We will expand metro rail project to 200 KM in 2nd phase: KCR

metroCM K.Chandrasekhar Rao has instructed officials to work on extending Hyderabad Metro rail project to meet the needs of the fast growing city. Present metro rail project was designed up to 72 KM only, with no vision or provision for future needs, felt the CM. He then urged the officials to extend it to 200 KM in second phase. KCR reviewed the Metro rail project with government officials, HMR Chairman N. V. S. Reddy and  L&T chairman YM. Deosthalee at the secretariat on Wednesday. “Hyderabad population will increase to two crores in next few years, in view of this we are designing a master plan. In this master plan a clear planning for transportation system will be there. Previous governments have limited the metro rail project to 72 Kms due to lack of future awareness”, said KCR.
KCR asked metro project officials to speed up works so that Nagole-Mettuguda corridor will be ready for public use from Ugadi 2015. He told them to divert traffic wherever necessary, to complete the work as per schedule. A meeting will be conducted with municipal, police and revenue departments to resolve judicial issues troubling the Metro rail project.
L&T began an engineering trial run last week on Nagole-Mettuguda stretch, an 8-km track. Hyderabad Metro rail project is one of the biggest projects in the world being built in public private partnership (PPP) model at a cost of Rs.14,132 Crore.
