Hyderabad Metro from LB Nagar to Miyapur flagged off, Corridor 1 complete
With the 46-km length operational, the Hyderabad Metro has become India's second largest metro rail network after Delhi.



The Hyderabad Metro Rail on Monday commenced operations on the 16-km Ameerpet-LB Nagar line along one of the busiest corridors in the city. Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Governor E S L Narasimhan flagged off the train at the Ameerpet station in the presence of Telangana Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao, other ministers and top officials.

With the 46-km length operational, the Hyderabad Metro has become India's second largest metro rail network after Delhi. The 30-km stretch between Uppal and Miyapur is already in operation since November 2017.

The Ameerpet-LB Nagar line completed the first corridor of the elevated Metro Rail from LB Nagar to Miyapur (29 km), connecting the north-western and the south-eastern parts of the city through its core.

The 16-km stretch thrown open on Monday has 17 stations. It passes through one of the most congested traffic corridors, which includes areas like Lakdi-ka-pul, Assembly, Nampally, Moazzam Jahi Market and Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS), Malakpet and Dilsukhnagar

The metro station which has come up at MGBS is one of the biggest in Asia. The interchange station across Musi River connects corridor I (Miyapur - L B Nagar) and Corridor II (Jubliee Bus Stand-Falaknuma) It is still under construction.

A key feature of the Ameerpet-LB Nagar stretch is the proposed development of 5 km heritage precinct between Assembly and MGBS with Deccani stone pavers, railings in Indo-Persian architectural style and period street furniture.

According to officials, the metro train at an average speed of 32 kmph initially would cover the 29-km distance in 52 minutes against two hours by road.

The initial frequency of one train every five minutes will be increased to 2 minutes gradually.

I rode a small section of Hyderabad metro (red line) last weekend. Overall a very positive impression - clean, well organized, not overcrowded (middle of the day) and much faster than on the road. Potential issue is that it might get tight when ridership increases significantly as I expect. Not enough ticket machines, too few turnstiles and too much safety theater for fast turnover during rush hour.

There are some curiosity and suggestions from me, could anyone answer these questions?

1) Hence all metro routes (present and future) will be elevated, will it not best to call it elevated rail or sky train instead of metro? I think authority should re-brand it.

2) Hence red line is now completed, why they are not introducing 6 coach trains? Because it connects Malakpet, Nam-pally, Lakdi ka pul, Khairtabad & Bharatnagar – 5 suburban rail stations, among them Nampally is the busiest, so many commuters interchange at these 5 stations. 6 coach trains could easily handle the extra crowd, and metro trains will not be overcrowded. From when the 6 coach train will be started?

3) What are the full names of these places? – JNTU, KPHB, ESI, SR Nagar, LB Nagar, NGRI, COD, RTC Cross Road.

4) When the blue line western extension up to Shilparamam will be opened?

5) What is the planned opening date of green line?

Why so???

2) Hence red line is now completed, why they are not introducing 6 coach trains?

From when the 6 coach train will be started?

HMRL uses CBTC also called driver-less train, which enables the system to run train at every 90 seconds. For safety reason it will run at every 120 seconds. So until unless the whole section or that particular line is running at every 120 seconds they won't be any increase in the number of coaches.

3) What are the full names of these places? – JNTU, KPHB, ESI, SR Nagar, LB Nagar, NGRI, COD, RTC Cross Road.

JNTU-Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University
KPHB-Kukatpally Housing Board
ESI-Employees' State Insurance
S.R Nagar-Sanjeeva Reddy Nagar
L.B Nagar-Lal Bahadur Nagar
NGRI-National Geophysical Research Institute
COD-Centre for Organization Development
RTC-Road Transport Corporation


4) When the blue line western extension up to Shilparamam will be opened?

Blue line does not end at Hitech City (Shilparamam as per old plan), it goes till Raidurg. Line till Hitech should open any time soon as they got the safety clearance

5) What is the planned opening date of green line?
The whole line will not open any time soon. But if everything goes well a small section between Parade Ground and MGB might open by end of this year.

Operations between Ameerpet and the IT hub of Hitec City stretch of Metro Rail Corridor-III began a few days back! This long-awaited 10 km stretch with 9 stations will establish the crucial metro connectivity to the congested IT/ITES corridor and ease the pressure on commuters cutting down their travel time.

Hyderabad Metro Blue Line

In the last few photos, you can see the progress of the HITEC City–Raidurg stretch which will open in August. It is a 1 station extension which will serve the nearby IKEA and a few dozen office towers under construction. Hopefully the line gets extended into the financial district in the future
