A Rail over bridge (ROB) over the railway tracks was inaugurated on 14 August 2009 by the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy.[1] The bridge was opened after a long gap of thirteen years after works were grounded due to the delay caused by land acquisition problems and various other reasons.[2]
