Hyderabad Metro Announces Additional Station for Airport Link in Nagole

NVS Reddy Leads Inspection to Finalize Route Amidst Flyovers and River Constraints, Offers Solutions for Smooth Progress


HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): The Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) has announced the addition of a new metro station in Nagole as part of the extension of the metro service to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Shamshabad. The decision was made public following a detailed inspection of the proposed route for the airport metro link by HMR officials.

On Saturday, a team led by Hyderabad Metro’s Managing Director N.V.S. Reddy inspected the Nagole-Chandrayangutta stretch, a critical segment of the 14-km proposed line. During the survey, the alignment was adjusted slightly to accommodate existing infrastructure, moving it 10 meters to the left along the Musi River.

This adjustment will prevent the need to relocate major water pipelines and high-tension power lines, a move that is expected to speed up the construction process and reduce costs.

Location Planning by Hyderabad Metro Rail

The new station, dubbed the Nagole RTO, will be strategically located near the Alkapuri Junction and aims to enhance connectivity with the Outer Ring Road (ORR). This will be crucial in facilitating easier airport access for residents and travellers coming from various parts of the city.

An additional station is planned immediately after crossing the Musi River to provide direct access to the road leading from Kottapet Junction, further enhancing the line’s reach.

Discussing the project, Mr. Reddy highlighted the engineering challenges, especially at the Chandrayangutta interchange station. This station will require careful integration with the Old City Metro extension due to the existing flyover and the necessary terminal facilities. Height adjustments will be crucial for ensuring a seamless connection between the two metro lines.

In addressing the community impact, HMR officials have confirmed that private land acquisition will be minimal and will involve negotiations with local authorities and residents to minimise disruption.

Construction timelines and further details on the project phases are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
