HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): On Friday, Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) Managing Director N.V.S. Reddy said that trains towards Hi-Tec City station would move faster and with better frequency from Ameerpet/Jubilee Hills Check Post station within the next four to five days, once the safety certification was obtained.
“The HMR project is getting good traffic right from day one of commercial operations and we have just crossed the three lakh mark,” he said.
Mr. Reddy also informed that trial runs for the remaining 1.5 km stretch from Hi-Tec City to the terminal station at Raidurg (Mindspace junction) would also be taken up to make the entire Corridor Three from Nagole operational.
L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) has announced that Chief Electrical Inspector (CEIG), Government of India, for HMR, D.V.S. Raju, conducted the statutory inspection of the Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) between Hi-Tec City and Raidurg stations on Friday.
“Energisation of OETS in this section will facilitate testing of reversal operation (upline to the downline and vice versa) beyond Hi-Tec City station. Further, completion of these trails beyond Hi-Tec City station is crucial to improve the frequency of trains between Ameerpet and Hi-Tec City and ease the peak hour rush in this section,” said Mr. Raju.
L&T MRH MD and CEO K.V.B. Reddy said, “It is an important milestone for Corridor 3.” He thanked the CEIG for inspecting the OETS.
