Hyderabad: Metro begins trials on Ameerpet-Hitec City

Hyderabad, Metro Rail News: On the occasion of the first anniversary of the L&T Metro train operations. The trial run of the Metro train between Ameerpet and Hi-tec City began here Thursday. A team of technical experts and engineers led by managing director of HMRL NVS Reddy and managing director of L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited K V B Reddy travelled on the Metro train on the 10-km stretch and observed critical parameters and performance of the train during the trial run, the release said.

The stretch of Ameerpet and Hi-Tec City has eight stations. The stretch between Ameerpet and Hi-Tec City is of 10 km viz., Madhura Nagar (Taruni), Yousufguda, Jubilee Hills Road No.5, Jubilee Hills Check Post, Peddammagudi, Madhapur, Durgam Cheruvu and Hi-Tec City.

The Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited and L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited have overcome technical challenges owing to sharp curves and gradients, and also land acquisition problems, an official press release said. HMRL and L&TMRHL have achieved a major milestone in providing the eagerly waited for Metro Rail access to the Hitec City area.

The train reversal facility beyond Hi-tec city station up to Trident Hotel would take a few more months for completion, the release said adding that a solution has been found and trains would be run on the ‘twin single-line method’. Under this method, the release said,

A double-line railway track functions as two separate single-lines wherein each line works as an independent single-line and trains are operated in both up and down directions on the same line as if these are two independent single lines.

This method, used by many railways around the world, including Indian Railways, would be followed till train reversal facility beyond Hi-Tec City Metro Station is completed, the release said. Both conventional railway signaling system and the sophisticated communication-based train control system of Hyderabad Metro permit this type of twin single-line train
operations, it said.
