Impact of Metro on Urban Morphology and Para Transport System of Hyderabad

Gowni Pranay Kumar

Abstract: Metro rail was created as a rapid transport system to improve connections, provide a more pleasant travel experience, and reduce commute times. The introduction of metro rail in Hyderabad is seen as a 'coming of age' in the city's transformation into a world-class city, resulting in increased demand for it as a mode of transportation in the city. The metro is anticipated to be a green and structurally sound mode of urban transportation, with the primary purpose of reducing traffic congestion by encouraging people to take public transportation. Metro rail helps to divert a substantial amount of current passengers carried from the road toward the metro, as well as fulfill a portion of future passenger demand. The influence of colonialism and globalization on Hyderabad's urban morphology will be studied in this research. The urban morphology hypothesis gives a lens through which to examine history in order to determine how it has shaped a city's shape and size. It begins with the city plan and follows how it has changed over time, along with how the city has changed in relation to the current plans and socioeconomic realities. The major goal of the research paper is to investigate the role of the Hyderabad metro rail in urban development, with a focus on safety, convenience, time savings, inclusion, and equity among people. Hyderabad's metro train system is the largest public-private partnership project in the world. The study paper examines how Hyderabad's metro rail system connects to several metropolitan corridors for greater efficiency and connectivity to the city's outskirts. The research also looks at how the introduction of metro rail in Hyderabad has affected the paratransit system and its income. Metro rail, for example, pushes the city to become more sustainable, but it also raises a variety of challenges, such as traffic congestion. This study investigates people's traffic problems throughout the metro building era.
