Hitech city, and the surrounding IT district in Madhapur and Kondapur areas of Hyderabad have seen unprecedented development over the last two decades, with the region attracting massive investments and companies from all over the world.
Once a non-descript suburb of Hyderabad, it has emerged as one of India’s leading centers of IT and ITES industries. The rocky terrain of IT district in Hyderabad, has not only catapulted Hyderabad as a leading IT destination in the country, but also provides lakhs of jobs to professionals, and employment opportunities to thousands of others. Despite progressing well on several fronts, connectivity, especially in terms of public transport has always remained a challenge.
Although buses ply regularly from this key region to other parts of Hyderabad, it still remained insufficient in terms of quick connectivity. The operationalization of Hyderabad Metro’s Corridor III, with the recent opening of Ameerpet to Hitech city route is a dream come true for the denizens of the city, who have been awaiting a rapid transit system like Hyderabad Metro, for a safe and comfortable commute.
The nearly 10-kilometer-long stretch which was launched in the month of March,2019 has clearly opened new vistas in terms of an effective public transport system, which is environment friendly and truly world-class. The launch of Hitech city route of Hyderabad Metro Rail, marks a new dawn in the modern history of Hyderabad city.
Already, this newly opened stretch is witnessing a record number of commuters, who are availing this service. A direct connectivity from IT district to the Eastern suburb of Uppal, in the form of Corridor III, is a boon for the denizens. Ameerpet is the interchange station, for commuters from Corridor I to switch to the Hitech city route.
A transport system like Hyderabad Metro, that reduces commuting time considerably with high-end amenities, and a host of other modern features, is a much-needed connectivity boost for the IT district in Hyderabad.
