With the government expressing keen interest in pushing ahead key infrastructure projects to enhance the city’s image as a preferred investment destination, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) plans to come up with a Regional Ring Road (RRR) is expected to get an impetus.

Despite delays, the HMDA’s earlier project on 158 km long eight-lane Outer Ring Road (ORR) encircling the city beyond the peripheries has reached the final lap and as part of the Master Plan, the planning body last year had come out with the Regional Ring Road proposal.

The RRR concept has been drawn up as 290 km long road network that rounds up the new and emerging destinations beyond the ORR and while linking districts that were made part of extended jurisdiction of HMDA, also sets up connectivity with the national highways.

Envisaging Hyderabad as primary nucleus, the Master Plan had identified several sub-nuclei centres to act as urban nodes and urban centres in the expanded jurisdiction that include districts of Medak, Nalgonda, Mahbubnagar and Ranga Reddy, and the proposed road network had been designed to interlink them.

Initially, the RRR was proposed with 60 metre width, but following the suggestion of the then Chief Minister, N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, it was revised as 90 metre width. The alignment has been worked out as passing through several existing settlements such as Toopran, Sangareddy, Eddumailaram, Chevella, Narsapur, Shabad, Shadnagar, Daudguda, Ibrahimpatnam, Bibinagar, Malkapuram and Gundelaguda.

Of the 290 km RRR, according to HMDA officials, an alignment of approximately 210 km length would be on existing roads and the rest would be newly created alignment. “We intend shaping the connectivity by strengthening the existing roads along the alignments and adding new stretches wherever linkages are found missing,” an official said.

At a recent interaction with industry representatives organised by Round Table India, IT Minister K. T. Rama Rao made a mention of the project, while saying the new government was not going to be content with the ORR. “We want to expand the existing infrastructure in and around Hyderabad and are looking at the RRR that will come up in a radius of 60 km to 65 km from the city,” he said.

HMDA Commissioner Neerabh Kumar Prasad said the work on preparing a design for the RRR was on and details of the land survey numbers through which the project criss-cross were identified. “Consultants have been appointed for the project and we will come up with a detailed project report soon so that required funding could be raised,” he said.

Shouldnt this thread be in Telangana sub-forum?
Shouldnt this thread be in Telangana sub-forum?
I placed it here because ORR and Radial Road are here.
^^ :cheers: How much will be the distance b/w concentric ORR and RRR? I think HMDA's first priority should be complete missing link of ORR which has been severely delayed

Report on proposed RRR soon

The focus on key infrastructure development around the city is expected to receive an impetus next month with the submission of a pre-feasibility report on the proposed 290 km long Regional Ring Road (RRR).

The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Plan (MDP) has proposed the RRR as a network to connect the new and emerging spots beyond the Outer Ring Road and to act as a linkage for districts surrounding the city and with the highways.

The MDP while considering the needs and developments till the year 2031 has envisaged Hyderabad as primary nucleus and the emerging areas of adjoining districts of Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar, Nalgonda and Medak, as urban nodes and urban centres. The 90 metre wide road to connect these nodes and centres was mooted by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) and the task of coming up with a pre-feasibility report assigned to a consultant, Aarvee Associates.

The senior officials of HMDA from different wings, including the ORR project took stock of the progress made on the report this week.

“A preliminary feasibility report is to be generated by the consultants by June-end based on which further steps are to be initiated,” said an official.

The RRR alignment has been planned to run through Toopran, Narsapur, Sangareddy, Eddumailaram, Chevella, Shahbad, Shadnagar, Daudguda, Gundelaguda, Ibrahimnagar, Malkapuram and Bibinagar.

The HMDA proposal looks at the RRR initially as an open facility, but which could be a partially or fully access controlled one at a later stage based on the traffic growth and development of the influence areas.

It will also enumerate the number of intersections needed.

The 158-km Jawaharlal Nehru Outer Ring Road (ORR), that circles the city, will soon have a companion: A 290km Regional Ring Road (RRR)If the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority''s (HMDA) plans are anything to go by , work on the project is expected to start soon.

