In a boost to development of Greater Warangal, the Telangana government on Wednesday approved a master plan for the Kakatiya Urban Development Authority (KUDA). The plan has been readied for 2020-2041. Since the draft was prepared after consultations with stakeholders, municipal administration department has approved it.
Apart from this, 15-km mono rail connectivity will also be taken up, and works for 29 km of total 68km outer ring road (ORR) will be launched by June this year. The decisions were taken at a meeting headed by municipal administration minister, KT Rama Rao, along with ministers belonging to erstwhile Warangal district, Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Satyavathi Rathod, with officials on Wednesday.
KTR said the Centre has in-principle agreed to develop Warangal airport at Mamnoor, on the outskirts of the city. Since Warangal is the second-biggest city in Telangana, KTR said all developmental works taken up under Smart City and heritage conservation works should be completed at the earliest.
“All the promises made by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao during his visit to Warangal a few years should be completed on war-footing basis, especially 2BHK houses,” he said. Officials informed that while the government had sanctioned 3,900 houses, 900 houses were completed and ready for inauguration, and 2,200 are under construction. Remaining 800 were not taken up due to local issues, officials informed the minister.
“To make the city clean and improve sanitation works, 1,000 public toilets will be constructed, and four dumping yards will be developed for disposal of waste. Currently there is only one dumping yard at Madikonda on the outskirts of the city,” KTR said.
He asked the officials to develop Kaloji Kala Kshetram, Eka Shila Park development, road widening, and junction improvement in the city. Another meeting on Warangal city development will be held on March 16, the minister said.
