L&T Construction, the construction arm of Larsen & Toubro, announced the completion of the iconic Medigadda Barrage project in just 24 months. The megastructure, part of Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation project, was inaugurated today by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Telangana Mr K Chandrashekar Rao, in the august presence of Hon’ble Governor of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Mr ESL Narasimhan and Chief Guests, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Devendra G Fadnavis and Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Jaganmohan Reddy. The Medigadda Barrage will be a major part of the vital irrigation infrastructure to lift an estimated 180 TMC of water per year from the river Godavari to the Sripada Yellampalli Project to provide drinking water, facilitate irrigation and meet industrial needs in 23 districts of Telangana. A dream project of the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Telangana, the project was executed on a fast track mode involving a 1.6 kilometer long barrage across the Godavari equipped with 85 gates, piers and associated guide bunds and flood bunds of 18.03 kilometer on either side of the barrage.

The completion of this project by L&T, a first-of-its-kind in the Indian construction industry, set several records in terms of sheer use of voluminous material like concrete and steel in record time in a challenging operating environment.
