BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is set to introduce 16 new interchange stations as part of its Phase 2 and Phase 3 projects. Currently, the Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Interchange station at Majestic is the city’s only interchange station, facilitating transfers between the Purple and Green lines. This hub supports approximately 50,000 commuters daily, making it a vital point in Bangalore’s metro network.

Future Developments: A Network of Interchanges

The planned expansion includes strategically located interchange stations across the city. These will link the existing Purple and Green lines with the new Yellow, Pink, and Blue lines, significantly expanding the network’s reach. Key upcoming stations will be at Jayadeva Junction, M.G. Road, K.R. Puram, and others, spanning critical areas from Mysuru Road to Nagavara.

Set to open by the end of this year (Partially), the Jayadeva Junction station is anticipated to be Bangalore’s largest interchange metro station. It is located on Bannerghatta Road and will connect the Yellow Line (R.V. Road to Bommasandra) with the Pink Line (Kalena Agrahara to Nagawara). This station is uniquely designed with a double-decker flyover, accommodating both metro and road traffic, significantly reducing transit times for commuters coming from Ragigudda towards Silk Board.

Operational Phases and Impact

The Jayadeva interchange station is slated for a partial opening to coincide with the inauguration of the Yellow Line later this year, with full operations commencing upon the completion of the Pink Line. BMRCL officials project that once fully operational, the station could see between 80,000 to 90,000 daily users, potentially making it the busiest metro interchange station in Bangalore following Majestic.
