Bengaluru Metro Station project on airport route shelved as real estate firm pulls out

6 Dec 2022 , 02:02 PM

Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) will no longer build the Bettahalasur station in northern Bengaluru. This is mainly because the real estate firm Embassy Group backed out of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in 2020.

The metro station was not at first included in the original plans, but it got introduced only after a request from the Embassy Group. So, as they move forward, the plans to construct the metro will be dropped, stated BMRCL’s managing director Anjum Parvez.

Bettahalasur station was supposed to be part of the Outer Ring Road-Airport Metro route that would have connected the city to Kempegowda International Airport. The Embassy Group was to carry out interior design, fittings, and other facilities at the station with an investment of approximately Rs7 crore under the Rs140 crore MoU.

Parvez added that if private companies agree to invest in the construction, BMRCL is open to new ideas for expanding Bengaluru's metro rail network.

According to an Embassy Group official, the company has collaborated closely with government agencies such as BMRCL, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), and the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to improve public infrastructure in the city. However, no further information is received about the MoUs signed.

According to Parvez, BMRCL intends to open the new metro line between Whitefield and KR Puram.

In addition, permissions have already been obtained for a new station near Jakkur Aerodrome. The metro line connecting the Outer Ring Road and the airport will be completed by 2025.

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai approved Bengaluru's Rs16,328 crore Phase-3 metro project on November 18. The 44.65-kilometer project will include two corridors, one west of the Outer Ring Road and the other via Magadi Road.