When contacted, HMDA officials said a consultant engaged by the authority recently prepared a preliminary feasibility study for the RRR which would be sent to the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) for administrative sanction.
The RRR is expected to have a 90-metre `right of way'' (six lanes) and will pass through areas such as Toopran, Shivampet, Narsapur, Ismailkhanpet, Chevella, Shabad, Shadnagar, Kothur, Gudur, Malkapur, Kothiyal, Mulugu and another 125 villages.

The proposed ring road will subsume 210 km of existing road and land acquisition is required to widen these stretches.The rest of the 80 km will be new. “The feasibility (report) of the RRR has already been prepared. The estimated cost for the new ring road is between Rs 7,000 crore and Rs 8,000 crore including the cost of land acquisition.

According to the Times of India, the financial model for the project is being worked out by the government. Initially , the authority wants to take up one stretch on a pilot basis,“ HMDA metropolitan commissioner T Chiranjeevulu

The urban authority had earlier used different financial models for different stretches of the ORR. While the Phase I of ORR from Gachibowli to Shamshabad was taken up with its own funds, other stretches like Pedda Amberpet to Shamshabad, Narsingi to Patancheru, Patancheru to Shamirpet, Shamirpet to Ghatkesar and Ghatkesar to Pedda Amberpet were taken up under the annuity model and with financial assistance from Japan International Cooperation Agency . Recently, the HMDA completed the last stretch from Shamirpet to Ghatkesar, which is to be opened for general public soon.

The HMDA had proposed the RRR under the Metropolitan Development Plan (MDP)-2031 for the 7,200-sq km Hyderabad Metropolitan Region a couple of years ago. The RRR was proposed to improve connectivity to urban nodes and urban centres beyond the existing ORR. It was also expected to connect ORR and centres such as IT special economic zones and upcoming projects like Pharma City at Mucherla.

Officials claimed that proper care had been taken while preparing the feasibility report and a decision was taken not to disturb the natural environment, human habitation and heritage sites. It was also decided to complete the project with minimum land acquisition by identifying alternative routes to avoid major acquisition.

Another ring road around the current underutilized ring road? I smell a rat at such nonsense.
R&B department suggests realignment of Hyderabad’s Regional Ring Road

Hyderabad: The Telangana roads & buildings (R&B) department has added modifications to the proposed Regional Ring Road (RRR) meant for providing connectivity to urban nodes and urban centres of Hyderabad.

The modification of alignment suggested by the R&B department is from Tupran to Choutuppal to Yacharam to Kadial to Shadnagar as against Tupran, Malkapur, Agahpally and Kottur.

The TS government has decided to construct RRR under the Metropolitan Development Plan (MDP) and the total length of RRR is about 283.53 km. The distance from Outer Ring Road (ORR) to RRR varies from 10 km to 30 km.

A pre-feasibility study has been carried out for the proposed RRR to assess the preliminary feasibility of the RRR and also to assess broad socio-economic and financial analysis of the project. In the proposed RRR, paved and unpaved roads constitute about 58 per cent and the new alignment / bypass is about 42 per cent. The RRR passes through 125 villages, all along the alignment, such as Tup-ran, Shivampet, Narsap-ur, Koulampet, Chevella, Shabad, and Shadnagar.

There are about 25 spinal roads connecting ORR to RRR. These include 10 National and state highway roads and the remainder are new spinal roads. These will provide connectivity from ORR to RRR.

HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao wants the development of the 338-km Regional Ring Road (RRR) beyond the Outer Ring Road to be given top priority. Officials of the Roads and Buildings have been told to start the works on two prestigious projects. Apart from the RRR, the second on the priority list of the CM is the 396-km long Sarapaka-Eturunagaram-Kaleswaram-Kauthala-Sirpur road that runs through the interiors of state.

Both these road projects are to receive funding from the Union Road Transport Ministry. According to sources, roads and buildings minister Tummala Nageswara Rao has instructed officials at a review meeting that of the total 2,700 odd km of the NHs sanctioned by the Centre to Telangana, these are the two projects that would be taken up on priority in the 2017-18 fiscal.

Officials said the CM is of the firm view that while works at the ground level on the RRR should commence in the ensuing fiscal, conversion of the Sarapaka-Sirupur stretch into NH will kick up economic development in the interior areas of the state. Interestingly , RRR passes through Gajwel, the Assembly constituency being represented by KCR.

