TS to spend Rs. 750 cr on Rajiv Rahadari alignment

The Telangana government has decided to rectify the alignment of ‘Rajiv Rahadari’ – Hyderabad-Karimnagar-Mancherial road – by constructing by-pass roads in 10 villages, flyovers at three places and bus-bays and shelters at 68 places at an estimated cost of Rs. 750 crore.

The decision was taken by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao at a review meeting with the officials here on Friday. The road was constructed without proper planning and alignment and it had become an abode of accidents with blind curves, unnecessary turns and running through middle of the villages, he stated.

Stating that the 206-km long road was causing inconvenience to people of several villages due to its alignment through them, the Chief Minister said it was also bothering vehicles plying on it as they have to slow down at such points. He directed the officials to construct by-pass roads at Pragnapur, Kukkanurpalli, Gauraram, Vantimamidipalli, Turkapalli, Duddeda, Mulugu, Kodakandla, Ramunipatla and Ibrahimnagar.

He asked the authorities to plan flyovers at Shamirpet, Siddipet and Elkaturthi and creation of road-side amenties including cafeteria, fuel, toilets, parking place in 15 acres land each at Siddipet and between Sultanabad and Peddapalli. Further, he told the officials to extend the state highway till Chandara in Adilabad district .

On Hyderabad-Warangal road, the Chief Minister directed the officials to extend the four-lane road constructed till Yadagirigutta now till Warangal including construction of by-pass roads at Warangal, Jangaon and Alair. He also asked the officials to take up up-gradation of state highways of Jagitial-Karimnagar-Warangal, Kuravi-Khammam-Kodad and Nizampet-Narayanakhed-Bidar as national highways.

In all, the State Government was planning to spent Rs. 12,000 crore on improvement of roads in Telangana over the next two years, the Chief Minister said.
