Jubilee Hills Check Post is probably one of the most important landmarks in Hyderabad city. Daily, scores of people cross the checkpoint as they go to work or the upscale localities of Jubilee Hills or Banjara Hills. However, for quite some time, the traffic has become heavy, and one has to wait for a few minutes when the signal is on at the check post. The traffic and civic authorities are coming together to make it a signal-free zone where the traffic can flow freely to address this issue.
Additional city traffic commissioner AV Ranganath surveyed the area to make the Jubilee Hills X roads or check post better and develop it. He was accompanied by engineering cell inspector Srinivasa Reddy, GHMC EE Vijaykumar, AE Venkatesh, and CRMP manager Sriram Murthy, among others. They later discussed the steps that needed to be taken to make Jubilee Hills check post a ‘signal-free’ junction.
Soon, the civic authorities and traffic department will work on a strategy wherein the vehicles from all four sides can flow freely even during peak hours without the need for signals. Towards this end, they made plans to widen the roads and footpaths in the area. Apart from that, on all four sides of the check post, U-turns will be allowed on all four sides. A U-turn at Banjara Hills Road No. 2 gymkhana will be provided, facilitating the movement of vehicles going from Jubilee Hills Road No 1 TV5 office towards Jubilee Hills Rd No. 45 Film Nagar.
Another measure being taken is to facilitate free left turns. Right now, traffic movement is one way from Jubilee Hills Road No 36 Kalanjali towards Chiranjeevi Blood Bank. So, going forward, a route change is being proposed.
To ease the traffic woes of people who cross the Jubilee Hills check post daily, the traffic police and GHMC have decided to work in tandem.