The state government is seeking at least `5,000 crore in the 2017-18 fiscal from the Centre to start works on these two prestigious projects. The Sarapaka-Sirpur stretch is also eligible for central funding as part of the improvement of road connectivity in Left Wing extremism-affected areas.

The RRR project is expected to cost up to `8,000 crore, and officials have decided to break this project into two bits for speedy funding as well as faster completion of works.The first bit will extend from Sangareddy-Narsapur-Toopran-Gajwel-JagdevpurBhongir-Choutuppal (152.05) km, and the second stretch runs between ChoutuppalIbrahimpatnam-AmangalShadnagar-Chvella-Shankarpalli and Kandi (186-km).

When contacted, Roads and Buildings engineer-inchief I Ganapathi Reddy confirmed to TOI that these two road projects would be taken up on priority in the ensuing financial year.

Land acquisition major hurdle for Regional Ring Road project
TNN | Feb 17, 2017, 06.55 AM IST

HYDERABAD: Land acquisition is proving to be a major hurdle in the development of the 300-km Regional Ring Road (RRR). The chief minister's pet project will connect several urban centres outside the Outer Ring Road, including Chandrasekhar Rao's assembly constituency Gajwel, with the capital city.

As per the preliminary feasibility study, at least 1,800 acres has to be acquired for a 200-feet wide RRR. If the width of the road has to be 300 feet, the land required will go up to 3,000 acres. A majority of this is privately owned.

The chief minister had asked officials to speed up the preparation of the detailed project report (DPR) to be submitted to the Union roads transport and highways ministry seeking funds for the project. The central government has agreed to provide the funds, provided the state government manages to pool the land required.

Also, the funding will not come in a single tranche. It will be provided in instalments based on the utilisation certificate submitted by the state government on the use of the funds. The funding process is likely to take over two years and the Telangana government is now seeking money needed in this interim period.

Roads and buildings engineer-in-chief, I Ganapathi Reddy, said the project would need between Rs 6,000 crore and Rs 8,000 crore, depending on whether the width of the road is to be 200 feet or 300 feet. The existing road is less than 40 feet wide in several stretches. Moreover, there is no link from one stretch to another at many places.

The chief minister has given two years as the deadline for the project. The official expressed confidence on finishing the work within two years of the commencement of work on the ground. "We are going to submit a detailed plan along with financial estimates to the Union ministry at the earliest," he said.

Centre gives nod for Regional Ring Road in Hyderabad: Tummala
By Express News Service | Published: 21st January 2017 03:56 AM |
Last Updated: 21st January 2017 07:19 AM | A+A A- |

HYDERABAD: The government gave its consent for the construction of Regional Ring Road for a stretch of 338 km.

Reviewing the progress of construction of various roads in the state on Friday, Roads and Buildings minister Tummala Nageswara Rao said, “City has been expanding at a rapid speed. The present outer ring road will not be adequate enough for the city. We have sent a proposal to the Centre for the construction of another ring road. The Centre responded positively and agreed for the construction of 338-km long regional ring road around Hyderabad,” he said.

The construction of regional ring road will be a prestigious project for the Roads and Buildings department, the minister said.

Nageswara Rao said that the Centre recently has given its nod for 2,132 km long national highway in the state. The detailed project reports for all these roads will be prepared soon, he said.

He said that the outer ring roads will be constructed connecting Suryapet-Khammam-Kodad, Warnagal-Hyderabad, Suryapet-Mothe-Nayakangudem-Kusumanchi roads. These bypass roads will ensure road safety for the passengers, Nageswara Rao said.

On the slow progress of construction of some roads in the state, Rao expressed ire over the officials and directed them to take stern action against contracting agencies and consultants for the delay. He also reviewed the progress of the construction of national highways taken up with the help of Central government’s funds of Rs 2,690 crore.

The State so far received Rs 1,020 crore under Central Road Fund (CRF). Tenders for CRF works will be called for soon, the officials informed the minister.

Regional Ring Road project takes off, vehicle travel time to reduce
HYDERABAD: Vehicular traffic in the Hyderabad metropolitan region will soon have a hassle-free movement. This is because the Roads and Buildings (R&B) department has begun laying the ambitious Regional Ring Road (RRR) from Sangareddy to Kandi. This is in addition to the existing 158-km Outer Ring Road.

