About Hyderabad Metro Train:
Metros and the MRTS (Mass Rapid Transport System) have emerged as key areas of infrastructure development in the most densely populated primary cities. The State Government and the South Central Railway launched the Multi-Model Transport System (MMTS) in August 2003 to cater to the growing public transport needs and to ease heavy road congestion in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
In 2003, the Union Urban Development Ministry accepted the Hyderabad Metro Rail Project, chaired by Urban Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. In 2007, the central government approved a grant of Rs 1,639 crore.
The Government of Telangana on 26 March 2018, announced that Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) and Hyderabad Metro Development Authority (HMDA) will jointly set up a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) “Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HML)”. Blue Line from Ramdurg to Shamshabad and Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Shamshabad.
After the inauguration of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on November 28, the Hyderabad Metro Train was introduced to the public on November 29. Two development of the 2 corridors from Miyapur to Aamirpet and from Nagol to Aamirpet are working successfully.
The success story of Phase-1:
The Phase-1 of the Hyderabad Metro Rail Project includes three corridors – the Green Line from JBS to Falaknuma (15 km), the Blue Line from Nagole to Raidurg (28 km), and the Red Line from Miyapur to LB Nagar (29 km). At present, 45 km is operational out of the projected 72 km.
Services between MGBS and Jubilee Bus Station (9.66 km) on the Green Line will begin from mid-2019, while on the Blue Line, a metro link between Ameerpet to HI-TEC City (9.43 km) is likely to start by 2019-end.
The Success story of Phase-2:
The construction of Phase-2 had taken up solely by the state government of Telangana, instead of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) mode in Phase-1. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was entrusted to give a detailed project report (DPR) for Phase-2. Hyderabad Metro Rail Phase-2 expansion plan is for about 85 km, which includes providing a link to Shamshabad RGI Airport. The proposed routes are as following:
- Line-1 Extension – Red – Miyapur – BHEL – Patancheru – 15 km (9.3 mi)
- Line-1 Extension – Red – LB Nagar – Hayath Nagar – 7 km (4.3 mi)
- Line-2 Extension – Green – JBS-Alwal – 8 km (5.0 mi)
