HYDERABAD: KT Rama Rao, the Telangana municipal and industrial minister, has urged Union Minister for Urban Development Hardeep Singh Puri to fund the state's most prestigious initiative, which will cost about Rs 8,684 crore, to fund 100% sewerage treatment.He told the union minister to bear one third of the cost, which covers the Amruth 2 scheme, which totals about Rs 2,850 crore.As feeder services to the existing Hyderabad metro rail and MMTS, the Telangana municipal minister also requested that the Centres help in implementing Personal Rapid Transit Systems (PRTS), a ropeway system from Assembly metro station to Paradise metro station.On Thursday, KTR met with Hardeep Singh Puri, the union minister, in Delhi, and submitted paperwork relating to the 100% sewage treatment scheme and the PRTS project.

In Hyderabad's metropolitan development zone, this will also ensure that no pollution is created by the Musi river and other water bodies.A comprehensive master plan was developed for the construction of 62 STPs, which included the construction of lateral sewer mains, branch sewer mains, and trunk sewer mains for sewer collection and transporting.According to KTR, priority is being given to GHMC values and beyond GHMC limits and within ORR limits in other steps.In the Phase I, 31 STPs with a capacity of about 1250 MLDs are being built in three packages for Rs 3,800 crore, according to him.

According to the minister, the Hyderabad metro rail has a 69-kilometer and 46-kilometer multimodal transportation network (MMTS).In addition, the Telangana government was exploring options for green urban mobility solutions such as PRTS and ropeway that could serve as feeder services to the metro rail and MMTS.The PRTS corridor is planned for a length of 10 kilometers, connecting state Assembly to Paradise metro station with a spur to Khairtabad metro station and MMTS station.According to the minister, the proposed corridor can be connected to other transportation modes, such as metro rail at Assembly station, Paradise and Khairtabad station, and MMTS at James street station and Khairtabad station.

Since the country's high-powered commission, MoRTH has developed a set of recommended standards and requirements for the PRT system.For the sake of this paper, use your good offices with MoRTH to provide requirements, plans, and legal structures as soon as possible, according to KTR.
