He reviewed the ongoing metro rail work, said the metro rail should be available to people travelling by major railway and bus stations. The metro rail should connect the airport with Falaknuma and Rayadurgam localities, he suggested.
The metro rail in Hyderabad should be useful not just for the residents but also those visiting the city and the rail and air passengers, KCR added. The acceptance of proposal by L & T is not known yet. He noted that the metro work, which began in March 2012, is going on as expected and is scheduled to be completed by April 2017.
