Hyderabad: The center makes room for higher passageways throughout the cantonment

The Ministry of Military has given its approval for the building of elevated lanes on the Hyderabad-Nagpur National Highway and the Karimnagar Rajiv Rahadari, across military lands in Hyderabad. The sanction would enable the construction of transportation links that connect to North Telangana. The state government has suggested elevated lanes on the Hyderabad-Nagpur National Highway from Paradise Junction to Kandlakoya Junction and on the Karimnagar Rajiv Rahadari from Jubilee Bus Station, Patny to Thumkunta-Shameerpet.

During their January 5 meeting in Delhi, Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy urged Defense Minister Rajnath Singh to approve the construction of elevated walkways over defense lands. The Union government granted permission orders for the building of the elevated pathways on Friday in response to the chief minister’s request. The chief minister expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the defense minister, and MoD authorities for approving the corridor construction, which would aid in Hyderabad’s growth.

The chief minister asked the defense minister to set aside 83 acres of land for the construction of an 11.30 km long elevated corridor that would connect Hyderabad to Karimnagar-Ramagundam. The corridor would run from Paradise Junction to ORR Junction on Rajiv Road, and entry and exit ramps would also be built. Additionally, the chief minister asked the minister of defense to transfer 56 acres of defense land so that 18.30 km of corridors could be built on the Nagpur Highway (NH-44) between Paradise Junction near Kandlakoya and ORR. Of that length, 12.68 km would be built as an elevated six-lane corridor with four exits and entries, and the remaining 18.30 km would be built as a double-decker (for metro) corridor in the future.

The districts of Nizamabad, Adilabad, Karimnagar, and Ramagundam in North Telangana will see the development of a transportation network. Authorities think that the corridors might provide a solution for Secunderabad’s increasing traffic issue. The fast-paced growth of Hyderabad’s northern side will be aided by the construction of these corridors connecting Shameerpet and Kandlakoya.

Revanth said that the previous government’s “arrogant attitude” caused the elevated corridors’ construction to be halted for years.

The chief minister remembered that on each of his trips to New Delhi, he brought memoranda to the Union ministers asking them to take up state matters. He said that he would keep friendly connections with the Center and is prepared to meet with anybody to defend the interests of the state. Revanth said unequivocally that Telangana’s interests are the top priority on his agenda.
