Mumbai’s RINA Consulting bags Bangalore metro DPR project

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) has awarded the preparation of the detailed project report (DPR) for the Sarjapur-Hebbal metro line project to Mumbai-based RINA Consulting.

RINA's engineering and infrastructure vertical provides consulting services for the infrastructure, transport and logistics markets, including ports and marine, railways, roads and highways, and buildings.

BMRCL had invited tenders in to create a DPR for Namma Metro’s proposed 37-km line via Agara, Koramangala and Diary Circle. Ten firms had evinced interest, including Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES), Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System, Korea Railroad Technical Corporation, Urban Mass Transit Company, Consulting Engineers Group, Tractebel Engineering, Aarvee Associates, and RINA.

RINA consulting will provide a baseline of the line’s length, underground and elevated route composition, number of stations, their locations, depot, coach requirement, ridership projection, operational game plan, total cost, etc. The DPR is expected to be completed in eight months.

In March this year, the BJP government in Karnataka unveiled plans to build the 37-km metro line between Sarjapur and Hebbal at a cost of Rs 150 billion. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had made the announcement while presenting his government’s maiden budget for the year 2022-23 in the Karnataka Assembly.
