The government of Andhra Pradesh is already facing severe criticism from all sections of the society for not providing any funds for the most awaited Vizag Metro Rail project.
For note the Vizag Metro Rail project was mooted well before the Vijayawada Metro Rail project. Vijayawada Metro Rail is moving well. However, the concerned authorities claim that the Vizag Metro project is in the pipeline and a detailed project report (DPR) has been already submitted to the central government for in-principle approval.
Vizag metro rail project was planned in 2014 and the DPR prepared in 2015 and same was approved by the state cabinet after which it was sent to the central government in January 2016. The central government has proposed the project under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode against the conventional method of construction and the revised DPR was submitted in December 2016.
“We are waiting for the in-principle nod from the central government following which allocation of funds will be done,” Amaravathi Metro Rail Corporation Limited (AMRPC) managing director N Ramakrishna Reddy.
