Karnataka CM asks officials to wrap up Bengaluru metro phase 2 by 2024

On Wednesday, Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai asked officials to complete the second phase of the Bengaluru metro project by 2024, before the stipulated deadline of 2025.

He further said that the deadline for the second phase was set for 2025, but the officials could complete it by 2024. He asked the officials to replan and reschedule it so that the work could be completed earlier as the metro rail work is causing trouble to the people.

In a meeting, Bommani spoke about the breakthrough of the tunnelling for metro rail from Cantonment to Shivaji Nagar Metro station via the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).

The prior completion of the project will help the people to reach their destinations faster and will ease traffic congestion. CM Bommani will personally supervise the progress.

According to the officials of the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), the 21.26 km long line from Gottigere to Nagavara is a part of the second phase of the metro project. The line will have a 7.5 km long elevated corridor, six elevated stations and a 13.76 km long underground corridor from the south ramp Jayanagar fire station to the north ramp Nagawara, along with 12 underground stations.

The tunnelling work was started on 30 July 2020. The total tunnelling length is 21.246 km, and nine TMBs with 3.84 km of tunnelling have been completed. The overall cost of the second phase of the Bengaluru Metro, Namma, is Rs 30,695 crore.
