Hyderabad: The TSIIC (Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation) has taken up a feasibility study for the Monorail project – proposed to connect Miyapur to Shilparamam & Gachibowli.
- TSIIC Chief General Manager K Shyam Sunder, said,” TSIIC has already floated tenders to appoint a consultant to conduct techno economic and financial feasibility of the project. We have received four bids and technical evaluation is underway. The appointment is expected to be completed by the end of this month.”
- The feasibility study will take 7 to 8 months to complete.
- The study includes traffic studies, ridership demand, collecting baseline data up to 2041, finalization of alignment & preparation of tender documents for calling tenders.
- A senior municipal administration official said,”While Hi- Tec City spreads over 151 acres of land, the adjoining places such as Gachibowli, Kondapur, Manikonda and Nanakramguda badly need a mass transport system. Under Strategic Road Development Plan (SRDP), many flyovers have been taken up by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) but they give only partial relief to the traffic congestion in the Hi-Tec City region. Mono rail is being designed to cater to the needs of all surrounding areas in Cyberabad.”
