Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh capital master plan has listed the priority projects in four phases to be completed one after the other depending on funding and investments.

The government complex, Hitech industry, University, Seed commercial are the core areas listed from Phase I to IV. Apart from these, the priority roads to be laid were also identified.

The master plan lists 87 km of roads as priority and 22 km of Mass Rapid Transport system as priority rail line. The MRT will initially connect Tullur to the government complex and then to commercial zone and to Vijayawada city.

Most of the priority roads connect the capital city to national highway. Each core area will have influence areas which are residential townships.

According to CRDA for the successful implementation of the Amaravati capital city master plan, priority projects and their influence areas have been proposed for guiding the implementation and government budget requirements for immediate and future projects.

A CRDA official said, “Priority projects are divided into infrastructure and development projects. As part of the land pooling layouts, it is necessary to provide access in the first phase to all the existing settlements inside the capital city.

To achieve this, road segments have been identified from the proposed road network, that need to be built on priority in order to give access to these villages. In the short term of the first 10 years, these roads need not be built to its full capacity, but as the demand builds up in the future they can be upgraded. The same routes can also be used for BRT routes in the short term. These roads will also increase the number of access points from adjacent areas from NH5.”
