HMRL's drone survey for Old City Metro route

The Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMRL) announced the commencement of a drone survey in the Old City with the intention of collecting accurate information for the Metro Rail alignment and property evaluation. The main objective of this survey was to precisely assess properties designated for acquisition and those influenced by the road expansion between Darulshifa Junction and Shalibanda Junction, as well as for the creation of metro stations, according to HMRL's managing director NVS Reddy.

One of the significant hurdles encountered in metro construction was the existence of 103 religious and other sensitive structures. This included 21 mosques, 12 temples, 12 Ashoor Khanas, 33 dargahs, seven cemeteries, and six chillas. It was emphasized that the drone survey would have a pivotal role in formulating engineering strategies to safeguard these structures.

The strategic planning for the metro alignment and pillar placements was aimed at minimizing any adverse effects on these delicate locations, as conveyed by him. Apart from the current MGBS station, the metro route spanning 5.5 km in the Old City was intended to include four new stations: Salarjung Museum, Charminar (situated roughly 500 meters from these two renowned monuments), Shalibanda, and Falaknuma.
