Hyderabad Metro: With Phase-I complete, the city now boasts India’s second-biggest Metro network

Touted as the world’s largest public-private partnership (PPP) project in the Metro sector, the Hyderabad Metro became the second largest Metro network in India (69.2 km) when the 11-km-long Corridor-II connecting the twin cities of Secunderabad and Hyderabad was flagged off recently. The launch of the Green Line marked the completion of Phase-I of the city’s Metro project.

Linking Jubilee Bus Station (JBS) to Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS), the Green Line with 9 stations is expected to reduce travel time between the two destinations to just 16 minutes from the 45 minutes it takes by road. Comprising three corridors—Red Line or Corridor-I from LB Nagar to Miyapur (29 km), Green Line or Corridor-II from JBS-MGBS (11 km) and Blue Line or Corridor-III from Nagole to Raidurg (29 km) – Phase-I of the project has been executed by the L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Ltd (LTMRHL), a special purpose vehicle (SPV) set up to implement it on a Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer (DBFOT) basis.
