Hyderabad: The frequency of metro trains on the 30km Nagole-Miyapur stretch of Hyderabad Metro is likely to be increased in a few days with the mandatory inspection by CMRS (Commissioner Metro Rail Safety) on the Mettuguda-Ameerpet stretch completed on Tuesday. Currently, the Metro rail services are being operated in manual mode between Mettuguda & Ameerpet.
- After the CMRS nod, the stretch will be operated in CBTC (Communication Based Train Control), which will facilitate in increasing the train frequency.
- L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad (LTMRHL) is operating a train for around 8 minutes between Miyapur & Ameerpet, and for about 15 minutes between Nagole & Ameerpet.
- An official from LTMRHL said, the train frequency was likely to be increased to 8 minutes on the Nagole-Ameerpet, following the CMRS clearance.
- Already, metro authorities have completed the required testing for operating the services in CBTC mode on nearly 6 km long Mettuguda- Ameerpet stretch and are awaiting the clearance from CMRS, which is expected to be announced shortly.
