Due to of the upcoming monsoon season, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has banned road cutting and digging until further orders are issued. However, permissions were granted to government departments and private agencies for road cutting in order to lay optical fiber cable, pipelines, and other infrastructure.
Some of the departments excavating roads were the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB), Transmission Corporation of Telangana Limited (TSTRANSCO), and Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSSPDCL).
Road cuttings would be halted as part of pre-monsoon preparations, and trench filling with stone dust and temporary restoration would be performed by the departments and agencies that excavated the roads.
The road cuttings should be restored by May 31, and the GHMC Executive Engineers will take the necessary steps to ensure that road users are not inconvenienced.
The ban is expected to be lifted on October 31, and permission from the GHMC Commissioner is required if there is an urgent need to dig a specific road.
“Any special requirement to dig a road should be brought to the notice of the GHMC Commissioner and specific permission should be obtained and all necessary precautions at the site are mandatory,” said an official.
According to the order issued by the GHMC Commissioner, if road cutting instructions are flouted, the Executive Engineers involved will be held accountable.
Additionally, future road cutting applications submitted by the department or agency that violated the instructions will be reviewed.
