Hyderabad: Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has set a target of completing the underpass works at Raheja Mindspace junction, Hitec City by this December and the flyover works by June next year.
In addition to these, the municipal corporation is also constructing utility duct and stormwater drain equipped service road at the junction.
The works taken up at a cost of Rs 103 crore and were progressing in full steam at the junction near Cyber Towers which is replete with corporate companies and is a high traffic zone.
These two works have been taken up to address not only the present traffic issues in the area but also to address the future needs.
