    Hyderabad Metro Rail Project
    The Larsen and Toubro (L&T), which is building the Rs. 16,375-cr Hyderabad Metro-rail Project, has speed-up the construction work and has already thrashed out most of the bottlenecks as it gets into denser parts of the city for execution. Armed with Safety Certification from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety for two sections of 8 km and 12 km, respectively, of the 72 km elevated Metro-rail Project spanning three dense corridors, efforts are currently to accelerate the pace of work over the next few quarters, Managing Director of Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd, NVS Reddy said, adding that up till now, about 68-70% of the metro works, covering 59 km of foundations, pillars in 56 km and viaduct in 47 km, have been completed and the project is in the process of completion by the end of the next year. While two sections of the elevated metro rail are ready for commissioning, it is currently looking at appropriate time for operating them. Land parcels in 17 locations have been earmarked for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), of which works are at advanced stage at a few locations, including one of the biggest in the IT hub terminal. These transit hubs will be a mix of business, commercial, and entertainment space, encouraging people to make them their routine lifestyle hubs, he added.
