Metro in Anjanapura by Aug 2020

Good news for thousands of commuters stuck on the Kanakapura Road. The BMRCL on Sunday announced that track-laying work was in progress for the extended metro line from Yelachenahalli to Anjanapura under Phase 2.

The BMRCL said track-laying work will be completed by October and several works on the Reach 4 extension will be taken up in the coming days to ensure the opening of the stretch to the public by August 2020. “The BMRCL is planning to open this line by August 2020,” the release said.

The 6.05-km extension from Yelachenahalli to Anjanapura Township will help thousands of travellers, who now get down at Yelahchenahalli and wait for buses at crowded junctions to travel further. The line will have five stations, including Vajrahalli, Talaghattapura and Anjanapura.

The BMRCL is also making arrangements to begin track-laying work on Mysore Road-Kengeri section (Reach 2 extension) by the end of March. The work is likely to be completed by December, the release said.

In a release, the corporation said that the track-laying contract has been awarded to Texmaco Rail and Engineering Limited, a New Delhi-based company, at an approximate value of Rs 530 crore. The work includes laying of tracks in Phase 2 main lines and all depots.
