WRI India selected as technical advisor for phase 2 Bengaluru metro

The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has contracted with the World Resources Institute (WRI India) as a technical advisor for its Phase 2A and Phase 2B metro corridor to boost the Multimodal Integration (MMI) and Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).

This initiative was discussed at the round table meeting on MMI and TOD for Bengaluru Metro Rail Corridor, held on 26, 27 and 31 August. WRI India is a global research organisation that aims at building sustainable, low-carbon, and liveable cities.

The initiative tries to bridge Bengaluru's disconnect between the main transit infrastructure and unprecedented growth. TOD will ensure direct growth along the rail transit corridors and, so the walkers can connect with the neighbourhoods, said an official statement.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has provided financial assistance to the Bengaluru Metro project for its Phase 2A from Silk Board to KR Puram and Phase 2B from KR Puram to Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). It also provided technical assistance for TOD, while WRI India will provide technical advisory support to ADB.

Managing Director of BMRCL, Anjum Parwez, told the media that the initiative would ease mobility and development along Bengaluru's Phase 2A and 2B metro rail corridors.
