TIRUPATI: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy would inaugurate the Srinivasa Sethu elevated expressway corridor in Tirupati on Monday.
The project, with a total cost of Rs 684 crore, was funded jointly by the TTD and the Tirupati Smart City Corporation Ltd, with a contribution ratio of 67:33. The elevated expressway is designed to connect various parts of the temple city, providing a hassle-free movement for devotees heading to Tirumala. This project addressed the long-standing problem of traffic congestion for locals.
The Municipal Corporation of Tirupati, responsible for implementing the Smart City project, initiated the construction works on Feb 17, 2018. Initially, a two-year timeline was set for the flyover’s completion. However, the project faced delays due to design modifications and the Covid-19 pandemic.

By now, three phases of the Srinivasa Sethu elevated expressway were completed and opened to the public. These phases include the elevated corridor from the Srinivasam pilgrim complex to Kapila Theertham; from Karakambadi road to Leela Mahal junction; and from the mango yard near Tiruchanoor to Renigunta roads.
The official inauguration ceremony will be held at the Mango Market near the flyover.

Chief minister Jagan Reddy would arrive in Tirupati at 3:15 pm on Monday. He will proceed to the starting point of the project near the mango yard by 3:50pm. After inaugurating the flyover, the CM will also virtually inaugurate the SV Arts College hostel building and commence the distribution of house sites to TTD employees.

At 4:30am, the chief minister would visit the Thataiahagunta Gangamma temple and offer prayers to the goddess.

Jagan Reddy would reach Tirumala by 5:40pm. At the hill town, he would inaugurate the newly constructed Vakulamata and Rachna guest houses and then proceed to the Padmavati guest house. Subsequently, he would visit the Bedi Anjaneya Swamy temple at 7:45pm. On behalf of the state government, he would carry silk robes on his head to offer them to Lord Venkateswara at the Srivari temple.

Following the darshan, the chief minister would release TTD’s 2024 calendars and diaries. He would participate in the Pedda Sesha Vahana Seva and stay the night at the Padmavathi guest house.
On Tuesday morning, the chief minister would revisit the Srivari temple at 6:20am and depart from Tirumala at 7:30am to reach the airport. He would take a special flight from there to Orvakal.
