BENGALURU (Metro Rail News): Of the 142 Metro stations of Namma Metro‘s Phase-I and II, Infosys Konappana Agrahara is going to be the first station on 18-km RV Road-Bommasandra Line which is going to get certification from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), India’s premier body for energy efficiency assessment. As per the information provided by a senior metro official, the registration forms have been submitted by the Infosys Foundation whereas the documents will be submitted soon.

for the construction of this station, the Infosys Foundation is spending around Rs 100 crore. The work began in September 2017, but the pandemic delayed it like other Metro projects. Col Vinod said, “The roofing will have a layer of Rock Wool under it, and another roofing below it. This is to ensure commuters feel cool inside the station. This system known as Kalzip Roofing is found in airports,” he added, TNIE reported.  

Manoj Hegde, Regional Manager, Infosys Foundation, said, “The facade is aesthetically pleasing and it is a completely closed station. Nearly 30,000 sqft has been earmarked for BMRCL for commercial ventures which is huge, while the Infosys Foundation will have 3,000 sqft for itself. A 350-metre walkway will be built by Infosys Ltd that will take employees directly to the campus from the Metro station.” 

BMRCL MD Anjum Parwez said that one portion of this Reach 5 line from Central Silk Board to Bommasandra would be ready by June 2023 for opening whereas the rest of the line could be opened by the end of 2023.
