Overwhelming respose to Lanco hills

With the kind of advertising they did, we can expect a lot of bakras to buy.
They may or may not build the signature tower to the stated height, but in the meantime it is a good markerting tool to get their other towers booked.

Funds can always be generated by higher taxes on petrol like Bangalore did.
There is lack of Vision or Master plan.
Planning is for next elections and not for future needs.

I dont buy this argument. It's just that Delhi gets more funds from the taxes paid from all over the country. At one level it is understandable that we are spending on the capital city, but it should not be overdone. States get back only about 20% of the taxes they earn, rest goes to Delhi (ofcourse to be spent back to the entire nation). But a little more percentage of money goes in Delhi budget than what they exactly earn.

Legal wrangles delay flyovers

Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/C...ow/2215843.cms

HYDERABAD: A handful of properties, including those of two former judges, literally put a spanner in flyover works in the city, resulting in overshooting deadlines and inconvenience to road-users.

The Punjagutta flyover was caught in legal wrangles, a maze of cables and pipelines. The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), the executing agency, could acquire a property belonging to a showroom only in April, 2007, two months after the ‘official’ deadline.

Similarly, the Greenlands flyover has overshot the deadline by eight months due to a hitch with four properties. The last of these was taken over in April.

Likewise, it took nine months for officials to acquire property of one Habeeb at Chandrayanagutta. Though the flyover works began in September, 2005, acquisition was completed in April this year.

These three flyovers showcase official apathy. As a result, traffic congestion is not an aberration, but the norm in the city.

Though GHMC officials claim land acquisition was the reason for delays, they refuse to admit that they started these projects without acquiring land in the first place.

Of 116 properties identified for acquisition, 38 land owners gave their consent, while the majority settled for the land acquisition mode. Only a handful went to court. For getting a property of former judge B Subhashan Reddy at Somajiguda, the officials had to spend three months to complete all formalities to acquire it.

The branched-out Punjagutta flyover is eight months behind schedule. Changes in the alignment at Chutney’s, acquisition of properties and ever-increasing traffic resulted in delay, claim officials.

“Normally, construction of a pier takes 15 days, but due to underground cables, water and sewer lines, the contractor, Gammon India, could complete one pier in three months,’’ GHMC superintending engineer R Sridhar said. Now, the corporation hopes to open it in November.

The 1.1 km-long Greenlands flyover is behind schedule by nine months. The contractor, JMC Projects, bagged the work in December, 2005 and was to complete it by February, 2007. However, the works were stalled at the Begumpet road over bridge (ROB) when the railways raised doubts on the stability of the bridge. The new flyover would be merged with the existing ROB. As the railways wanted to see the design of the flyover, precious two months was lost. The rail officials agreed to the proposal only after studying a JNTU report on the bridge post merger.

After several impediments, the flyover works are now progressing. It is likely to be opened by November. The trumpet-shaped Nalgonda crossroads flyover got delayed for over eight months due to acquisition delays and traffic diversions. The disabled welfare department took five months to hand over property to GHMC.

The flyover works began in November, 2005, but due to a controversy over the alignment drawings it actually started in January, 2006. It is likely to be over in September.

The smallest flyover (450 metre-long Chandrayanagutta flyover) took nearly two years for completion though the project time was just 10 months. The flyover works started in October, 2005 and should have been ready by September, 2006. Of six properties, one property owner went to court. After the court verdict, the corporation was forced to cough up Rs 7 lakh.

With the flyover almost ready, the authorities plan to inaugurate it by August 15. Apart from the flyovers, two ROBs in the city are also behind schedule.

After nine long years and acquisition delays, the Sithaphalmandi ROB, which started in 1999, is likely to be ready by December.

The Jamai-Osmania ROB, which too began in 1999, is in the final stages of completion. It is likely to be opened by August 15.

With deferring deadlines becoming the norm, harried road-users have no option but to bear the inconvenience with a smile.

There is, no doubt, overwhelming response for the LANCO project.The price at which it was sold went upto Rs4250/- per sq ft.The signature tower is bound to come.The approval of International Aviation Authority,Canada is awaited.I can say optimistically that demand for ten more LANCO Size project is there in Hyderabad.
