The Hyderabad –Vijayawada highway say unprecedented traffic snarls since 8 a.m. on Wednesday, as people belonging to Andhra Pradesh headed back home for the election on April 11.

Traffic was bumper to bumper at the Panthangi toll plaza, the first gate to Andhra Pradesh on the highway. And vehicles were stranded for at least a km, at several plazas. There was no waiver of toll fee, as provided during the Telangana State elections.

Cars and SUVs were in long queues as a few motorists claimed waiver, citing '3-minute waiting rule'. However, the staff at Madgulapally plaza en route Miryalaguda were confused and did agree.

A toll official said instructions had been sought if any waivers are to be applied.

 “An average day traffic is anywhere between 12, 000 and 15, 000 vehicles. On special days, it would touch even 20,000,” an officer at the toll plaza said.

The NH-65 in the old undivided Nalgonda district has four toll plazas enroute – Panthangi at Choutuppal, Korlapahad at Kethepally, Chillakallu and Keesara plazas at the exit of Suryapet near Kodad.

Another gate is between Nalgonda and Miryalaguda, near Madgulapally on the Narketpally-Addanki State highway, that connects to the Rayalaseema region.

The single-phase election in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday will decide candidates for 175 Assembly seats and 25 Parliamentary constituencies.
