The Hyderabad Metro Rail will have an underground route of 3 km connecting passengers to the terminal. The entire metro route proposed from Mindspace to airport will be elevated.
The metro works on the airport route, including the underground route of 3 km, will start in a few months after it gets permissions and clearances from the government. It is learned that the ‘Airport Express Metro Corridor‘ will be built about 31 km towards IT corridor before passing through Nanakramguda, Narsingi, TS police academy and Shamshabad to reach the airport station.
The estimated cost of the project is Rs 5,000 crore and is waiting for the permission from government to call for financial and technical bids. It is yet to be known if it is run by government or constructed under the public, private, partnership (PPP) mode.
