Bangalore Namma Metro Updates | ನಮ್ಮ ಮೆಟ್ರೊ - ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು


Official Bangalore Metro Website

Profile:
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.



Phase I
Consists of 42.3 kilometers of route length of which 8.8 kilometers is underground while the rest is elevated


Construction has been divided into 4 elevated 'reaches' and 2 underground sections:




The first section between Baiyyappanahalli and M.G. Road was inaugurated on October 20, 2011.

Work on Metro Rail to start by March 26

Exact location of work will be announced in a week: Madhu


BANGALORE: Bangaloreans will see the first construction activity of the Rs. 6,400-crore Metro Rail by March 26.

Huge machines will start digging bores to erect pillars for the 7-km viaduct from M.G. Road to Byappanahalli.

Managing Director of Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) V. Madhu told The Hindu that the first digging would begin on M.G. Road between Kumble Circle and Kamaraj Road on the one hand and on Old Madras Road near Byappanahalli on the other.

The exact location of work and traffic diversion plans would be announced in a week's time, Mr. Madhu said.

The construction of viaduct on the 7-km stretch has been awarded to M/s. Navayuga Engineering Co. (India) of Hyderabad for Rs. 115 crore. Mr. Madhu said the company has been asked to move the machinery to Bangalore to begin the work. A project manager from the company is expected to start working here from Monday or Tuesday.

The company would simultaneously begin the work on building the casting yard at the Defence Land on Old Madras Road near BDA Complex and the work on erecting piers for the viaduct.

A draft traffic diversion plan was ready and it would be discussed with the Police Commissioner and the Managing Director of Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation soon, he said.

Mr. Madhu has gone on record saying that the traffic would not be affected much from Anil Kumble junction to Brigade Road as the work would be mainly restricted to the boulevard.

Beyond this, the work would take up to eight metres of the road. This would affect the flow of traffic. The work would be restricted to a stretch of 200 metres to 300 metres at any given point of time to minimise inconvenience. The volunteers of the contractor would man the traffic.

He recently promised the Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry that the BMRCL would ensure that there was not much debris left on the road. Even the tyres of the vehicles moving out of the work areas would be washed. The contracting company was identifying the quarries to dump the waste generated. He agreed to the suggestion to put in place a mechanism to hear public views and grievances on the Metro construction.

Mr. Madhu said the Bangalore Development Authority had agreed to give 140 shops in Sarjapur for businessmen displaced to build the Metro. Talks were on to acquire more shops elsewhere. The modalities of distribution of the shops were yet to be worked out.

If the work is expected to start on March 26 then naturally the tenders process should be through, atleast for the first phase.

BTW, the coaches will be supplied by BEML with license from ROTEM (South Korea). So, expect a slightly modified version of Delhi Metro.

Rs. 172 crore for Metro Rail

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Bangalore's dream project — the Rs. 6,400-crore Metro Rail scheme — has received an allocation of Rs. 172.88 crore in the Budget. Work on the project will begin by the end of March.

With this, the funding for the project goes up to Rs. 409.88 crore. The allocation is part of the commitment of the two Governments to give Rs. 3,600 crore to the project over five years. Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. has plans to spend nearly Rs. 800 crore a year.

BMRCL Managing Director V. Madhu said cash flow was not a problem for the project. The project will incur heavy expenditure only when it starts paying for the land acquisition. This could begin some time in May or June.
