"The government's goal is to make Hyderabad a world-class city", Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister, K Taraka Ramarao announced in the state assembly. He also announced developing the roads with a loan of Rs 5,900 crore for the development of roads and the projects undertaken under SRDP are nearing completion. The Minister said this as a part of a brief discussion in the assembly on the development of roads in Hyderabad.
Minister KTR answered a question asked by members during question hour. "We brought SRDP studying the city roads for three years. Traffic has become a major problem in Hyderabad with overcrowded vehicles. It will be resolved very soon. Twenty-two flyovers have been completed in the first phase of SRDP at a cost of Rs 2,000 crore. The government is also focusing on the suburbs of Greater Hyderabad. In LB Nagar alone, Nala development works are going on with Rs 850 crore," the minister said.
"Every rupee spent is being spent for the development of the state. Every location in Hyderabad is connected to the flyover and link roads. Construction work of roads worth Rs 1545 crore is underway in Charminar and South zones. Work on the Flyover in Old City will begin soon. Every rupee spent in the manufacturing sector should be seen as a future investment. Development and economic activities would boom with the construction of new roads and the government will also get revenue in the future. Plans are also complete for the second phase of SRDP," he added.
