Hyderabad: Keeping in view the increasing number of vehicles, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is coming up with an Urban Junction Improvement Plan to ensure seamless traffic flow at different junctions across the city.

Accordingly, the civic body identified 30 junctions to be developed in the first phase and roped in Urban Mass Transit Company Limited for proposing junction improvements at different locations.

The plan is aimed at better traffic management at the junctions and targets the traffic population scenario over the next five to seven years. The objective is to reduce journey time, facilitating free left movement, improving pedestrian facilities and other road safety infrastructure.

The contemplated junction improvements aim to provide facilities such as pedestrian refugee islands, footpaths, pedestrian guard rail and pelican crossings for the safety of pedestrians. The junction improvements also include increasing the width of carriageway, improvement of free lefts by providing left turn channelisers, road markings and signboards.
