New flyovers
Road-users plying on the worst-congestion corridor in the city — Kukatpally to Dilsukhnagar — can breathe easy. Two flyovers are likely to come up on this most traffic-dense corridor next year. Apart from the four new flyovers to be built this year, Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) plans to add two more: Dilsukhnagar-LB Nagar flyover and Uppal village-Ramanthapur flyover. According to a study done by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, the Kukatpally-Dilsukhnagar corridor carries a staggering 40,000-50,000 passengers per hour in each direction during peak hours. The average demand on this corridor is about 3,07,000 passengers per day. Huda officials said Uppal also needs a flyover as the city has extended up to the Singapore township. If the township is completed and house allottees move in, traffic on that stretch will increase manifold. Huda is likely to appoint an agency to conduct a demand survey for the two flyovers.

RoBs' deadline
Much delayed road overbridges (RoBs) at Sitaphalmandi and at Adikmet are to finally see the light of the day. The Additional Commissioner, who visited these sites on Wednesday, said notices would be issued to property owners on either side of RoBs.

Since alignments have been fixed properly, work will be speeded up.
He expects to get them ready for opening in June.

----------------------------------------------------
hopefully, they will be completed at least by DEC 2006.

Disputes come in the way of overbridge construction
(stale news from Aug 2005)

Work at Jamia Osmania started seven years ago

May not be ready till early 2006
Cites land disputes as a reason for delay
Residents are a harried lot here



AT SNAIL'S PACE: Work in progress on a flyover at Jamia Osmania Railway Station in Hyderabad Photo: Satish H.

HYDERABAD: If newcomers to the city have never heard of an alternative road to Osmania University or Tarnaka through Adikmet, they are not to be blamed. Even those familiar with all roads in the capital have long forgotten about it, thanks to the long delay in completing the road overbridge at Jamia Osmania.

Though construction work on the ROB was revived recently after a change in contractor, it may not be ready for traffic until early next year.

Construction on the ROB was mooted to reduce traffic on the University road and because it was linked to the Uppal highway. Work began seven years ago but was abandoned two years later as disputes arose between the contractor and Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad.

Contractor's demand
The budgeted amount to start with was Rs.6 crores. The contractor sought revised prices because of escalation in steel and cement prices after work was started...

... Some locals put their foot down when the demand for widening service roads was made. With no private properties on the OU side, the bridge was completed on that side till the tracks.

'All sorted out'
"There was a dispute over alignment of the ROB by residents on either side and whose properties would be affected. There were obstacles in the form of a graveyard and a religious structure.

But we sorted them out," explains B. Jayarami Reddy, Vidyanagar corporator.
All this delayed the project. However, MCH officials insist that the work will be completed on schedule this time.

Even the Moula Ali fly over took a lot of time to be completed.

A release from HUDA said here that the chairman D Sudheer Reddy held discussions with the additional commissioner municipal corporation of Hyderabad N V S Reddy and other officials about the plan.

The flyover would have two separate viaducts on either side of Metro guideway structure and the approximate length of the flyover would be two kms.

The flyover would likely to be launched on October two to mark HUDA's 31st anniversary, the release added.
One more on the pipe line.
On the whole, it looks like GoAP/HUDA is trying to do their best.
Most of the delays appear to be related to land aquisition and cost escalation
The people, community leaders and contractors should also do their part to complete these projects in time.

No takers for separate Telangana at grassroots level

Rajasekhara Reddy cashing in on panchayat poll verdict to take the wind out of Telangana Rashtra Samitis sail

KVVV Charya

Hyderabad The recently concluded panchayat election results in Andhra Pradesh have sent out clear signals that there are no takers for the much debated Telangana statehood at the grassroot level.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP), which campaigned for a united Andhra Pradesh, won decisively in eight out of 10 districts in the Telangana region, while the Bharatiya Janata Party, which promised Telangana statehood, stood marginalised and managed to win only a few seats.

BJPs national leaders, Rajnath Singh and LK Advani, have been vocal about offering separate statehood to Telangana if people voted for them.

