After years of speculation, construction of Namma Metro project under phase II on Mysore Road is underway. The contractor of the project awarded by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has started work.
Though Namma Metro is preparing for a June-launch of services between Magadi Road and Mysore Road on the East-West Corridor, for the first time in the history of the Bengaluru Metro project, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) will run a train through a tunnel on March 12.
Bangalore Mayor DV Venkatesh Murthy has warned the contractor of road work of Mysore Road that if he does not finish the work by April 30, the work will be transferred to Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited (KRIDL). Also, the contractor would be banned from taking up projects for two years
