In a bid to make the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) people friendly as well as to lessen inconvenience, it has decided to minimise acquisition of private properties and to follow the masterplan of road widening. Metro station designs have been classified into three categories: 60 metre (200 ft), 45 metre (150 ft) and 30 metre (100 ft) stations in tune with the city's masterplan.

Carriageway for fast moving traffic and service lanes for feeder buses and other vehicles have been segregated at Metro stations. Road reengineering plans at Nagole and Uppal Metro stations which have been taken up as pilot projects were discussed in detail in a meeting on Saturday in which HMR MD NVS Reddy, Hyderabad Police Commissioner Mahendar Reddy, Cyberabad Police Commissioner CV Anand and other senior police officers and engineers took part.

“Placement of bus bays, auto bays, private parking, junction improvement plans, landing position of skywalks etc, were deliberated. Inputs of local traffic police were taken regarding various infrastructure facilities and avoidance of traffic conflict points to facilitate smooth flow of traffic to fine tune the road level designs of the Metro stations,” stated NVS Reddy.

It was also decided to form subcommittees of HMR officers, traffic police and GHMC to jointly survey and capture the road profile and other relevant details to prepare a masterplan for improvement of Metro stations’ surroundings. The police commissioners requested NVS Reddy to identify and acquire some vacant government and private properties at Metro stations wherever possible to build integrated parking and other facilities.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Jitender, Deputy Commissioner of Cyberabad Traffic Police Avinash Mohanty, HMR Chief Engineer Ziauddin and other senior police officers and engineers participated in the meeting.
