It also enables increasing the long-distance services from Hyderabad to various parts of the country. Due to rapid expansion of Hyderabad city, the suburban area has been extended to 90 Kms resulting in increase of Passengers trains//MMTS trains. These have huge impact on freight movement. To avoid cascading effects on freight trains and to provide hassle free movement over these highly saturated sections, a separate freight corridor Bypass Rail Ring Road around Hyderabad-Secunderabad-Kacheguda region is very much essential for seamless flow of traffic.
Ministry of Railways has been giving special focus towards rail development in Telangana. Over the past 9 years, the rail budget allocation to the State has been increased by almost 17 times i.e., from Rs. 258 crores in 204-15 to Rs. 4,418 crs.