The 70-km of the total 346 km stretch is being developed into a four-lane road by the state government while the remaining length is slated to be taken up with financial assistance from the Union ministry of road transport as most of the RRR falls under the national highways.

Officials said once the RRR is completed, those travelling from Pune to Vijayawada can take RRR at Sangareddy and directly reach Choutuppal. R&B department officials said for the convenience of preparation of detailed project report (DPR), fixing alignment of the road, land acquisition and also execution, the 346 km has been divided into northern and southern parts. While the northern part covers 163 km road and passes from Sangareddy to Choutuppaly via Toopran, Gajwel, Janagaon, Bhongir and Choutuppaly, the 183-km southern corridor from Choutuppal, Ibrahimpatnam, Kadthal, Shadnagar, Chevella, Kandi ends at Sangareddy. "DPR for the northern corridor has already been prepared and the state government is in the process of appointing a consultant for the southern corridor. Simultaneously, works on Sangareddy will continue," roads and buildings (R&B) department engineerin-chief I Ganapathy Reddy told TOI.

Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who spoke to Union minister for transport Nitin Gadkari on Monday on various flyover projects in the city, also requested the latter to sanction financial assistance for the northern corridor for which the detailed project report has already been sent to the Centre. Interestingly, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), a couple of years ago, had proposed the Regional Ring Road for about 290 kms to improve the connectivity to Outer Ring Road and ease traffic congestion on the city roads. It was proposed in the Hyderabad metropolitan regional master plan for a width of 200 ft.

The RRR is proposed with a 90-metre Right of Way (six lanes) from areas such as Toopran, Narsapur, Sanga Reddy, Eddumailaram, Chevella, Shabad, Shadnagar, Daudguda, Gundelaguda, Ibrahimnagar, Malkapuram and Bibinagar. But chief minister Chandrasekhar Rao last year asked the R&B department to take over the project as most of the road stretch either falls under the national or state hi

HYDERABAD: With Union Minister for Road Transport and National Highways, Nitin Gadkari, giving green signal to the Hyderabad Regional Ring Road (RRR) by sanctioning Rs 5,500 cr, the RRR is expected to take off soon. The RRR, which is around 300 km with 60 metres width ,is proposed to strengthen the existing roads. It connects the major National Highways like NH-9, NH-7 and NH-202 and once it is operational, those residing on the outskirts of the city need not travel to the city to get on the highways.

The RRR project corridor is divided into four quadrants with reference to the crossing points of National Highways. North East Quadrant: Tupran (NH- 44) to Malkapur (NH - 65) with a length of 93.65 km. South East Quadrant covers Malkapur (NH - 65) to Shadnagar (NH - 44) with a length of 78.150 km.

The South West Quadrant covers Shadnagar (NH - 44) to Koulampet (NH - 65) with 68.150 km while North West Quadrant passes from Koulampet (NH - 65) to Tupran (NH - 44) with 50 km. The RRR connects Ibrahimpatnam, Bibinagar, Bommalaramam, Mulugu, Kothur, Malkapur, Shadnagar, Warangal, Toopran, Dunti, Shivampet, Narsapur, Daulatabad, Isamilapet, Eddumailaramam, Shankarapply, Chevella, Tadlapalle, Shahbad, Farooq Nagar, Kothiyal, Gundlaguda and Rachlur etc. It passes through 125 villages all along the alignment. There are about 25 spinal roads connecting ORR to RRR.

These include 10 National and State Highway roads and the remaining are new spinal roads and these will provide connectivity from ORR to RRR. The cost of the project is around Rs 2,500 crore for two lane carriageway and around Rs 5,000 crore for four lane carriageway, which also includes land acquisition cost.
The RRR passes through the existing road on five Reserve Forest areas which requires widening. They include Mulugu (1.700 km), Muduchintalapally (1.100 km), Kothiyal (0.600 km), Kappa Pahad (2 km) and Narsapur (4.300 km). It passes through four level crossings near Brahmanpally, Shankarpally, Lingareddyguda and Pagidipally.The RRR was envisaged for decentralised growth of the city and proposed to develop multiple sub nuclei centres around Hyderabad.
