HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): The Telangana Government plans to take up semi-high speed rail connectivity to Warangal and to Vijaywada. The Hyderabad Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (HUMTA) has invited proposals from major firms to carry out a pre-feasibility study for the proposed semi-high speed rail connectivity to these corridors.

The project’s aim is to provide fast, safe and comfortable commuter systems at a rational fare for intra-regional movement of passengers. Warangal and Vijaywada corridors have been proposed because the passenger movement is high on these two corridors. The major difference between semi-high speed rail and the conventional railway is that the former will provide reliable, high frequency, point-to-point regional travel along a committed pathway. The motive of this system is to reduce dependence of commuters on road transportation and to ease the traffic.

This study will be based on secondary information, site visits and limited primary surveys for passengers, cargo and traffic/trips on competing facilities and based on the terrain and other technical requirements, a suitable system will be suggested for various sections of the corridor after reviewing the existing travel characteristics and estimation of the current and future travel demand for passenger and cargo traffic. The social and environmental aspects will also be assessed as part of the required measures for development.
