Hyderabad: In a major boost for infrastructure development in the northern corridor of Hyderabad, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) approved the proposed expansion of a 10-km stretch between Suchitra and Kompally junctions on National Highway 44 connecting Hyderabad and Nagpur. The works will be taken up at an estimated cost of Rs 492 crore on EPC mode (Engineering, Procurement and Construction).
The 482nd meeting of the Executive Committee of NHAI held recently approved the proposed expansion and issued necessary orders in this regard. The Roads and Buildings Department in association with the NHAI has already prepared the Detailed Project Reports (DPR) for these works.
Accordingly, the six-laning of the 10 km-stretch will be taken up with three flyovers, four underpasses, service roads, and also widening of junctions on the Suchitra-Gundlapochampally/Kompally route.
The proposed project is aimed at decongesting traffic on the busy Hyderabad-Nagpur Highway, by constructing three elevated corridors (flyovers) at Suchitra/Dairy Farm junction, Cine Planet/Jeedimetla junction and Kompally/Dhoolapally junction, covering a total of 10 km.
The NHAI will soon invite bids for the project, officials of NHAI-Hyderabad informed the Roads and Buildings authorities on Wednesday.
