Information

Hyderabad Metro is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) being built to serve Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana.

Construction for Hyderabad Metro’s 72 km Phase 1 on the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model started in April 2012 by its concessionaire, L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited (LTMRHL), and ended in February 2020 when the entire Green Line opening in one go.

Work on Hyderabad Metro’s 5 km MGBS – Falaknuma section of the Green Line could never begin due to local protests in the Old City, which led to Phase 1 getting truncated at 67 kms.
