Hyderabad: The state government finalised the route map of phase-2 of the Hyderabad Metro Rail project here on Monday. The route map set by the previous BRS government has been scrapped.
Given the city’s increasing traffic, chief minister Revanth Reddy has directed officials to take up the Metro expansion project soon. The new proposed Metro rail routes will connect the Airport to the four corners of Hyderabad and ensure Metro services are available to a majority of commuters.
Currently, the Hyderabad Metro Rail provides services on a stretch of 69 km in three corridors between Miyapur and LB Nagar, JBS station to MGBS and Nagole to Rayadurg.
In the phase-2 expansion, the Metro rail network between Secunderabad Jubilee Bus Station to MGBS will be extended up to Chandrayangutta Cross Road.
