Hyderabad: The road plan (alignment) of the southern part of the Regional Ring Road to be constructed from beyond the Hyderabad Outer Ring Road has come to an end. It is reported that the field study has confirmed that a road distance of 189.23 km will have to be constructed. It has increased by 7.37 kilometers compared to the distance proposed by the state government earlier. It is known that the Center has announced the Regional Ring Road under the Bharatmala Project. With permission from the state government as well, the Delhi-based ‘Intercontinental Consultants and Technocrats Limited’ has submitted the proposals for the alignment of the southern part to the Union Ministry of Transport and National Highways.
In two parts..
The regional ring road is being constructed in two parts. Land acquisition for the northern part is in final stage. The Center had selected a contractor less than three months ago to study the southern route. At the field level the organization conducted a thorough study and reported the draft proposals to the state government. The state government suggested that the road plan should be prepared so that the water reservoirs located in three and four areas do not face any problems, and the changes were added and reported to the center. The distance of the regional ring road has reached 347.87 km. Previously, the northern part was proposed as 158.416 km.
It has increased slightly to 158.645 km. To that extent, the center has issued a gazette notification for land acquisition. Recently the study of the southern part has been completed. Earlier it was proposed to be 181.864 km but now the route has increased to 189.23 km. The southern part passes through Kandi, Nawabpet, Chevella, Shabad, Shadnagar, Amanagallu, Marriguda, Sivannaguda, Sansthan Narayanpur and joins Chautuppal. The northern part reaches Chautuppal via Sangareddy, Narsapur, Thupran, Gajvel, Jagdevpur and Bhuvanagiri.
A final notification is to be issued from the center regarding the southern part. A consultancy firm has prepared three proposals for the route and submitted it to the Centre. It is reported that the Center will consider finalizing one of these by the end of the month. A consultancy firm has prepared three proposals for the route and submitted it to the Centre.

National highway number soon?
The Ministry of Transport and National Highways has so far assigned a National Highway temporary number only to the northern part of the Regional Ring Road. A number is to be assigned to the southern part. It is reported that the alignment issue will come to an end by the end of this month. The center will allocate a temporary national highway number for the southern part before issuing the official notification. It is reported that the file in this regard has already reached the final stage in the Ministry.
The state government will finalize the necessary proposal for the land acquisition process after issuing the gazette notification finalizing the alignment along with the number allotment. The land acquisition process has already been completed in the remaining areas except Bhuvanagiri and Chautuppal in the northern part. Earlier, the land acquisition was temporary as the officials were busy till recently in the by-election affairs of Munugodu Assembly Constituency. Officials are gearing up to take up that process soon. After the finalization of the alignment, the land acquisition process of the southern part will start. Overall, regional ring road affairs are moving smoothly.
