The Telangana government has planned to build three new greenfield highways at ₹2,200 crore in the Khammam region. The construction of a four-lane access-controlled greenfield highway section of NH-365BG (Khammam - Devarapalle section) from Thallampadu to Somavaram village will be carried out at ₹772 crore for a distance of 33 km. This apart, four-lane access-controlled greenfield highways will also be constructed from Somavaram to Chintagudem villages (29 km) involving ₹637 crore investment and also from Chintagudem village to Thumburu village (42 km) costing ₹804 crore, all under the Khammam-Devarapalle section of NH-365BG. These highways are being constructed under the Green Highways (Plantation, Beautification and Maintenance) Policy. The implementing agency has to plant shrubs, which are natural sinks for air pollutants, along the highway.
The Union transport ministry has appointed authorities for the land acquisition for the development of the greenfield regional expressway on the northern side of Hyderabad connecting Sangareddy, Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri via Medak and Siddipet. The Centre has allocated ₹1,556 crore for the four-laning of two existing lanes from Suryapet to Khammam of NH-365BB (old SH-42). This 59-km-long stretch is crucial for the State as it connects Telangana to the ports in Andhra Pradesh.
