Hyderabad: L&T, the concessionaire of the first phase of the Hyderabad Metro Rail project, is not interested in starting the second phase of the project in which the Metro Rail will be linked to the Shamshabad airport. The concessionaire experience several problems with the government during the execution of the first phase.
The another reason for not taking interest on further metro project could be lot of political interference in execution of this project as this project is being executed on PPP model.
And now, there are even doubts about the viability of the project and, therefore, L&T is not interested in participating in the project. If L&T is not interested, the government will look for others to develop the link, probably through open tenders.
A feasibility study of the 30.3 km Metro Metro link, which connects the Raidurg Metro station in Hyderabad with the Shamshabad airport, had been completed. The report is before the Chief Minister, who will make a final decision very soon.
