Hyderabad Metro Rail: Finally, ‘Metro’ trains are on their tracks, making the lives of commuters easier. Hopefully, we are not going to see those traffic snarls and the deadly pollution in Hyderabad anymore if people utilize this public transportation system. With the Prime Minister NAMO’s ‘Green Signal’, the reputed L&T’s metro started in Hyderabad from one end to the other. Now, it is convenient for the passengers to their destination avoiding traffic congestion and Pollution.

People dwelling in the twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad are very much accustomed to using RTC buses or their own vehicles so far. L & T used ‘Cantilever Model’ to make this railway system possible; that means constructing a pillar in the middle of a road and made it possible to build tracks that are accessible to various stations. This “Cantilever Model” has been challenging project for L&T, but finally received many accolades from the critics of this project as well. This Engineering model allows the vehicles to go on the road as usual and Metro trains run high-above those vehicles. So, people can catch a bus immediately after they get down from a metro rail. One more reason why L&T chose such a model is that the government need not acquire any land from people.
Since these historical twin cities don’t have the required land for this project i.e., 20 meter – wide and 140 meter – long land in many places, L& T opted out the ‘Cantilever’ model and came up with a different model in interchange stations such as Ameerpet, Parade grounds, MGBS. And this new model in these 3 congested places had already been approved by the Government considering the “Heritage Status of some buildings.” This new model in these 3 stations contains two tracks on top of the pillars; one ‘Up track’ and the other ‘Down Track.’ But when we look at the tracks from the ground level, it seems as though it is only “ONE” track.
Hyderabad Metro Rail Stations Services, Facilities for Travelers
On the way of our journey in Metro Rail, we get to see a station for every one kilometer. All those stations we come across look very decent and unique on their own. Every station has two levels, called ‘Concourse Level’ model. We can board the train via staircases, escalators, and elevators.
Senior citizens, physically challenged people can seek wheelchairs. A special category of people also has been assigned to help such people. Every station has two different exit doors. At any station we embark or disembark, we can get the facilities such as escalators and elevators.
HMRS Stations – Exploring in Detailed [Shops, Tickets, Entry, Exit]
The first level is built in two different parts. The front part is the space for the people to walk around at free of cost. In this front portion, we can shop around or we can buy tickets to go to our destination. Those people who have bought tickets or having smart cards are allowed to go to the paid area.
We can get to go to the second level from the first level after buying a ticket or holding a smart card. This is called platform level. This is absolutely a “Paid Area.” The second level is 12 meter-high (40 feet high) from the ground level. From the Entry gate to the second level and to embark our destined train, it takes only two minutes. Great!
What’s the Special About Ameerpet Railway Station? Here We Go…
We drop our jaw down when we get to know that “Ameerpet” Railway station is the biggest station in India. Ameerpet railway station has many special facilities compared to the other two interchange stations. This station got the special status in lieu of its waft and weft of its area. We can find 8 elevators and 16 escalators and staircases in this station. The entire metro area inside is air-conditioned. Studded with marble flooring, shops all around and entertainment centers; we feel like as though we are in an airport. Ameerpet interchange station is believed to have huge crowd compared to other two. Keeping this problem ahead in mind, L&T built this station where it can sustain 40 thousand people at one go.
