BANGALORE (Metro RaIl News): After over a year of approval from the Karnataka government, two Bengaluru Metro’s Phase 3 corridors are expected to receive approval from the Union government. 


This endorsement is anticipated to occur before the Lok Sabha polls, which experts believe will also benefit the BJP regarding electoral support in the IT hub. The anticipated approval of the network spanning ORR West and Magadi Road is poised to alleviate traffic congestion while fostering growth in the real estate sector.

Economic Boost 

Anticipated approval for expanding the network along ORR (Outer Ring Road) West and Magadi Road is poised to elevate the public transportation system and invigorate the real estate sector in suburban areas. 

Nevertheless, certain transportation specialists advocate extending the ORR West corridor from JP Nagar 4th Phase to Central Silk Board to integrate multi-modal transport seamlessly.

Change of Plans 

BMRCL has agreed to MoHUA’s requirement of operating three-coach trains instead of the initially proposed six-coach rolling stock. MoHUA imposed supplementary conditions for the Phase 3 corridor approvals.
