Hyderabad: Several areas of Jalpally Municipality are all set to undergo a major makeover in the coming days with a host of development work being grounded and expected to be completed within a few months.
Apart from works related to the widening and restoration of roads, sewer lines and beautification are also underway in the municipality. In a coordinated effort, various government agencies, including Telangana Urban Finance Infrastructure Development Corporation, Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply & Sewerage Board (HMWSSB), have allocated necessary funds for a series of works. .
Among the ongoing works, the Pahadishareef road in Mamidpally will soon be developed at a cost of Rs 3.10 crore. “Road widening will be resumed on the section and we will also be laying cement roads soon. Once the basic works are completed, construction of the median of the road and provision of upgraded street lighting will be resumed on the road section,” said Jalpally Municipality Commissioner G Praveen Kumar.
The municipality will also undertake the beautification of the popular Lake Jalpally here and some major plans have been drawn up for this purpose. The various components of the project at the water level include the development of a rockery, the provision of nautical facilities as well as a footbridge along the peripheries.
“Little works like putting up iron trellis, installing benches and fixing lampposts have been done. Now we are planning to have a garden and lighting around the tank in a planned way. Facilities Adequate spaces must also be provided for the parking of vehicles for the benefit of visitors,” he said.
Apart from this, the city authorities will restore the road from Osmania Hotel to Venkatapur which connects several settlements of Shaheehnagar to the Chandrayangutta – RGI Airport road. “Several other works such as the development of nalas, drinking water supply pipes and sanitation pipes are to be resumed”, revealed the commissioner.
For a long time, Jalpally, located on the outskirts of the city, remained neglected as residents faced several civic issues. However, in the past two years, development work has been taken over by the government. Authorities have also identified a plot of land in Mamidpally where construction of a school and hospital is to be undertaken. A separate budget should be allocated for this purpose by the government, officials said.
