Lakdi ka pul bridge to be thrown open in 3 months

... After the court ruled in its favour, the GHMC has deposited compensation amount to the tune of Rs 1.9 crore for Lucky Hotel, Rs 2.9 crore for another hotel, which were directly falling in the line of road widening. After completion of the required formalities, the civic authorities have taken up the demolition process. Once it is done, the construction of approach roads would start.

Good this happening in Hyd - again!
Dasara present for HYd commuters, - especially for those passing Lakdi-ka-pul junction!

Happy Dasara !

Land issue resolved on key link road
Road users can hope for a hassle-free drive on the ever-busy Greenlands and Ameerpet stretches with the GHMC resolving the “contentious” land acquisition issue for opening the much-awaited Begumpet-Fatehnagar link road within three months.

Occupants of thirty-four houses at Indiragandhipuram have given their consent to vacate their premises after houses were allotted to them at Yellammabanda. A special compensation was also given to them.

WORK FROM MONDAY: “Occupants requested us to give time till completion of exams of their children. As exams were already completed, we will take up the demolition work from Monday for laying the road,” said GHMC Additional Commissioner (Planning and Projects) K. Dhananjaya Reddy.

Five more properties that were creating hurdles for laying the road connecting newly constructed Road-under-Bridge (RuB) near Balkampet were also acquired.

... Officials said once this link road comes into operation, the distance between Begumpet, Ameerpet and Fatehnagar can be reduced by at least 2.5 km. While one lane of the two-km long link road begins from behind Sri Hanuman temple in Begumpet, another starts at Katta Maisamma temple next to Hyderabad Public School (HPS) and connects Balkampet and Fatehnagar flyover.

Motorists from Secunderabad proceeding towards Fatehnagar can use the lane abutting Varun Motors at the beginning of Greenlands flyover, go underneath the flyover to reach the newly constructed road-under-bridge connecting the link road behind Sri Hanuman temple.

In the opposite direction, commuters going towards Secunderabad from Balkampet and the Sanatnagar side can directly use the link road connecting HPS road adjacent to the Katta Maisamma temple.

Path cleared for Balkampet-Begumpet link road

All 39 buildings coming in the way of completing the Begumpet-Fatehnagar-Balkampet road have been demolished by the GHMC here on Monday.

The work that has been held up for the last three years was taken up following successful conduct of negotiations with the property owners, Commissioner M.T. Krishna Babu informed in a press release.

The property owners have been paid structural compensation and have been allotted alternate accommodation at the newly-built housing colony at Yellammmabada constructed under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), he pointed out. The compensation amounts have also been adjusted with the beneficiary contribution for the new housing units.

With this, the path has been cleared to lay the 60 ft road in the next couple of months. Once completed, it would provide commuters a short-cut for those intending to travel towards Balkampet-Fatehnagar from Begumpet by 2.5 km, he added.

HYDERABAD: A three-member technical committee on Saturday gave the green signal for completing the ongoing underground sewerage tunneling work near the Basheerbagh flyover. However, the executing agency has to complete laying pipeline by July 20 and clear the site by July 30.

Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials had raised concerns over the safety of the flyover as tunneling work was happening close to the piers (pillars) of the Basheerbagh flyover.

On Saturday, the three-member technical committee, constituted at the behest of principal secretary, municipal administration & urban development (MA&UD) and comprising officials from Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB), Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), made a joint inspection of the site where 1, 800mm dia trunk sewer with trenchless technology was being laid.

The Committee concluded that the balance length of 12 Metre near the ramp portion of the flyover could be completed with due precautions for removal of boring machine from the receiving pit and demobilise the machinery and equipment away from the site.

The GHMC official advised that since work was completed along the flyover stretch, machinery and equipment put up on the main road junction be shifted from the site to ease traffic flow at the Basheerbagh flyover junction and convert the open drive pit into a closed inspection manhole.

After visiting the site, HMWS&SB managing director Adhar Sinha submitted the inspection report of the technical committee to the MA&UD principal secretary Sam Bob.

Lack of coordination between GHMC & R&B to the fore

Source: The Hindu
Quote:
Few citizens are aware that the R&B owns road length to an extent of 180 km, including the heavy traffic areas touching Begumpet, Secunderabad, Mehidpatnam, Tarnaka, Uppal, Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, etc.

