In 2013, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) will be taking up three Road Under Bridges (RUBs) and one Road Over Bridge (RoB) crossing over the railway tracks in different parts of the city. The projects costing about Rs 75 crore are already in different stages of progress. The RUB at the revised site of Uttamnagar instead of Safilguda will be constructed at a cost of Rs30 crore.
The Railways had given its consent to close the Safilguda gate. But, the railways has put a rider stating that in future if there is a demand for another RUB at Safilguda, the municipal corporation should take it up and also bear the entire cost. The Kandikal ROB is to be built at a cost of Rs.25 crore .
The work is slated to be completed in a year. The proposed Uppuguda ROB has been changed to RUB as per the topography and it is estimated to cost Rs.10 crore. The railways permission is awaited for approving the drawings for constructing a four lane RUB at Tukaram Gate.

Three major flyovers on the planning board are Tolichowki flyover (Rs 50 crore), Ameerpet flyover (Rs 75 crore) and Balanagar-Narsapur junction flyover (Rs 90 crore).
