Municipal Administration and IT Minister K T Rama Rao today laid the foundation stone for the project at the Nalgonda cross roads, along with ministers Mahmood Ali and Srinivas Yadav, Mayor B Rammohan, Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi and GHMC Commissioner Lokesh Kumar.
This corridor is expected to ease traffic problems in the area significantly, and cut short the road travel time.
