The Government of Andhra Pradesh has proposed two elevated expressways within the city of Hyderabad, India.

P.V. Narasimha Rao Elevated Expressway

This is a 31.6 km Elevated Expressway connecting the Hyderabad International Airport with the city at Mehdipatnam. The PVNR Expressway has been opened for traffic at the end points on 2009-10-19. However, the construction of six midway entry/exit ramps is yet to be completed.

The expressway starts at Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital in Mehdipatnam and passes through Rethibowli, Laxmi Nagar, Attapur, Hyderguda, Upperpally, Rajendra Nagar and connects to the National Highway 7 (NH-7) near Aramghar junction.

The maximum speed limit on the P.V. Expressway is 60 km/hour for light motor vehicles. As the carriageway narrows down from two lanes (7.5 meters width) to one-and-half lane (6 meters width) due to sharp-turns at Laxminagar, Upparpally and Shivrampally, the maximum speed at these turnings has been restricted to 40 km/hour. Overtaking at these narrow carriageways along with parking on the flyover has been strictly prohibited. Entry for cyclists, two and three-wheelers, three and four-wheeled seven seaters, pushcarts and bullock carts are prohibited on the flyover. All the goods vehicles, including light, medium and heavy vehicles, will also be not allowed.[1]

Rajiv Elevated Expressway

This is a proposed 30-km Elevated Expressway along Rajiv Rahadari (SH-1) from Parade Grounds to Shamirpet. However, the proposal on the expressway has been shelved by the state government due to high project costs.[2] As of August 2009, the project was estimated to cost around Rs. 540 crore. The elevated expressway is meant to connect the busy Secunderabad-Shamirpet stretch via Karkhana, Trimulgherry and Bollarum.
