PostHeaderIcon MMTS Phase-2 works to be started by end of August 2013

10 Years of long waiting is coming to an end. The most awaiting Project MMTS Phase -2 work is likely to be started by end of August 2013. 6 tenders have been submitted for the prestigious project. L&T and GMR are the popular among the bidders who filed the tenders for the Second phase.

MMTS Second Phase

Initially GMR has opposed the inclusion of the line between Umdanagar and Shamshabad Airport which comes around 6.5 KMs. Hence this route has been removed from MMTS Second Phase works.

Total estimated cost of MMTS Second Phase is around Rs. 641 crores and the phase-II will be conducted in two phases. First phase is costing around Rs. 360 crores. State Government has to bear 66% (2/3) of the total cost while the remaining will be borne by the railways.The proposed project is to be completed in 3 years.

The First Phase of this work has been divided in to 3 parts. Including quadrupling of track for the sections between Ghatkesar-Moula Ali and patch doubling between Moula Ali-Seethaphalmandi (Part-I). Doubling between Sanathnagar-Moula Ali, restoration of track between Telapur-Ramachandrapuram (Part-II) and doubling between Medchal-Bolarum and Falaknuma-Umdanagar (Part-III).

Even though the tenders are being finalized for MMTS Phase-II, GHMC is in dilemma to release the funds for Rs.641 crore project. RVNL has sought for 60 crores as the state government share for this current financial year, but GHMC has only released Rs.10 Crores as of now. These funds will no longer sufficient as the Railways trying to finish of at least Rs. 100 crore work in this current year 2013.

Railway officials are reported unhappy with the way funds are being released from GHMC, on other side union railway ministry has released Rs.30 crores already for the proposed project. We hope that these fund issues get resolved soon and the most awaiting project should start.
