BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): Bangalore Metro has invited bids to study the feasibility study of extending the metro from northern Bengaluru’s Madavara to Tumakuru, a distance of 52.41 km, under a public-private partnership (PPP) model.

Madavara to Tukamuru Corridor

Bid Opening Date: April 2, 2024


The concerned corridor was announced by the CM of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah, in the state budget for 2024-25. 

Reason behind Going Inter-City 

Initially, the plan was to extend the green line until Kunigal Cross, beginning from Madavara, a total distance of 11 km(s). However, Home Minister G Parameshwara has been keen to take the metro to his hometown of Tukamuru. He has proposed building the metro along the NH-48. 

Scope of Survey 

It would include estimated construction costs, traffic surveys, the alignment of the metro lines, properties needed to be acquired, potential hurdles in land acquisition, and so on. It should be ready in the upcoming 2-3 months.

Alternatives in Scope 

The government may opt for a Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) to connect the two cities, akin to the semi-high-speed railway line established between Delhi and Meerut. As part of this initiative, metro stations would be strategically positioned at greater intervals to minimise travel duration.
