The metro trains started in Hyderabad almost five months ago but still pepole not felt happy with services with various reasons like train charges,lack of trains etc.But here is a piece of good news announced for Metro rail passengers. The L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited on Friday announced that the frequency of Metro trains would be increased from Saturday. During peak hours (8 am to 11 am) and (5 pm to 8 pm) trains will run with a frequency of 7 minutes. During non-peak hours trains will run with a frequency of 8 minutes on both Red (Miyapur to Ameerpet) and Blue (Nagole to Ameerpet) routes.

After checking the functioning of Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) system, the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS) Ram Kripal issued authorisation certificate to adopt CBTC system. This enables Metro to run trains with increased frequency and speed on Nagole to Ameerpet section of Blue line.  The Red and Blue line trains at Ameerpet Metro station will be synchronised to enable smooth and efficient passenger transfer. HMRL Managing Director NVS Reddy said: “This augurs well for Metro Rail commuters and the frequency will be further increased as per demand in future.”
