Hyderabad: IT Minister KT Rama Rao has asked the Hyderabad City Police to consider traffic restrictions on the busy Tank Bund on Sundays.
The Minister’s direction came after a citizen pointed out on Twitter that though the government was installing several new facilities on the popular stretch, families were still finding it difficult to enjoy these facilities because crossing the road through the traffic towards the lakeside was a nightmare.
“Why not restrict traffic movement on Sunday evening between 5 to 8 pm on Tank Bund, citizen’s can enjoy the beautiful facility provided by your Government. It’s total chaos now families struggling to cross from left to right it’s pedestrian nightmare right now,” (sic) tweeted the citizen, who uses the handle Ashok Chandrasekar.

Terming this a ‘Good suggestion’, the Minister replied: “Request @CPHydCity to consider & plan with your team on implementation,” (sic), tagging Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar.
The State government through the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has been introducing a number of citizen-oriented facilities on Tank Bund and the nearby PV Narasimha Rao Marg (Necklace Road). These include better walkways, designer lamp posts, CCTV surveillance and enhanced security, better seating arrangements with aesthetic shelters and even rainproof benches.
