Railways has given the nod to take up Gunadala road overbridge
The Vijayawada Guntur Tenali Mangalagiri Urban Development Authority (VGTM UDA) has set December as new deadline to complete the Inner Ring Road (IRR) project that was launched in 2009.
Major hurdle
The project was supposed to be completed by 2011. The construction of two bridges that were taken up as part of the
IRR Project have been a major hurdle in the completion of the project.
With the Railways giving a nod to take up Gunadala Road over Bridge (RoB), the project is expected to be completed by December. The Railways, however, is yet to give a final estimate for the Gunadala RoB.
It will approximately cost Rs.54 crore. The Railway portion will be around Rs.25 crore.
The UDA will pay the amount to the Railways as soon as the demand was raised, UDA officials say.
The progress of work on Inner Ring Road (IRR) is likely to gain momentum with the Railways clearing decks for construction of Road over Bridge (RoB). Another RoB at Ramavarappadu is nearing completion.
The Ramavarappadu RoB is being constructed at a cost of Rs.29.32 core. Of this, the Railway portion is Rs.7.32 crore.
The UDA is gearing up to construct the approaches for the Ramavarappadu RoB, UDA officials said.
The UDA is executing the 10-km IRR project in four phases. It completed the phase-I and IV works. The Authority is constructing RoBs in phase II and III.
The IRR is designed to become one of the bypasses to divert the traffic coming from Hyderabad on NH-9 and intending to join NH-5 to go towards Eluru.
It means that vehicles can take the Gollapudi bypass and reach Milk Project passing through the tunnel. After crossing the proposed Nainavaram flyover as and when it is completed, vehicles can get on to the IRR.
The IRR will pass through Ambapuram and Nuzvid Road (at IBM College) before cutting through Nunna-Gunadala Road at Payakapuram. As and when this is also completed, it is expected to become much easier for vehicles to join NH-5 by almost completely avoiding city traffic.
The Benz Circle and MG Road within the city and Benz Circle to Ramavarapupadu will get decongested.
