Telangana government and Hyderabad metro authority are taking practical steps towards solving a long-standing commuting issue at the Raidurg-Shamshabad airport extension

The government is now planning to expand the metro rail network from Raidurg to the Shamshabad airport via Nanakramguda and Rajendra Nagar. This has been pending since a long ago on approval. At last, the government later approved and the total cost would be around 6000 crores at the primary estimate.

How this stretch will benefit the commuters and how can it solve the service problems?

At present people can only travel on the road and the total distance covered is about 28kms. It takes almost 1 to 2 hours in commuting just to reach the airport. With this alternative, people now can travel within 20 minutes on a peaceful journey without traffic congestion.

However, this might take as long as 1 year to complete the tenders and the due diligence. And additionally, 3 years to build the complete railway network

 This is completely funded by the state government

Length and the places benefitting

As per the information, the proposed stretch is around 33 kilometers and directly connects to the airport terminals.

A 2.5 km stretch near the airport is elevated underground.

Lease holding might be taken from the HMDA for about 100 to 150 acres but this plan is still under consideration.

Metro stops as per the proposed Detailed project report.

1km to the Biodiversity park

Nanakramguda 2.5kms

Narsingi 3kms

TS police academy 5kms

Rajendra Nagar 3.5kms

Shamshabad 5kms

Airport cargo station 3kms

Through this initiative, the commute between the two places and in between will be completely changed. There is rapid growth in both the development and population of Hyderabad. The future will see Hyderabad competing not only against India’s top metropolitan cities but with world cities as well.
