The Bengaluru Greenline metro, which will link Nagasandra and Madavara, will finally be open to the public in August after a five-year wait.
The three stations over a three-kilometre stretch were planned to be finished in 2017. However, issues with land acquisition and other difficulties caused the project to be postponed. The major exhibition location, the BIEC, will be connected to the city’s periphery by the Nagasandra-Madavara segment. Additionally, it would provide commuters who drive between the two locations with much-needed relief.
According to the BMRCL, the entity in charge of the Bengaluru Metro, the section between Nagasandra and Madavara is now 95% finished. Within the coming weeks, the remaining work should be finished. It will be Bengaluru’s first metro line to connect the east and west sides of the city. Additionally, it will be the first metro line in the city to connect to the BIEC.
