Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has identified 131 slip roads across the city. The corporation would soon embark on land acquisition and road development plans (RDPs) after verifying the master plan.  Of the 131, as many as 108 slip roads fall under GHMC’s jurisdiction and 23 in HMDA’s while 62 roads were not earmarked in the city master plan.

A senior GHMC official, speaking to this newspaper after a review meeting chaired by municipal administration and urban development minister K.T. Rama Rao, said that priority will be given to 55 slips roads, which require acquisition of 960 properties. The official said the corporation has already prepared RDPs for 19 roads and the remaining would be completed in four weeks. He said that the properties would be acquired in two months and it could lead to further traffic congestion on the arterial roads across the city, especially on the western part.

 

He said that they would make necessary changes in the master plan to adjust 62 roads that are missing in it. Meanwhile, Mr Rao instructed the officials to lay 10 kilometre footpaths in each zone on a war-footing. He asked for expediting the construction of foot overbridges and bus bays that have been approved by the government.
