Back in March, DMRC had invited bids for augmenting the depot’s 25 kV overhead equipment (OHE) and 33 kV auxiliary power supply through Package DE-14.
Outside of Delhi, Bangalore Metro Purple Line’s Baiyappanahalli Depot is in line to get remodeled for handling Phase 2A/2B Blue Line’s rolling stock. A tender notice for that is still pending and I hear it’ll be valued at roughly Rs. 104 crore. Per Naveen Menezes’ report at Bangalore Mirror, that depot will become a multi-level facility.
