Hyderabad: A day after deciding to impose a fine on people who would take the seats of woman passengers, the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) authorities decided to impose a fine of Rs 500 on people who cross the Metro Rail tracks to get onto the other side of the station.
Metro trains are now running at a high speed and increased frequency and therefore crossing the rail tracks is very dangerous for passengers said MD, HMR, NVS Reddy in a press note here on Wednesday. Fatal accidents have occurred in similar incidents in some other Metros, he pointed out. Trespassing / crossing rail tracks is punishable offence under Metro Act with up to Rs 500 penalty and 6 months of imprisonment, he warned.
Few such incidences have been observed where passengers crossed the rail track to go to other platform. He advised everyone not to do so and instead use lift, escalator, staircase to go down to concourse level to go to the right platform.Close

Hyderabad Metro Rail and L T Metro Rail Hyderabad are mulling options to run metro trains up to HiTec City from Ameerpet towards December-end after it has become clear that the reverse viaduct construction will go on till March 2019.
Senior metro rail officials indicated that it is “technically possible” to run metro trains even if the ‘reverse viaduct’ is not ready as the twin tracks, electrification and overhead stations could well be ready till HiTec City station by then.
Reverse viaduct is necessary to move trains forward from HiTec City and bring them back onto the other side of the platform. As its construction is going to take time, a possible solution is to make use of the track interchange available at Jubilee Hills Checkpost station.
Metro trains will run normally from Nagole to Ameerpet under Corridor Three (Nagole to HiTec City/Raidurg 28 km), but after that, one train can be sent on the first track and once it crosses into the second track at Jubilee Hills Checkpost station, another train can be sent.
In the return direction from HiTec City too, trains can change tracks at Jubilee Hills Checkpost and reach Ameerpet when normal operations could be resumed. But, this is a complicated exercise and metro rail officials will be exercising extreme caution with manual signalling likely to be at work.Close
