Steps are afoot in Andhra Pradesh (AP) to modernise transport facility in cities, via Metro Rail. Some five Indian firms have come forward to build Metro Rail in Vizag. The project will be taken up under Public Private Partnership (PPP), with the state government and a private party contributing infrastructure. In Vijayawada, it has been decided to build light Metro. The construction of Metro Projects in AP should be taken up by the Centre, as per the State Reorganisation Act. But now that this seems far fetched, the State government has come forward to fund it.
