Warangal Urban,Feb 23:A seven-member team from Intamin Transportation, a Switzerland based monorail company, and three other companies visited Warangal as a part of the feasibility study to introduce monorail in Telangana's second largest city on Thursday.
The team accompanied by Mayor N Narender and officials of the Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) visited Rampur, Kazipet, Pochamma Maidan and Venkatrama theatre localities in the city as a part of their study.
Speaking to the press persons at Haritha Kakatiya Hotel in Hanamkonda, president of Global Spectrum, (Management consultancy), Tika Mustafa Hasan, said the length of monorail project was 12 km starting from Kazipet to Venkatrama theatre in Warangal.
