HYDERABAD: The KCR government on Friday accorded administrative approval for the construction of as many as 20 multi-level flyovers and junctions at an estimated cost of `2,631 crore in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits, underlining its ambition to transform the State capital into a global smart city.

The government gave the green signal to the project under Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP), after accepting suggestions from a high level committee constituted on the same. The project will be taken up under EPC tenders with deferred annuity payments.

The tender process will be completed in a month. The government set a deadline of two-and-a-half years for completion of the works. The GHMC has been authorized to appoint a suitable consultant at an appropriate time. “We will be holding consultations at the national level and will finalise a bid by Monday or Tuesday,” informed a GHMC official. The high level panel had first given its approval for the mega project after a meeting on July 8. According to GHMC officials, the State government has formulated the SRDP, which envisages skyways, grade separators, flyovers, major corridors and roads, to de-congest the city. “It is a strategic road development plan undertaken by the Telangana government to solve traffic problems,” said Dhan Singh, engineering chief, GHMC.

The State government had on May 30 given in-principle approval for the construction of 20 flyovers/junctions at an estimated cost of Rs 4,051, which includes the cost of land acquisition. The new flyovers/junctions will come up at KBR Park Entrance Jn; Maharaja Agrasen Jn. (Road No 12 Jn.); Cancer Hospital Junction (Road no. 10 Junction); Film Nagar; Road No 45 Jn; Jubilee Hills Check Post Jn. (Option II); LB Nagar Junction; Bairamalaguda Junction; Kamineni Hospital junction on inner ring road; Chintalakunta check-post; Rasoolpura; Uppal; Owaisi Hospital and Biodiversity Park Jn among others.
