The expressway is designed for speeds up to 100 km/h.[1] A large part, 124 km (covering urban nodes viz., Hi- Tech city, Nanakramguda Financial District, Hyderabad International Airport, IKP Knowledge park, Hardware Park, Telangana State Police Academy, Singapore Financial District, and Games village) of the 158-km was opened by December 2012.[2]

Traffic studies[edit]

The traffic studies on NH 44 and NH 65 concluded that a 4/6 lane road is due. The traffic movement on the existing inner ring road proved that the existing 4-lane road was inadequate. Due to the anticipated growth in the region and the development of proposed satellite townships around the ring road and beyond, an 8-lane carriageway was planned with a design life of 20 years.

The conclusion was to develop a highway with access control provides highway grade separations or interchanges for all intersecting highways. Once it had been decided to develop the route as an expressway, all intersecting highways should be terminated, rerouted or provided with a grade separation. The proposed corridor was access-controlled and limited access was to be provided at National Highway/SHI Major road crossings. A 2-lane service roads designed to carry two-way traffic, were proposed on both sides of the corridor. Low level underpasses were to be provided for connecting both the service roads at every 1–2 km, where the terrain permits.

Land Acquisition[edit]

The First Phase land required was 750 acres (3.0 km2), out of which the private land acquired was 500 acres (2.0 km2). The land required for Second Phase is about 5,500 acres (22 km2), of which the Govt. land is about 1,000 acres (4.0 km2). The estimated Cost of Acquisition is ₹250 Crores.

Criticism[edit]

Much before the outer ring road (ORR) became a ring road, it underwent several changes in the road alignments. Influential farmers and realtors changed the alignment to best serve their interests at the cost of small and marginal farmers.[28]

The High Court of Andhra Pradesh passed a landmark judgement on 9 September 2010 in which the land acquisition proceedings were quashed for various reasons.[29]
