BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) has recently awarded a contract to RINA Consulting SpA to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed 37-km metro corridor connecting Sarjapur Road to Hebbal via Agara, Koramangala, and Dairy Circle. This corridor is part of Phase 3 of the Bangalore Metro Rail Project.

RITES Ltd. created the draft DPR for the Phase 3 elevated corridors and provided it to BMRCL. These two lines will be built at an estimated cost of Rs 13,500 crore and have a combined length of 44.65 km with 31 metro stations.

The DPR is a voluminous document consisting of traffic surveys, ridership forecasts, analysis of alternatives, geotechnical investigation, social and environmental impact assessment, depot planning, and power requirements. The report also plays a key role in getting approvals from the state and Union governments and obtaining financial aid from global lenders.

The information requires at least a year’s effort. From the fourth phase of JP Nagar to Kempapura, Corridor 1 will be 32.15 kilometers long and have 22 stations. Corridor On Magadi Road would run for 12.5 kilometers with 9 stations from Hosahalli to Kadabgere.

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai announced Sarjapur Road Hebbal metro corridor during his budget statement for 2021–2022. He stated in his address that steps would be made to develop a detailed project report for building a new 37 km long metro line from Sarjapura to Hebbal through Agara, Koramangala, and Diary Circle, with an estimated cost of 715,000 crores. Phase 3 will either include the execution of this line, or it will be done separately.
