Well, soil testing has generally been completed for Phase 2.

However, the present focus is on the various remaining reaches of Phase 1 that are nearing completion. We only have definitive completion dates for these reaches.

My understanding is that Phase 2 construction likely won't commence before next year (2014).

this newly proposed would feed Namma Metro at Mysore Road(Reach2), JP Nagar(Reach4) and Bannerghatta road(New Phase2 Line)?

Wonder if this was considered since it would need less if not zero land acquisitions as ORR is wide enough to accommodate it at the median.
