Traffic & Roads

Last updated in July 2013

 

Due to the high density of population, demography, location and to some extent poor planning over the years, traffic is a challenging issue faced by residents of Kukatpally (and it is no wonder that this problem masks most of the other issues). As MLA of this constituency since 2009, JP has come up with a holistic approach to provide relief to the residents by accelerating long pending projects, proposing and working promptly on new roads, and connection flyovers where found essential to ease traffic, repairing and recarpeting critical traffic bearing roads, and removing deadlocks in administrative issues to help things go smoothly.

 

Apart from focusing on the big flyovers, bridges, road subways, a thorough emphasis on many link roads to ease traffic on main roads has been done.

 

Though this is not entirely in our control, we actively worked with RTC staff and focused on improving RTC bus travel by relocating some bus stops where logistics have permitted. Some of the major achievements till date are listed below. But inspite of all this, JP has always emphasized that new roads are not the only solution for the traffic problem especially in a constituency like Kukatpally which is full of dynamism. While roads are necessary, long term solutions are only possible when cost effective and quality public transport with good connectivity is available to all.

 

Video testimonials of work on internal connecting roads are given on this page.

 

To get a glimpse of what we faced to complete the HITEC City flyover, please listen to JP in the short, one minute clip on the left. It is indicative of the difficulties we face on a daily basis. This is no exaggeration - JP actually made more than 40 phone calls specifically to get one approval file moving!

 

Highlights of Completed and Ongoing Works

 

    • HITEC City Flyover finally opened.

       

      We can proudly mention that the successful opening of HITEC city flyover was achieved inspite of numerous deadlocks and challenges through JP’s persistence and his adept and insightful handling of the situation. Instead of simply undertaking fasts/ bandhs this is the story in more details. Click here to read a summary of the issue of HITEC City flyover.
