The works of Skywalk for pedestrians in Mehdipatnam have come to a halt. While HMDA was working to make the Skywalk available quickly, it was blocked by Defence officials claiming that the proposed main road was within their jurisdiction. They obstructed the working workers and equipment was also taken. It is learned that the Defence officials have assured that the work will proceed only if a permit is obtained from the Defence Ministry in Delhi.


Mehedipatnam Junction is one of the busiest junctions. Although there is a PVNR Express from this junction, the traffic on the road is heavy. For the most part of the day, there is a situation where pedestrians cannot cross the road. With this, the Skywalk project was proposed under the auspices of HMDA at a cost of Rs 34.28 crore. It has been decided to set up a 380-meter steel skywalk, a 50-meter wide cable-stayed bridge, a commercial complex with two bus bays connecting the skywalk, and also pedestrian lifts.


Skywalk works were launched by HMDA last year and are set to be made available next month. Pillars have already been arranged from Asifnagar Road and Gudimalkapur Road. Work is underway to erect the pillars. Pits are to be dug for the pillars at the bus stop on the opposite side of the road from the farmer's market to the military barracks. While doing these works. the Defence‌ officers came in two vehicles and stopped them. It is learned that the HMDA had tried to negotiate with the local Defence officials after the works were halted but could not find an appointment. They have asked them to come with a permit from Delhi.
