I hope that they don't leave that ugly gap between kerb and road and a proper leveling of manhole covers.

This is the new bridge at Lakdi-ka-pul. They had filled up the soil to connect the existing road to the bridge but you can see that they have dug it up again.

The flyover would be unique because it has to accommodate a temple in the middle of the stretch.

The GHMC is planning a flyover at Toli Chowki by 2013 to tackle the traffic snarls on the Mehdi*patnam-Gachibowli stretch.

With an estimated cost of Rs.38.91 crore, the project will start soon as several properties have already been acquired on the more than half a kilometer stretch.

The temple in the middle of the stretch poses another problem. According to the project engineers, as the radius of the temple is 22m, a minimum of 64m width will be required at the junction to circumvent the structure. This will make the flyover a unique structure in the City.

The GHMC has to acquire at least 25 to 30 properties more to start the work, which will be completed in a year or so, depending on the time acquisition would take. “As this also means road widening, we shall be clearing some of the properties along the 300m stretch on east and west sides,” said one of the project engineers.

After Gachibowli transformed into an IT hub in the City, the Mumbai Highway has seen a manifold increase in the number of vehicles. For motorists coming from the east and southern parts of the City, this road is the best route to get to Gachibowli. With increased traffic, the Toli Chowki junction, along with other connecting roads from Hakeempet and Seven Tombs road, have become difficult for the traffic police to control. This made the authorities consider the option of constructing a flyover to ensure a smooth ride for motorists going to and from Gachibowli. The proposed project recently got the nod and has been given priority by the higher authorities.

However, many of the businesses in the area are not aware of the project, which promises to come up in the short span of a year. “I have seen GHMC officials at Galaxy theatre; they were never here,” says a businessman, Ali Mohiuddin, whose shop is situated at the crossroads.

Similar was the response from a businessman from the other side of the road, but he was aware that he would be losing a portion of his building one day. “If it is true, then we will have to lose 20 feet, as was told to us two years ago,” says Aziz of Maharaja sweets.

The businessmen seem conflicted about the road widening issue, as it might bring new business but may displace them.

Another vent at Malakpet rail under bridge to ease traffic congestion

Source: ToI

Quote:
HYDERABAD: To ease traffic congestion on the Malakpet-Dilsukhnagar stretch, which is part of the National Highway-9, a new vent will be provided at the rail under bridge (RUB) in Malakpet. Apart from the vent, road will be expanded on both sides of the RUB. As of now, the road, which is only 50 ft to 60 ft wide, gets choked near the RUB during peak hours. The carriageway beyond the RUB is between 120 ft and 150 ft wide. Since the LB Nagar-Miyapur metro rail corridor (I) would pass through this stretch and a station would also come up near the Malakpet railway station, officials have proposed another vent at the RUB.

The Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) would bear the expenditure on the vent pegged around Rs 10 crore, while the South Central Railway (SCR) might provide the two-way vent for the existing bridge. The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) would expand road on both sides of the bridge. General alignment drawings (GAD) for the vent have been prepared and sent to the Union ministry of road transport and highways for clearance since the stretch falls under their jurisdiction.

As of now, there are two vents (four lanes). If another vent (two lanes) is created, it would become a six-lane stretch. The HMR is planning to start works after getting approvals from NHAI and SCR. The SCR might execute the work with funds provided by HMR or GHMC would take it up under the supervision of HMR and SCR.

The Railways has already taken up expansion of two RUBs near Rail Nilayam and Alugaddabavi a few months ago. GHMC is footing the bill for expansion works of bridges costing about Rs 28 crore and has already released about Rs 23 crore. Once construction of vents at the two RUBs is completed, there would be smooth flow of traffic on the Secunderabad-Tarnaka stretch.

GHMC officials said the RUB at Alugaddabavi bridge might be completed by December, while the one at Rail Nilayam could be ready by March next.

Meanwhile, another nine underpasses have been proposed at various junctions on the NH to facilitate smooth flow of traffic once the metro rail starts functioning. The underpasses have been proposed at JNTU-Kukatpally Y-junction, SR Nagar, Mythrivanam, Khairatabad junction, Moosarambagh, Dilsukhnagar, Chaitanyapuri crossroads and Gaddiannaram. As all these points are on national highways covering a distance of 30km, the permission of the Union ministry of road transport and highways is necessary.

"No decision has been taken whether to go for an underpass or a flyover at some places like Khairatabad junction. However, these will be taken up in a phased manner with funds of HMR," HMR managing director NVS Reddy told TOI.

About Tolichowli it would be better if the temple could be relocated and a signal is placed, as it is a junction. But I guess that is not possible

HYDERABAD: It was six months ago that the South Central Railway sanctioned about Rs 32 crore for constructing a road-under-bridge (RuB) at Safilguda level crossing, much to relief of the residents. Later, the plan was stalled as the authorities were considering widening the existing RuB at Uttam Nagar nearby. Six months later, the plan is still being considered as no work has taken place on the site. The traffic situation has only gotten worse leaving denizens fuming.

