HMR corridors are crossing the tracks of Indian Railways at eight locations in twin cities with Corridor-I (Miyapur to L B Nagar) having three ROBs, Corridor-II (JBS to Falaknuma) having one ROB and Corridor-III (Nagole to Shilparamam) having four ROBs. “Out of the eight Metro ROBs, six are concrete bridges and two are steel bridges,” said HMR Managing Director NVS Reddy.