Within a few days of announcing that the roads would be spruced up for the bio-diversity summit, the GHMC thought it fit to cut a busy road on Banjara Hills road number three into half sending the traffic into a tizzy on Monday.

That the road cutting was for laying a stormwater pipeline to deal with inundation is a small consolation, considering that the work was done during the day. Incidentally, the road belongs to the Roads & Buildings Department and permission was taken for the work.

Perfect mismatch
Usually, such ‘perfect understanding’ is missing between the departments since they have been fighting to claim ownership to the State capital’s roads even as commuters bear the brunt. While the municipal corporation with over 7,000 km of different kinds of roads to maintain has not exactly covered itself with glory in ensuring a smooth ride, it does carpeting annually, even if unevenly.

Little wonder that GHMC Commissioner M.T. Krishna Babu has set aside as much as Rs.89 crore for road profile corrections. But the R&B has nothing to show, save for uniform bad stretches with life threatening obstacles in the form of remnants of old dividers, shoddy patch work on dug up roads (Begumpet for example), and so on.

Few citizens are aware that the R&B owns road length to an extent of 180 km, including the heavy traffic areas touching Begumpet, Secunderabad, Mehidpatnam, Tarnaka, Uppal, Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, etc.

Little to showcase
It has about six executive engineers stationed here yet has little to show for work because of little or no sanctions for city roads. “We have even offered to take them under deputation forming a separate wing as we had done for irrigation to ensure the department roads too get a facelift but there are no takers due to union issues,” said municipal officials.

For the last five years, GHMC has been imploring R&B officials to hand over the roads along with Rs.22 crore for maintaining the latter’s roads and several meetings were held between the top bosses. A decision to the effect was also taken at a meeting convened by Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy last year which never got implemented, they point out.

In fact, a sore note between both is a pending payment to the civic body for doing up the inner ring road when the international airport at Shamshabad was opened and repairs during VVIP visits. “It is better to have a single road authority for the twin cities for better coordination,” they affirmed.

Interestingly, even though Principal Secretary (R&B) S.P. Singh, had been a GHMC Commissioner and Special Officer, and quite conscious of the problem, an effective solution remains elusive.



Clarification by R&B official


Quote:
In response to the story ‘Lack of coordination between GHMC & R&B to the fore’ published on page two of the city edition on July 9 (Monday), the R&B Superintending Engineer (Rural circle) V. Chinna Reddy writes:
"There is no lack of coordination between R&B department and GHMC…both organisations are going hand in hand as far as construction and maintenance of roads within GHMC limits. It (R&B) has adequate funds, manpower and technical know-how to tackle any kind of exigency and stands second to none. The department has been putting vigorous efforts to maintain its roads in best possible condition from the grants from time to time without any laxity.”

Funds allotted
“The government has already allotted Rs.10.50 crore for recarpeting roads and considering to release further amounts to the department. There are no six executive engineers within GHMC limits but only one EE for maintaining the roads in good condition…”

Our Special Correspondent replies: The R&B Superintending Engineer has been silent about the main issue of the story, i.e. why the condition of the roads being maintained by the R&B department is bad and putting commuters in danger.

No answers
He also has nothing say about the repeated requests from the GHMC to hand over the city roads along with the annual budget of Rs.22 crore or about the decision taken at the Chief Minister’s level to do so or about the pending bills of the civic body.

I not very familiar with that area but even this ROB is very close to ORR. So people can use the ORR's service roads to move. Although there should be more connections between the two sides of the railway line between Cherlapally and ORR. Is this road a proposed Radial Road?

Does anyone still have the Proposed Master Plan of HMDA that they released last year? I seem to have lost it and I cant find it online again. It was a pdf file.

