The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to construct an underpass from Uppal Junction to Rasoolpura junction  of 40 meters width  and the length will be decided after conducting a comprehensive feasibility survey which will be undertaken soon.

Under Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP), the civic body will complete SRDP phase I in five packages. Package I includes multi-level flyovers and grade separators at six junctions, KBR Park entrance, Maharaja Agrasen Jn (Road No.12), Film Nagar, Road No.45 Junction, Jubilee Hills Check-Post Junction and Cancer Hospital Junction (Road No.10 Junction) at a cost of around Rs 322.92 crore.

Package II includes LB Nagar Junction, Bairamalguda Junction, Kamineni Hospital Junction on Inner Ring Road and Chintalkunta Check-post Junction at a  wcost of Rs 331.38 crore.

According GHMC official, under SRDP package III, the civic body had decided to construct grade separators and elevated corridors from Uppal to Rasoolpura junction at an estimated cost of Rs 160.7 crore.

Due to land acquisition and other technical problems the civic body had decided to check for other alternatives. This was discussed in a high level meeting chaired by Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K Taraka Rama Rao.

Package IV includes the construction of multi-level Biodiversity Park Junction, Ayyappa Society Junction, Rajiv Gandhi Statue Junction and Mind Space (Rs 196.13 crore). Package V includes the construction and improvement of grade separators or flyovers at Owaisi Hospital and Bahadurpura (Rs 86.21 crore).

The civic body has to acquire about 200 prime properties in the Uppal-Rasoolpura stretch for the project.  The SRDP had been running at brisk pace in the remaining areas.

The civic body officials said that in order to minimise property and land acquisition, they  will now conduct a feasible study to construct an underpass on the stretch.
