This acts as a major step forward in enhancing the rail connectivity between Hyderabad City and major cities such as Mahabubnagar, Kurnool, Anantapur, Bengaluru, Kadapa, Tirupati etc., towards south. The project is being executed by the Railway PSU, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL).

Now, with the completion of the 29.7 kms stretch between Shadnagar – Gollapalli, the continuous stretch between Secunderabad - Gollapalli for a distance of 88 Kms will have double line facility. The works in the balance portion between Gollapalli - Mahabubnagar for a distance of 25 Kms are progressing well and nearing completion.

All the five existing stations in Umdanagar – Shadnagar section viz., Umdanagar, Timmapur, Kottur Halt, HBL Nagar Halt and Shadnagar have been developed and provided with essential passenger amenities.

He advised the RVNL authorities and Hyderabad Division to gear up for completion of the remaining stretch of this project i.e., Gollapalli – Mahabubnagar in order to have easy access towards down South.
