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.

The joint venture partners, who have been awarded this prestigious project, have deposited the requisite Performance Guarantee amount with M/s Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) a few days back. With this, decks have been cleared to launch the field works o­n this project.
Shri P.K.Srivastava, General Manager/SCR conducted a high level review meeting at Rail Nilayam today i.e. 14th July, 2014, o­n the progress of the Railway projects taken up by RVNL o­n the Zone. Shri P.Srinivas, Chief Project Manager/RVNL,
Secunderabad briefed the General Manager o­n the present status of various key Railway works under taken by RVNL.
o­n this occasion, Shri Srivastava emphasized that there shall be no further delay in commencing the work o­n MMTS phase-II as this project is critical in strengthening the Railway infrastructure in twin cities. He also stressed o­n close co-ordination between RVNL and the Divisional/Zonal Railway authorities to ensure the works progress at a brisk pace for their expeditious completion. The progress achieved vis-à-vis the set targets shall be reviewed constantly at the highest levels, he directed the officials involved in this project.

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.
