That concrete structure doesn't look all too stable either.

Several MRTS proposals for Bangalore have been in the pipeline for nearly 24 years. In 1982, a study suggested that the MRTS should have a route length of 12.20 km. and pegged the cost at Rs. 239.15 crores.

In 1983, the Metropolitan Transit Project, an organization of Indian Railways, prepared a feasibility report for provision of suburban rail services on existing lines, a circular railway of 57.9 km. metro system on two corridors, in Phase-I 12.9 km. from Rajajinagar to Jayanagar and in Phase - II 11.2 km. from Hudson Circle to Krishnarajapuram. In 1988, a World Bank aided study was carried out by RITES and the study recommended a Commuter Rail System along with improvement of road transport system.

Later, in 1994, the Bangalore Mass Rapid Transit Limited (BMRTL) was incorporated by the State Government to implement the mass rapid transit system. BMRTL in turn asked the IL&FS to carry out a feasibility study for LRT System on Public-Private Partnership. However, though the partner was selected, the project did not take off. Later, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in partnership with RITES prepared a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Bangalore Metro Rail, Phase I in 2003 at the instance of the Government. It proposed two double line corridors: East-West (EW) and North-South (NS) with a total length of 33 km.

The Bangalore Metro Rail finally took shape with the Karnataka Government clearing the project in March, 2005 and the Union Government giving its approval in April, 2006.

Schedule & Frequency

The Bangalore Metro construction work on the first elevated section (Reach-1) from Baiyappanahalli to Cricket Stadium (7 km.) is expected to be commissioned by within the first half year 2011..

BMRCL is seeking to minimize public inconvenience during the construction period. Prefabricated viaduct segments will be launched during night time, to avoid disruption of traffic.

The frequency of the Metro trains will be every four minutes initially. This would increase to three minutes by 2021. The travel time from end to end on the east-west corridor will be 33 minutes, and on the north-south corridor 44 minutes. The system is designed for a maximum train speed of 80 kmph.

Project Highlights

Bangalore Metro, With All Its Promises

The Bangalore Metro has all the components required for a successful integrated public transport system. It offers:

• Comprehensive connectivity • Convenience • Comfort • Affordability • Frequency • Reliability • Safety • Aesthetics

The Route Map

The Bangalore Metro weaves through the bustling commercial and residential areas of the city. The first phase of Bangalore Metro, consisting of two corridors of double line electrified, will cover a total of 42.30 km.

The East-West corridor will be 18.10 km. long, starting from Baiyappanahalli and terminating at Mysore Road terminal, going via Swami Vivekananda Road, Indiranagar, Halasuru, Trinity, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Cricket Stadium, Vidhana Soudha, Central College, Majestic, City Railway Station, Magadi Road, Hosahalli, Vijayanagar and Deepanjali Nagar.

The 24.20 km. North-South corridor will begin at Nagadandra and terminate at Puttenahalli going via Mahalakshmi, Rajajinagar, Kuvempu Road, Malleswaram, Swastik, Majestic, Chikpete, City Market, K.R. Road, Lalbagh, South End Circle,Jayanagar and Puttenahalli.

Out of the 42.30 km., 8.822 km. will be underground near City Railway Station, Vidhana Soudha, Majestic and City Market and most of the rest will be elevated.

s. yogendra, there should be a separate thread on Namma Metro, separating its distinct identity and expansion from Bengaluru's various other modes of public transport. Most other cities in this sub-forum follow the same pattern.

I could create a separate thread for Namma Metro in the approved SSC format.
Please post your invaluable contributions in its own thread.
