Two more master plan roads opened to alleviate traffic congestion in Tirupati

Tirupati: The Municipal Corporation of Tirupati (MCT) inaugurated two new master plan roads in the eastern part of the temple city on Tuesday.

These roads, Rani Paranthaka Devi Marg and Ananthalwar Marg, formed part of the civic body's ambitious plan to construct 23 master plan roads to enhance the city infrastructure, easing traffic congestion and support the development of various areas.

TTD chairman and city MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy inaugurated the two news roads in the presence of city mayor Sireesha, deputy mayor Abhinay Reddy and MCT commissioner Haritha.

The Rani Paranthaka Devi Road and the Ananthalwar Marg were constructed at a cost of Rs 8.31 crore and Rs 2.50 crore, respectively. These are expected to significantly alleviate traffic congestion in the city. Thee new roads will connect the Renigunta road with Padmavathi Nagar, adjacent to the Tiruchanoor Road, providing a much-needed link for smoother traffic flow.

During the inauguration, Bhumana Karunakar emphasized the importance of the master plan roads in propelling Tirupati’s development. He expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to inaugurate Ananthalwar Marg, named in honour of Ananthalwar, an ardent devotee of Lord Venkateswara Ananthalwar.

The city MLA also noted that the Rani Paranthaka Devi Marg was named after the queen of Pallavas, who had made substantial donations to Lord Venkateswara Swamy temple. He highlighted the importance of naming the roads after notable women and ardent devotees of Lord Venkateswara Swamy, like Tirumala Nambi, Jagadguru Ramanujacharya, Ananthalwar, Nammalwar and Kulasekhara Alwar.

Deputy mayor Abhinay Reddy underscored the MCT's continuous efforts to improve the city’s infrastructure. He noted that the completion of 12 out of the proposed 23 Master Plan roads has already had a positive impact on reducing traffic congestion. These roads are crucial for the development of eastern localities, which have long suffered from inadequate road infrastructure, despite their proximity to the bus stand and railway station, he said.

“As of now, eight more roads are under various stages of completion as part of the MCT’s comprehensive plan to transform Tirupati's transportation infrastructure. The development of the master plan roads is expected to be a game-changer for the city, fostering growth and making daily commutes more efficient and convenient for residents and visiting devotees alike.” he added.
