Growing Demand to rename the longest flyover as YSR Flyover. 11.6 kms long flyover under final touchs, a week back, will be opened by AP CM Roshaiah today.

The Rs-600 crore expressway, which passes through various congested routes, would provide faster and hassle-free travel to new Shamshabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, which is 27 kilometers away from the city.

A Safe Fly Over with an excellent constuction technique, tested for safety and declared as safe.

The construction and safety of this Fly Over originating from Mehdipatnam and Landing after a flight of  11.6 km on National Highway to Bangalore, to further connect to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport about another 16 kms drive on National highway, is  with no major safety and constructional flaw.

With many questions raised in recent times on the way our infrastructural projects are built, and the safety concerns on the way the contractors and designers.

The metro project in new Delhi had many questions in the minds of people. And questions were raised due to structural failures.

Hope and pray this fly over will be very safe and will serve the City of Hyderabad to make life of the people better by providing the much needed relief from the traffic jams the city business junction Mehdipatnam and Ring Road faced over last couple of years.

The people are of the opinion that the fly over which is with no exit for the present, should have the exits to allow further relief to the commuters.

The Minister and the Govt deserves to the congratulated.  This day how can we not remember the Visionary Leader Y S Rajsheker Reddy whose dynamic personality was the force behind the construction of this flyover like many other infrastructural projects in A P.

People of  A P want  it named  as ” YSR Fly Over”  It would have been a good gesture to name this fly over by his name  instead of  PVN Fly over.  this Should be named as  YSR Fly Over.

Hope the Admin. gives it a thought. 

 The poeple of the state are keen to show respects to there leader YSR by naming this fly over in his name. Its renaming as YSR Fly over will win the govt. friends.
