Telangana Gears Up For Roadways Revamp

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao asked officials to gear up for revamp and expansion of roads across Telangana.
Hyderabad | 19th October 2016
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on October 19 held a review meeting with his Cabinet ministers, officials of the GHMC and other departments on the future of roads and roadways in Telangana, and briefed them about the current works being taken up by the government in providing safe, aesthetically pleasing and modern roadways to the State.

Speaking at the meeting, the Chief Minister emphasized the need to build accident-free roads in Telangana. In order to achieve this, he directed the concerned officials to prepare a model of futuristic roadways and revamp entire road infrastructure of the State.

KCR prioritized all regions within Telangana and said that unlike the previous governments, he would provide superior road infrastructure to all districts, villages, towns and cities equally.

He expressed his satisfaction over the Centre's approval (funds) of the construction of 2,500 km of domestic roadways and national highways, and asked officials to prepare a vision document to include these to road development.

Apart from this, the Telangana government also envisions the construction of 330 km of Regional Ring Roads (RRR) at the intersection of several districts across Telangana, including around Hyderabad. HMDA, under the Land Pooling arrangement, has okayed to spend its resources on constructing the RRRs and also 20 junctions and toll plazas across the State at 20 intersections.

The CM expressed his anguish over the increasing number of road accidents on highways and ordered officers to construct bypasses around villages and connect them with highways, instead of them through villages. This could, as per experts, bring the death toll drastically, he said.

KCR went on to elaborate several other internal details about the government's plan to expand roadways and grids.

He asked the officials to conduct a case study on international standards in road construction being used in developed nations across the world, and implement it in Telangana.

Finally, he said that he wants the erstwhile "backward" State to become a role model to all other states.
