The ongoing mega project Hyderabad Metro Rail was proposed at 72 kilometres in length but after the recent realignment in the route, the length has been extended by 3.2 km.
The information was revealed by a senior official. The earlier project was to construct 72 km with three corridors and 66 stations. The new proposal would extend to 75.2 km.
The Managing Director of the Hyderabad Metro Rail N V S Reddy said, “With regard to (realignment between) Assembly building and Sultan Bazar there will be no change distance-wise. In the Old City the local representatives have suggested a different route (on MGBS-Falaknuma route) and this is likely to extend the distance by roughly 3.2 km”.
“The government comes to a decision after taking into account different aspects. The proposed changes on alignment have been indicated to L&TMRH. They will take up technical and financial feasibility on the alignment changes and we will also study these things and come out with our report and both reports will be submitted to an Independent agency and on that basis compensation will be known”, added Mr. Reddy.
