Metro extension to airport beyond Nagawara (Thanisandra rd-Bagalur route) with limited stops is the best option since it will hook up with the entire metro network without loss of travel time from any part of the city.
Yes, countries are going to normal metro than high speed rail - check out this the new Silver Line connecting Washington DC to Dulles Airport.



There are a lot of other info for u geeks :-)

Couldn't stop laughing....

"It, however, recommended extension of Metro phase II, scheduled to be completed in 2015 . A dedicated expressway was considered sufficient in the interim."

TBM Margarita had a breakthrough at Cubbon Road Station today, few mins ago. This finishes East leg of East-West tunneling. Now the short West part remains.

I wish it could become true.

Anyways, to Margarita!

Btw, why is the site so slushy? No rains for past few days.
They want to give her a 'mud bath' & then dismantle or wat?

short west part of this corridor can be finished off by helen alone both ways, as happened with minsk-chinnaswamy stretch.. margarita can now go for north south corridor.

can they start full east west baiyappanahalli to mysore road even if majestic station is not finished? and mainly when. without a stop in majestic of course

Good to see even high speed airport train uses third rail so nagavara-iimb line can still be made third rail even if it extends to airport

Margarita is not suited for N-S tunneling. Also different contractors, so can't switch.

Yes. Ex-MD said they are targetting Oct 2014... without stopping at any of the UG stations.

Wonder when they'll start laying tracks within tunnels? Long way to go still & Oct-2014 seems unrealistic since trials /certifications have to be completed too.
