Police Lines on the road of Amberpet to open

Flyover cleared at Amberpet, alternative roads found.

Hyderabad: The decade-long problems of people living near the Central Police Lines in Amberpet will end soon as the government is lifting the ban on the use of CPL roads. The people from colonies near CPL like MCH Colony, Owaisi Nagar, Umar Nagar, Raghunath Nagar, Bapu Nagar, Chenna Reddy Nagar, Patel Nagar, New Patel Nagar and Prem Nagar used to travel through CPL roads.

After the twin blasts and the Mecca Masjid blast in 2007, the CPL authorities closed the roads to civilians as many police facilities existed on CPL campus. At present, the State Armed Reserve (SAR) battalion, Police Trai-ning Centre (PTC), Cyberabad Police Transport Organisation (PTO) and Amberpet police station function from CPL. Due to the Metro Rail works at Malakpet, the police is diverting vehicles from Chaderghat to Dilsukhnagar through Nimboli Adda, Golnaka, and Amberpet. Due to the additional traffic on the road, Amberpet junction experiences jams.

The all-party committee under the leadership of former MP V. Hanumantha Rao and Amberpet MLA G. Kishan Reddy identified alternative roads to avoid the traffic problem at Amberpet junction. Mr Kishan said the Centre has sanctioned a flyover at Amberpet and TS would sanction it during the budget session. “During the construction, alternatives are needed for the Warangal highway. We have identified alternatives. Meanwhile, the government will allow traffic through CPL roads from Gandhi Bomma Junc-tion to Amberpet police station. The police will open CPL roads to the public when works begin,” he said.

During GHMC elections Home minister Nayini Narsimha Reddy had promised locals on this issue. The all-party panel had met then Home minister P. Sabitha Reddy regarding the matter and have been continuing their fight seeking reopening of the roads.
