The hyderabad Metropolitan Development Board (HMDA) was given approval by the central government on Friday, march 1, to build two skyways, or elevated corridors, in the secunderabad Cantonment region.
In an order on Friday, the indian government allegedly gave the state government nearly 175 acres of land for the development of two skyways in the secunderabad cantonment limits: paradise Circle to Suchitra Junction on National Highway-44 and Gymkhana Grounds to Hakimpet air Force Station on State Highway-1 (connecting the ORR near Shamirpet).

Since taking office, the telangana Congress administration has been able to convince the central government to approve two projects for Hyderabad. The first is the building of the Mehdipatnam Skywalk.
The estimated value of the land where the skyways are planned is Rs 1,700 crore.
The secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) approved the transfer of 33 acres to the telangana government in august 2023 so that roads from Gymkhana Grounds to Hakimpet air Force Station and from paradise Circle to Suchitra Circle may be widened. But at that time, the request to transfer this land was denied.

The Centre delayed the handover of 157 acres of property owned by various defense units, despite officials' claims that only then could the widening projects, as well as the planned skyways and Metro routes, be completed.

It is anticipated that road expansion will reduce traffic in the bowenpally and Tirumalagiri regions. To avoid interfering with aircraft operations, the Defence Ministry has approved the building of subterranean tunnels, or underpasses, close to the Begumpet airport in hyderabad and the Hakimpet air Force Station along the secunderabad skyways, according to a report by TOI.
