It’s unpaid area on both sides which can be freely used by anybody. If anyone stops this usage of both sides of metro station as FoBs/Skywalks, they can be told that these are government orders,” said an offical announcement from Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).
“Staircases, lifts & escalators from street level to concourse level are deliberately built in unpaid area for this purpose. Right now the 24 stations function as 24*2=48 FoBs/Skywalks for the people to safely cross the roads at all Metro stations,” further said the announcement.
