Traffic congestion may ease at Greenlands

One arm of Begumpet-Fatehnagar link road to be opened from April next year



Sluggish:Work on the link road between Begumpet and Fatehnagar is moving at a snail's pace.


HYDERABAD: Road users can now hope for a hassle-free drive on the busy Greenlands Junction in Begumpet as the GHMC is planning to open one arm of the Begumpet-Fatehnagar link road from April next year.

Works pertaining to Road-under-Bridge (RuB) at Fatehnagar have already begun after South Central Railway (SCR) granted permission. SCR has also restricted speed limit of trains between Nature Cure Hospital and Fatehnagar railway stations to expedite construction works through box pushing technique. Senior officials said construction of a flyover abutting Katta Maisamma temple near Begumpet was completed while works related to two other flyovers at Daniyalgutta and Indiragandhipuram was under progress.

Senior GHMC officials along with Deputy Mayor Jaffer Hussain Miraz visited the site recently and reviewed the works. While one lane of the two-km link road starts from Hanuman temple in Begumpet, another one starts at Katta Maisamma temple next to Hyderabad Public School (HPS) and connects Balkampet and Fatehnagar flyover.

Commuters from Secunderabad heading towards Fatehnagar will have to get onto the lane abutting Varun Motors at the beginning of Greenlands flyover. They will have to go underneath the flyover to reach the RuB and the link road to reach Yellamma temple in Balkampet.

In the return direction, motorists coming towards Secunderabad from Balkampet or Sanathnagar will be reaching the Katta Maisamma temple near HPS via another arm of the link road. “We are planning to open one arm of the link road connecting the stretch from Varun Motors at Greenlands flyover to Yellamma temple in Balkampet shortly,” GHMC Engineer-in-Chief P. Panduranga Rao said.

He explained that the inauguration of another arm connecting service road adjacent to Fatehnagar flyover to HPS would be delayed further owing to land acquisition problem. “Consultations with land owners are already on and it may be resolved soon,” he said.
