Telangana to have a Regional Ring Road – connecting towns –  similar to the ‘Kuala Lumpur to Singapore Access Controlled Expressway’

The announcement of Regional Ring Road (RRR) has brought much-needed good news to the state. The project, which has been in the planning stage for nearly ten years, is all set to take off. This move has been brought in place as the Telangana government is implementing policies and schemes that will build the ‘Next Gachibowli.’ The Union Minister for Road Transport and National Highways, Nitin Gadkari announced that the RRR will be developed towards the ‘Hyderabad-Vijayawada’ highway area. He further added that the government will sanction Rs. 5,500 crores for land acquisition. The project, helmed by NHAI – National Highways Authority of India, will cost Rs. 17,000 crores to complete.

Named as Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) originally and later changed to RRR, it is expected to be around 300 kilometres long and 60 metres wide. At an inaugural event, the Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development of Telangana, KT Rama Rao, spoke about this and is of the opinion that RRR would be as rewarding and useful as the Outer Ring Road (ORR). He also believes that it will create employment opportunities for the local youth.

This project corridor is divided into four quadrants namely the North East Quadrant from Tupran (NH44) to Malkapur (NH65) with a length of 93.65 kilometres, South East Quadrant from Malkapur (NH65) to Shadnagar (NH44) with a length of 78.15 kilometres, South West Quadrant from Shadnagar (NH44) to Koulampet (NH65) at 68.15 kilometres, and North West Quadrant from Koulampet (NH65) to Tupran (NH44) at 50 kilometres. The quadrants will further connect Bibinagar, Bommalaramam, Chevella, Daulatabad, Dunti, Eddumailaramam, Farooq Nagar, Gunlaguda, Isamilapet, Ibrahimpatnam, Kothiyal, Kothur, Malkapur, Mulugu, Narsapur, Rachlur, Shadnagar, Shankarapally, Shahbad, Toopran, Tadlapalle, Warangal and other areas. It also passes through 125 villages along its alignment.

Road to development – RRR’s key features are as follows:

The state government is planning to establish major projects around the RRR.

Industrial clusters will be formed.

Satellite townships will be increased. 

IT and logistics parks will be established. 

Pharma companies will start their labs and factories. 

People living on the city outskirts will no longer have to travel to Hyderabad to use the highways.

The all-encompassing developments around ‘Hyderabad-Vijayawada’ are expected to bring economic growth and a boom to the area’s real estate market.
