A proposal has been forwarded to the Railway Board a few days ago by the MMTS authorities seeking approval for the implementation of the second phase of the project.

Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy has already accorded his approval for the second phase. It has been proposed to run trains on six routes under the second phase. They are: Secunderabad-Medchal (28 km), Falaknuma-Shamshabad (20 km), Secunderabad-Ghatkesar (19 km), Moula Ali-Sanatnagar (21 km), Moula Ali-Kachiguda (10 km) and Telapur-Patancheru (8 km).

The total cost for implementation of the project in the second phase is Rs 324.08 crore. Of this, two-thirds (Rs 216.53 crore) would be borne by the State Government and another one-third (Rs 108.27 crore) by the railways.

The works would start immediately after the Railway Board sanctions its approval for the second phase. Two new railway lines would be laid for the project. They are: A third broad-gauge line from Secunderabad to Ghatkesar (19 km) and a 7 km-line from the proposed Shamshabad International Airport and the Shamshabad railway station.

RAKES READY: The MMTS rakes are already available for introduction in the second phase. While orders were placed for 18 rakes to Integral Coach Factory, Perambur for the first phase, currently only nine rakes were being used. Nine rakes are kept ready at the ICF and they would be brought to Hyderabad prior to the launch of the second phase. Each rake would have six coaches and would be able to accommodate about 2,000 passengers.
... hehe ... wah ... ICF ... wah-wah ... Hyderabad ... keeping in mind Hyderabad is 1 of the oldest living ... and richest ... (... Nizam ... inventor of .... & inverse to .... the Gold obssessed Hindu culture ... inversely ... the pearl ... and later ... Diamond business, Globally ... hehe ... Hindu Kings wore Gold ... Muslim Kings ... Diamonds & Pearls ... hehe) cities ... baaatan nahin karte ... hum Hyderabaadi ... meaning 'karma' karte hai ... strong work ethic ... these Hyderabadiis bring to the table ... and originality, ingenuity and class ...

A few ... the Masters critical eye ... why no elevators ... both climbing and walking types ... why not walk-through rake ... even old trains from ICF are walk-through ... why not digital, cell phone enabled smart card ticketing, whynot last mile BHEL electric-minibus connectivity, and just for kicks ... what's with the ... baba-adam ... hehe ... re-inforced table fans on the ceilings of coaches (simple vents on roof will do nicely thank-you, Hyderabad weather is mild .. all you need is a breeze), the quarter (pauwwa .. hehe) glass entry/exit side channel barrirs ... who needs them?

Some design elements look deliberate ANTI-NORTH ... anti Delhi Metro ...

Overall ... 1'st class, ... nice 'garden variety' style ... and given how rich Hyderabad Municipal Corp./AP Govt. is ... so humble ... real 'common man's' metro ... better than pseudo chic & God expensive Delhi metro.

I guess a Delhi resident could give you a more accurate answer.

Yes it is the highest station; its platforms are 17 m above ground. And yes, it is near ring road.

Because the thread you are referencing to is in the Indian section.

Metro underground ops. over

X-posted from SSC-I (orginally posted by Abhishek901)

Quote:
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Monday completed construction of the last tunnel for the Phase II stretch from Lajpat Nagar to Jangpura. With this, tunnel construction for Metro in the city came to a close. The breakthrough for Phase II on Monday evening marked the completion of the final tunnel located on the Central Secretariat-Badarpur line.

Delhi Metro's Phase II spans across a total 125km, of which about 35km (28 per cent) is underground. Over the past two years, about 14 tunnel boring machines (TBMs) have been drilling the surface even as normal life has been going on in the city. "This is the highest number of TBMs to be used at a time in any city in South Asia. The TBMs conducted 30 tunnelling drives in record time and on three corridors Central Secretariat to Qutub Minar, Airport Express Line and Central Secretariat to Badarpur,'' said a DMRC spokesperson.

Now, all the underground stretches being carved out using TBMs, New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM) or cut and are almost complete. "Work involving NATM is already over and only small cut-and-cover portions remain which are expected to be completed in two months. Significantly, the tunnelling has been accident-free despite the magnitude of work and tight schedule,'' the spokesperson added.

All tunnels were created without anything being disturbed on the surface. But it has not been easy for DMRC. Engineers recall one of the most challenging operations in the city at Jor Bagh around September 2008, when a TBM carving out a tunnel between INA and Jor Bagh encountered an unforeseen rock in the way. It resulted in severe damage to some of the cutting tools and caused the cutter wheel to stall. Investigation revealed that the rock appeared to be in the form of a ridge of strong quartzite running north-south, roughly following the tunnel alignment.

"After exploring various options, it was decided to replace the soft ground-cutting wheel of the TBM with a suitable rock-cutting wheel. A rock-cutting wheel was obtained from abroad and installed after an intricate operation including digging a shaft very close to a residential area,'' said an official.

Finally, after three interventions to inspect and change cutter tools, excavation proceeded on the stretch in February 2009. But this resulted in a delay of about six months. But the original alignment was maintained and the tunnel was completed as designed and within tolerance.

On Monday, the last pre-cast segment rings of the underground stretch of Phase-II were erected by the last TBM for a distance of about half-a-kilometre.
