Hyderabad city has been witnessing construction work on several flyovers or road-under bridges. Some of them have been going for the last several years, some even since formation of Telangana in 2014. For example, the flyover work that is going near RTC X Roads has become a big menace to people in the area.
We are glad that Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar has inspected a couple of flyovers in the city this week and told the officials that they should be completed soon. Of course, some flyovers or bridges have been completed on time too. There seems to be different yardsticks for different areas – rich areas get preference while the poorer ones are neglected.
This approach should change. Hyderabad does mean only some posh areas like Jubilee Hills and Hi-Tech City region, but also all other parts including those which are neglected over the years. Shame that the elected representatives of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation from these pockets too are not bothered about this neglect. They should insist on a timeframe to complete the work.
