Road development at Secunderabad Cantonment an uphill task

While more than 3.5 lakh people living in Secunderabad Cantonment are anxiously waiting the reopening of the five restricted highways, their traffic problems might not be solved right now. These stretches, which have been closed for decades, must first go through a significant refurbishment in order to accommodate the present amount of vehicles, which has seen a substantial increase over the years.

Residents complain that none of these five roads currently have adequate walkways, pedestrian crossings, street lights, or even traffic signals. Even worse, they are all about 20 to 30 feet wide and have antiquated technical layouts that are unsuitable for modern traffic situations. Out of the five, three roads Byam Road, Ammuguda Road, and Albian Road are categorised as 'A-I' defence land, while the other two Richardson Road and Protnee Road are class 'C' roads. On behalf of the people residing in Yapral, Balaji Nagar, and neighbouring colonies, a spokesperson from the resident welfare group of Kowkoor stated, "All these roads need to be brought up to modern standards shortly after they are reopened." Residents said that the SCB must emulate the adjoining GHMC, which has upgraded its roads with modern technology.

Fortunately, there is adequate acreage to begin road widening construction on each side of these highways. In fact, Pankaj Sethi, who was one of the people who played a significant part in pressing for the reopening of roads, stated that the region is also excellent for creating cycling lanes, along the major roadway, to encourage better health and fitness among the population. Residents emphasised the necessity for traffic management measures, such as upgrading junctions and installing modern traffic lights, in addition to these amenities.

According to retired teacher and Balaji Nagar resident N Jagannatha Reddy, during peak hours (between 8 am and 11 am and 3.30 pm and 9 pm), there must be enough traffic cops deployed here to handle key junctions and ensure that schoolchildren, employees, and businessmen can reach their destinations on time without any inconvenience. Members of A Green Sainikpuri, an NGO active in the region, emphasised the necessity of road safety regulations.
