HYDERABAD: The long pending construction of Cable Stayed Bridge (CSB) across Durgam Cheruvu Lake at Madhapur will be taken up finally by the state government giving green signal for the jinxed project.
CSB would help easing traffic problems and will cater to commuters travelling to IT Park, Gachibowli, Nanakramguda and surrounding areas. It will be a four-lane suspension bridge from Ambedkar Open University to Mindspace over Durgam Cheruvu. Further, the scope of CSB work was modified due to addition of two vents at Road No. 45 and extra widening at curves.
Due to the substantial growth in companies in Hitech City and Gachibowli, there is traffic congestion, especially on Road No.36 in Jubilee Hills.

The CSB would be taken up under Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) at a cost of around `146 crore. The cost would be shared by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC).
State government permitted GHMC commissioner to start the work by entering into an agreement with the company and to acquire lands and properties for construction of CSB.
Along with CSB work, it was planned by government to develop the lake as a tourist spot.
