The ramps for the expressway are yet to be built.  It means, once you get on to the flyover, there is no getting off till the end.   Also access is restricted to four wheelers only.  Trucks and autos are not allowed.

The maximum speed permissible on the road is 60kmph.  Are you kidding me?

    4-wheelers only, no autos: wait for 6 months!

    Speed limit 60: there is a flyover in Mumbai we call the JJ flyover; the speed limit there is 40 kmph! 🙂

    Hyderabad is undergoing a rapid transformation. Brand new airport and now this….good to know.

    Cheers,

      I hope the autos would never be let on to the flyover. They are a real menace.

      So, there is a competition to this one in Mumbai when it comes to speed 😀

      Oh ya, also a 160km outer ring road is also coming up, its also a beauty. Am excited.

    Hey, when did you change your layout? looks gorgeous! Classy 🙂

    I’m all too interested in these kind of posts and blogs which chronicles the infrastructural upliftment of India. Hyderabad usre is a place other Indian cities should look up to if they want to become global cities. I appreciate the administrators and planners for this peach of a flyover.

    Well Liju, 60km/hr is good enough speed on urban settings even if it is an access-controlled flyover. 😉

      I played around with lots of templates before settling for this one. Glad you liked it.

      I get all my updates from Skyscrapercity. I see you are a member there too. I hardly contribute anything, but read up all the posts. That site rocks.

      Fortunately post Chandrababu naidu, YSR did keep up the focus on infrastructure. Hope it continues in future too.
