CM KCR keeps his word, sanctions cable bridge across Munneru in Khammam 

CM KCR has kept his word yet again. As promised in the mammoth public meeting at Khammam, the CM has sanctioned a bridge across the river Munneru in Khammam. A Government Order was released to this effect. 

An amount of Rs. 180 crores was sanctioned for the construction of this 420-meter bridge of which 300 meters is cable-stayed and the remaining 120 meters is RCC type. The high-level cable bridge will come up on Suryapet to Ashwaraopet road in Khammam town limits. 

It has to be recalled that the Telangana government has constructed two cable-stayed bridges after the state formation. The one that came up across the Durgam Cheruvu lake in Hyderabad has turned out to be a major tourist attraction. The works of the Karimnagar cable bridge are nearing completion and the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has proposed a cable-stayed bridge at Mir Alam Tank. 

Also, the government has built two suspension bridges across the lakes in Siddipet and Khammam towns. These suspension bridges became a popular hangout spot for the locals.
