I think it is the correct design, as the ORR was never intended to go upto Gachibowli. What they provided was an exit to Gachibowli. We are all confused because the exit road was constructed 2 years prior to the main ORR stretch towards Patancheru.
+1 on that Venu Saab. I have seen many people getting confused with this kind of a layout. They move a few meters ahead and then realize and then do the unthinkable. Take a U-Turn right in the middle of the ORR or use Reverse Gear, both these are dangerous on the ORR.

As per the original layout plan of ORR, the Gachibowli Exit never existed. The Layout was modified later in order to accommodate Gachibowli Exit. As per the Original Plan, a person willing to proceed towards Gachibowli had to take the Narsingi-Patencheru Route and then enter Gachibowli via Financial District. This was as per the original layout plan of ORR.

When returning from Gachibowli, if one needs to go straight towards Airport, they need to take the left arm of the ORR. If they wish to go towards Patencheru, they need to take the center arm of the ORR.

The boards are already in place but who reads the boards. That's where they miss out the exit and then try to reverse till that exit and then proceed. It's a MISHAP waiting to happen.

This photo was posted today on the FaceBook Wall of Hyderabad Traffic Police


The vehicle was recorded at 145kmph at Necklace Road where the speed limit is 60kmph!

How is it possible for that kind of speeds at 12:24pm?

The said picture is of 01-Aug-2011 though posted yesterday.

The speed limit is 50kmph and not 60kmph.

HTP had that day set up the speed gun to record violations above 60kmph hence the figure of 61kmph.

This is to keep some margin for error and also to weed out minor violations.

It is possible to attain such monstrous speeds if one can find the stretch empty which does happen during day time.

However, anyone driving at 145 kmph is risking the lives of so many people (pedestrians, other road users, etc.) apart from his/her own and should be prosecuted for attempt to murder.

Tough question to answer, as generally not many may live in those areas.

I don't think the ORR would have been completed, as otherwise the newspapers would have tom-tommed about it.

I do know that there is a crossroad from Medchal that meets the Shamirpet road, and yet another crossroad from Tumkunta that joins the Warangal highway. I am not sure from there onwards.

I took a look at that thread and gajadonga was talking of the ORR from Gachibowli to RFC, and not from Kompally to RFC.

No, the ORR stretches between (1) Mumbai Highway & Medak Highway, (2) Medak Highway & Nagpur Highway, (3) Nagpur Highway & Karimnagar Highway, (4) Karimnagar Highway & Warangal Highway, (5) Warangal Highway & Vijayawada Highway are certainly not complete or at least not open to public.

True, there will be enough media hype when ever each of these stretches are completed.

No Ranjit, Gajadonga has posted something else. I quote the post below in its entirety :

Ramoji film city to Choutupal four lane is complete.
From Chotupal lot of deviations and road surface is average.Lot of
gear changes, accelerations and sudden stops, overtaking is pain and time consuming.I started in the afternoon traffic was moderate.
From Nadigama it is tolled four lane to Vijayawada.
Return via Guntur-Piduguralla-Dachepalli-Macherla-Sagar-Hyderabad.
Road from Dachepalli-Macherla is average occasional potholes but drivable.
I saw all the volvos from Hyderabad taking this Sagar-Macherla-Dachepalli route.
There is another route from Piduguralla-Karempudi-Macherla-Sagar but the on en-quiring the locals in Piduguralla dissuaded me to take this route.
Gajadonga is talking of the other side of the ORR. Choutupal is on Vijayawada Highway and you are mistaking it with Uppal.

The stretches that are completed and open to public are (1) Vijayawada Highway & Nagarjuna Sagar Highway, (2) Nagarjuna Sagar Highway & Srisailam Highway, (3) Srisailam Highway & Bangalore Highway, (4) Bangalore Highway & Mumbai Highway.

OT : Do not forget to carry caps for RFC as the sun is merciless and gives a headache.

Since you will start early around 8am, use the Sainikpuri - Moula Ali - Tarnaka - Uppal - L B Nagar - RFC route.

