The mega concrete pour at Medigadda barrage of the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS), which turned out to be a continuing saga, has set an all time record. Commenced at 8 am on December 22, the men and machines that have been engaged in exercise continued to work in shifts. The Kaleshwaram Project Chief Engineer N Venkateswarlu informed Telangana Today that 90,055 cubic metres of Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) was laid on the Medigadda barrage spill way and its piers. One more day of work would take it to one lakh cubic metres, which is a record in itself.

He said 16,722 cubic metres of concrete pour was done on the first day. On an average, about 7,000-8,000 cubic metres of concrete pour was being done every day. He explained that over lakh cubic metres of concrete pour was yet to be done on the barrage, one of the six important works need to be completed by March 2019 to commission the project for giving water to the ayacut from next kharif. As desired by the Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao implementation of the project works has been put on fast track. Undeterred by the cold wave sweeping across the State, men and machines have been carrying out their work even under flood lights.
