Hyderabad: The expected opening of MMTS Phase-II by the year end will reduce travel time on major corridors in the city between Alwal and Se-cunderabad, Secunderabad and Ghatkesar and from Hitec City to Pocharam. This may lead to an improvement in the overall traffic speed in the city, with road users switching to the Metro Rail in the coming weeks. With MMTS-II extending existing services, it is expected that journey time would also be reduced on the Lingampally-Patancheru and BHEL-Patancheru routes.

MMTS-II has six major corridors — Secunderabad-Ghatkesar via Moulali, Secunderabad-Medchal via Bolaram, Falanuma-Shamshabad via Umdanagar, Moulali-Sanathnagar, Moulali-Sitaphalmandi and Tellapur-Ramachandrapuram. South Central Railway General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav had earlier said MMTS service on the Secunderabad-Ghatkesar line would begin by the end of December this year.

 

Traffic police says this service will attract commuters taking the Secunderabad-Moulali, Secunderabad-Alwal, Secunderabad-Ghatkesar and Hitec City-Pocharam routes and ease traffic pressure on the roads. “MMTS services on the other corridors that will commence next year will free up roads in the city and even on the outskirts between  Lingampally, Patancheru and BHEL-Patancheru and Hyderabad-Shamshabad, an official said. This would reduce journey time on the roads,” he said.
