HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): K Chandrasekhar Rao, Chief Minister of Telangana, has directed the municipal administration department to move forward with the Metro project in the Old City. The decision was announced by MAUD Minister KT Rama Rao in a tweet. The Old City stretch of the Metro, known as MGBS-Falaknuma on Corridor-II (Green Line), had faced a roadblock due to incomplete property acquisition. However, the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited had already completed the underground utilities survey and mapping by December 2022.

The delay in the project’s progress raised questions, considering the completion of the preliminary survey. In this year’s budget, the state government had allocated 500 crore specifically for the Old City Metro project.

“CM KCR also spoke to the Chairman of L&T which is the agency executing the Metro Rail Project to expeditiously take up the project and promised all needed support”, said KT Rama Rao in a tweet.

The Metro stretch joining MGBS to Falaknuma will cover a distance of 5.5 km and have five stations along the way, including Salarjung Museum, Charminar, Shahalibanda, Shamshergunj, and finally, terminating at Falaknuma. The aim is to bring convenient and efficient Metro connectivity to the Old City region of Hyderabad, benefiting residents and enhancing transportation options in the area.
