Prime Minister likely to launch the project on the Miyapur-Ameerpet-Nagole stretch
It is not often that two major capital roads get blocked for traffic. The closure of Ameerpet and Oliphenta Bridge is an indication that metro rail authorities are going full steam ahead to complete two sections of Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) by November.
As things stand now, Miyapur to Ameerpet (13 km) of Corridor One - Miyapur to L.B. Nagar and Nagole to Ameerpet (17 km) of Corridor Three - Nagole to Hi-Tec/Raidurg is likely to be thrown open in a grand
ceremony later this year. Although details are still under wraps, the government wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to launch the project as he is being expected here for the forthcoming Global Financial Summit and to inaugurate the giant 216 ft Sri Ramanuja statue at Muchintal in Shamshabad.
For L&T Metro Rail (L&TMRH) and HMR engineers, it is now a race against time because the key station to be completed in the next four months will be Ameerpet, one of the three metro interchange stations where Miyapur - L.B.Nagar line (15 metres/50 ft in ht) will go over Nagole-Raidurg line (10 metres/33 ft). MGBS and Parade Grounds being other two. Metro rail officials were considering to pass over Ameerpet (30 metres/100 ft from ground) considering the complex task involved in building two overhead stations one over the other with national highway below as the government wanted the entire Corridor One to be completed.
“Ameerpet interchange stations cannot be bypassed, so we have redrawn our schedules. We have pressed in additional men (200) and equipment to work round the clock, weather permitting, in the months ahead. It is going to be a Herculean effort,” confided senior engineers, pleading anonymity. Apart from telecom and power cable works, stations too have to get ready along these routes. Besides, trial runs have to take place for at least a month before safety certification is issued by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety for commercial operations to begin.
In the meantime, engineers intend to complete stationing steel bridge across Oliphenta rail bridge and stations en route like Begumpet. Alongside these two routes, a complete spruce up of civic infrastructure like footpaths, barricades, bus and auto bays, street furniture, signages, etc., are to be completed.
