Brief Scope: Proposals are hereby invited from eligible Consultants for preparation of Detailed Project Report of consultancy services for preparation of DPR for development of Northern portion of Hyderabad Regional Ring Road Expressway under Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-I in the State of Telangana.
The following route map is indicative and dated. The expressway’s alignment will be roughly 30 km away from the operational 158 km Outer Ring Road (ORR).
This greenfield expressway will be access-controlled with 4 lanes to begin with, but we’ll have to wait and see what the DPR recommends.
Northern half with a length of approx. 182 km is estimated to cost Rs. 9,500-crore and will connect Sangareddy, Narsapur, Toopran, Gajwel, Yadadri, Pragnapur, Bhongir and Choutuppal.
Southern half with a length of approx. 164 km is estimated to cost Rs. 6,480-crore and will connect Choutuppal, Ibrahimpatnam, Kandukur, Amangal, Chevella, Shankarpally and Sangareddy.
The Telangana government’s Socio-Economic Outlook for 2021, released in March 2021, states the expressway “will provide the much needed road link for farmers to sell their produce, and help small, micro and medium enterprises to set up cold chains, agro-processing units, IT parks, and new townships.“
