Hyderabad: The Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) Phase II would get operational from December 2017 and the 75-km project would be commissioned in its entirety by 2018, said SCR new general manager Vinod Kumar Yadav.
Briefing the media at Charlapalli station here on Tuesday during a media tour between Secunderabad-Charlapalli-Ghatkesar, he said the completion of the MMTS Phase II is a top priority along with safety of rail passengers.
About 45-km length with 15-km track linking has been completed.The contentious 3.85 km defence land issue at Suchitra centre and 0.20 km
defence land at Bhudevi Nagar-Ammuguda is sorted out and the Local Military Authority is waiting for an official letter from the Central government. With land acquisition in major corridors complete and the remaining land issues at the end stage, the MMTS Phase II work is going to speed up.
In December, Telapur-Ramchandrapuram corridor would start operations followed by Secunderabad-Moula Ali-Ghatkesar, said the general manager.
“The connectivity to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) is under discussion with the Ministry of Civil Aviation. We are hopeful that it would come through,” said the general manager. Out of the 10 acres land to be acquired, seven acres has already been acquired and the balance land is in advance stage of acquisition process, said Yadav.
The MMTS- Phase II services will cover Secunderabad-Moula Ali-Ghatkesar, Secunderabad-Bolarum-Medchal, Falaknuma-Umdanagar-Shamshabad Airport (Railways submitted sketch showing terminal station and consent from GMR is awaited), Moula Ali-Sanatnagar, Moula Ali-Malkajgiri-Sitafalmandi and Telapur-Ramchandrapuram stretches.
Five new stations
Five new stations are being constructed on Moula Ali-Sanatnagar route at Ferozguda, Suchitra Centre, Bhudevi Nagar, Neredmet and Moula Ali HB Colony. Three stations, namely Telapur, BHEL and Ramchandrapuram will be restored on Telapur-Ramchandrapuram section.
The MMTS-Phase II project was sanctioned in 2012-13 at an estimated cost of Rs 817 crore. The project is being done on cost sharing basis with the state government contributing 2/3rd of the cost. Till date, the Telangana government released just Rs 60 crore. Railway officials said that they are in talks with the state government for the release of Rs 160 crore in this financial year.
New terminal at Cherlapally
A new terminal at Cherlapally has been sanctioned and would be developed at a cost of Rs 80 crore. Six new platforms would be developed. The SCR general manager said the Railways has 50 acres of land and has put in a request for 150 acres from the state government. He met the Telangana State Chief secretary last week in this regard.

HYDERABAD: After a wait of four years, a part of Phase II of the Multi-Model Transport System (MMTS) is finally set to see light of the day by the end of this year. Vinod Kumar Yadav, general manager, South Central Railway, announced on Tuesday that the 5.75 km long Tellapur-R C Puram stretch will be the first in Phase II to get operational by December 2017. Subsequently, the entire project will be rolled out by December 2018.
On Tuesday, Yadav, who has recently taken charge, took mediapersons on a tour of the ongoing work being carried out on the Secunderabad-Moula Ali-Cherlapally-Ghatkesar section.
96.25 km, the Phase II project is spread across six routes. The total cost of the project is Rs 817 crore. This will be shared between the state government (it is supposed to pay two-thirds of the cost) and the SCR authorities.
Being implemented by the Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), this phase of the venture is still ridden with a few roadblocks. Among them is the issue of building a station at the Shamshabad airport -- a proposition being opposed tooth and nail by the airport authorities. There is also the issue of acquiring defence land along the Sanathnagar-Moula Ali stretch. In both cases, central ministries (civil aviation and defence) have now intervened to resolve the crisis.
"We have already taken up the issue with the concerned ministry and are hopeful of sorting out hurdles at the earliest," the newly sworn-in general manager said. He also confirmed that the MMTS connectivity to Yadadri - which too was on hold for a while --- has been sanctioned and the final location survey now is complete. "Tenders will be invited by April 20," he said.
On the issue of developing the Cherlapally station as a 'satellite terminal' - which will help decongest the traffic, of both long-distance and MMTS trains - he said that SCR has sought 150 acres of land from the state government for the same. The new terminal will be armed with six platforms and additional passenger/maintenance facilities. The project is expected to cost Rs 80 crore.
"The satellite terminal is meant to lessen the burden on Secunderabad railway station. Works in this regard have already been commenced. SCR has identified 50 acres of land and is in discussion with the state to acquire another 150 acres," he added.
Further, on the sidelines of the tour, Yadav pointed out that "safety" of passengers would be a prime area of focus for his team, during his tenure. He also stressed on improved mobility and punctuality. "SCR is according top priority to safety. Drives have been initiated to check railway tracks and rolling stock, including coaches and wagons," he said. He also mentioned that a new system for employee redressal has been put in place where a staff member can directly approach the general manager, if the grievance remains unresolved for a month.

