This is an excellent route map and project, which is very very essential and need for Bengalurian to get releife from daily trafic. This is connecting core areas of Bangalore, Majestic, Indiranager, Vidhanasouda, White field, Electronic city,Residential areas like Rajajinagar, Malleswaram, indiranagar, Jayanagar, JP Nagar, KR Puram. Hope that future plan will connect newly coming up area like like Air Port, Hardware City, Nandhi hills, Devanahalli, connect to more residential areas.
There Must be one new Lane On the same Tracks, Without changing Trains. frequent trains running within the circle Inbound and OutBound (Both Directions) from (MG Road) ~ (JayaDeva Hospital) ~ (Lal Bagh) ~ Sir MV Towers(Mejestic)
The routing has been intelligently planned. Routes have color coded but there is no mention which one come first and which one next. Also there is no mention of elevated or underground routes. Whether metro will come on existing roads or elsewhere. Jayadeva flyover is already cluttered. Hosur road from silk board towards bommasandra is pretty wide and can accommodate metro
It will be better if they can extend gottigare -Nagawara route till Hedgenagar with a stop in Thanisandra. which will be helpful to thousands of employees who is working in Manyata Tech Park.Thanisandra is very close to the back gate of Manyata.
It is planned to extend the the metro from RV road (near Rajalaxmi Kalyan Mantap) to Electronic city. This means having a chnageover station at RV road station. Instead BMRC should seriously consider starting of the new line change over from Banashankari station, where BMTC already has a large bus depot and terminus. This will facilitate easy change over for passengers using the Metro and taking buses to non-Metro services areas and thus integrating different modes of city transport. Perhaps they can consider a small strech underground from Banashankari, if there are land constrains. This should be considered even with the additional cost of underground stretch. On the long run this will be a better proposal option in view of clustering at the RV road station, which lack the bus connectivity.
Sir, I am from kurubharahalli. Even we need metro train to pass towards from rajajinagar towards modi eye hospital, shanker mutta, kurubharahalli, cauvery nagar..these are highly populated areas. Has there is a lots of daily labours use to travel from this place. So, I request for this.
All is fine on the Metro. But BMTC should ensure that one the metro is on , they should reduce the bus services in these areas, so that (1) Roads become free (2) These buses can be used to cater other areas.
I am not seeing any Metro plan from Silk Board to Whitefield. This route will help in reducing traffic jams at Silk borad, marathalli and whitefield and will be very useful for people travelling daily to IT parks.
Stations on phase 1 built and operational are lacking toilet facilities. If you want Bangalore to be a clean city and mimic Singapore, toilet facilities are absolutely necessary in metro stations. This way people will not defecate on walls and streets.
Please include this and make this a must for phase 2, 3 etc.
could we extend the metro line 4 to the Airport via places like thanisandra, hegdenagara… imho, this should probably be done before more apartment complexes come up there and traffic increases making it difficult to construct on time…
i think the experts would know better about the feasibility of such a plan. please let me know
Sir, I m resident of kurubharahalli. Actually metro passes towards rajajinagar 1st block(navarang theatre), but if extends via modi hospital , shankermutta, kurubharahalli, summanahlli, sunkada katte…will be better. As more people travel towards majestic from this areas. If it extends, it will b more useful for the residence of these areas. I plz request for this extension of routes.
Nice to see whole route map of Phase I and II. My honest request is that the Ist Phase project be completed as early as possible. Its about 5 years since its start, Vijayanagar is waiting for Metro though the work from Magadi road to Mysore Road is completed. Can the Metro Think of starting Metro train from Magadi road to Mysore Road or from Leprosy Hospital to Mysore Road. When the entire stretch of Mysore road to Byappanahalli be opened for public? We are dreaming.
The Metro project seems to have missed out connectivity to other form of transport. Take the example of Banashankari Metro station and recently built bus terminals. They are at a distance of approximately 500 metres. This junction is as chaotic as possible already. People get down and get into buses at the traffic signal instead of going into the terminal. All kinds of vendors are blocking the road, so called footpaths etc. Now adding to this will be people getting down from Metro and wanting to catch a bus to their destinations, and vice a versa. They will all converge on this traffic signal area and will create complete confusion. WHY COULD NOT THEY BUILD THE METRO ADJOINING THE EXISTING BUS TERMINAL SO THAT PEOPLE CAN JUST WALK ACROSS ON THE WALKWAY WITHOUT GETTING ONTO THE ROAD? Very similar situation on the Byappanahalli to MG road line. After Ulsoor station the line takes a right turn at Adarsh theatre and enters narrow Chinmaya Mission road and then again takes a left turn on to 100 feet road to eventually rejoin VIvekananada road- Old Madras road. If the line were to continue to run on the Vivekanand road a station could have been provided at the Indiranagar shopping complex and adjoining KSRTC depo. This could have been an important hub for people to change from Metro to Bus and vice a versa. Third example is the planned new line from RV road junction to electronic city, on the south line. As per the plan the line is starting from a mid point, where buses will not be available, from where Jayanagar Bus stand is almost one KM away, from where getting autos will be impossible. Why could this new line start from BSK so that there will be interconnectivity to both another Metro line and buses?
Such poor design can be found in many places.
