For instance, the space between Generals Highway, Yapral to Lakadwala Colony, Alwal, is barely 1.7 km. A drive on the stretch normally doesn’t take greater than 5 minutes. Nevertheless, as a consequence of closure of highway by the native army authorities, the drive by an alternate route through Sree Ayyappa Devasthanam, Ayyappa temple compound, Cariappa Highway, Bolarum now takes nearly half-hour (for 7.6km) amid heavy site visitors.
The Ammuguda-Lakdawala Gate highway was the usual route taken by folks from Sainikpuri or Vayupuri who needed to go to Bolarum, St Anns Faculty, Nagpur freeway, Loyola Academy, amongst different locations. “The straight route from Ammuguda to Lakdawala is 2.5km as per Google maps. As we speak, a wall has been erected throughout this public highway at Ammuguda as a consequence of which the site visitors now has to go through Lothkunta, Alwal, a distance of 5.3 km to Lakdawala,” mentioned CS Chandrasekhar, secretary of Federation of North-Jap Colonies of Secunderabad.
Different stretches which have been restricted embrace the Hislop highway, Yapral, to Bison Environmental Park; Kowkoor to Cavalry Barracks Defence Officer’s Colony, Bolarum; RK Puram flyover underpass to Asha Officers Colony; to call just a few. Residents rue that as a consequence of closure of those key roads, Yapral has misplaced direct connectivity to the remainder of town.
“Because the highway from Lakdawala in the direction of Yapral, Risala Bazar are closed, these travelling from Alwal, Lothakunta, Bolarum must take a for much longer route. It is extremely inconvenient as site visitors on different alternate routes is way larger,” mentioned Vinod Anand, a resident of Yapral.
