Hyderabad: The IT corridor housing several global corporate giants including Amazon, Microsoft and Google came to a standstill on Wednesday because of heavy rain. Even the Cyberabad traffic police was defeated by the two-hour gridlock.

Vehicles moved bumper-to-bumper at Biodiversity, Gachibowli Q-city and Gopanpally. Those who left office after 9 pm on Tuesday were stuck for hours.

 

Cars stuck in knee-deep water
Serilingampally, Gopanpally and Madhapur among other areas received the highest rainfall.

Narrating his ordeal Prudhvi Teja B, a corporate employee said, “Heavy waterlogging at Ayyappa society to Neeru’s junction (road no 36) blocked traffic from Madhapur, Shilparaman and Hitex. Vehicles broke down in the knee-high water and drivers waded with their cars.”

M. Vinay narrated the situation at Cyber Gateway- Hitech City. "The U-turn near cyber gateway for vehicles coming from Lemon Tree hotel was closed. Vehicles have to go to Hitech city junction and take a u-turn, causing disruption during evening office hours,” he said.

 

Swetha Sunder, who works at DLF building said: "Early evening showers caused water-logging at IIIT Junction and Gachibowli sub-station. Since the water did not recede, traffic was diverted towards Wipro-Nanakramguda rotary. This confined us in our cab for hours.”

Some start-ups have rescheduled office hours. “Employees were asked to come and leave early,” said Umesh Thota, CEO of a cybersecurity company.

Police chief Mahender Reddy has extended ‘Dial 100’ for commuting difficulties. “A high quantum of rain was recorded in Cyberabad,” said Hari Chandana Dasari, the GHMC's west zone commissioner. "It takes 15-20 minutes for the water to recede and this is holding up traffic during peak hours. There was a brief gridlock at Botanical gardens, Shilparamam.”
