Majestic Bottleneck:

He assured Rotarians that all the remaining corridors - northern , southern and western - will be operational by June-end 2013 . But construction of Majestic station will be delayed by more than 3-4 months as a result of which trains passing through the station won't stop there , he added . He added that of the two tunnel boring machines , one has started operations from Central College station to Vidhana Soudha . The other is expected to launch in 15 days .
.
it will be difficult to change line

I don't think there is requirement to change the track/line on Majestic. The train can change track at the end of station
example : For Green line the train starts from Peenya and end in Puttenhalli and in puttenhalli they can change the tracks.

Even if the have a temporary /adhoc switch like the one near MG Road, it'll be in the elevated area near Swastik.

Readiness of Majestic Station

The public statement by BMRCL about readiness of Majestic station is very unrealistic. The tender itself talks about 135 weeks of work which pushes it to August 2014. Considering other hurdles it will go to end 2014.

Running trains through the station when work is still in progress, though technically feasible is always a safety hazard.

Further, some of the stations like KR market and Chickpet are yet to take of in real sense. We have seen that stations progress at the rate of 2 or maximum 3 percent per month. Inintial 20 percent coming up in about 4 months. All in all we will have Reach 3 operational in 2013. If track change facility is possible at Visweswariah then extension of Reach 1 till that could be reality in 2013.

Has anybody any idea of shape of Majestic station? Is it a plus type or T type? If it is plus type then till it gets totally complete we have no hopes on Reach 2 and 4. But if it is T shaped (with platforms for green and purple lines connected through UG walk/escalator routes) then Reach 2 could get connected earlier and Reach 4 will get connected earliest by early 2015.

Barricades in Jayanagar 5th blk

Saw a small barricaded area yesterday in the footpath near Jayanagar 5th blk. This was in the stretch between the new Jnr 9th blk bus stand and Raghavendra temple signal. The board read Namma metro for sure but could not make out if phase 2 was also there... But I presume it should be for that..
Btw, is this a part of the Geotechnical survey for which BMRC had called for tenders 2-3 months back ? No info on who got that contract..

May be BMRCL apart from Majestic Station is speaking of UG station readiness too esp on UG1 N-S sector. If tunneling is complete and UG station's base floor is complete, they might be able to run trains.

I agree with Anil29, unless some miracle happens(which wont), we wont see phase 1 finish until 2015 March i feel..

If BMRCL has some brains, then it should go full steam on the ITPL extension of phase 2(once approved by Central govt)..its has no under ground, depot is already present and not much land acquisition also...It can be built in 2 years flat and can be opened with Phase 1 completion...

If ITPL is connected by 2015, then ppl will forget that it took more time to finish the metro :-) Hordes will jump onto it!!

Yes 2015 or even later than that will be the completion time..phase 2 will definitely take another 10-15 years...but hopefully by 2020 we will hwve phase 1 complete..

Ok I have a doubt... BWSSB just laid underground pipelines along the K R Puram bridge (near Tin factory).. Assuming the phase2 line comes there, what about these pipes??
