The centre has agreed to finance the Rs 19,000 cr new Andhra capital Outer ring road around the Vijayawada -Guntur-Tenali-Mangalagiri area (VGTM). It however asked the state government to fund the land acquisition costs itself. The land acquisition is likely to cost around Rs 4000 cr.
The AP government has prepared a draft map for the outer ring road (ORR) in the capital region covering Vijayawada, Tenali and Guntur. Officials have proposed two road bridges across the river Krishna, which will come up in the upstream and downstream of Prakasam barrage respectively, in Vijayawada. According to the proposed alignment map, the bridge in the upstream of Prakasam barrage will connect Guntur and Krishna districts between Amaravati and Mogulluru. The bridge in the downstream will cross river Krishna near Bhatlapenumarru in Krishna district and again join at Jampani in Guntur district.
Sources said the 180-km-long ORR will take off from NH-5 near Hanuman Junction and go through Ramapuram, Tummalapalli, Nandivada, Gudivada, Pamarru and Bhatlapenumarru before crossing the river. The ORR will then pass through Jampani, Chinaravuru (outskirts of Tenali), Veliveru and Vejendla before entering Guntur city. From Guntur city, it will pass through Perecherla, Siripuram, Lingamguntla, Pedakurapadu, Tammavaram and reach Amaravati where it will cross the Krishna to land on the other end in Krishna district at Mogullur.
From Mogullur, it will pass through Kanchikacherla, Alluru, outskirts of Mylavaram, outskirts of Nuzvid and Meerjapuram before touching Hanuman Junction.
