ABSTRACT:
Hyderabad city is a large metropolitan city in India which has a high level of population and the traffic and transportation problems are rising over the past several years. As the existing transportation modes – buses and trains – are already saturated, there is a need for developing Mass Rapid Transit Systems (MRTS). Recognizing this, the Hyderabad Metro Rail Project (HMRP) was planned to be developed as a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model in India. The HMRL project suffered from several challenges and yet it is on the verge of completion in terms of technical execution.. This paper discusses the salient technical features of the HMRP towards addressing traffic and transportation of the Hyderabad city. The technical analysis covers the details of metro rail route alignment, horizontal, vertical and cross-sectional details of structure, design of the project structures, construction methods and processes, operational arrangements etc. These features make the HMRL as perhaps one fo the well designed and developed project that has been executed with perfection.
