Rail station near trumpet flyover to connect KIA

The proposal to build a railway station (halt) near the trumpet flyover to provide train connectivity to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) has got the momentum with the state government holding talks in this regard.  

"The government has held discussions with the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL). We will come out with a final plan soon," sources in the government said.
The station will be about  five km from the airport. It will be part of the suburban rail network with the government recently selecting RITES to conduct a feasibility study to provide rail connectivity to the airport.

The Department of Urban Land Transport, which one of the nodal agencies in the suburban rail project, is likely to take the airport link on high priority. The project requires the doubling of Yalahanka-Devanahalli line and building a third line between Yashwantpur and Devanahalli.
