While BRS was ruling Telangana, the Ministry of Urban Development focused more on building flyovers across Hyderabad to ease the traffic problems. Under the SRDP plan, many flyovers were built in the city. After Congress came into power, the focus seems to have shifted to underground tunnels.

Recently, the government of Telangana proposed multiple underground tunnels to solve the traffic issues in the city. The proposed underground routes are:

1. ITC Kohenur to JNTU Junction (Via Mindspace)
2. ITC Kohenur to Wipro Junction (via Khajaguda and Nanakramguda)
3. ITC Kohenur to Banjara Hills Road No. 10 (Via Jubilee Hills Raod No. 45)
4. GVK One Mall to Nanalnagar (via Masab Tank)
5. Banjara Hills Road No. 3 to Jubilee Hills Road No. 45 (via KBR Park)

Meanwhile, environmentalists are opposing the idea of constructing an underground tunnel through KBR Park, citing ecological losses. A budget of Rs. 3000 crore has been proposed for this tunnel. Meanwhile, it has to be seen if the government addresses the environmentalists’ concerns and changes the route or sticks to the original plan.
