Hyderabad: The MGBS interchange station of Hyderabad Metro Rail project would be one of the biggest metro rail stations in Asia once completed. The station connects corridor-1 (Miyapur-LB Nagar) and corridor-2 (JBS-Falaknuma). While Corridor-2 station is at the 3rd & 4th floor, corridor-1 station is at 1st & 2nd floor.
- Designed with 58 main pillars and 6 grids, the station has a length of 140 mtrs and width of 45 mtrs.
- For main pillars of this station, the steel reinforcement (rods) had to be made extremely dense and special techniques had to be used to pump specially reinforced cement concrete (RCC) into them during construction.
- The station has two arms, one arm catering to MGBS bus depot and the other to Chaderghat area across Musi river.
- Two big skywalks connect all the platforms of MGBS bus station on one side and the second skywalk connects Chaderghat area.
- The street level on both MGBS side and Chaderghat side is being beautified with a combination of cobblestones, Tandur and Shahbad stones to merge with the “Heritage Precinct” being developed by HMRL in the 5-km stretch between Assembly station and MGBS via Nampally, MJ Market, Jambagh, Osmania Medical College (OMC), and Rang Mahal.
