Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy formally inaugurated the first two phases of the Mahatma Gandhi Inner Ring Road of Guntur from his camp office here on Sunday.

The two phases of the road were laid at a cost of Rs 29 crore by the Vijayawada, Guntur, Tenali and Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority (VGTMUDA). The chief minister asked the officials concerned to complete the remaining phases of the road at the earliest.

VGTMUDA has taken up the development of 80-foot-wide, four-lane Inner Ring Road for Guntur city. It will run for a length of 6.34 km and have a four-lane carriage way and a central median. It starts at Autonagar on the old National Highway-5 and passes through Agathavarappadu, Gorantla, Pedapalakaluru, Turakapalem, Nallapadu, and joins NH-5 at Ankireddypalem. The completed first and second phases of the road run via Autonagar and JKC College Road.

The IRR, when completed, will ease traffic congestion in the core city of Guntur. Traffic from the western and northern sides  of the city will be diverted without the need for entering the city. Inter linkages among surrounding villages will be created which will spur development of peripheral areas.

VGTMUDA chairman M Srinivasa Reddy, ministers Pithani Satyanarayana and Kasu Venkata Krishna Reddy, MLC Ilapuram Venkayya, special officer Usha Kumari and other officials and non-officials were also present.
