Phase 2 Information

63 km Hyderabad Metro Phase 2 project with an Airport Express Line is currently in the proposal stage. In February 2020, its detailed project report (DPR) with 3 new lines & extensions of existing lines was submitted to the Telangana government for approval.

The Airport Express Line’s foundation stone was laid by Telangana’s Chief Minister on December 9, 2022. The project is expected to cost Rs. 6,250 crore and will be executed by Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML).

As per the latest plan revealed by Hyderabad Metro’s MD, the Phase 2 project will include 4 elevated corridors – 1 new line and 3 extensions of the existing lines built in the 67 km Phase 1 project. It hasn’t been finalized whether this phase will be developed on the EPC method or on the PPP (Public-Private Partnership) route.

  • Estimated Cost: Rs. 8453 crore (Pending Route Finalization & Approval)
  • Phase 2 Deadline: Not Finalized (Pending Route Finalization & Approval)
  • My Completion Estimate: 2030 (no sooner, if approved by state government in 2023)
