Malkajgiri: In order to expedite the works of the RuB at Anandbagh, the Zonal Commissioner Raghu Prasad and the Chief City Planner S Devender Reddy, GHMC discussed with the CE (R&B) and explained the new proposal to change the alignment of RUB taking the existing road as criteria without affecting the properties. Now, the corporation saves an amount of Rs 3.85 crore on land acquisition of 18 properties and also saves valuable time on court litigations.
A detailed map was drawn avoiding curves so that the alignment with respect to centre of the road is taken into consideration and no acquisition of properties is required. The Chief Engineer, Roads & Buildings is convinced by the new proposals submitted by GHMC.
Aggrieved citizens who objected the design proposed by the R&B department approached High Court and obtained stay order on the acquisition of properties, shifting of water pipelines and other utilities. To reduce the traffic woes of residents of Malkajgiri and surrounding areas who have been demanding bridges at railway crossings for over two decade, a four lanes Road under Bridge (RuB) was proposed to come up at East Anandbagh. The roads and buildings (R&B) department and GHMC together took up the task to construct RuB at East Anandbagh.
The plan was to complete the RUB within 24 months after commencement of the work. The funds have been allocated, the work has started in full pace. The meeting was attended by K Venugopal, Additional Commissioner, J Kameswara Rao, EE, TSSPDCL, P Anil Raju, EE, N V S Mani Babu of R & B, B Narsing Rao, Assistant City Planner, B Praveen Kumar, CI, K Narender, Deputy GM, HMWSSB, B Prasada Rao, City Planner, Secunderabad, Madhavi, DGM, HMWSSB, Mallesham, JTO, and BSNL.
