Hyderabad: Hitec City Metro Rail trains would be run in “twin single line method” in which trains will function on double line railway track as two separate single lines. There will be two drivers operating the Metro. Since the train reversal facility beyond Hitec City will take a few more months for completion, each railway line works as an independent single line and trains are operated in both up and down directions.

The Metro Rail commenced trial runs from Hitec City to Ameerpet on Thursday. Speaking on the occasion, HMRL Managing Director N.V.S. Reddy said, “This technique is used by many railways in the world including Indian Railways under some special circumstances. It will be followed till the train reversal facility beyond Hitec City station is completed.”

 

He said the conventional railway signalling systems and the highly sophisticated communication-based train control (CBTC) system of Hyderabad Metro Rail permitted this type of twin single line train operation.

The stretch between Ameerpet and Hitec City is 10-km-long with eight stations — Madhuranagar (Taruni), Yousufguda, Jubilee Hills Road No.5, Jubilee Hills check post, Peddammagudi, Madhapur, Durgam Cheruvu and Hitec City.

A team of technical experts and engineers led by Mr N.V.S. Reddy and L&TMRHL managing director K.V.B. Reddy travelled on the train on this stretch and observed various critical parameters and performance during the trial run. Trial runs will be conducted for about a month to complete all mandatory tests to start metro passenger services to Hitec City.
