Hyderabad: After it missed several deadlines, the 12-km Miyapur-SR Nagar and the 8-km Nagole-Mettuguda Metro Rail stretches are likely to become operational in November this year. The TRS government is planning to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate the 20-km Metro Rail network.
Hyderabad is also hosting the Global Investors’ Summit in November, which will also be attended by the Prime Minister.

The two major pending works are: Oliphant bridge and Begumpet rail over bridge....
