20 agencies in race for 1st phase of regional ring road in Telangana | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: Aarvee Associates, Global Infra Solutions, Infrastructure Development Corporation (Karnataka), MSV International and STUP Consultants are among 20 agencies in the race to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for the northern part of the Rs 17,000 crore 340-km regional ring road (RRR) in Telangana.
National Highways Authority of India officials said technical and financial evaluation would take a month’s time after which a firm would be finalised to take up the preparation of DPR, including alignment, in consultation with the Telangana government.
In the first phase, the northern half of the project which extends up to 180 km would be developed at a cost of Rs 9,500 crore. It will pass through the urban clusters of Choutuppal, Bhuvanagiri, Pragnapur, temple town of Yadadri, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s assembly constituency of Gajwel, Toopran, Narsapur and Sangareddy.
NHAI general manager (technical) Navin Kumar Chaurasia confirmed to TOI that 20 firms have submitted their bids to prepare the DPR for the northern half of the 340 km access-controlled expressway. This semi-greenfield expressway will be developed into a four-lane project and later will be expanded to six lanes in tune with the projected growth of the vehicular traffic.
It is expected to be the country’s largest ring road that will connect a large number of districts in Telangana. The NHAI is taking up the project in two parts under the central government’s Bharatmala Pariyojana. The state government is bearing 50% of land acquisition cost and has already allocated Rs 750 crore for it.
The southern part of the RRR will be 160-km long and would be developed at a cost of Rs 6,480 crore. It will traverse through the urban clusters of Sangareddy, Shankarpally, Chevella, Amangal, Kandukur, Ibrahimpatnam and Choutuppal.