However, some political leaders feel that Telangana cannot be treated as an issue in the local body elections. Local body polls always reflect the issues at villages, local political formations and various issues relating to the district, they say. But this has not prevented the AP chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, also a defender of a united state, from reading the verdict as a clear message against bifurcating the state. Reddy has already begun using the verdict to neutralise threats from Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) leaders, like K Chandrasehar Rao and A Narendra.

Meanwhile, TRS could win only five Zilla Panchayat Territorial Constituencies (ZPTC) in Medak district, which is represented by Union minister Narendra in Parliament. Even in Karimnagar district, from where Chandrasekhar Rao won elections, the TDP won 22 ZPTCs, while the TRS won just four.

Interestingly, the Telangana voters from Ranga Reddy district, where major industrialisation is taking place, have voted for TDP. It is said the people are vexed with the way the Congress government is going about acquiring land in the district. For instance, to provide 5,000 acre to the GMR group for the international airport, people from about 12 villages will have to be relocated. Alos, people are worried that the government would acquire another 25,000 acre for Reliance Industries, which has evinced interest in setting up a chemical complex.

i hate the fact that TDP is now going anti-development. but clearly, i think even Telangana ppl are not impressed by the seperate state talk. a major blow for TRS and even BJP. this issue will slowly come to rest in the next couple of months.

It provides one of the best facilities for the cricketers and best rest rooms in the world.
The first match held in this stadium was between South Africa and India.

The way it appears in the picture, they could easily expand capacity to 75,000-80,000 by aquiring some land on at least two sides and building some rows of seats.

That would make it clearly the second largest in the country (next to Kolkata's 1,00,000 capacity.

City may house National Cricket Academy

NCA might be set up at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal
HCA to temporarily put on hold its ambitious Club House project
Sharad Pawar enhances infrastructure grant from Rs. 4-crore to Rs. 10-crore


HYDERABAD: If everything goes according to plan, the Hyderabad Cricket Association might well realise the dream of housing the National Cricket Academy (NCA) as hectic efforts are on to shift it from Bangalore.
The NCA might be set up at the new Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal.

The Hyderabad Cricket Association has been asked to build an indoor cricket facility and also improve player facilities for the shift to happen, said its secretary and NCA Director N. Shivlal Yadav. Mr. Yadav said that this was the reason for the HCA to put on hold its ambitious Club House project albeit temporarily.

"NCA is the topmost priority for us as it will directly benefit cricketers. The Club House will be taken care of at a later stage," he said...

"We are hoping that our efforts will bear fruit as we want to showcase our stadium for hosting big international matches," averred Mr. Yadav

I hope they would plan ahead and aquire some more land.
They should also pursue the club house, which would make the stadium more resourceful.
May be they should invite private funding if necessary.

New Hyd Cricket Stadium is suppose to be a 75,000 seater. But in the pictures, Tier No. 3 is missing & probably still u/c & will stay like that for years depending how much money HCA has. From the images, it is clearly 2 tiers so far, renderings suggest 3-tier stadium when fully completed.

Thanks Hindustani.
Thats definitely a VERY GOOD news.
as of date, The Hindu article says 50,000 and Wikipedia says 55,000 capacity.
When the Tier No. 3 is completed, 75, 000 capacity would still make it the second largest in the country!

I dont think that the current capacity is close to 50,000. My understanding is that the eventual capacity when the stadium is completed (including the 3rd tier) will be covered seating for around 55,000.

Hope Hyd is awarded some matches in the near future so that HCA can raise the money it requires to complete construction.

little request to the mods on my part. can you guys change the title of this thread to Hyderabad/AP discussions.

http://www.hindu.com/2006/07/21/stor...2113250400.htm





_________________________________________________________________



an interesting trend: in most of the Telangana districts, TDP has increased it's vote share considerably in the recent Panchayat polls, since the '04 assembly elections. and congress' vote % has gone down considerably.

YSR is prolly lookin' at these results and wondering why this is happening. also, the TDP is trailing Congress only by a few percentage points in a number of districts. this tight competition will keep both parties runing on all engines. but there is always a danger of populist agendas when there is such close competition. and with CBN going to any length to regain power, this is not a welcome situation.
