    State working on road link between Amaravati and Rayalaseema

    The State government is working on ensuring better road connectivity from Rayalaseema districts to the new capital Amaravati via Nallamalla forests. Under this initiative, the Roads and Buildings Department is proposing to construct a couple of tunnels in the Nallamalla forests, especially on the Anantapur to Amaravati route.

    The existing route connecting Anantapur to Amaravati covers a distance of 472 km and plans were being made to cut short the distance by 86 km by avoiding curves and long detours. However, the new route passes through a 26 km-stretch in the Nallamalla forests and there was a need to construct a couple of tunnels to ensure smooth flow of traffic.

    Once developed, the new route would cut short the distance and travel time from Anantapur to Amaravati by almost five hours. All these plans were presented to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu during a review meeting here on Tuesday.

    Mr. Naidu instructed the authorities to synchronise the Kadapa and Kurnool routes with the Anantapur- Amaravati route.

    “All these plans are preliminary and the Chief Minister has suggested a few changes. We will have to prepare a final plan accordingly,” a senior official from the Roads and Buildings Department said.

    800 km of roads

    In all, 800 km of roads have to be constructed and emphasis was being laid on developing a four-lane road covering Krishnapatnam to Ravuru, Kadapa, Chitvel, Tadipatri, Gutti and connecting it to Bengaluru highway.

    Amaravati-Anantapur National Expressway: Country’s longest expressway without turns or curves

    The alignment and design of the access-controlled Amaravati-Anantapur highway which has been declared as a National Expressway by the Centre were finalised today. The proposed 394 kms long expressway would also be the longest in the country. Andhra Pradesh Road and Buildings Department officials said that the Expressway would be four-lane in 185.400 kms and six-lane in 208.194 kms. Two feeder highways connecting Kurnool and Kadapa towns would also be part of the expressway making it nearly 600 kms long.

    The expressway will not only reduce the distance between the two places from approximately 500 kms to 394 kms but also reduces travelling time from nine hours to just under five hours. The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs 29,000 cores, including two feeder highways connecting Kurnool and Kadapa towns. AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has requested R&B officials of State and the Centre to consider constructing the expressway without too many turns and curves, and keep it straight as far as possible. The expressway would have straight alignment for long stretches allowing speeds of up to 130-140 kms per hour safely.

    The access-controlled expressway would start at the outer ring road of Amaravati City and go through Guntur, Prakasham, Kurnool, YSR KAdapa, and terminate at the Anantapur-Bengaluru Bypass road on the outskirts of Anantapur. Separate highways radiating towards Chennai to the south and Hyderabad to the north, and feeder roads connecting Kadapa and Kurnool towns to expressway would be laid. The expressway would bring down the distance between Anantapur and Amaravati from 472 kms to 371 kms; Kadapa and Amaravati from 370 kms to 290 kms; and Kurnool to Amaravati from 320 kms to 280 kms.

    Officials said that 26,793 acres of land has been acquired for the project. Of this, 9,324 hectares was forest land that has been de-notified.

    After the highway was declared a National Express, CM Naidu called a meeting today at Vijayawada to finalise the alignment of the Amaravati-Anantapur Expressway. The feeder road for Kurnool town would take off from Nannur on the NH-40 and connect to the Expressway at Bagyangar. The Kurnool Feeder Road is 125 kms long. The feeder road for Kadapa town which would be 110 kms long would take from Kummarakottalu on NH 40 and connect to the Expressway at Edavali via NH 544D. The total length of the Expressway including the Kurnool and Kadapa feeder highway would be around 600 kms long.

    The AP Government has also proposed to the Union Railway Ministry a railway line parallel to the expressway from Anantapur to Amaravati and further north towards Vizag and Kolkatta.

    In another major decision, the AP Government also approved the four-laning of the Vijayawada-Machilipatnam state highway at a cost of Rs 741 crores.
