanam, Ameerpet and Punjagutta on Wednesday.
The commissioner said the Jubilee Hills Check-post is a major junction of six roads and the line departments were planning to construct five multi-level flyovers near KBR Park. Encroachments and unauthorised constructions will be removed to pave way for multilevel flyover construction for which global tenders will be called in two weeks. Ten more similar flyovers were also being planned, he added.
The line departments are meeting every Wednesday to find ways of solving traffic congestion in the twin cities.
NVS Reddy said that the multilevel flyover palnned at Jubilee Hills Check-post would not affect the metro rail works.
Jithender said the main objective of the coordination visit was to sort out the issues and requested the GHMC and HMR to clear the material and equipments which were causing inconvenience to citizens and hampering the movement of motorists and pedestrians in these areas.
