To cater to increasing rail traffic in Secunderabad and Nampally Railway Stations, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today opined that two more railway junctions will ease the traffic problem by constructing them at Charlapally and Nagulapally areas abutting Outer Ring Road.
When South Central Railway General Manager Ravindra Guptha called on the Chief Minister, KCR made this proposal and offered to provide all cooperation and support for the new railway junctions. The Chief Minister also discussed other developmental works pertaining to exchange of land, manning railway level crossings and others. KCR said Cherlapally will connect Delhi and Chennai corridor and Nagulapally will do so Mumbai and will help the massively growing rail traffic.
Guptha suggested to the Chief Minister to allot some land in addition to railway land available at Cherlapally area. KCR said the government will show alternative land if the railways give 15 acres for poor housing scheme, construction of schools and offices. KCR also sought protection to people at 150 unmanned level crossings in the State and construct railway under-bridge at Tukaram Gate near Secunderabad. To this, the Guptha said he would send the proposals to the Railway Board and look into other issues positively. (NSS)
