The metro project, which is expected to cost Rs 14,788.101 crore, would be finished in five years from the time it was approved.
According to an IE report, the central government authorised the Bangalore Metro Rail Project Phase 2A and Phase 2B on Monday, a 58.19-kilometer line between Central Silk Board Junction and Kempegowda International Airport through Hebbal Junction. The metro project, which is projected to cost Rs 14,788.101 crore, would be finished in five years from the date of approval, according to Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers DV Sadananda Gowda.
The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said in a statement that the metro project entails efficient and effective integration with existing Bengaluru urban transportation systems. The initiative, according to the Corporation, will simplify the city’s urban transportation system. The order for the authorization of the Bangalore Metro Rail Project Phases 2A and 2B was released today, according to the statement.
According to the newspaper, the Union Cabinet authorised the same two stages of the Bengaluru Metro Rail Project last month. These two metro stages are planned to facilitate travel to the state of Karnataka’s capital’s Information Technology (IT) and Biotechnology (BT) industries. According to a statement from the Union Cabinet, the project will streamline Bengaluru’s urban transportation system, which is currently stressed due to the city’s intensive development, heavy construction, and an increase in the number of private vehicles, putting strain on travel infrastructure as well as industrial activities.
The Namma Metro Phase 2 Southern Extension route from Yelachenahalli to Silk Institute Metro stations was launched earlier this year. According to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, the Metro expansion is a step toward the Bengaluru Mission 2022 aims of enabling speedier commutes and smart transport alternatives in the city.
