BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): In a big development which will decrease the traffic problems in the city, the six-km long Southern Extension line under phase-2 of Namma Metro was dedicated to public today.
The line, from Yelachenahalli to Silk Institute Metro stations, was inaugurated by Union Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri and Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

“Delighted to join CM Karnataka Sh @BSYBJP Ji & my senior colleague in the council of ministers Sh @DVSadanandGowda Ji for the inauguration of the 6-km long Southern Extension of Bengaluru Metro Project through video conferencing”, twitted Mr Hardeep Singh Puri.
“This 56-km long project will be built at an estimated cost of ₹14844 cr & will be based on comprehensive mobility plan strategy of expanding reach & augmenting capacity of public transport system, promoting multi-modal mobility options & facilitating transit-oriented development”, he added.
Phase-2 was sanctioned in 2014 and was supposed to be completed by 2018, but got delayed. The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation had said that the line would open in August last year. However, attributing the delay to Covid-19, the opening was postponed, until now.
“The inauguration of the Metro extension line and the FOBs today is a step towards the goals of Bengaluru Mission 2022 to enable faster commute and smart mobility options in the city,” the state government said in a statement.
