Warangal to get Metro Neo Rail Lines, Sends DPR to Central Government

HYDERABAD: The Telangana government mulls to develop Metro Neo project over a distance of 15.5 km, connecting three cities of Warangal, Hanamkonda and Kazipet. Prepared by the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha Metro) in Hyderabad, the detailed project report (DPR) of the metro has been sent to the ruling TRS Government, for authorization. 

The government also plans to take up an Elevated Bus Rapid Transit System (Metro Neo) project in Hyderabad. The project on KPHB-Financial District-Kokapet corridor is planned in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.

A combination of at-grade (7.1 km) and elevated system (8.4 km) alignment with 21 stations connecting Warangal and Kazipet railway stations via Hanamkonda was finalised, says the annual report of the Department of Municipal Administration and Urban Development for 2020-21.

Metro Neo, also known as Metrolite, is a light rail (LRT) urban transit system being planned in India for cities with lower ridership projection with the needs of metro systems. The Metro Neo project would cater to lower passenger capacity at a reduced cost than a metro line in big cities with maximum population.

According to the report, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has taken up construction of skywalks at two locations in Hyderabad - Mehdipatnam and Uppal. The skyways, which are estimated to cost Rs 61.80 crore, are targeted to complete by the end of November 2021.
