Hyderabad: Hyderabad is going to get a 390-meter-login skywalk at Mehdipatnam to facilitate pedestrians. It will be equipped with 11 elevators.
The skywalk that will help pedestrians in moving from one part of the busy junction to another will have five hop-on stations.
The hop-on stations will be near Rythu Bazar, the Defence compound wall, the Mehdipatnam bus bay area, Asif Nagar police station, and the Gudimalkapur junction.
Mehdipatnam skywalk is being built by HMDA
The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) is building the Skywalk at a cost of Rs. 32.97 crores. As the skywalk will have shops, the HMDA will also generate revenue from it.
As the work is in full swing, it is expected that the skywalk will be opened to the public by May 2023.
The skywalk will not only help pedestrians in crossing the roads but also ensures hassle-free ride for commuters.
Its height and width would be 6.15 meters and 4 meters respectively. Elevator chairs are also likely to be arranged for physically challenged persons.
