Architecture and infrastructure specialist RMJM has been awarded the contract to design one of three new metro lines in Hyderabad, India.

RMJM’s scope of work includes 13 elevated stations over a 14km route. It is due for completion in 2015.

The firm will also design two interchange stations, which will be between 4,000 and 5,000m2 in size and inspired by Islamic design. One will connect the metro line to the 74-platform Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station.

Like the Dubai Metro, Hyderabad’s transit system will be an above-ground viaduct structure with automatic trains.

Built and operated by Larsen & Toubro, it will involve the construction of 71.16km of elevated metro rail in three corridors and 63 eco-friendly stations, and will include retail and commercial space.
