The bio-diversity flyover, closed within just a few days of being opened after a bizarre accident, was reopened after about 40 days today.

GHMC Mayor Dr Bonthu Rammohan and Cyberabad Police Commissioner V C Sajjanar, along with GHMC Zonal Commissioner Hari Chandana and Deputy Commissioner Venkanna, inspected the flyover after the completion of the safety works taken up by the GHMC, and opened it up for traffic.

The Chief Engineer informed the Mayor that as per the recommendations made by an expert committee, the GHMC had provided safety measures including bar markings, rumble strips, carriageway reduction signs, Merging Traffic Ahead signs, speed limit markings, warning signs as per the IRC and side view cutters, apart from announcements through mikes not to take selfies on the flyover.

The Chief Engineer also said that after the safety measures recommended by the expert committee were incorporated, the latter had conducted trial drives 10 to 12 times, and suggested studying and observation of vehicle movement behavior for a period of one month after the re-opening, based on which further safety measures could be taken up.

While inspecting the works on the flyover, Dr Rammohan and Sajjanar suggested that view cutters be provided on both sides for some more distance in order to prevent the taking of selfies, and that cameras be installed to identify the speeds of passing vehicles. They also wanted to know what precautions needed to be taken during non-peak hours to control the speeds of vehicles.
