Hyderabad: Quicker Metro ride may soon take you to airport in just 20 minutes at 120 kph

Published Date:

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will on December 9 lay the groundwok for the Metro Rail Airport Express Corridor in a major infrastructure push. The Metro Rail’s Airport Express Corridor is a 31-km high-speed link which connects Mindspace Junction and Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Shamshabad. This move will come as a big relief to city commuters and airport passengers.

Airport in just 20 minutes @120 kph

The high-speed Hyderabad Airport Metro (HAML) service will reportedly cost Rs 6,250 crore. When it commences, the trains will cover the distance in a matter of just 20 minutes. Like the rest of the city, it will be mostly elevated but will include a 2.5 km underground section.

Municipal administration and urban development minister KT Rama Rao announced the project on Twitter. “Hyderabad is Forging Ahead. Happy to announce that Hon’ble CM KCR Garu will be laying the foundation for Airport Express Metro on 9th December. This project starting at Mindspace junction to Shamshabad Airport will be 31 KM long & will be costing approximately ₹6,250 Cr (sic),” he wrote.

The airport line will be a part of the proposed 58-km Hyderabad Metro Phase II project. The Telangana government approved the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Phase II in February 2020, which included three new lines and extensions of existing lines. As to the plan, the Phase II project will consist of three elevated corridors or extensions of existing lines in the 67 km-long Phase 1 project.

 The proposed Miyapur to Lakdikapul Red Line corridor, which will be built at a cost of Rs 8453 crore, will pass through BHEL, Kondapur, Gachibowli, Raidurg, Mehdipatnam and Masab Tank. Some of these areas are not yet covered by Metro Rail. Raidurg would then become an important point with the airport line.

The Blue Line will perate from Biodiversity Junction, Nanakramguda, Narsingi, TS Police Academy, Rajendranagar, Shamshabad, RGIA Freight Unit and RGIA Passenger Terminal.

The Blue Line will run across the Outer Ring Road (ORR) through Gachibowli and Himayatsagar. The missing link between Nagole and LB Nagar will be completed with another part of the Blue Line.
