KARNATAKA (Metro Rail News): The Karnataka government has approved the extension of 20. 5 Km for Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMCRL) metro project from Bommasandra to Hosur. The Karnataka government has also asked the Tamil Nadu government to conduct a study for the implementation of the project, informed Krishnagiri MP Dr A Chellakumar.

Chellakumar informed that BMRCL had previously sent a proposal to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs ( MoHUA) regarding the project on May 23. “The Phase-2 of BMRCL metro rail project is being implemented up to Bommasandra from RV Road metro station of Phase-1. Adding to this, a 20.5 km stretch till Hosur in Tamil Nadu was approved by Karnataka Chief Minister. Of this, 11.7 km falls in Karnataka and the remaining 8. 8 km is in Tamil Nadu. Karnataka government approved the proposal and stated that Tamil Nadu can conduct a study for metro line between Bommasandra to Hosur,” the proposal stated.

According to the MP, the corridor from Bommasandra to Hosur will cross between both states, therefore coordination in sharing the project cost and monetary support between the two States is needed. “This is the dream project for thousands of people in Hosur, who regularly commute to work to Bengaluru. If the project is implemented, it will benefit people of both States socially and economically,” he said.

  1. It will be a boon to people of hosur town to get an infrastructure meant for mega cities with most people having their earnings from Bengaluru itself, thanks to big brother Karnataka government

  2. It is a good decision. Hope all the roads leading to outskirts of Bangalore be connected to metro to reduce the burden on road transport. Bangalore city is so congested that it will not be able to change the road system. Similarly, other routes to Hessarghatta, Doddaballapur, Devanahalli, Hosakote/ Kolar, Magadi road, Anekal be developed. Also, the existing routes requires to be further extended upto Bidadi/ Ramnagar, Jigani/ Bannerghatta, Varthur, Nelamangala…This will help a long way in reduction of pollution.

  3. This is a great Idea!! People from both the cities Hosur and Bangalore will be benifitted and this move will definitely reduce traffic and travel time between both the cities if this can be implemented soon.. Its definitely a Blessing and kudos to both the Governments 🙂