Thanks a lot for the replies.But just a question,choutuppal is on VJA highway as mentioned but RFC too is on the VJA highway right?

From what I gathered from the post is that he took the ORR from Gachibowli all the way to NH9 before Chotuppal.At NH9,I think what he says is that the 4 laning of the NH9 is complete till Chotuppal.Isnt that what he says?or am I missing something?

Also doesnt the ring road from Gachibowli intersect the NH7(Nagpur h/w) somewhere after Kompally and continue onwards intersecting the Karimnagar highway,warrangal highway,vja highway(nh9)(after RFC)?

Thanks for the tip on the caps.shall definitely keep them in mind.Problem is I need to go by my daughter's school at kompally(Abhaya) and then onwards to RFC.

OT does anybody know if cabs do a drop and pick from RFC?Something like drop people off at RFC gate and wait till people come back and drop them back home?

Right

Yes, you are right. But your question was for the part of ORR that is from Kompally to RFC, which is broadly speaking from 12 o'clock position to 3 o'clock position (with Hyd city at the centre of the clock), whereas the route he took was from 6 o'clock position to 3 o'clock position.

Also doesnt the ring road from Gachibowli intersect the NH7(Nagpur h/w) somewhere after Kompally and continue onwards intersecting the Karimnagar highway,warrangal highway,vja highway(nh9)(after RFC)?

Yes it does, but those stretches are not complete yet, and that is why drag races are being held on those partial bits that have been completed.

The ORR is split into 4 sections.
Section 1. Shamshabad - APPA, Rajendra Nagar
Section 2. APPA, Rajendra Nagar - Patencheru
Section 3. Patencheru - Pedda Amberpet
Section 4. Pedda Amberpet - Shamshabad

The ORR goes via these areas: Shamshabad - APPA Junction - Narsingi - Kollur - Patencheru - Bollarum - Dundigul - Kandlakoor - Munirabad - Upparapalli - Dharmaram - Cheral - Pocharam - Koramal - Pasamamla Village - Pedda Amberpet - Koheda - Bongulur - Mankhal - Raikunta - Shamshabad

The Main Junctions are as follows: Shamshabad - Rajendra Nagar - Narsingi - Patencheru Muttangi - Dundigul Junction - Kandlakoor Junction - Upparapalli (Shameerpet Junction) - Cheral Junction - Ghatkesar Junction - Pedda Amberpet Junction - Bongulur Junction - Mankhal Junction


The strech from Muttangi till Pedda Amberpet is not yet fully functional. The construction work is on but isn't 100% completed as of now. Even in case you proceed on that road, there are better chances that you might have to take a U-Turn or detours as not all points are properly connected.

ChoutUppal is way ahead on the VJA Highway, where as RFC lies miles before ChoutUppal.

He took the Gachibowli - APPA Junction - Shamshabad - Pedda Amberpet strech of the ORR, which is very much functional, where as you plan to take the other way round. As per my listing above, he took the Section 1 & Section 4 for his journey, where as you need to take the Section 3, which is not yet complete.

Yes, ORR does intersect the existing Highways at all major junctions.

Better, book a cab from any of the travels. They have a minimum of 80 Kms or 8 hrs thing. You can avail this scheme. Better call up a couple of Cab Operators and ask them if they provide service from RFC. They should provide as I have seen many Cab's exiting out of RFC.

Thanks for the detailed info.I did end up availing the cab service.Called up the local travels guy within the colony and got a deal for 1100rs for the 8hr/80km thing.Found it reasonable.The radio cabs were not willing to wait and wanted to do a fresh booking,which was dicey as there was no surety that they would have a cab in the vicinity.Thanks once again.

Here is the image of ORR marked with green, blue & purple shading.

Please excuse my poor skills in using "Paint", the programme used by me to render colours to the image.

The green part of ORR are functional. Note : for both ways traffic.

The blue part is nearing completion and will soon be functional (read as 2012).

The purple part is also under construction and should be functional in slightly more than a year (read as 2013).
