Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) Commissioner and Special Officer Somesh Kumar, along with joint collector B Sanjeevaiah, Addl Commissioner (traffic) Jitender and SCB CEO Sujatha Gupta, inspected cantonment roads on Saturday to search for alternate routes.

“We will construct new roads if the Army allots 100 feet of area near the north and south boundaries and 60 feet of area on east and west boundaries. We have informed the same to the High Court,” said Somesh Kumar.

Officials will hold discussions with Governor ESL Narasimhan on the Army’s decision to block cantonment roads on December 26.
