High-speed train for Hyderabad Airport Metro.
The proposed Hyderabad Airport Metro Rail to link Raidurg to the International Airport at Shamshabad over 30.7 km is going to be a high-speed one with trains to clock speeds of up to 100 kmph so that it can reach the destination in 20 minutes flat, changing the entire gamut of commuting in the twin cities.
This is the second phase of the metro rail project which will, in a sense, be unique in several ways in comparison to the first phase of the 72-km metro rail under construction across the three corridors of the capital.
The first phase of Hyderabad Metro Rail — connecting Miyapur to L.B. Nagar (29 km), Corridor One, Jubilee Bus Station (JBS) to Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (9 km), Corridor Two, and Nagole to Hi-Tec City/Raidurg (28 km), Corridor Three, — is totally elevated with a station for every kilometre.
Though capable of moving up to 80 kmph, metro trains are usually run up to 35 kmph. Airport metro or ‘Airport Express’, however, is going to be a super quick suburban train with limited halts between Raidurg, the interchange station, and the airport. “Technology for airport metro is different from the metro run in the heart of the city but less complicated with trains capable of clocking speed of 135 kmph.
