The Hyderabad metro stretch between Ameerpet and Hitec City will begin service by the end of December this year, said NVS Reddy, the managing director of Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) on Monday. There are 10 stations along this stretch, which are part of Phase 3 of the HMRL project.
 
“The metro work progress is pretty good and it is going according to schedule. We expect the work along Ameerpet to Hitec City line to be completed and service to begin before the end of December this year,” said Reddy.
 
Phase 3 of the Hyderabad metro is between Nagole-Raidurgam. Part of this stretch, from Nagole to Ameerpet, began operating in November 2017 after it was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
 
The metro stations along the stretch opening in December are Madhura Nagar, Yusufguda, Jubilee Hills road number 5, Jubilee Hills check-post, Peddamma temple, Madhapur, Durgam Cheruvu, Hitec City, Shilparamam and Raidurgam.
 
In the initial metro plans, the last station along the Phase 3 route was to be the Shilparamam station, but Raidurgam was added later. HMRL is drawing plans to extend this line to Shamshabad to provide metro service to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA).
 
The Hyderabad metro is presently operational along the entire stretch of Phase 1 corridor between Miyapur-LB Nagar, with 27 stations and part of Phase 3 — 13 stations from Nagole to Ameerpet — open to the public.
 
Phase 2 of the project between Jubilee bus station to Falaknuma with 16 stations is expected to be completed by 2019.
 
Reddy made the announcement at a press conference on the Hyderabad Metro Rail project being judged the ‘Best Urban Mass Transit Project’ by the central government.
 
Reddy also announced that a heritage section with pedestrian pathways and skywalks will be built in a 5-km stretch between the State Legislative Assembly and Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station on the Musi river banks. This developmental initiative is a part of the central government proposal to develop all future metros as urban rejuvenation projects. The Centre will take on 5 to10% of the project cost that will be set apart for the development of related infrastructure, he added.
