Secunderabad: Two major stretches, Moula Ali Hospital to NCL Apartments, and Indira Gandhi Statue to Telugu Tally Flyover, that were laid using soil stabilisation technology (also known as German technology), one and half years ago, are still strong and relatively undamaged.
The state government, has convened a special meeting with all the agencies in the city to discuss about using of technology for the city roads, for longer life
Samples of these two roads were collected recently and tested at Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), NIT’s Civil Engineering wing in Warangal and Indian Institute of Toxicology Research (IITR).
“During Ganesh immersion held in September, hundreds of huge cranes used to carry Ganesha idols weighing about 2 to 10 metric tonnes on the stretch between Telugu Talli Floyover and NTR Garden. Keeping this in mind, we invited experts from Central Road Research Institute, NIT and IITR to assess the road’s status,” said Srinivas, CEO of Vishwa Samudra Engineering (VSE) which uses this technology.
Accordingly, they have visited both roads and gave a report on stability, durability and damage. They conducted three tests. The lab reports have been revealed that both Moula Ali and Telugu Talli stretch are strong, he said.
