From economic growth to improving infrastructure, a lot has improved over the years to enhance the quality of life of the residents. But, it looks like it is just the start since Telangana has a series of ongoing and upcoming mega projects lined up.

If you are curious to unfold more insights about the Telangana Megaprojects, this article will walk you through all of them in detail.

Top Upcoming Telangana Megaprojects 2024

1. Mumbai-Hyderabad High-Speed Rail

Mumbai-Hyderabad High-Speed Rail


The prospect of high-speed rail transit is making its way in India and one of the many projects that are happening is the Mumbai-Hyderabad High-Speed Rail project, which will make the journey between these two cities a lot faster and without any limitations.

The Mumbai-Hyderabad High-Speed Rail is a proposed high-speed rail line connecting India’s economic hub Mumbai with the city of Hyderabad. It is one of seven potential routes for the development of a high-speed rail network in India, as identified by the National Rail Plan (NRP). The NRP’s vision is to streamline a network between Mumbai and Hyderabad covering a distance of 709 km.

Although we don’t have any kind of confirmation this proposed bullet train line is not going to be done in the next decade or so, which means that the operation of this line will take some time.

At present, the megaproject is in its early stages of planning, which means that there’s a lot of time since things are finalized and the actual work kicks off. However, the completion of this project will have a significant impact on the economic and social development of both Mumbai and Hyderabad.

2. Hyderabad Regional Ring Road

The Hyderabad Regional Ring Road is another proposed 340 km 4-lane access-controlled expressway that will cover a few different towns around Hyderabad, including Sangareddy, Toopran, Choutuppal, Amangal, and Shankarpally.

The main prospect of this project is to strengthen the existing road network and add new stretches wherever linkages were found missing. National Highways Authority of India has included the Regional Ring Road in the pan-India Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-1. Besides connecting multiple districts across Telangana, the RRR will also connect different national highways, including NH 65, NH 44, NH 163, and NH 765.

The construction of this expressway will happen in two phases – north and south. Also, 50% of the project’s cost, including that of the land acquisition will be handled and taken care of by the state government. Besides that, the total estimated cost of the project is Rs. 17,000 crore.

We couldn’t find any insights regarding the project’s deadline yet, believing that NHAI has not been given one yet. The first phase of construction will cost Rs. 9,500 crore and the second phase will cost Rs. 6,480 crore.

3. Nagpur Vijayawada Expressway

Next up on the list of the proposed and ongoing megaprojects in Telangana, we had to include the Nagpur Vijayawada Expressway. The Nagpur Vijayawada Expressway is an under-construction 405-kilometer-long (252 mi) access-controlled expressway connecting the cities of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh and Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. It is being constructed under the Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-I program by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).

The expressway will go through three states – Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Maharashtra and connect some of the major cities and towns, including Vijayawada, Khammam, Warangal, Macherial, Asifabad, and Nagpur.

The construction of this expressway will include four lanes, enabling the vehicles to run at a speed of up to 120 km/hr. The estimated deadline for the project is 2027. Not only will the expressway reduce travel time and make connectivity a lot more seamless, but the completion of the project will also reduce congestion by a lot.

The total estimated budget for the project is Rs. 14,666 crore and it is being undertaken by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). It is being built under the Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM).

4. Warangal Metro NEO

Warangal Metro NEO

Another unique and ongoing megaproject worth highlighting is the Warangal Metro NEO. Warangal Metro Neo is a proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) system to be built in Warangal, Telangana, India. It will be a 15.5-kilometer-long system with 16 stations, connecting Kazipet railway station to Warangal railway station through its suburbs.

The system will use 25-meter-long electric buses that will run on both elevated and at-grade sections. The buses will be powered by an overhead electrical (OHE) system on the elevated portions and use battery power while operating on the at-grade (road) sections.

As far as the reports go, the project is currently in its planning stage and the detailed project review is currently being assessed by the government. The estimated cost for the entire project is set to be Rs. 1100 crore and while the schedule suggests that it would be completed in three years after the construction starts, there’s no confirmation yet.

The completion of this project will enable people to have a faster and hassle-free commuting system, which is expected to reduce traffic congestion significantly. 

5. Hyderabad Indore Expressway

Hyderabad Indore Expressway

The Hyderabad Indore Expressway is another approved expressway, which will connect the two major cities in India – Hyderabad and Indore. 

It is an under-construction 713-kilometer-long (443 mi) 4-lane semi-access-controlled expressway connecting Hyderabad, Telangana to Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India. It is being constructed under the Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase I program by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).

According to the available reports, the expressway will pass through a few major cities, including Hyderabad, Warangal, Nizamabad, Nanded, Akola, Khandwa, and finally Indore. Like the majority of the expressways in India, even this one has proposed 4 lanes wherein the vehicles will be able to play at a maximum speed of 120 km/hr.

The most astounding benefit that will come with this project is improved connectivity between the two cities. Also, it is expected to boost the economic status of the states as well. It is also expected to boost tourism in the states.

Since the project is currently in its planning and proposal stage, we’d have to wait for confirmed insights regarding the budget. Reports suggest that the project is expected to be constructed by 2025.

6. Hyderabad Airport Express Metro

Hyderabad Airport Express Metro

If you travel to and from Hyderabad, chances are that you potentially know that connectivity is often an issue from the Hyderabad airport. The Hyderabad Airport Express Metro is a proposed 31-kilometer (19-mile) semi-high-speed metro line that will connect the Raidurg metro station to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Shamshabad. The estimated completion date for the project will be around 2026.

The Hyderabad Airport Express Metro is a proposed 31-kilometer (19-mile) semi-high-speed metro line that will connect the Raidurg metro station to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Shamshabad.

Also, the metro will include 10 stations including Mindspace, Raidurg, Biodiversity, Nanakramguda, Narasingi, TSPA junction, Rajendra Nagar, Shamshabad junction, Airport cargo, and RGIA terminal. The project is being entirely funded by the state government and will reduce the time it takes for passengers to travel from and to the airport in Hyderabad.

Surprisingly, the completion of the metro will cut down the travel down to 20 minutes from the airport to the main city, which is an additional benefit. Also, reports suggest that it will reduce carbon emissions significantly.
