The basic work of forming buffer zone around Charminar has just completed. As per the information of Municipal Administration Department, the works pertaining to bridge construction would be carried out by the Hyderabad Road Development Corporation. The government has permitted the GHMC to call the tenders for the same. MAUD principal secretary Arvind Kumar has instructed the civic department in this regard. The proposed bridge would be for the pedestrians and there would be place for the vendors on both the sides.

The displaced hawkers and pavement vendors have been given place near Pancha Mahalla, Charminar bus terminal area temporarily.
