Hyderabad Metro Map

 Project

Hyderabad, capital of Andhra Pradesh state in India, is building a metro system, after building the newest suburban rail network of India in 2003. The project was approved by the Union Government in 2008. The total length is 66 km, extendable to 71 km.

Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited has been created specially for this project. With a population of about 7 million and considerable floating population, the city is struggling with increasing traffic congestion due to fast growing IT, ITES, pharma, and various other manufacturing and business activities. The current local train system known as the Multi Modal Transport System (MMTS) operational since 2003 runs on existing tracks meant for long-distance trains supplemented by ageing Diesel Multiple Units (DMU) locally known as push-pull trains operational since the 1980's.

Three metro lines have been planned:

1) Miyapur - L. B. Nagar - 29 km - fully elevated
2) Jubilee Bus Stand (JBS) - Falaknuma - 15 km - fully elevated
3) Nagole - Shilparamam - 28 km - fully elevated

Total Length - 72 km
