The famous Clock Tower in Secunderabad getting dwarfed by the pillars of the metro. It is a heritage structure. You can see the Clock Tower in the distance (Click on the photos for a better view). Tall pillars (more or less equal in height to the Tower) will be constructed close to the Tower which poses threat to the stability of the structure itself. Sultan Bazaar also lies in this corridor. Better to scrap this corridor-2 as the MMTS local train runs from Secunderabad to Falaknuma which can be strengthened easily.
We are very glad that the Telangana Chief Minister, Shri KCR, has talked tough to the metro officials that the corridor cannot go overhead in front of the Assembly, and also thru Sultan Bazaar. We demand scrapping of the corridor-2 which goes thru Sultan Bazaar. We have given sufficient reasons to scrap this one. How L&T feels is no indication of the investor confidence in the TRS government which is a false bogey raised by some sections. Show L&T its place if it doesn't follow the govt's directive.
