The team has decided to extend the seven-kilometre LB Nagar-Hayatnagar Metro corridor from the LB Nagar junction to the proposed Chintalkunta metro station.

For under-construction flyovers and metro pillars, the engineering team proposed six metro stations to be slightly readjusted to access both sides of the national highway seamlessly.

For the 5 km Mailardevpally and new High Court spur line which starts at Mailardevpally junction, the metro alignment will be on the left side of the PVNR Expressway at Aramghar and then switch to the right side between the PVNR and Agriculture University flyover.
