HYDERABAD: In a move that finally clears the decks for the 30-km Miyapur to Nagole flagoff of the much awaited Hyderabad Metro Rail, the Commission of Railway Safety (CRS) on Monday gave L&T Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (LTHMRL) the green light to operate the stretch between SR Nagar and Mettuguda.

L&T officials said they got the clearance to inaugurate the entire 30-km stretch after a team of officials from the CRS, led by commissioner of railway safety (south central circle), Ram Kripal, inspected the Hyderabad Metro Rail works over three days.

L&T officials said they got the clearance to inaugurate the entire 30-km stretch after a team of officials from the CRS, led by commissioner of railway safety (south central circle), Ram Kripal, inspected the Hyderabad Metro Rail works over three days.

 The CRS team, which was in the city from November 17 to 19, inspected the civil works, tracks, Rail Over Bridge (RoB), viaducts, stations, electricals, signalling and train control systems, telecommunication, rolling stock and other systems of the Hyderabad Metro Rail, and also conducted speed trials.
An elated municipal administration minister KT Rama Rao tweeted late in the evening: “Happy to announce that Commissioner of Metro Rail Safetycleared 10-km stretch from Mettuguda to SR Nagar. All statutory clearances in place now for Hyderabad Metro. All set for launch now.”
So far, the Hyderabad Metro Rail had clearances only for operating the 8-km Nagole-Mettuguda and the 12-km Miyapur-SR Nagar stretches on the 30-km Miyapur-Nagole corridor, with the 10-km Mettuguda-SR Nagar stretch being the crucial missing link. While L&T secured the safety clearance for the Nagole-Mettuguda stretch in April 2016, it got the nod for the Miyapur-SR Nagar stretch in August 2016.
