Union Minister for Road Transport and Water Resources Nitin Gadkari laid the foundation stone for the Amberpet flyover today.
A 15-year wait will end in a few months/years for the residents of Amberpet when the flyover, from Golnaka to the Ramanthapur TV studio via Sri Ramana theatre, becomes operational.
The flyover will ease the traffic congestion for local commuters, and also be a boon for the Warangal highway travellers.
Amberpet is the constituency of BJP MLA and floor leader G Kishan Reddy. The union minister responded positively to a request made by Reddy to extend the proposed flyover by 200 metres to cover Golnaka, and instructed officials to prepare a DPR for that.
Addressing people after laying the foundation stone for four key infrastructure projects for the city today, the union minister said that he had also approved the Telangana government's request for introducing inland waterways on the river Godavari. Apart from issuing instructions to the inland waterways department to prepare a Detailed Project Report on the proposal, Gadkari also announced a sanction of Rs. 2,000 crores for the project.
Gadkari also sanctioned Rs. 5,500 crores for a regional ring road that will cover the Sangareddy-Gajwel-Choutuppal route and the Choutuppal-Shadnagar-Kandi route. He also sanctioned Rs. 1,000 crores for four laning of the Nizamabad and Madnoor stretches.
Heaping praises on the Telangana government for taking up the Kaleswaram project, he said that the state was setting an example for other states.
"All the hurdles for Kaleswaram have been cleared save for one file, which will also be cleared shortly," he said.
In a separate function organized at the state BJP office at Nampally, about 1,000 persons including educationists joined the BJP in the presence of the minister. Those who joined the saffron party included former vice-chancellor of Kakatiya university Y Vaikuntham, senior Congress leader Amar Singh, actress Madhavi Latha, film director Ajay Koundinya, and Secunderabad Bar Association president J V S Ramaiah.
