The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has proposed to take up Transit Oriented Growth Centres (TOGC) at Outer Ring Road (ORR) interchanges in Hyderabad Metropolitan Region (HMR) to meet the travel demand, population and economic activities by 2041.

HMDA has taken up a Comprehensive Transportation Study (CTS) for HMR to address the traffic and transportation problems and investment strategies for 2041.

The CTS study recommended Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and proposed the extension of Metro Rail, MMTS, suburban railway networks and BRTS in the HMR. It has suggested the setting up of as many as 13 growth centres along the ORR at the interchanges of Metro Rail, MMTS, for the development of TOGC.

The TOGCs are proposed at loactions like Patancheru, Shameerpet, Gachibowli,  Ghatkesar, Tellapur/Nagulapalli, Thimmapur/Shamshabad, Tukkuguda, Keesara, Pedda Amberpet, Gowdaballi, Gundlapochampalli, Adibatla and Bonguluru. In this connection, HMDA has decided to engage consultants to carry out the feasibility study for 13 TOGCs and to prepare the concept plan and urban design using remote sensing and GIS techniques.

Speaking to Express, HMDA officials said that the HMDA wanted to prioritise the 13 TOGCs based on their roles and potentials of development and prepare a development strategy for 2013-2021 and 2021-2031.

The aim is to prepare concept plans for development of each TOGC,  examine and map its demographic, socio-economic characteristics and social infrastructure facilities, amenities, land uses and environmental aspects.

The consultant would be asked to carry out the reconnaissance survey for ground truthing with the actual features in the field and the delineate area to be considered suitable for TOGC development.  The study would work out the broad estimate of the development of all TOGCs.
