The cities in India are growing like never before and with the expanse of every city connectivity to the different corners becomes the top-notch concern of the administration. If the city lacks the basic infrastructure, the big companies are reluctant to open their offices, and because of this, the young population of the city drains to the cities that are well connected and infrastructurally advanced. With the coming of METRO in Hyderabad, life has not been the same. The comfort, ease and convenience have doubled up, and the same now gets reflected in the quality of life of the people in the city.
Hyderabad Metro: The game-changer for the residents of the city
Second only to Delhi Metro, Hyderabad Metro covers 57stations and this project was first conceived in the year 2003 by the then CM of Andhra Pradesh Shri N. Chandrababu Naidu. To cater to the rising needs of the people of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, MMTS (Multi-Modal Transport System) was launched in August 2003. However, after much analysis and investigation on the topography, soil etc, L&T developed Hyderabad Metro Rail Project and it was on 28th November 2017 that the 30 km stretch from Miyapur to Nagole was inaugurated by the Honorable PM Shri Narendra Modi.
