Bangalore Metro|Namma Metro to run on Mysore, Magadi roads this month

Bangalore: The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is all set to start its Mysuru Road-Magadi Road Metro train operations this month.

The stretch, which has already seen several delays like all the other currently operating stretches, is ready, but for some last-minute formalities.

It was supposed to open in July and then, in September. It received clearance from the commissioner for railway safety (CRS)  last month, but with  a few riders.

Namma Metro officials say that they are in the process of getting things done as per the requirements of the report submitted by the CRS and within this month, the commercial operations will begin on the stretch.

BMRCL Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said, “There are still some formalities to be completed as per the CRS’s report and currently, these are underway. We will be starting commercial operations on this stretch within this month. We will disclose the dates of commencing the operations once all formalities are completed.”

Once the 6.4-km stretch opens, commuters will be able to reach Hosahalli, Attiguppe, Vijayanagar, Mysuru Road and Magadi Road avoiding the heavy traffic on the roads.

Safety Clearance: It must be mentioned that the safety clearance by the Commissioner for Railways Safety, which is a mandatory exercise, also took a longer time than usual.

This was because the CRS was caught up in investigating two recent back-to-back train accidents, adding to the existing delay in launching the operations of the Metro train on this stretch.
