Efforts have been intensified to increase the frequency of Metro services between Ameerpet – Hitec City stations with the Chief Electrical Inspector (CEIG) for Hyderabad Metro Rail, DVS Raju inspecting the Overhead Electric Traction System (OETS) between Hitec-City station and Raidurg section, here on Friday. The energisation of the OETS in this section will facilitate testing of reversal operation (upline to downline and vice versa) beyond Hitec City station, said Raju after the inspection.

Further, completion of these trials beyond Hitec City station is crucial to improve the Metro service frequency between Ameerpet and Hitec City and also to ease the peak hours rush in this section, he said. There is a lot of demand from passengers to improve train frequency in this section. In the absence of reversal facility, the services were being operated in twin single line method between Hitec City and Jubilee Hills Check Post and trains are brought to their respective up and down line directions by making use of the crossover line at Jubilee Hills Checkpost as a temporary measure.

Once the reversal comes into operation, more services could be operated for the convenience of passengers. L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer KVB Reddy said, “this is an important milestone for corridor III. We are thankful to DVS Raju for inspecting the OETS between Hitec City station to Raidurg section”

Meanwhile, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited Managing Director NVS Reddy said trial runs on the 1.5 km Hitec City to Raidurg (Mindspace station) route will be conducted for about two months. Similarly, efforts are being made to launch Metro services on Jubilee Bus station (JBS) to Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) section by December this year, he added.
