Out of the eight stations along the blue line from Ameerpet to Hitec city, Jubilee Hills check-post, Peddamma temple, and Madhapur stations will begin for the public from tomorrow.
Five out of the eight metro stations between the Ameerpet to Hitec city stretch of the Hyderabad Metro Rail will begin operations on tomorrow, announced the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) Tuesday. The extent will be initiated by the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Governor ESL Narasimhan in a low-key affair with no politicians, holding in view of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) which is in spot due to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Of the eight stations along the range, Jubilee Hills check-post, Peddamma temple, and Madhapur stations will not be permitted for the public.
“The stations will be unfolded for all after a few weeks,” said NVS Reddy, Managing Director, HMRL, who attributed the delay to work being undertaken at these stations.
The blue line comes under the phase 3 of the HMRL and there are a total of eight stations in this 10 km extent – Durgam Cheruvu and Hitec city, Yousufguda, Taruni-Madhura Nagar, Jubilee Hills Road No 5, Jubilee Hills check-post, Peddamma temple, Madhapur. This stretch drops under the 28 km blue line of the Hyderabad Metro that extends from Nagole to Raidurgam. The Raidurgam Metro Station is still under development.
HMRL will also build the Taruni-Madhura Nagar station as a woman-managed station with shops provisioning to the demands of women and children.
The regularity of the trains between the Ameerpet and Hitec city route will be 9-12 minutes as opposed to 6 minutes interval in other parts of the metro passageway. The extent will also face speed limitations initially as this extent of the metro line has many precipitous curves and rests on a waved terrain.
L&T Metro, building the Hyderabad Metro is also building a reversed facility for the trains ahead of the Hi-tech City station in front of Cyber Towers and Trident hotel. The obligation is being prepared in a staggered and consecutive manner as the way is narrow and wedged between cyber towers on one side and the flyover on the other. HMRL foresees the work to be completed in a few months.
