Hyderabad monorail project launch still under suspense 

The suspense of the launch of the monorail project goes on, as the Telangana government is currently focusing on Hyderabad Airport  

Metro Express. 

The government had previously constituted a committee to study the practicality of the monorail project. 

This committee was assigned the responsibility of finding economical transportation and funding methods. 

Monorail is a railway in which tracks consist of a single rail, which requires low space, is less expensive than the Metro and provides an alternative mode of transportation.  

Currently, monorails operate in cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune.  

Last year, Telangana CM K. Chandrashekar Rao laid a foundation for Hyderabad Airport Express Metro, which will cut the travel time from the city to the Airport to just 26 minutes. 

For the 31 km long Airport Metro corridor, a particular purpose vehicle, Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML), was built. 

It is a joint venture of Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), and the Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC).
