Hyderabad Metro Project

  • One of largest modern transport systems based on PPP model
  • Proposed metro length around 72km
  • Set to provide relief to Hyderabad from carbon emission
  • Trains will have maximum speed of 80 kmph and average speed of 34 kmph

The Hyderabad Metro Rail is being developed as one of the largest modern transport systems in the world based upon the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model and is a venture by the Government of Telangana. The main idea behind the concept of Metro Rail is to ensure commuters reach on time to work and are not delayed on account of lack of rapid transport. Metro Rail will allow them to bypass these traffic congestion barriers.

The project is estimated to cost around Rs 14,132 crore (US$ 2.31 billion) and the proposed length of the project is around 72 km with stations located at every kilometre. The project is expected to serve three 'high density corridors', which will have frequency of three to five minutes during peak hours. The three corridors are: Corridor 1: Miyapur-L.B.Nagar (29 km), Corridor 2: Jubliee Bus Stand-Falaknuma (15 km) and Corridor 3: Nagole-Shilparamam (28 km).
