BMRCL unveils models for KR Puram, Jyotipura stations

Bengaluru Development Minister K J George on Tuesday reviewed models of two metro stations proposed by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) which also include flyovers to decongest traffic in KR Puram area.

The model of the KR Puram station shows an inter-change station coming up at Lowry Institute area.

The project includes a flyover connecting the Outer Ring Road to the Bengaluru-Tirupati Highway, saving commuters the trouble of driving to Tin Factory to get on to the KR Puram bridge.

The model of Jyotipura station includes the yet-to-be approved Metro line towards Hebbal, diverting from the station. An official said the minister will take a decision within the next few days.
