Teams from an infrastructure company and a consultancy company from China called on chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao at the latter’s camp office here on Wednesday.
China-based Anju Infrastructure company directors Yogesh and Manoj Gandhi and Radik Consultants chairman Raj Kumar called on Rao.
While Anju Infrastructure expressed readiness to take part in the construction of roads, bridges and suspension bridges, Radki consultants were ready to extend their service in urban planning. BP Singh from Bridge Designing also called on Rao.
Rao explained the visiting teams the need for urban planning in the state. He explained the strategic road development plan proposed in Hyderabad to the visiting delegation.
Rao told them that besides Hyderabad, cities like Khammam, Warangal, Karimnagar, Nizamabad and Ramagundam corporations too would be developed with international standards.
Rao explained the plans to construct 42-km long six-lane road on Musi and the proposed express highways connecting Warangal, Nalgonda and Karimnagar with Hyderabad.
Rao said the state government is planning to construct a suspension bridge on Durgam Cheruvu in the city.
Rao said they would prepare scientific plans for construction of flyovers, expressways, skyways, sewerage, drinking water and housing and others in these urban local bodies.
