Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today flagged off the JBS-MGBS stretch of the Hyderabad Metro Rail at the JBS metro station, and traveled the 11-km stretch which has nine stations.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by ministers Mahmood Ali, K T Rama Rao, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Srinivas Goud and Malla Reddy, Congress MP A Revanth Reddy, Mayor Bonthu Rammohan, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and Metro Rail MD N V S Reddy among others.
The new corridor, the first part of the green line, inaugurated today connects the JBS, Parade Grounds, Secunderabad Railway Station, Gandhi Hospital, Musheerabad, RTC Cross Roads, Chikkadpally, Narayanaguda, Sultan Bazaar and MGBS metro stations.
The JBS metro station is the highest of all the stations, built at five floors and at 53 metres in height. It was built above the Nagole-Miyapur metro rail route, and it runs parallel to the flyover at YMCA in Secunderabad.
Spread over 3 lakh square feet, the Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) interchange metro station is one of the largest in the country with several special features. It houses the interchange between corridors I & II with three levels, with each again split into two, as one corridor passes over the other. All the passenger-friendly facilities are seamlessly integrated to enable easy and smooth transit from one corridor to the other.
The world's largest public-private partnership, the Hyderabad Metro Rail is now the second largest operational metro network in the country covering 69.2 km. "As builders of nations, we are proud to be executing the projects that make India proud, and the iconic Hyderabad Metro Rail project ranks among one of most prestigious projects that we have executed," said S N Subrahmanyan, CEO & Managing Director, Larsen & Toubro.
