Though the Cyberabad Police released an advisory informing the people about the traffic restrictions on the Bangalore Highway – Aram Ghar to Puranapool stretch, from November 5, no curbs have rolls out yet by the police as heavy vehicles of all forms are as usual seen moving on the road at Bahadurpura stretch.
While the Bahadurpura Bridge works are already in progress, the new Zoo Park to Aram Ghar Bridge works were grounded in the month of September this year on the same stretch making the busy highway completely choked where construction material where stone blasts were seen scattering over the road while the water stagnation has turned the road entirely muddy filled with potholes.
It is pertinent to mention here that a new flyover project from Zoo Park to Aram Ghar is coming up with an outlay of total Rs. 636.80 crore under Strategic Road Development Program (SRDP) and after completing the soil testing process, the officials have now took up deep excavation on the stretch from Danamma Huts to Shastripuram Junction.
It is against this background, the Cyberabad Police rolled out traffic restrictions on this busy stretch and issued a traffic advisory specifying that the curbs will be enforced from November 15 to February 15, 2022 next year.
However, heavy vehicles like trucks, lorries, containers and RTC busses are seen plying on the road as usual on November 15, the first day of the restriction as explained by the Cyberabad Police. The heavy volume of traffic squarely makes the stretch completely congested and dirt ridden much to the chagrin of passengers. On the entire 8 kilometer long stretch from Aram Ghar to Puranapool, Bahadurpura Cross road is the major bottleneck where the bridge work is under progress for several years.
It is said that Traffic authorities are still busy in making arrangements to bring curbs on the road.
“The preparations would take two to three more days to bring curbs at play on Aram Ghar to Puranapul road. We have to arrange cine boards and barricades on designated places besides deployment of traffic volunteers to guide the passengers,” Informed Shyam Sunder Reddy, Circle Inspector Traffic Rajenranagar.
