The State government has planned to build the Light Rail Transit System corridor (LRTS) from KPHB to Narsingi with a length of 25.40 km covering 10 km more than the planned EBRTS system. Among the various options of mass rapid transit systems, LRTS found to be a suitable mode of public transport as per the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). The proposed LRTS would be a self-sustainable, safe and green public transport system to provide a hassle-free journey to travellers between KPHB and Kokapet connecting Hitec City and Financial District. The Hyderabad Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (HUMTA) is the nodal agency preparing the detailed project report (DPR) on LRTS in coordination with the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) and the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) through a consultant and the final report will be submitted soon. A series of review meetings on the draft DPR were held by MAUD Special Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar with the stakeholders. The LRTS project, which will have about 24 stations, will be integrated with KPHB Metro station, Hitec City MMTS, Raidurg Metro station, HMR Metro Phase-II and AEML near Narsingi. Depot will be located at Puppalguda and Stabling Yard along Shankarpally Road where the authority is expecting a ridership of 6.40 lakh passengers per day by 2043. The LRTS will be a green public transport system and provide hassle-free journeys to travellers bringing savings due to equivalent reduction in road traffic and multiple socio-economic benefits. A reduction in the number of buses, usage of private vehicles, air pollution and increase in the speed of road-based vehicles will cause a drop in accidents, pollution and road maintenance costs.
