Inaugural plaza at Miyapur Metro station to be Hyderabad’s next landmark

The inaugural plaza and the specially designed pylon located next to the entrance of Miyapur metro station, to be unveiled by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on Tuesday, could well turn-out to be the most clicked landmark in Hyderabad.

Unlike other monuments that are usually fenced off, the plaza is an open monument, accessible to all and in the process also become a ‘selfie’ point for commuters. Designed by well-known senior architect from city Shankar Narayan, the plaza embodies the hoary heritage of Hyderabad and yet sports a contemporary look, Metro Rail officials said.

The three arches coming out of a pond reflect the three corridors of the Metro Rail and each arch is designed as a rail track which vanishes into infinity, signifying the future expansion of the Metro Rail system.

The unique features of the Hyderabad Metro and a comparison of two iconic Railways viz., the Nizam State Railway and the Hyderabad Metro are etched on the stainless steel arch panels. The inaugural plaque in the middle of the pond sports latest 3-D look,” said architect Shankar Narayan.

Cobblestoned granite podium adds a rich look to the plaza and will act as a differentiator from the ground level. “The landscape and lawn on both sides of the plaza will further elevate the ambiance and will become another hotspot for people to congregate and relax,” said MD, HMRL, NVS Reddy.

    We need to improve infrastructure and Industrial growth two sides of ORR. Need to connect ORR to other roads like Mokila-Shankarpally road. Need to widen existing roads outside Hyderabad, even though there is no demand or busy as of now, once we widen roads automatically industries, commercial and economical activities will be created. Below some important points to bring industries and commercial activities immediately

    1. Remove or Reduce GO111 restriction limit, so that commercial and industries grow immediately. Anyhow govt setup many trees across telangana in last 3 years, so we are in good position to promote greenery.
    2. Industries growth & Roads widen entire ORR i.e. Service roads. promote commercial activities on two sides of Service roads
    3. Complete Gandipet-Shankarpally road widening immediately to promote commercial activities, its already in progress, but very slow. Also encourage residential and commercial construction on this road.
    4 Create More junctions on ORR, so that residential and economical activity crated on this junctions
    5. Tellapur, Kollur, Mokila & Other villages Road/flyover connectivity to ORR.
