Hyderabad Metro Rail Managing Director NVS Reddy, accompanied by Cyberabad DCP (Traffic) Avinash K Mohanty and structural design engineers of L&TMRHL and HMR, assessed the extended stretch of about 2.4 km between Hitec City metro station and Raidurg terminal station in Hyderabad on Saturday.
Emancipating the location of about 70 metro pillars and two stations - Cyber Gateway Metro Station and Raidurg Terminal, N V S Reddy instructed the design engineers of L&TMRHL that the Metro pillars should not reduce the accessible road carriage way and they should be located either on the central median or at the fringes of the road. The pillars of all portal structures shall be designed in such a way that one column is in the central median portion and another column is to the edge of the road.
The location and seat of pillars near Hitec City flyover are changed in such a way that the pillars will be now at the boundary of the flyover and do not impede traffic flows on the carriage way. L&TMRHL will pay special attention in designing Metro foundations and pillars keeping abreast standards of road safety in consideration. The design of Raidurg Metro station and Metro pillars from Raidurg station to Cyber Gateway station would also facilitate construction of the proposed underpass and flyover planned by GHMC at Mindspace Jn.
