PVN Expressway to be ready only by May ’09

TIMES NEWS NETWORK 24th July 2008, Hyderabad edition Hyderabad: It will be a longer wait for air passengers waiting for the completion of P V Narsimha Rao Expressway to ease their travel woes. The complete commissioning of P V Narasimha Rao Expressway has been postponed once again, this time till May 2009. The construction of the 11.5 km P V Narasimha Rao Expressway from Sarojini Devi Hospital at Mehdipatnam to Aramgarh crossroads started in August 2006.

The making of PVNR Express Highway

Here is an update of the PV Narasimha Rao Express highway that is under construction in hyderabad. This connects Sarojini Devi Hospital with Aramgarh Cross road with a total of 11.6 KM. Once completed this could be the longest elevated highway in india. There seems to be around 320(approx, I found pillar number 290 before Aramgarh cross raod and a rough estimate of around 20 to 30 pillars further) Pillars that will be erected in total.

Those junk outdated old volvo buses with new look and feel, create hell lot of pollution, You feel like hell if you are lucky enough to go behind of a GMR bus on your bike. Well, I checked with RTA, these people not bothered about GMR organized proliferation of pollution as a free gift to the new metro city of india.
