SYSTRA wins contract for airport metro line in Hyderabad, India
SYSTRA in consortium with RITES and DB has been appointed as General Consultant by Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML) for the Airport Express Metro Line.
Enhancing Mobility in a major metropolis
Hyderabad is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Telangana in the northern part of southern India and is the fourth-most populous city in the country. The Airport Express Metro Line will connect to the existing Hyderabad metro line and will help commuters travel from the city to the airport. Hyderabad has long been known for its diamond mines.
"This project is a great opportunity for us to build a strong relationship with HAML and demonstrate our Project Delivery capabilities and client-centric approach. We are pleased to be contributing to the improvement of mobility in Hyderabad."
Mumtaz Afzal , Assistant Vice President – Operations, Rail PMC
A broad scope of work
Part of Phase II of the Hyderabad Metro project, our teams in India will be involved in a very wide range of tasks for this project including a Review of the detailed project report (DPR), Preliminary Design, Tender Preparation & Procurement, Proof checking of design, Construction/ Erection/ Supervision of Civil & Systems Works, Project Scheduling, Monitoring & Reporting, System Integration, and Testing & Commissioning.
SYSTRA serves the City of Diamonds since 2012
Hyderabad has already called on SYSTRA for its metro projects. After an initial feasibility study at the end of the 1980s for RITES, where we studied routes and traffic forecasts, SYSTRA was selected by the manufacturer Larsen & Toubro from 2012 to 2016 to carry out the design studies for the city’s first three metro lines.
This network, which will be in service between 2017 and 2020, is known for being entirely viaduct-based with all its stations above ground. However, this particularity will disappear by 2026 when the airport link is inaugurated: it will include the first underground station in the network.
