Introduction

The Bangalore (Namma) Metro system is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) serving Bengaluru – Karnataka’s capital. Construction for the first 42.30 km phase started in April 2007 and its first section, connecting Baiyyappanahalli – MG Road on the Purple Line, opened in 2011. The 6th (final) section was inaugurated by the President on June 17 2017 and commercial operations started on the next day.

Construction work on the 73.95 km Phase 2’s first new section (Mysore Road – Pattanagere, Reach-2A of Purple Line) started in September 2015 (See: Construction Updates). The project faced funding issues due to which a majority of civil construction contracts were awarded only in the first half of 2017. While the Purple Line’s extension to Challeghata & Green Line’s extension to Anjanapura Township will be ready in 2020, the entire phase, including a 13.9 km underground section, is expected to be ready only by 2024 after which the metro network will become 116.25 km long.

A 102 km Phase 3 is currently on the drawing board of which 17km (Central Silk Board – KR Puram) has been expedited and will be built in parallel with Phase 2 under Phase 2A.
