Minister for municipal administration and urban development K.T. Rama Rao on Friday said the Hyderabad Metro Rail is poised to meet all connectivity deadlines in 2018.

He said that Miyapur-LB Nagar stretch will be opened in June/July followed by Nagole-Hitec City stretch in August/September and JBS Secunderabad-MGBS Gowliguda stretch by December-end.

Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, Mr Rama Rao said, “Hyderabad Metro Rail is doing remarkably well over the Metros in other cities.”Our Metro is transporting nearly 60,000

passengers per day. This is significantly higher when compared with other Metros that have been witnessing about 15,000 commuters per day though it was launched much before than ours. This proves our Metro is a success but some vested interests are resorting to malicious campaign against Hyderabad Metro saying that it is not attracting passengers and it's a flop."

He said the government will focus on extending three Metro corridors to Shamshabad International Airport soon after entire 72-km stretch is completed by this December-end.
