Silk Board Jn Metro, flyover project to be up in three years
The Rs 800-crore project on a grade separator from Ragigudda to Silk Board, which will also include the ambitious multi-level flyover and elevated Metro tracks, will be completed by 2020 along with other Phase 2 projects, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd officials said.

Bengaluru Development Minister K J George said on Friday that the cost of construction of the grade separator from Ragigudda to Silk Board under Namma Metro project would be shared between Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and BMRCL.

A BBMP official said the Palike will pay Rs 100 crore to BMRCL. The project, announced in the state budget, includes a four-lane flyover of more than 3.5 km connecting two points on the outer ring road.

BMRCL officials said the junction is crucial since it connects multiple lines in Namma Metro Phase 2. “The RV Road-Bommasandra line goes through Silk Board junction. Later, the Gottigere-Nagaw­ara line crosses the section at Jayadeva Hospital. Also, Phase 2A’s Silk Board-KR Puram line work can be taken up only after the junction is completed. We want to complete the work by 2020,” he said.
