The Cyberabad Traffic Police on Saturday issued a traffic advisory to those headed towards the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Hyderabad, asking them to avoid the PVNR Expressway, the most used route to get to the airport. The advisory was issued in view of the reception ceremony of Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi's daughter on Sunday at Classic Convention Centre.
The police said that road work was also going along the highway on the same stretch, which has narrowed the carriage way. Those headed to areas along the Kurnool-Bangalore Highway were also asked to take the Outer Ring Road (ORR) as "thousands of public and vehicles are expected at the above venue on December 30 from 6 pm to 1 am," the police advisory stated.
"General Public going to airport are advised to take alternative roads to RGIA (i.e., ORR, Aramghar, towards Mailardevpally PS (right turn) to Laxmiguda to Jalpally to Airport road (or) from Chandrayangutta crossroad. Please avoid PVNR Expressway to Airport or Kurnool-Bengaluru road via Shamshabad. Please use ORR by entering either at TSPA junction, Rajendranagar (Himayatsagar entry) or Gachibowli to go to Airport. Traffic coming from the airport road or Bengaluru-Kurnool Highway towards Hyderabad city is advised to use ORR or service road at Thondupally," the advisory said.
It also added that heavy transport vehicles going from Aramghar crossroad to Bengaluru highway will have to take a left turn at Pillar number 218 of the PVNR Expressway and go vira NIRD, Himayathsagar and take the ORR entry near Chennamma Hotel.
"All the commuters are advised to follow the above traffic advisory for better traffic movement and prevent traffic congestion and make their travel plans accordingly in the above alternative routes, two hours early. This advisory is issued for the benefit of general public for their convenient travel, as a large number of vehicles may move towards the function venue," the advisory, issued by the Cyberabad Traffic Police DCP, added.
