Phase 2 Information

Bangalore (Namma) Metro Phase 2 project with 73.921 km of new routes was approved by Karnataka’s state government’s in 2011 and by India’s Central Government in 2014.

Construction work on Phase 2’s first new section (Mysore Road – Pattanagere, Reach-2A of Purple Line) commenced in September 2015. Out of the 73.921 km length of new track, 13.885 km will be underground while the rest will be built elevated.

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 2020-21, the entire phase, including a 13.885 km underground section, is expected to be ready in sections, only by 2024. Once Phase 2 is operational, the network’s total length will become 116.19 km.

Major lenders providing official development assistance (ODA) loans for this phase’s construction and procurement of systems are European Investment Bank (EIB), Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

This phase involves the construction of 2 new lines on standard gauge tracks & the extension of both lines built in Phase 1 in all 4 directions.
