The Outer Ring Road is a road-cum-area development project, since its aim is the
development of well-planned and well-connected urban settlements around the Hyderabad
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"

from INCAP(40%) and HUDA(60%). Currently, INCAP holds 26% and HMDA holds 74% of
equity in HGCL.
The ORR is developed as an expressway of 8 lanes divided with access control, and
has a total of 19 access points. The ORR has a length of 158 km connecting several
areas such as Narsing - Kokapet - Patancheru - Medchal - Shamirpet - Ghatkesar -
Pedda Amberpet - Shamshabad - TSPA - Narsing -Nankramguda -Gachibowli. Further,
along the ORR, service roads are developed with 2 lanes undivided section, on both
sides of ORR.
Objectives of ORR are:
- To provide quick access to important nodes in the city & to connect various urban
nodes outside the city by connecting the NH and SH network and other important city
- To act as a bypass for the through traffic on the national highways and state highways
and in turn reduce the accidents by avoiding movement of commercial traffic in the
- To reduce congestion in the metropolitan area and inner ring road.
- To reduce overall pollution in the city and to promote environmental up-gradation.
The ORR is an Access Controlled Expressway with the following salient features:
Right of Way (ROW)
Main Carriage Way
Hard shoulder for emergency Parking/breakdown vehicles
3 m wide.
Width of Central Median
Service Roads on either side
The Service Road of ORR act as:
An Emergency lane
Provide space to the breakdown vehicles
Provide access from the radial roads to the nearest interchanges and interchanges and vice versa.
An interchange is a grade separated (is the process of aligning a junction of two or more transport axes at
different heights) connection between a limited access facility and another road. The primary objective of an interchange
is to maintain mainline traffic flow while allowing access to and from the limited access facility. Entry and exit ramps allow
traffic to enter or exit a freeway. Every interchange on ORR is provided with toll plazas.
33 Radial Roads including National Highways and State Highways have been identified for improvement to provide improved connectivity
between Inner Ring Road and Outer Ring Road. Radial Roads are provided to give connectivity to Growth Centers / Industrial Parks / Satellite Towns.
Open up new areas to encourage shifting of Industrial /Commercial establishments from non-conforming to conforming areas.
7 Radial Roads viz: RR No. 2,3,4,25,28,29 & 33 for a total length of 53.72 Km have been completed to connect western and southern sectors of the
ORR with IRR by widening to 4/6 lanes and strengthening.
5 Radial Roads viz: RR-5, 11, 16, 22 & 15 for a total length of 57.80 Km connecting Northern and Western sectors of the ORR with IRR, with loan assistance