Well it is very close to ORR, Pocharam, Ghatkesar, Keesara etc., The road is largely empty on both sides and is bound to see development in real estate etc., once Pocharam develops as IT area. The radial roads close to this areas to be done are ECIL-Keesara (which is 4-lane only till Kushaiguda from ecil), Chengicherla-Mallapur IDA, Mallapur bridge-Cherlapalli. The service road of ORR is useful only for Keesara bogaram etc (which are already connected to the warangal hghway) which are not much populated compared to ECIL, A S rao ngr, K'guda, Cherlapalli etc., who use this Rampally road to get to Ghatkesar or Warangal hghwy. Currently yes the 2 lane ROB is sufficient but in future

Single agency entrusted with the task to complete the work within couple of months

Seventeen road corridors in the twin cities are in for a major facelift in terms of bold new signages of various hues giving an international look thanks to the forthcoming 11 meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP) to the Convention on Biological Diversity meet from October 8 to 19 later this year.

Buoyed by the Rs.125 crore financial grant released by the government last week, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) set the signages work rolling at a cost of little over Rs. 9 crore. Engineering-in-Chief R. Dhan Singh said on Monday that the works across the identified road corridors including those belonging to the Roads & Buildings Department have been divided into three packages.

Tenders were called for a few days ago and a single agency had been entrusted with the task to complete the work within the next couple of months come rain or shine. Signages to be taken up were cautionary boards, regulatory and informatory boards indicating sharp curves, speed limits to be followed, markings, zebra crossings and the likes.

Road corridors

The road corridors chosen were: Hyderabad Interntaional Convention Centre Madhapur to NFCL junction, NFCL junction to S.D. Eye Hospital (Mehdipatnam), Road Nos.1 & 12 Banjara Hills to Jubilee Hills check post, Telugu Talli junction to CTO via Tank Bund, M.G. Road, Road No.45 Jubilee Hills, R.P. Road to NTR statue on S.P. Road via Ministers Road.

Second package

Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital to Outer Ring Road junction (Gachibowli), NFCL junction to Sangeet junction via S.P. Road, Somajiguda Rajiv Gandhi statue to Ravindra Bharati via Raj Bhavan, NTR Marg, Secretariat, Gachibowli to Kothaguda, Golconda fort to Tolichowki via Tombs.

Third package

Madina to Chaderghat via Salarjung Museum, Ambedkar statue to Chanderghat bridge via Abids & Koti, M.G. Road to Hari Hara Kala Bhavan via Bata showroom, Charminar to Chandrayanagutta via Lal Darwaza, Falaknuma, Road no.10 Banjara Hills to KBR Park entrance and M.G. Road to Necklace Road Indira Gandhi statue.

I just checked out Hyderabad Growth Corridor Map.

There are 2 radial roads between Cherial/Keesara and Warangal Highway Interchanges-Radial roads 17 and 18

I cant seem to find these roads on Google Maps and building these roads also seems impossible.

This is the draft masterplan of HMDA that they released last year. I took a screenshot of the Pocharam area.

The Black lines around ORR are the roads present/proposed in the growth corridor.

According to the articles RR 15 will be Radhika Junc. (a s rao ngr) -Yadgarpalli, RR 16 ECIL-Keesara, RR 17 will be Mallapur bridge to Cherlapalli IDA, RR 18 is Ncaharam IDA-Mallapur-Chengicherla and RR 19 will be Uppal to Narapally via Warangal hghwy. The alignment is pretty clear on these except RR 15 as there is currently no proper road after Dammaiguda junction. I'll mark these on G maps for better understanding

in the 2nd map the 2-lane flyover is on the green line where Yamnampet is written

Those radial roads need to be made signal-free with flyovers or underpasses built as required. Like in Bangalore.

Sure, but looking at the G Maps image, I'm not sure how RR 18 is going to be built.

Well when the time comes they will be built guess. But Trams on the RR roads would be cool and when even trams aren't sufficient we could look for Monorail/Metro rail.

Before doing so with Hyderabad's non-NH radial roads, they should, IMO, convert all NHs running from the IRR to ORR to expressways (signal-free, grade-separated, no u-turns, no driveways except to service/frontage roads, no parking except on frontage/service roads). The same goes for the IRR as well, which will probably require upgrades to the PVNR (like a more complex interchange complex at Aramgarh Jn, ramp improvements, and an extension to an interchange complex at Masab Tank), massive construction along the less-crowded sections (to make frontage roads and useful shoulders on the main carriageways), and additional elevated sections (such as in Begumpet, running parallel to the upcoming metro line and integrating with existing flyovers).
