Hyderabad: Osmania University to become closed campus – Know its implementation

Hyderabad: Osmania University is set to transition into a closed campus, with plans to restrict automotive traffic. This change will be implemented upon the completion of a link road, which will circumvent the campus and connect the Vidyanagar-Amberpet side with Adikmet and Tarnaka.

After completion of the link road, entry into the university campus can be possible only upon producing valid varsity identity cards, Telangana Today reported.

Osmania University will also issue stickers for the vehicles of the students and staff of the varsity. Even the visitors of the campus will be provided with the pass.

Though the restrictions will be imposed on the automotive traffic, morning walkers and joggers will be allowed on the varsity campus. However, they have to park their vehicle outside the varsity campus.

For the link road, Hyderabad Road Development Corporation Limited (HRDCL) has invited the tenders. The road is expected to be completed in 6-8 months.
