Telangana Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao (KTR) has announced a significant step towards improving Hyderabad’s transportation infrastructure as he inaugurated the state’s first steel flyover.
The flyover, part of the Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP), marks a milestone in the city’s development efforts. KTR emphasized the government’s commitment to inclusive progress, irrespective of caste or creed.
Speaking during the inauguration of the Naini Narasimha Reddy Steel Bridge, which spans from Indira Park to VST Square, KTR highlighted the city’s transformation under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR). He applauded the government’s dedication to enhancing urban facilities and commemorated the former Home Minister Naini Narasimha Reddy by naming the bridge after him.
The steel flyover, standing at 2.62 km with an elevated corridor spanning 2.436 km, is a testament to modern engineering and marks a departure from traditional concrete structures. Costing Rs 450 crore, it is a part of the government’s efforts to reduce traffic congestion and enhance connectivity.
KTR used the occasion to address political matters, expressing concern about divisive forces that could hinder the city’s progress. He urged citizens to be discerning in their political choices, cautioning against those who have failed to deliver results over the past six decades.
The inauguration of this steel flyover represents Telangana’s resolve to create a cosmopolitan city with world-class amenities. It paves the way for faster, signal-free travel from Indira Park Junction to Ashok Nagar, bringing convenience and reducing travel time for the citizens.
