Hyderabad: Musi river bridges to be renovated soon, will feature heritage highlights

The Musi river’s Paris-style bridges will be renovated soon and will showcase historical highlights. The Minister of Municipal Administration K. Tarakrama Rao has directed the departments to preserve and renovate the river bridges and present them as cultural heritage.

He emphasized the importance of utilizing the services of experts and experienced institutions. KTR sought an assessment of Municipal Administration Department officials and reviewed the progress of development works under Greater Hyderabad at the (HBCL) office in Nanakramguda.

The officials who had visited Paris presented their designs via PowerPoint and submitted a report on the bridges to be built on the Musi river. After reviewing the report, KTR made suggestions and recommendations for bridge construction. He proposed that the bridges towards the old city be designed to reflect the historical structures of the respective areas.

The majority of the development projects were carried out in the IT corridor in the west of the city.  KTR presented special plans to city officials for the development of the city’s eastern and northern southern areas.

Hyderabad fastest developing city in India

In light of Hyderabad’s rapid growth which demands appropriate infrastructure to be put in place, KTR said the State government will follow a strategic approach in order to make sure that future generations don’t face hardships.

Rama Rao said Hyderabad is the fastest developing city in the country and that infrastructure must match its rapid growth. In this regard, K Chandrashekhar Rao formulated the SRDP way back in 2015.

According to Rama Rao, the city has undergone a major transformation with 47 projects proposed under SRDP Phase I and 12 additional projects proposed under SRDP Phase II. Among the 47 projects completed in Phase-I, 31 have been completed, including 15 flyovers, five underpasses, seven ROBs/RUBs and a cable-stayed bridge. Other projects are at different stages of completion, he said.

He stated that the Telangana government has opened a number of flyovers in recent months to improve traffic flow and reduce commute times. In addition to flyovers, he said that the government has constructed numerous footover-bridges and roadways underneath bridges. Minister KTR also emphasized how the Haritha Haram program is improving the landscape of the city and its surroundings.
