The KSR Bengaluru railway station will soon get five more escalators to the foot overbridge, linking all platforms. 

Railway officials had called tenders for installing five escalators at KSR Bengaluru and one at Yeshwantpur with April 4 as the deadline. The successful bidder will also be responsible for annual maintenance for three years which will commence after the two-year guarantee period.

The KSR Bengaluru station, which has an annual footfall of about 2.8 crores, is also connected to the city railway metro station. 

At present, the foot overbridge has single escalators connecting the 10 platforms which are programmed to climb. The five escalators, whose overall cost is estimated at Rs 2.41 crore, are likely to provide an option for easy descent from the bridge. 

The Yeshwantpur station, which will soon see an annual footfall of 1 crore and has four escalators, will get another at a cost of Rs 48 lakh.
