Nitin Gadkari – Union Minister:
Rehabilitation and Upgradation to 2/4 lane with paved shoulders on NH-167K including the approaches of Iconic Bridge across river Krishna in Nagarkurnool district in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh has been approved at the total cost of Rs. 436.91 Crore on EPC mode.
The NH-167K would reduce the distance between Hyderabad/Kalwakurthy & important destinations like Tirupati, Nandyala/ Chennai by about 80 Km as the traffic presently following NH-44 will take to NH-167K after completion.
Nandyala is an important trading center for agricultural products & forest products as it is nearer to Nallamala Forest.
The sanctioned Iconic Bridge at Kollapur would be the Gateway for both the States and help promote tourism.
