Three Gates of Musi project lifted to release excess water in Telangana

Following a near-maximum level of water in the Musi project, officials lifted three gates on Monday. When the inflow in the project reached 1247.79 cusecs, gates 3, 7, and 10 were lifted to 3-ft level.

A total of 644.6 feet of water have been accumulated in the project, compared with a total of 645 feet in the reservoir. A total of 4.36 TMC of water is included in the project compared to a capacity of 4.46 TMC.

Local residents living near the project were informed four days ago that the gates had been lifted to release excess water.

The Musi project’s water level reached near full capacity in June for the first time in five decades. It happened due to rainfall causing an increase in water.

Metro connectivity between Raidurg and Hyderabad airport is being geared up by officials

A metro rail connection between Raidurg and Hyderabad International Airport is being planned by the Municipal Administration Department as a part of its ongoing effort to improve Telangana’s infrastructure.

As part of the project, the department plans to build an Elevated Bus Rapid Transit System (EBRTS) from KPHB to Kokapet, along with 15 bridges over Musi River as well as a 21-km cycle track on ORR with solar-covered roofs. A solar panel-covered track will connect Nanakramguda to TSPA and Narsingi to Kollur between the main carriageway and service roads. 42 kilometers will be the length of the loop.

Deficiencies and shortages of funds caused these projects to be grounded last year, says K T Rama Rao, of Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD). Along with Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar, the Minister and others released the annual report of MAUD for 2021-22 on Friday.

Among the three most urbanized states in the country, Telangana is the third and fourth, according to the Minister. Additionally, he said, the state’s urban economy is among the fastest-growing in the nation.
