Footpaths near all metro stations are set for a Rs 81.2-crore makeover. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) invited tenders to this effect on Tuesday. 

BBMP Commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad said in a tweet: “As part of BBMP’s efforts to improve last mile connectivity, we have floated tenders for development of footpaths and providing non-motorised transit in a number of places connecting metro stations. We intend to complete these works within 6 months after finalisation of tenders (sic).” 

The project, floated last year, aims to ensure people do not have to walk on traffic-filled roads while reaching metro stations. Curiously, the project includes developing footpaths near
MG Road and Trinity Circle stations, where pavements are already in a good
condition.
