    Good , one more step towards opening the line, What about the bridge at the western side near the railway station?

    Also, (bangalore mtero) Green line extension updates?

    • TMRG says:

      No idea about the other bridge. Will need to check.

      Still waiting for BMRCL to release the launch date. Industry friends don’t have a rough timeframe either.

      Hey, that sounds nice but I don’t know if I’d be able to dedicate time towards it. My goal right now is to focus on the site and be consistent and timely 🙂

    When is the work planned to start and finish for vanaz metro to be extended to hinjewadi

    • Peter says:

      Aren’t those two different lines?

      • TMRG says:

        Yup. Although Vanaz and Hinjawadi are on the city’s west-side, I haven’t seen any plan to connect both places.
