    Hyderabad Metro Rail operations put off for next year
    It’s now official. Commissioning of the Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) project will only happen either in March ( ‘Ugadi’) or June (Telangana Formation Day anniversary) next year .

    “A 20-km stretch — Nagole to Mettuguda (8 km) and Miyapur to S.R.Nagar (12 km) is ready for operations having obtained safety certification but opening isolated stretches will not ease traffic problems and is not viable,” disclosed HMR managing director N.V.S. Reddy on Tuesday.

    Mr. Reddy indicated that efforts were on to bring the Miyapur -S.R. Nagar stretch completed up to Khairatabad (Corridor One - Miyapur to L.B.Nagar) bypassing the Ameerpet interchange station since the construction of the two-level complex could take some more time and may be completed by mid next year. Similarly, if railway permissions come soon, the Nagole to Mettuguda (Corridor Three - Nagole to Hi-Tec City/Raidurg) line could be extended up to Prakashnagar near Begumpet.

    VIJAYAWADA, November 11, 2016
    French, German delegations discuss metro rail project
    STAFF REPORTER

    A six-member delegation comprising the top brass of the French development financial institution AFD (Agence Francaise Development) and the German bank KfW met Krishna District Collector Babu A. and Municipal Commissioner G. Veerapandian here on Thursday and discussed the modalities of the implementation of the metro rail project in Vijayawada.
    The French team comprised Rima Le Coguic (Head of Transport Division), Mathieu Verdure (Transport Division) and Hervé Dubreuil (Deputy Director, AFD, Delhi) and the German delegation was represented by Usha Rao (Senior Sector Specialist) Robert Valkovic (Principal Project Manager) and Julia Scholtes (Program Manager).

    Mr. Babu said 69 acres was to be acquired for the project and that the government was ready to make the payments. Metro railway alignment design was drafted in the purview of 11 villages in Vijayawada urban and rural mandals. The Collector informed the visitors how land had been acquired for the linking of Krishna and Godavari rivers and compensation was paid to the owners of land taken over for the construction of the Durga flyover.
    Amaravati Metro Rail Corporation (AMRC) Managing Director N.P. Ramakrishna Reddy said land acquisition was going on at a brisk pace and due credit for it should go to the concerted efforts made by the district administration.
    Mr. Veerapandian gave a presentation on the Smart City pilot project being implemented by CISCO, replacement of conventional street lights with LED lights and other initiatives. AMRC Project Director Radhakrishna Reddy and District Revenue Officer Ch. Rangaiah were among those present.

    Different countries are doing feasibility studies across various HSR projects in india. Spain/indian Consortium is doing Delhi-Kolkata line, does that mean spain will get the contract in the end?

    They have been allocated different sectors. They will do analysis on their own and submit initial reports to say if HST is a viable project. Subsequently EPC contracts will be issued (in all likelihood to same country that has carried out the study project).
    Common denominator to all this is that Standard gauge will be used on all projects as against current Broad gauge
