Musi river rejuvenation, a development planned at Rs.16,634 crore

According to Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao, the State Government is taking a multi-pronged strategy to River Musi restoration, beautification, and development, with an estimated expenditure of Rs.16,634 crore.

The Minister also announced that the government would begin SRDP second phase work in all GHMC zones at a cost of Rs.3,115 crore.

During question hour in the Assembly on Thursday, the Minister stated that the TRS Government was devoted and determined to revitalise and develop the River Musi.

“Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was personally spearheading these efforts, and we will achieve what we promise,” Rama Rao declared as TRS MPs thumped their benches in the House.

The Minister stated that Rs.9,000 crore was suggested for the elevated East to West elevated corridor along the River Musi as part of the River Musi restoration and development projects. The State Government was constructing a river link from Kondapochamma to Gandipet at a cost of Rs.1,250 crore. Aside from that, 31 STPs were suggested in decentralised places with a budget of Rs.3,866 crore, and he stated that these projects would be completed by December of this year.

Around Rs.2,000 crore was allowed for River Musi beautification, 14 bridges across River Esa and River Musi will be built with Rs.545 crore, and three check dams worth nearly Rs.300 crore were also planned, he stated.

All of these projects would be coordinated by the HMDA, GHMC, HMWSSB, and R&B departments, he noted.

The Minister stated that the average speed in other cities in the country was less than 30 kmph, whereas in Hyderabad it was more than 40 kmph. This was owing to the TRS Government’s road infrastructure, he said, adding that it was emphasised by visitors from other places to Hyderabad during various programmes.

The traffic police were fining drivers for exceeding the speed limit, but citizens were pleading for the limits to be raised. He stated that the GHMC, in collaboration with traffic enforcement and transportation, would conduct a study and finalise the city’s speed restrictions.
