Then the metro will pass from badi chowdi instead of passing bata at sultan Baazar.

different tune

Now you are singing a different tune. If the pedestrian market would be rebuilt-enhanced, I am all for it. That is not the plan. The plan is to get rid of Sultan Bazaar and build a Mall. This Mall building mania has to stop.

Thank you

redesign coaches

The metro cars are like prison cells. The Volvo buses (link below) with huge windows can be an inspiration for a design change. The windows and seating make for a pleasant journey (when the roads are fixed).

Thank you

Sreedharan takes part in Hyderabad metro train test run

Business Standard
Quote:
'Metro Man' E Sreedharan today participated in a test run of Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) between two stations and termed as 'high quality' the quality of construction and facilities created at a depot here.

Sreedharan, Principal Advisor to Delhi Metro Rail Corp, along with HMR Managing Director N V S Reddy took part in the train test run from Nagole to Survey of India metro stations.

He inspected various facilities of Uppal Metro Rail depot and Nagole station.

"The ride quality and behaviour of various components of the Hyderabad Metro system are very good," he said.

Sreedharan advised Reddy and the team of engineers of construction company to maintain the same high standard in construction of the remaining rail structures and complete the project as per schedule.

He appreciated the innovative design features of metro stations and engineering techniques adopted in viaduct and station construction by Larson & Toubro (L&T), a HMR release said.

The project, originally estimated to cost Rs 14,132 crore, is being executed by L&T Hyderabad Metro Rail Pvt Ltd.

HMR is the biggest urban infrastructure project undertaken on public-private partnership basis. The elevated rail will cover a total distance of 72 km with three corridors comprising 66 stations, the release added.
New Hyderabad metro route to circumvent heritage structures

Indian Express
Quote:
To ensure that heritage structures and two decades-old markets are not obscured, the L&T and Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd (HMR) are all set to realign the metro route in the Lakdi Ka Pul-Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station sector of the city. The move comes after Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao instructed HMR to work on an alternative route that will circumvent heritage buildings like the Assembly building and the Telangana Martyrs Memorial. The CM is also keen to protect old markets like Sultan Bazaar and Moazzam Jahi, falling on the stretch.

Metro construction along the markets would lead to demolition of hundreds of shops and displace footpath vendors and small traders. The shopkeepers have been protesting ever since the metro plan was conceived and the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief had assured them during election campaign that he would protect their interests once his party came to power in the state.

HMR, which is conducting a feasibility study to alter the original design, will shortly submit a report to the government. Managing Director N V S Reddy on Sunday said: “L&T will also prepare its own report involving feasibility, additional costs and compensation etc.”

To circumvent the Assembly building, the tracks will have to be diverted to the rear side of Telugu University towards Lakdi Ka Pul through police quarters. This will necessitate demolition of many police quarters including the official residence of Telangana DGP.

On the other side, to save Sultan Bazaar and Moazzam Jahi markets, the route will be redesigned to pass from near Koti Women’s College towards Kacheguda. Metro stations proposed at Assembly and Sultan Bazaar will also have to be relocated.

HMR will also have to demolish at least 20 pillars that have already been erected from Lakdi Ka Pul.

Telangana Chief Secretary Dr Rajeev Sharma held a meeting with HMR officials Saturday to discuss issues they would confront while redesigning the route and hinted that Telangana government would compensate Rs 400 crore for the realignment.

The realignment would not only escalate the project cost by nearly Rs 600 crores but will delay the project in stage V (S R Nagar to L B Nagar in corridor 1) and stage VI (JBS to Falaknuma in corridor 2). HMR officials said the project may be delayed by six to eight months. The original deadline for completing corridor 1 (Miyapur-L B Nagar) is August 2016 while corridor 2 is January 2017.
Hyderabad Metro Rail seeks suggestions on skywalks

Deccan Chronicle
Quote:
The Hyderabad Metro Rail has invited suggestions to help plan the connectivity of its skywalks better.

Speaking at ‘August Fest 2014’ here, HMR managing director N.V.S. Reddy said, “We want schools, colleges and commercial complexes to be properly connected to the skywalks. To ensure that it is effective and also people-friendly, suggestions from students, teachers, professors and businessmen are welcome.”

The intention is to ensure complete utilisation of skywalks. At the same time, safety and security are also to be kept in mind.

Metro stations chief architect Sushil Verma explained, “Metro stations are being built on one pillar which is the first of its kind in the world. The stations will have skywalks which will connect to nearby schools, colleges, shopping malls. Over 200 skywalks have been planned in the city.”

While planning, designs from Japan, Bangkok and other cities were taken into account but the metro stations were built to suit the Indian environment. There is a lot of ventilation inside the metro stations and solar technology will also be used so that electricity consumption can be reduced.

Mr Reddy explained, “Street furniture will be an important aesthetic aspect of metro stations. They will depict the culture of the state and at the same time be useful for senior citizens, women and children.”

I am singing the same tune. Demolish sultan bazar completely. Shift all the genuine shopkeepers into a modern shopping complex. Connect it to the metro station. The street hawkers (many of them are agents of the shopkeepers) will anyway occupy the area below the metro.

The 2000 odd shopkeepers cannot be allowed to hold to ransom the entire city's development. That's just not done. They have to move. I find it illogical , that to save a few buildings that will anyway collapse soon, the metro has to be shifted. Why can't these guys see the benefit that accrued to everyone on the koti to moazzamjahi mkt road. If they don't shift to better shopping experiences they will eventually lose customers.

Though I would sympathize with any body loosing there property.. But they are getting a market value and a chance to improve there shops, which are really in bad shape. I am with old alignment. Now let them loose the opportunity.
As people are more towards the mall culture. They want a nice shopping experience. As they are already paying from there nose for everything.

And though I support Mr Tankbund that we need foot path and roads to maintained but that doesnt mean we stick some old logic, which is effecting every body.

And If you really serious about Heritage, so show it. Heritage structures are not that are in situtation, where they can collapse any time.

Any which ways. Good part is Metro is going to happen with few changes.

I dont think it will be that easy, Badichowdi traders also may not part with their properties after this realignment decision. Also Ameerpet, Yousfuguda traders opp. where HC case is pending also may gain impetus, and similarly in many other areas lets see
