The second largest operational metro network in the country, after Delhi Metro, the Hyderabad Metro is charting a new success story. A project that has overcome several hurdles and challenges, today the rapid transit system is becoming an integral part of the city’s lifestyle, culture and ethos.
The three corridors of Hyderabad Metro, under Phase 1 crisscross the major traffic corridors of Hyderabad city, with a footfall of more than 4 lakh passengers every day. The corridor 1 of Hyderabad metro from LB Nagar to Miyapur is also designated as Red Line.
This stretch spanning a distance of 29 kilometers, with 27 stations has redefined connectivity in the city, linking the distant suburbs namely LB Nagar and Miyapur. What was once a grueling journey of more than 1 hour 45 minutes, today the same distance is being covered in only 45 minutes.
This corridor passes through some of the key business, commercial, transport, educational and industrial hubs of the city like Dilsukhnagar, MGBS, Nampally, Lakdi-ka-pul, Khairatabad, Ameerpet, SR Nagar, Erragadda, Balanagar, Kukatpally etc. The rapid expansion of the city over the last three decades has necessitated the need for an ultra-modern, world-class transport like metro which has not only turned a dream into reality but is also making impressive strides with its reliable and safe services.
The project has also contributed for a notable rise in terms of the property values along its route, which is a win-win advantage for the denizens of the city. A journey through congested lanes and traffic jams, pollution etc., is now a thing of the past.
While LB Nagar is a gateway to South East Telangana and Coastal AP, Miyapur connects the northern part of the Telangana state through the national highways. Quick connectivity along this route, is a great endeavor that has been only possible with the advent of a project of scale like the Hyderabad Metro. The successful operations have titled the scale in favor of the metro, with more commuter patronage and constant improvisation of services.
