BENGALURU(Metro Rail News): The inauguration of the highly anticipated K.R. Puram-Whitefield Namma Metro line is set to take place on March 25, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagging off the first train. The line is an extension of the purple line from Baiyappanahalli to Whitefield, constructed as part of Phase II of the Namma Metro project, with a total length of 15 km.

Initially, only the K.R. Puram to Whitefield section, covering a distance of around 13 km, will be operational. The remaining stretch from K.R. Puram to Baiyappanahalli, approximately 2 km, is expected to open mid-year after the completion of the open web girder construction and other work over a railway track near Benniganahalli.

The BMRCL has spent nearly ₹4,500 crore on constructing the K.R. Puram to Whitefield line. Under Phase II, the BMRCL has invested around ₹5,000 crore in extending the metro line from Baiyappanahalli to Whitefield, with the 13-km line costing almost ₹4,500 crore for civil construction, land acquisition, traction, signalling, and other expenses.

The BMRCL expects the line opening to benefit between 2.5 lakh to 3 lakh passengers daily. The frequency of the five-train sets deployed by the BMRCL will be approximately 10 minutes, with a 23-minute travel time between the two destinations.
