The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has said it does not intend to review the decision to realign a segment on the R V Road-Bommansandra line.

In its first “official” communication on the realignment of Namma Metro Phase-2, which has led to protests by residents, the BMRCL said: “Patrons aggrieved by the relocation of stations at Jayadeva Circle and the alteration of alignment of R V Road-Bommasandra Line have expressed their dissatisfaction against it in view of the likely acquisition of their properties, we have considered them. But we do not propose to seek a review.”

Stating that it does not propose to seek a review of the decision to relocate the stations and change the alignment, the BMRCL said: “It is not feasible to locate stations at Jayadeva in public interest. Public infrastructure cannot be dismantled merely to protect the properties of some patrons who will be affected by the realignment.”

It said the corporation had also received complaints from a few people over the proposed alignment in the detailed project report (DPR) of the Baiyappanahalli-Whitefield line near Vaidehi Hospital Circle.

“The alignment design leaves the BMTC facility, a public infrastructure facility unaffected and forms the basis of the alignment design in the DPR. The BMRCL does not propose to seek a review as we consider the retention of the BMTC facility integrating with the proposed metro station in the vicinity,” the release stated.
