Hyderabad: Considered by all as a top performer among all the zones in Indian Railways, the South Central Railway (SCR) in 2019 struggled with inordinate delays in completing many infrastructure-related projects in twin cities.Among the major prestigious projects, the much-awaited MMTS phase II has continued to face hurdles in the form of budget constraints and land acquisition.For years, commuters in the twin cities have been waiting for the completion of MMTS Phase-II, which could provide much-need relief in the daily commute. The MMTS Phase- II project was proposed with a cost of Rs.845 crore for a distance of 84 km on various sections including Secunderabad – Moulali – Ghatkesar, Secunderabad – Bolarum – Medchal, Moulali – Sanathnagar and Telapur – Ramchandrapuram.Out of these, only Telapur – Ramchandrapuram stretch was launched and works on remaining sections are still progressing. Officials familiar with the initiative said that Rs.400 crore is still required to complete...

the project. The project also got delayed due to difficulties in land acquisition in some pockets of Sanathnagar – Moulali section.Railway officials said that works on Secunderabad – Bolarum section are nearing completion. Another SCR initiative of developing the existing Cherlapally station as a terminal at an estimated cost of Rs 350 crore is also hit by inordinate delays. The project, which commenced in 2017, has not witnessed much change as works are still progressing.New railway tracksIn addition, Akanapet-Medak’s new rail connectivity is yet to be completed, which was supposed to be completed by March. The budget given by Indian Railways for Akanapet–Medak new line from 2014-15 to 2018-19 was Rs 169 crore and the budgetary allocation for the 2018-19 financial year was Rs122.27 crore.The works related to construction of new railway line connecting Hyderabad and Karimnagar (Manoharabad – Kothapalli) are progressing. This new line project was sanctioned for a distance of 151.40 km at an estimated cost of Rs 1160 crore. The rail line is crucial as the entire belt has several important towns including pilgrim centres.New MMTS rakesThis year, SCR introduced new MMTS rakes on various sections in twin cities to accommodate increasing passenger rush. These 12 coach MMTS rakes with different colour patterns and glossy looks have a capacity of 1150 seats while standing capacity is around 4000. SCR has also enhanced facilities in a few stations and trains this year and among them, introduction of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches is the main highlight, which replaced the conventional coaches.Trains including Lingampalli-Tirupati Narayanadri Express, Hyderabad–New Delhi Telangana Express, Hyderabad–Tirupati Rayalaseema Express and Hyderabad–Chennai Charminar Express have been upgraded with LHB coaches. This apart, Head on Generation (HOG),a 3state-of-the-art new technology has been introduced in LHB coaches, which saves a lot of financial resources for SCR.Now you can get handpicked stories from Telangana Today on WhatsApp / Telegram everyday.

Indian Express reported that with the construction of a new railway line between Akanapet and Medak, Telangana people’s long-cherished dream of Hyderabad-Medak rail connectivity is set to be fulfilled very soon. While the new railway line, the construction of which is scheduled to be completed in the early part of the New Year, will cater to the needs of the people travelling between Medak and Hyderabad, it will also mark a new dawn of financial growth and development in the region. An important project being monitored by the Prime Minister’s office and being implemented under the transformational policies adopted by Minister for Railways Mr Piyush Goyal according to top priority for the last mile projects, the Akanapet-Medak railway line is scheduled to be complete by March next year.

completed, this railway project will not only put Medak, an important town near Hyderabad which is hitherto unconnected by rail, as well as the district on the railway map and will also provide rail connectivity to the people of interior and backward areas of this district. The 17.2 km project was sanctioned in 2012-13 at an estimated cost of Rs 117.72 crore. The Indian Railways allocated Rs 169 crore for the project during 2014-15 to 2018-19 and it has also set aside Rs 122.27 crore for the 2018-19 financial year.
The project, on the strength of a reliable rail route, is set to open new avenues of mobility and contribute to the overall development in the region.
The initiative of the Railways has met the cooperation of the Telangana government, with Indian Railways bearing 50 per cent of the project cost and 50 per cent the State government.
In addition, the State government has also given land free of cost for the construction of a new rail line. Laying of the new line involves the construction of three new railway stations, three major bridges, one Road Over Bridge, 35 minor bridges and 15 Road Under Bridges.
The new railway line will provide connectivity to three more important towns with three new railway stations, including Medak.
The existing Akanapet Station will become a junction with one main line and a new loop line, proposed to connect the Medak line, added to the existing loop line. In addition to the existing high-level platform, it is proposed to have an additional high-level platform and a Foot Over Bridge.
Besides Medak, the other major station on the line will be Lakshmapur, which will be a crossing station with one main line and two loop lines. There are plans to have one high level and one low-level platforms at this station, with a proposal for construction of a new station building, including relay, battery or generator room.
New facilities
Medak, a developing town and the district headquarters, is an important commercial centre for different agricultural products which are exported to different places. The town is also famous for Medak Church of South India, Westly - South India’s largest Church since 1924.
Medak will be a terminal station and it will have one main line, one passenger loop line and one goods loading/unloading line. One high-level platform and one rail level goods platform, and a new station building, including battery or generator room, are proposed to be built at this station.
Once the project is completed, more rail users, including the pilgrims, will benefit a lot as they will be able to travel directly to and from Mumbai, Nanded, Aurangabad, Delhi and northern districts of Telangana. There is every possibility of this town becoming a major tourist hub after the completion of the project.
‘Speed up ongoing railway works in Nizamabad’
Nizamabad: Railway Minister Piyush Goyal asked the officials concerned to speed up the ongoing project works like Railway Under Bridge, Railway Over Bridges and Widening of Level Crossings Gates in Nizamabad Lok Sabha constituency. The Minister has sent a written replay on Wednesday to Nizamabad MP K Kavitha, who had sent him a letter on January 24 about Railway projects issue in the district. Minister also assured that a RUB, which is under progress at Vijaya Talkies, in Nizamabad town will be completed soon.
