Andhra Pradesh: Centre to upgrade 10 state highways to national highways


Recommended Posts

In what could be a big boost for infrastructure development in the state, the Centre has agreed to convert around 10 major state highways in Andhra Pradesh into national highways. The Centre will spend close to Rs 8,000 crore for the upgrade. Further, majority of the proposed national highways would be converted into six lanes from the existing four and two lanes.

Taking the state government’s requests into consideration, the Union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari got the surveys conducted and gave his green signal for up-gradation.

The Centre directed the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to get the detailed project reports (DPRs) ready for taking up modernisation works. The Centre had already issued gazette notification by recognizing seven state highways as national highways and had given them new NH numbers.

According to NHAI sources, the Centre is willing to launch developmental works on the newly-recognized national highways soon after getting the DPRs ready. The conversion of highway stretch between Nagar Kurnool in Telangana and Nandyal in AP is going to be a big boon for the Rayalaseema region.


The Centre had named it as NH-167K and proposed to take up development of six-lane highway from Nagar Kurnool, Kollapur, Ramapur, Mandugala, Sivapuram, Karivena and Nandyal. A major bridge over river Krishna (Somasila-Siddeswaram) would also be part of the project which connects several flood hit-areas in Kurnool with plain areas.


The river-over-bridge would also provide access to many places in Kurnool district with neighbouring villages in Telangana. The 110-km long highway is expected to reduce the distance between Tirupati and Hyderabad by 80 km. While the 90-km stretch is part of Telangana, remaining 30-km stretch is located in AP.

But this road is definitely going to happen , as it's very strategic route and also joint lobbying by Ycp- TRS .

That's 220 km of new Greenfield road + existing highway  .  I don't think it will drastically reduce the time compared to  vijaywada route but it will give an alternative incase one becomes too congested