Dhan Singh, engineer-in-chief, GHMC said, "The plan was put on hold as improving the existing RuB at Uttam Nagar which is just around 400 metres from Safilguda level crossing seemed like a better option. The proposal is being considered and the funds may be directed to this project after approval." Meanwhile, new developments have given people more reason to worry. Officials from GHMC revealed that the latest development in the plan was to completely close the Safilguda level crossing once the work at Uttam Nagar was done.

The residents believe that closing the level crossing will only add to their traffic woes. Vidya Suresh, who has been staying there for around 30 years said, "Closing the level crossing will only make things worse as the bridge in Uttam Nagar is very low and will create problems for the several heavy vehicles that use this route daily. The traffic snarls caused by the level crossing are only getting worse every year with increased vehicles using the same road. For the last three years, authorities have been promising a bridge there but nothing has been done yet." She added that sometimes two or three trains go by consecutively, bringing the vehicles on the narrow road to a complete halt for around 30 minutes to an hour.

The level crossing in question is on one of the arterial roads in the area used by thousands of heavy vehicles, four wheelers and two wheelers to go from Safilguda, Anandbagh, Neredmet and other surrounding areas to Secunderabad and back daily. The narrow road only accommodates around three lanes of traffic and is also elevated just before the crossing, increasing the risk of accidents. Commuters added that the recent attempt by the traffic police to decrease the congestion there by placing temporary dividers had only resulted in chaos during the rush hour.

Residents of the area near the Uttam Nagar RuB too are unhappy with this development. "Ours is a residential area. The roads are narrow and there are not many speed breakers. If the entire traffic is diverted from here then it will definitely cause many accidents and endanger our children's lives who frequently play on the streets," said Vijay Raj, a resident.

I don't there is any plan to build an intermediate ring road covering all the areas of the city. That intermediate ring road is more like a link road connecting NH9 and NH7. It seems to be 4 laned till Bachupally.

So, these are the new direction boards that are going to be installed (hopefully) all over the city.
The board looks good with decent sized fonts but I wish they included urdu too to go with the heritage of the city.

Nice find!

Considering Urdu is also an official language of Hyd, it should be included. Nevertheless, signboard serves its purpose.

HYDERABAD: A portion of the road caved in opposite the Jalagam Vengala Rao Park on Road No.1, Banjara Hills, on Friday morning. The road portion collapsed to a depth of about a metre reportedly due to poor consolidation of earth after the laying of some pipelines .

Some months ago, a part of the road had caved in near Model House in Punjagutta and later at Mythrivanam. It had taken authorities three days to restore the road at Punjagutta when it had caved in.

Civic officials said that the road collapsed at about 7am and did not cause any injuries. Traffic police, who had noticed the crack, alerted Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials.

Engineers with GHMC said that the exact cause of the collapse was yet to be ascertained although they pointed at the two water pipelines which were laid beneath the road by Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB). "When the pipelines were laid, there was no proper consolidation and that could have led to the problem," said GHMC superintending engineer, Dileep Kumar.

The civic body has started restoration of the road and the work might be completed by Saturday morning.

Urdu is not required in these areas but only in Old City areas. The AP Tourism boards by GHMC that are used in Old City already have all 4 languages

Work in progress at the new flyover bridge near the Hitech City Railway Station, in Hyderabad on Monday, On its completion it will ease the traffic on the Madhapur and Kukatpally Road.


Quote:
Will offer connectivity between JNTU junction and Hi-Tec City on the spinal road

The government has accorded a revised sanction of Rs.68.68 crore for the ongoing Road over Bridge (RoB) at Hi-Tec City railway station, while preparations are afoot to launch massive girders over the railway tracks to complete the project.

The facility, which was conceived with a budget of around Rs.24 crore, kept escalating with delays for the last six years and now the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) hopes to complete it by mid-December.

The RoB that offers connectivity between JNTU junction and Hi-Tec City on the spinal road had work completed on either side with only the central part flying over the railway tracks getting mired in delays due to changes in the design.

Hectic work has been on for the last three months at the yard close to the MMTS station to ready the massive girders.

A total of 32 girders measuring 30 metres for the portion over the tracks and another 16 girders of 35 metres for either side of the tracks have been prepared.

“In about 100 days, we have completed 48 girders and the quantum of welding works done has been massive,” says an official.

Weather permitting, launching of these girders to complete the structure is scheduled in the next 10 days. Once the task is through by the month-end, top concrete and other related works are expected to be completed in December.

The facility has been designed as 910 metres long and 21.5 m wide with a four-lane divided carriageway. The initial budget was revised to Rs.48 crore last year and now hiked to Rs.68.68 crore, for which the government provided sanction last week.

After a series of meetings between the HMDA and the railways, the revised design that got approved looks at avoiding skew in the railway portion and also a continuous span in super structure design.

Apart from segmenting of the deck slab suitably for easy maintenance by railways, it has also been decided to adopt steel grade as per the Railways’ Research Design and Standards Organisation (RDSO) standards.

Looks like this is an old pic. You can only see 2 of the Lodha towers.
