    Construction of 53 railway overbridges and underbridges (ROBs/RUBs) is underway in Telangana, with 28 of them already completed and 25 in progress. The government has allocated ₹2,500 crore for the prevention of accidents and traffic congestion at railway crossings.

    Railway crossings have been a cause of accidents and traffic jams, prompting the state government to take proactive measures. In the past, the government has spent ₹2,528.18 crore to construct 53 new ROBs/RUBs. Among these, 32 are located at railway crossings throughout the state. The railway network has been expanded in various districts, including Adilabad, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Medak, Warangal, Khammam, Rangareddy, Hyderabad, Nalgonda, and Mahabubnagar, where many unmanned railway crossings pose a risk of accidents. These crossings create a delay of up to two hours during peak traffic hours.

    In addition to causing inconvenience to commuters, these crossings have resulted in the loss of lives. In July 2014, 10 students lost their lives when a school bus was hit by a train at a railway crossing in Medak district. In light of this incident, Chief Minister KCR has emphasized the need to eliminate human-free railway crossings and take prompt action to reduce traffic congestion. As per his instructions, the Railways department has collaborated with the Railways and ordered the construction of ROBs/RUBs at 53 railway crossings with an expenditure of ₹2,528.18 crore.

    The completed ROBs/RUBs after the state’s formation include Kagaznagar, Bellampalli, Dedukur Gate, Bonakal Yard, Errupalem, Dhamasalapuram, Appanapalli, Lingampalli, Aleuru, Shankarpalli, Ramgundam, Ghanpur, Bebeenagar, Bhuvanagiri, Nekkonda, Warangal Town, Warangal Urban Battle Bazaar, Nagulapalli, Bijigiri Sharif, Indaram-Kundaram, Anandbagh, Gadwal, Kothagudem-Devarapalli Road-1, Kothagudem-Devarapalli Road-2, Devarakadra, Charlapalli.
