Finally, the frequent traffic jam issues can be reined in since it is touted to be a wide road and to be laid by taking all necessary scientific measures. Traffic coming from Lal Darwaza and Falaknuma would be eased once this road is completed. The Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumin (CRMB) road works at Puranapul would be carried out at the cost of Rs 8 crore. This road is being constructed from Puranapul to Shah Ali Banda passing through City College Junction, Musabowli. This road would be constructed by taking all the necessary scientific methods and it would be 3,070 meters long.
This small stretch is very important since it is very close to the historical sites including Charminar, Chowmohalla Palace and others. This would also boost the Charminar Pedestrian Project (CPP) that aims to develop the infrastructural facilities across the historical and tourist sites.
Citizens have appreciated this step and demanded the authorities to also concentrate on the other parts of the city. Advocate Shafiullah Quadri from Old City said that the planned development projects were winning hearts of people but there was a need of similar plan for internal areas. “Several colonies, localities and areas in Old City are marred with poor road infrastructure and potholes. Several major roads in the interior areas need same immediate attention of the authorities given to the important localities”, he said. Works at the stretch inaugurated by KTR may begin soon.
