A Massive Traffic Solution
With this flyover now available, massive traffic congestions at the two busy spots of Chandrayangutta -- Midhani Junction and Owaisi Hospital Junction are set to be resolved soon. The flyover distinctively navigates the traffic going towards Owaisi Hospital Junction coming from Midhani Junction, which finishes approximately 300 meters away from the Hospital junction.
"Besides being useful for locals, the flyover will be of great use to Central government employees working in DRDO, DRDL, ASL," a GHMC engineer monitoring the project was quoted as saying by Telangana Today.
Furthermore, under this flyover, saplings have been planted and vertical gardens have also been installed on its pillars as well.
