Hyderabad: The snail pace of the work in construction of the Bahadurpura flyover on NH-44, which began over two years ago, is becoming a subject of concern. Jamming of roads and minor accidents has become common occurrence, especially in the peak hours.
It has been over two years that the works of Bahadurpura flyover has been kicked off on NH-44, but they have been moving at a snail’s pace. This often results in jammed roads and minor accidents, especially in the peak hours.
The busiest highway is witnessing traffic snarls and the incomplete work is choking the 75ft wide stretch for 2 km from Puranapul to Cross Road Bahadurpura.
Barricades right in the middle of road narrow down the stretch for almost 2 km because sea of vehicles is proceeding at a slow pace on the murky road.
Moreover, the damaged stores and building in the name of demolishment have been left without any repair or compensation.
The long-awaited bridge was proposed under the Strategic Road Development Program (SRDP) 2018. Foundation stone was laid by MAUD Minister K T Rama Rao. The overall project cost stands at a whopping Rs 69 crore, which includes laying of approach roads and other utility costs (Rs 23 crore).
Eight pillars have been grounded during the past one month. “Ever since the lockdown, in the absence of any traffic hurdles, we are able to erect another eight piers that had been pending for several months,” informed Dattu Panth, executive engineer, GHMC Project Wing. Works could make a great progress as men and material could be deployed from neighbouring states to ratchet up the pace,” said the official.
