Dumbbell-Shaped Interchanges on Hyderabad Regional Ring Road

Dumbbell-Shaped Interchanges on Hyderabad Regional Ring Road

The Hyderabad Regional Ring Road (RRR) project is undergoing significant changes, including the implementation of a unique design element and increased land acquisition. This article delves into the details of these modifications and the project’s overall progress.

Dumbbell-Shaped Interchanges for Improved Traffic Flow

A key aspect of the RRR project is the construction of “dumbbell-shaped” interchanges at the points where the north and south sections of the road converge. These innovative junctions are designed to facilitate smoother traffic flow between the two segments, reducing congestion and travel time.

Additional Land Acquisition to Accommodate the Expansion

The incorporation of the dumbbell-shaped interchanges necessitates the acquisition of more land than initially planned. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has estimated the additional land requirement and is working with the state government to finalize the acquisition process.

Funding Secured for the Northern Section

The 158.65 km long RRR will be constructed in two parts, north and south of the existing Hyderabad Outer Ring Road (ORR). While there were initial delays due to funding concerns, the northern section of the project has now secured financial backing under a new government scheme. This ensures progress can proceed without further delays.

Prioritization by the State Government

The Telangana state government has prioritized the completion of the RRR project, considering its potential to enhance traffic flow and connectivity within the region. With central government funding confirmed, the state has expedited the process of obtaining necessary permissions and acquiring land.

Project Impact and Timeline

The total land acquisition for the RRR project has increased to 1,879.05 hectares, with the additional requirement being 71.23 hectares. The road will traverse through the districts of Sangareddy, Medak, Siddipet, and Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri. While a specific timeline for completion has not been disclosed, the project is expected to progress steadily with the recent developments.
