HYDERABAD: Anju Infrastructure, a Chinese company, prepared the designs for a four-lane bridge to be built across Durgam Cheruvu in the city. The designs are modelled on meditation, candle flower, tree leaves and lotus flower.

Anju Infrastructure vice-president Hussei Khazaei, director Yogesh, India head Manoj Gandhi and PRO R Swati called on Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at his camp office here on Friday and gave a  PowerPoint presentation on the designs.

The delegation told Rao that they planned to construct the bridge in 11 stages and complete it in 25 months. They also offered to build a 41-km-long east-west corridor along the Musi, a 25-km-long skyway and a 15-km-long roadway. The delegation  exhibited the designs of the east-west corridor which is to be constructed in 40 months.

The company officials informed Rao that they would require around 2,500 labourers for the two projects and proposed to employ locals in large numbers.

The Chinese were also preparing designs for tunnels and pump houses for the Pranahita-Chevella irrigation project and the designs will be submitted to the chief minister by February 20. The delegation promised to complete the projects at less cost and less time. Rao said his government would take a decision soon on the designs and  construction.

During his visit to China, Rao invited Chinese companies to partner in the infrastructure development programmes in Telangana. Later, a Chinese delegation had a detailed meeting with him here. Following it up, Anju Infra produced the  bridge and skyway designs.
