N.V.S. Reddy, managing director, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) told reporters Tuesday that the realignment requested by the Telagnana CM in two corridors of Assembly and the Mojamjahi Market would escalate the project cost by a few hundred crore rupees.

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has already asked LTMRHL to change the metro route on two corridors to save heritage structures and the L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited (LTMRHL) will complete the study within a month for realignment.

Reddy said there would be slight changes on the routes in front of state assembly building and Sultan Bazar areas. Otherwise the Metro rail running on elevated surface will be more or less same.

LTMRHL is building 72-km elevated metro project at a cost of Rs.14,132 crore in public private partnership but the Telagnana CM has recommissioned them to extend the metro rail up to 200 kms .
