Part of Namma Metro Green Line to be shut for 10 days

Namma Metro’s Green Line operation between Sampige Road and Rajajinagar stations will be shut for 10 days starting from Monday.

The Green Line service will be available only between Nagasandra and Rajajinagar stations, said a statement by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited. Consequently, the train service will not be available at Sampige Road, Srirampura and Kuvempu Road stations. During the 10 days from March 13 to 22, officials will link the current operating stations with the new ones, which will eventually enable them to operationalise the entire Green Line from Yelachenahalli to Nagasandra.

However, the BMTC will run a feeder service  — MF 16 — from Rajajinagar Station to Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji Station and Hosahalli Metro Station. Commuters can also board bus route no 401 series which connects these stations.

Experts from Alstom, the French company which is conducting the tests,have already completed many of the 17 internal tests required before they seek inspection by the Commissioner for Railway Safety.

BMRC is racing to meet the April deadline with Bengaluru Development Minister K J George recently stating that the chief minister has told them to start the service on entire Phase 1 next month.
