In order to facilitate Metro Rail crossing works over the SCR Rail track network between Bharat Nagar and Sanathnagar Stations in twin cities, the South Central Railway has imposed a traffic block on train movements in this section from 12:15 pm to 03:15 pm on Saturday. It would lead to cancellation of 18 MMTS services which run to and from Lingampally and also Lingampalli – Falaknuma and Hyderabad-Lingampalli MMTS trains.
Four passenger trains – Vikarabad – Kacheguda; Tandur – Hyderabad; Hyderabad – Tandur and Secunderabad – Vikarabad have been cancelled. Two trains have been partially cancelled. While Falaknuma – Hyderabad MMTS service has been partially cancelled between Secunderabad and Hyderabad, the Pune – Secunderabad – Pune Shatabdi Express will be partially cancelled between Lingampalli and Secunderabad.
The train will terminate and originate from Lingampalli, instead of Secunderabad, as per the scheduled timings at Lingampalli. Likewise, the Vikarabad – Guntur Palanadu Express, which departs Vikarabad at 01.45 pm is re-scheduled to depart at 02.30 pm.
