Telangana Cabinet approves ₹ 60,000 crore metro expansion plan

Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao on Monday said that the state Cabinet has approved ₹ 60,000 crore plan for Metro rail expansion.

KTR said, “Telangana Cabinet has approved ₹ 60,000 crore plan for Metro rail expansion. This project is expected to be completed in 3-4 years. We are hoping that the central government will support us in this project as it did in other states. We will be happy if they help us. However, even if they don’t, the state government has decided to take up the project on its own. Even if this (central) government doesn’t help, a coalition government will be formed after 2024 in which BRS will play a key role and we hope that it will help us.”

He said that on the Adilabad – Nagpur route, the Cabinet has cleared the extension of Metro from Patny station connecting the ORR at Kandlakoya.

“Since this extension involved defence lands, the State government would pursue the matter with the Centre for procuring lands. The other corridor to be developed is between Isnapur and Miyapur and later from Miyapur to Lakdikapul. On the Vijayawada route, the Metro would be extended from LB Nagar to Pedda Amberpet. On the Warangal route, it would be extended from Uppal to Bibi Nagar. On the Mahabubnagar route, another Metro line would be extended from Shamshabad to Shadnagar via Kothur. In addition to this, there would be a Metro line connecting Uppal and ECIL crossroads. We will also finish the Old City Metro line parallelly. We are also planning for a Metro line along the entire stretch of ORR, spanning over 159 km as there is no need for land acquisition along the ORR,” he further said.
