HYDERABAD: Hyderabad Metro Rail and traffic police officials conducted a joint inspection of Metro Rail Corridor-III work on the Ameerpet-Yousufguda-Jubilee Hills-Hitec City stretch on Thursday. HMR managing director NVS Reddy and additional commissioner of police (traffic) Jitender reviewed the progress of work on the metro interchange station at Ameerpet.
Reddy asked L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited (L&TMRHL) engineers to take up parallel construction of Corridor-I and Corridor-III structures so as to speed up the progress of this complicated interchange station.
Sanctioning the work for covering the open nala with a slab near Sarathi Studios, he advised L&TMRHL engineers to start it immediately to facilitate entry and exit points of the Corridor-III portion of the station. Instructions were issued to L&TMRHL engineers to widen the road at the newly-acquired timber depot and other properties for better movement of traffic.
It was decided to lay a proper footpath along the compound wall of Sarathi Studios.
Widening of the carriageway on the Yousufguda-Madhuranagar stretch, immediate restoration of the carriageway between Madhuranagar and PJR statue in Yousufguda basti are the other decisions taken during the inspection. An alternative road will be laid from KVB Stadium in Yousufguda to Road No. 2 of Jubilee Hills via Venkatagiri to facilitate easy traffic.
Jitender advised L&TMRHL to remove construction equipment, especially at high-density traffic points, as and when construction was completed and increase the carriageway width. L&TMRHL was also asked to have timelines mentioned clearly on the barricades to ensure that works are completed as per the agreed deadlines.
Inspecting the plans for location of individual pillars in Hitec City area, Reddy advised engineers to relocate some pillars so as not to obstruct flow of traffic on the stretch between Hitec City and Raidurg.
