BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): Karnataka’s Chief Minister, Shri Siddaramaiah, has announced the extension of the Bangalore Metro to Tumakuru & Devanhalli in the budget speech presented in Karnataka’s assembly. 

The Budget Speech 

The feasibility report for extending the Metro rail from Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) to Tumakuru and Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) to Devanahalli on a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis will be prepared,” Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said in his budget speech.

The 2 Corridors 

The work is to be taken on  a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model on two corridors, namely: 

  1. BIEC to Tumkur (50 Kms) 
  2. Kempegowda International Airport to Devanahalli (13km) 

Existing Lines 

The existing metro stations in the Bnaglore metro out of the above proposed are: 

  1. BIEC Station – Green Line 
  2. Kempegowda International Airport – Blue Line 

BIEC-Tumkur Line  

The upcoming opening of the 3 km Nagasandra-BIEC (Green Line) Metro section is anticipated within a few months, with further extension plans reaching Tumakuru, spanning approximately 50 km. This extension is poised to stimulate real estate growth in the northwest region of Bengaluru.
