KCR Sanctions Rs 78 Crore For Second ROB On Hanamkonda-Khazipet Route:- The construction of a second road-over-bridge (ROB) has been approved by the Telangana State government at an estimated cost of Rs 78 crore. This move of the government will ease traffic troubles on the Hanamkonda-Khazipet route.
In addition to the proposed second ROB, the existing ROB will remain operational and reduce traffic congestion on the route. The proposal has been cleared by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, thus enabling the State government to fund the construction of the second ROB. An order sanctioning necessary funds in this regard, has already been issued by the Roads and Buildings department.
For a long time, the proposal for construction of the second ROB has been pending and the existing ROB has become a bottle neck for vehicularists, with increasing vehicular traffic.
Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari interfered and took up the issue with the railway authorities. Even though the railway officials have agreed to sanction permission for second ROB, they have made it clear that they cannot sanction funds for the project as per rules which prohibit funding in the presence of existing ROB.
Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao, learning about the troubles, cleared the proposals and directed the officials to fund the project on behalf of the State government. The Chief Minister was thanked by Kadiam Srihari for the gesture, which would ultimately put an end to the sufferings of people of Hanamkonda and Khazipet. He said that for the speedy construction of the ROB, the tender process will be initiated shortly.
