 The Govt. of AP has proposed some major infrastructure facilities in the city of Hyderabad, and one of them is the construction of an orbital linkage to decongest the traffic flow on the existing major arterials. The Outer Ring Road (ORR) is an initiative in this direction.


 The Outer Ring Road is a road-cum-area development project, since its aim is the development of well-planned and and well-connected urban settlements around the Hyderabad Metropolitan area. Click here for ORR photo gallery.

 The Government of Andhra Pradesh formed a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for the development of the Outer Ring Road, called the “Hyderabad Growth Corridor Limited", under the Companies Act 1956 on 26th December 2005, with equity participation from INCAP(40%) and HUDA(60%). Currently, INCAP holds 26% and HMDA holds 74% of equity in HGCL.

The 159 km ring road connects Patancheru-Shamshabad-Hayathnagar-Medchal­Patancheru, providing connectivity to various State Highways and National Highways, to by-pass the city of Hyderabad. The proposed corridor is aimed at


  • Relieving congestion on the metropolitan area and the inner ring road and meeting future demand
  • Providing orbital linkage to radial arterial roads
  • Creating options for the development of future satellite townships
  • Providing linkage to the proposed MRTS and bus system
  • Providing quick access to the international airport from strategic parts of the city
  • Connecting various new urban nodes outside the city, including HiTech city, the Games village, IIIT, ISB, Hardware Park, and Singapore Township Financial district
