Metro rail to speed up Mettuguda-Begumpet stretch.After the State government’s decision to delay the inauguration of the Nagole-Mettuguda stretch which was supposed to be thrown open to passengers on Ugadi this month, the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) officials are now keen to complete the 8.25 km Mettuguda to Begumpet stretch.
After the State government’s decision to delay the inauguration of the Nagole-Mettuguda stretch which was supposed to be thrown open to passengers on Ugadi this month, the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) officials are now keen to complete the 8.25 km Mettuguda to Begumpet stretch.
Work on the Mettuguda-Begumpet stretch has gained pace ever since the government decided to delay the inauguration of the Nagole-Mettuguda stretch by one year.A senior official of HMR said, “With the South Central Railway (SCR) exempting traffic block charges and with majority of the land acquisition issues sorted out in the Corridor III (Nagole to Shilparamam), the work would go on unhindered. Things are falling in place at the right time and the work should flow. There would be four ROBs in Corridor–III and with the exemption of traffic block charges, the work should only get faster.”
The Mettuguda-Begumpet stretch will have six stations and covers 8.25 km. The total length of the Corridor III is 26.51 km. A senior official of L&T, the concessionaire building the elevated Metro Rail project said, “74.8 per cent of the foundation work on stage 3 and 46 per cent in stage 4 has been completed. There are no major hitches now.” When asked as to when the Corridor-III is expected to be completed, the official refused to comment but said that the focus now would be on completing the stretch from Mettuguda to Begumpet.
