Three Metrolite corridors proposed for Bengaluru


Share post:

BENGALURU (Metro Rail News): Metrolite is a light urban rail transit system with small coaches and cheaper than the regular Metro network, could be operational Bengaluru soon. The Infrastructure Development Corporation (Karnataka) Ltd prepare a Comprehensive Mobility Plan for three Metrolite corridors under Phase 3 of Namma Metro which are Magadi Road Toll Gate to Kadabagere (13km), Whitefield – Domlur (16km) and Katamanallur Gate (near Hoskote) to Sarjapur Road-Hebbal (52 km).

A 34-km underground corridor along the Inner Ring Road and 30-km Hebbal to JP Nagar (ORR-West) is also proposed under this phase additionally. While ORR-West and Magadi Road Toll Gate is old corridors proposed under Phase 3, the other two are a new corridor.

Although it is doubtful that the earlier Phase 3 corridors like Gottigere to Basavapura, Nagawara to Aerospace Park, Kogilu Cross to Rajanakunte, Iblur to Carmelaram and Bommasandra to Attibele will be dropped or executed.

A Senior BMRCL official said that Each project suggested in CMP will have to go through the process of alternative investment analysis, appraisal and approval. The Centre has been encouraging cities to go in for Metrolite systems as it’s less cost-intensive i.e almost 50% cheaper compared to the normal Metro network.

It can be built on the surface as well as elevated tracks. “Metrolite is suggested as the rail-based public transport system has a cost-effective mobility solution for the likely ridership.

The inner ring Metro suggested as the underground system as an elevated system is not feasible due to smaller road width,” the CMP says.

It also suggested, “to plan new Metro lines aligned with the master plan of the city and its areas of growth, keeping in mind the development of economic centres and residential layouts; the focus must also be ensured on core areas, where construction may be difficult”.

Metrolite for Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) and NICE Road

A Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) or Metrolite has been suggested for Peripheral Ring Road and NICE Road.

The CMP Says that The selection between BRTS or Metrolite will need to be done based on detailed ridership assessment and analysis. The total length of BRTS / Metrolite on NICE road and proposed PRR is 107km.

“PRR of 78-km length and 80-metre width is proposed on the northwest periphery of the city with complementary connectivity to NICE Road on the south-east periphery and provision in the middle for BRTS or traction guided at-grade,” it added.

“The overall public transport network of 803km within Bangalore Metropolitan Area is envisaged under different modes — dedicated rails, roads, road lanes, traction-guidance, i.e. Metro, suburban rail, priority bus corridors, BRTS or Metrolite in addition to augmentation of public bus transport services,” it adds
