Here are some brand new images from inside different parts of Bangalore Metro’s 4.8 km MG Road – Magadi Road section while I continue to await for the safety inspection dates to be announced & subsequent inspection by the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) to be carried out. Tunneling work for this section under contract UG-2 was awarded to the CEC-SOMA-CICI JV in March 2010 and got completed in March 2014. Following that, trial runs began (see images) in November 2015.
The 5 underground stations on this section include Cubbon Park, Vidhana Soudha, Sir. M Visveshwaraya, Majestic (under construction by Coastal-GYT JV) and Bangalore City railway station.
Recently, the BMRCL’s MD took K.J. George, Karnataka’s Minister for Bengaluru Development and Town Planning, and an entourage of media personnel on a tour of the underground stations. 10+ brilliant images from it can be seen here: [Pics] Bangalore Metro’s Underground Section Nearing Completion.
