Clean highway flanked with greenery is a unique attraction and it facilitates safe driving to large number of commuters and heavy vehicle road users. With domination of educational institutions and other facilities, Suchitra is drawing parallels to Kukapally. It is 15 kilometres from the Secunderabad Railway Station and 30 kilometres from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.

 

History:

The entire area around Suchitra was once a hub for grape gardens and farm houses owned by Kshatriya community since 1960. The area got its name because of an electronic component unit Suchitra Electronics Ltd, which was a major landmark.

Problems:

According to locals the State government has given permission to expand the MMTS phase II in different directions, which is being delayed due to administrative reasons. Presently, the MMTS service is run between Lingampally-Nampally, Lingampally-Falaknuma and Falaknuma-Nampally. The proposal to spread its reach to Shamshabad, Ghatkesar, Medchal and Patancheru is on paper and needs to be paced up.

 

Also, the Suchitra X Roads is witnessing heaving traffic jams during peak hours because of its highway connect and link to various schools and colleges. Another reason for the jam is that the four track road from Medchal towards Bowenpally has now turned to a three track road. Locals demand a kilometre’s stretch of service road from Suchitra Junction to Bowenpally. If army agrees to give a piece of their land, the entire traffic issue would be solved permanently.
