The infrastructure in Hyderabad is improving by leaps and bounds. The city may have the country’s longest Highway Road Tunnel if the plans are on. GHMC is evaluating the feasibility of a four-lane tunnel from Jubilee Hills Road No 45 Junction to Banjara Hills, Road No. 12 Junction.
The proposed 10 Kilometer tunnel road will pass via the KBR Park junction to NFCL Junction, Punjagutta, and would be dug using a Tunnel Boring Machine. The traffic in this area has become a huge menace and Telangana Government planned had earlier proposed six junctions around the KBR Park by constructing multi-level flyovers under the SRDP project.
But then the court has stalled the project as it requires the felling of over 1,500 trees. Thus this project will save that many trees. The feasibility study will begin soon and the Detailed Project Report (DPR) will be prepared by engaging technical consultants from the world over. Presently, the Syama Prasad Mookerjee Tunnel is the longest in India at 9.20 km and connects Kashmir to the rest of the country.
