Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday declared that Bangalore will have the metro train, monorail, and high-speed train connectivity to Bangalore International Airport in the next three years.

The three projects would be ready before his government completes its term, as a city of international repute such as Bangalore should have good public transport, he told the Legislative Assembly.

Replying to a question from K J George (Cong), Yeddyurappa said the detailed project report on the monorail, which willl have a 40-km network in the first phase, will be ready by July-end. Tenders would be invited in September and the work will begin in January.

“If the members (MLAs) co-operate, then the work on the monorail will begin in January next. We want to take all three work on a priority basis”, he added. When Dinesh Gundurao (Cong) suggested that metro train connectivity be given to the airport instead of going in for the high-speed connectivity from MG Road to the airport, the chief minister said his government was firm on going ahead with high-speed rail link project as it has been planned after studying all the aspects.

George requested Yeddyurappa to extend the proposed monorail line from Hebbal to Byappanahalli as that would help 10 lakh to 15 lakh commuters. The chief minister said it would be considered only after completing the first 40 kilometres. As Bangalore requires both the mono and the metro, work on the monorail will be taken up in a phased manner.
