Chief Secretary today travelled in a metro from Khairathabad station to Ameerpet to oversee the safety arrangements put in place at the metro stations. He was accompanied by HMRL MD Sri N V S Reddy, L&T HMRL MD Sri K V B Reddy and other officials.
During the travel Chief Secretary interacted with the passengers and enquired about the metro services and safety measures. The commuters appreciated the facilities and safety arrangements in the metro stations. They requested the Chief Secretary to extend the timings so that they can reach their destinations comfortably after the closure of their offices and business establishments.
Chief Secretary directed to extend the services by another hour. Accordingly the last train in each direction will now leave the terminal station at 1pm instead of 11.45 am and reach the destination stations at 2pm from Tuesday.
