The Central government is keen on implementing metro rail project in Andhra Pradesh. Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Guntur, Tenali are being considered for the metro rail project, according to Union Urban Development Ministry Secretary Sudhir Krishna. Dr. Krishna and his team visited Vijayawada, Guntur and Tenali on Wednesday.
Dr. Krishna said the metro rail would be a circuit transport system which would connect Vijayawada, Guntur and Tenali cities. The project could be completed in 3 to 4 years covering a distance 20 to 25 km. The idea was to provide mass transport system in the cities to ease the ever-growing traffic. The metro rail would stop at every 1-km.
