Hyderabad: There will not be any change in the metro rail route and the construction work will start soon. This will cover the area from Jubilee bus station to Falaknuma.
Mr. Ahmed Balala, MIM MLA of Malakpet told that Majlis is not opposing to metro rail project. The rail route will pass through Darulshifa, Purani Haveli, Mandi Meeralam, Kotla Alija, Moghalpura, Hari Bowli, Shah Ali Banda, Syed Ali Chabootra and would reach Falaknuma. An attempt was made to get the route changed from Musi River. It was argued that when rail route can be changed in Sultan Bazar area, why cannot it be changed in old city. It is estimated that Rs. 200 crore additional expenditure would be incurred and hence the route was changed.