Thats a welcome move. They can make a bigger bus terminal at Patancheru near by this station and can terminate some of the buses from Karnataka, Maharasatra side. It helps to control traffic also.

I guess, Secunderabad (SC) will be even more congested with SC - MLY - Cherlapally- Ghatkesar line. Important, passing through & RSA trains might not terminate at Charlapally. Only weekly trains might terminate. Tellapur - RC Puram is welcome.

If they can create terminal at RC puram, then some train can be extended to RC to decongest the SC.

HYDERABAD: A slightly modified plan for the second phase of Multi-Modal Transit System (MMTS) seeking to connect Patancheru with the city on one side and Ghatkesar on the other, has been accepted by the State Government.
The lines that have been cleared towards strengthening the MMTS services include Secunderabad-Medchal (28 km), Falaknuma-International Airport, Shamshabad (20 km) and Secunderabad-Ghatkesar (19 km).
It has also been decided to revive the 8-km abandoned line between Tellapur, further down Lingampally, and Patancheru. This would mean extension of the MMTS services up to Patancheru.
of lines
It was also decided to strengthen the line between Moulali and Sanathnagar and also the one connecting Kachiguda with Moulali. Apart from MMTS services, these two lines would help in decongestion of the Secunderabad station by allowing diversion of goods trains.
Once the bypass of Kachiguda-Moulali and Sanathnagar-Moulali are strengthened, goods services running from Vijayawada, Delhi and Kolkata to Mumbai will be diverted on these routes and avoid having to enter the Secunderabad yard, says N.V.S.Reddy, MMTS Project Director.
The revival of Tellapur-Patancheru tracks would mean extending the service to one of the busiest city outskirts on tracks that have been lying idle for a long time after the railways abandoned a failed sub-urban service to Patancheru.
On the Secunderabad-Ghatkesar route, there are two lines at present and the proposal envisages adding a third line for the MMTS service.
This new proposed networking of MMTS would comprise six lines at an estimated cost of Rs. 325 crores. The budget would be split between the State Government and the Railways with the former contributing Rs. 217 crores.
Mr.Reddy said the MMTS trains have started drawing more commuters in the last few months with the number of users going up by almost 1,000 each month. "On an average, about 34,000 commuters are using the service every day," he said. A review of the service was done at a meeting in which the South Central Railways General Manager, D.N.Mathur, also took part on Thursday. The proposal on the second phase which received the approval of the Chief Minister, Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy would now be sent to the Railway Board, Mr.Reddy said.

RVNL gives green signal to MMTS connectivity to RGIA
Hyderabad: Decks have finally been cleared for rail connectivity to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport as the Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) found the location for a new terminal railway station proposed by GMR authorities on its land feasible.
The airport connectivity is part of phase II
works of Multi Modal Transport System (MMTS) totaling Rs 819 crore. RVNL had carried out a feasibility survey a week ago to determine the alignment for the new line with Umdanagar railway station. The rail authorities were concerned about the steep left-bending curve as one approaches the airport and wanted to determine if an MMTS train can negotiate the curve to enter the airport area. “An MMTS train can negotiate an eight degree curve easily but the curve near the approach road of the airport is steeper. We were earlier not sure if the proposed location of the railway station could be aligned with the existing Kurnool railway line owing to the sharp bend,” a railway official said, adding that the survey has ruled out such concerns by establishing alignment feasibility.
Officials said that around 20 to 30 acres would be required for the terminal railway station on the airport land. The proposed location of the station is between the Haj Terminal and the compound wall close to the national highway on the western side of the airport terminal.
The 6.5-km new line from Umdanagar to airport is expected to come up at a cost of Rs 50 crore. RVNL plans to lay the new line from Umdanagar to the airport, parallel to the existing Kurnool line but the new line will branch away towards the airport at the start of the approach road.
When contacted, RVNL chief project manager, P Sreenivas said that they will hold a joint meeting with GMR and the state government to finalize execution plan.
