BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): M Venkata Rao Infra Projects Pvt Ltd has bagged the Bangalore Metro’s extension contract, reaching 616 meters in the pre-existing Lines. 

Purple Line Extension 

This contract includes extending the existing Purple line by 588 meters beyond Whitefield. It will take the Bangalore Metro’s purple line across the Indian Railways’ Bengaluru – Chennai line and up to Belathur Colony on Whitefield – Hoskote Road.

Depot Extension 

The contract’s scope also includes building a small 28m extension of the under-construction Whitefield Depot’s 3rd line. ITD Cementation India Ltd built both this and Reach 1B’s mainline.

Bids Invited 

BMRCL invited bids for this package in October 2023, with an estimated cost of Rs 42.30 Crore and an 18-month completion deadline. 

Scope of the Contract 

The scope of the contract entails the extension of the metro line by a length of 588 m beyond the Whitefield Metro Station in Reach-1B and the extension of the 3rd line at the Whitefield Depot by a length of 28 m for Bangalore Metro Rail Project, Phase-2.

Convenient for Masses 

The Whitefield (Kadugodi) currently uses only one platform to serve passengers. Since the line ends only 14 meters beyond the station, inbound trains are forced to arrive at a restricted slower speed.

This new extension train reversal cross-over track facility will greatly improve the train throughput, consequently allowing for high-frequency train operations in the future. The Crowd management at the station finds a solution to the quagmire.
