HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): The Telangana government is now concentrating on the Hyderabad Airport Metro Express, there is still some mystery around the opening of the projected monorail project in Hyderabad.

The government previously established a task team to investigate the viability of the Hyderabad monorail project. The task committee included representatives from the public and private sectors.

The task of identifying cost-effective modes of transportation, such as trams and monorails, was handed to the group. It was also intended to provide financing recommendations.

There is still anxiety around the Hyderabad monorail project because no significant progress has been achieved in its debut.

Unlike metro rail, which has two tracks, a monorail only has one rail per track. The monorail is a less expensive choice than the metro rail since it occupies less area.

It not only offers a different kind of transportation, but it also facilitates last-mile connection. Moreover, the monorail can be built in fewer areas; therefore, it may be installed in various locations around Hyderabad.

Chandrashekar Rao, the chief minister of Telangana, laid the foundation stone for the Hyderabad Airport Express Metro last year.

The project will provide public transit to southern Hyderabad in addition to acting as a crucial link between the Aerocity in Adibatla and the intended Pharma City.

A particular purpose entity called Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML) was established for the 31-kilometre Airport Metro line. It is a collaborative venture between Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority, and Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL).


  1. Airport Express Metro should be a priority given the standard of our Airport and the increased flyers in the past 5years. Albeit the proposed Monorail project can neither be neglected nor be abandoned. It should be an alternative to busy routs of bus-services that emit green house gases and cause pollution. Expansion of MMTS can be a better option given the size of the city and the more proportion of population being poor and middle-class, who can hardly afford Metro or Monorail. The ultimate aim should be reducing the private transportation to least and increasing the public transportation of modern means to ensure the pollution to be under control.
