SWR-South western railways/Bengaluru suburban-metro updates

Post by sandeep sunstar » Mon Dec 30, 2019 4:29 am

  • Phase 2 Information Bengaluru metro

The Phase 2 project received Karnataka government’s approval in 2011 and union government’s approval in 2014. Construction work on the 73.95 km Phase 2’s first new section (Mysore Road – Pattanagere, Reach-2A of Purple Line) started in September 2015 (See: Construction Updates). The project faced funding issues due to which a majority of civil construction contracts were awarded only in the first half of 2017. While the Purple Line’s extension to Challeghata & Green Line’s extension to Anjanapura Township will be ready in 2020, the entire phase, including a 13.92 km underground section, is expected to be ready, in sections, only by 2024. Once Phase 2 is operational, the network’s total length will become 116.256 km.

This phase involves the construction of 2 new lines on standard gauge tracks & the extension of both lines built in Phase 1 in all 4 directions:

New Lines:
#3 – Yellow line – R V Road – Bommasandra (19.143 km)
#4 – Red line – Gottigere – Nagawara (21.415 km)

Note: Official line colors are yet to be announced for the new lines.

Extensions:
#1 – Purple line – Mysore Road – Kengeri (8.814 km)
#1 – Purple line – Baiyyappanahalli – Whitefield (15.257 km)
#2 – Green line – Yelachenahalli (erst. Puttenahalli) – Anjanapura (6.29 km)
#2 – Green line – Hesaraghatta Cross (erst. Nagasandra) – BIEC (3.031 km)

Of the 73.95 km new track, 13.92 km will be underground while the rest 60.03 km will be elevated.

The embedded map below shows the exact location of all stations and can be zoomed into!
Note – The locations of stations marked with * are tentative and haven’t been revealed by the BMRCL.
