Naidu urges Gadkari for flyover at Veleru crossing

Vijayawada, March 19 : Telugu Desam Party(TDP) National President and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday urged on Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to solve problems of local villages by constructing a flyover with underpass at Veleru crossing in the Krishna district. In a letter to Gadkari on Saturday, Naidu said the farmers, students and general public of over a half dozen villages were unable to access the National Highway (NH-16). To resolve this problem, the flyover with underpass should be constructed on NH-16 at Veleru crossing in Bapulapadu mandal. The TDP chief said at Veleru crossing, there was a temple on one side of NH-16 and a church on the other side. Also, a Zilla parishad high school was located close by. As a result, the people of Veleru, Remalle, Singannagudem, Mallavalli, Kotha Malavalli, Vattigudipadu and Ananthasagaram villages were finding it difficult to access NH-16. Naidu said that an underpass should be built at Veleru crossing so as to enable people of Bapulapadu and Agiripalli mandals in Krishna district to access NH-16 easily. The Hanuman Junction Journalists Welfare Society has made a representation for the same. The TDP chief told Gadkari that NH-16 has been a lifeline for coastal Andhra connecting two ends of the State and beyond. Traffic problem was eased to some extent after the on Road Transport Ministry constructed Hanuman Junction bypass road in Bapulapadu mandal. However, traffic problems continued at Veleru crossing due to lack of an underpass. Chandrababu Naidu wrote another letter to the on Minister for construction of another underpass at Munagacherla in Nandigama mandal. These issues required early attention considering the pressing demand from the local public. DP RKM
