    DPR for the 37-kilometer Sarjapur-Hebbal line is now ready

    Project aims to tackle traffic congestion in crucial city areas

    This project integrates with existing metro lines at strategic points

Bengaluru is gearing up for a substantial expansion of its Namma Metro network, as the detailed project report (DPR) for the 37-kilometer Sarjapur-Hebbal line is now ready. With an estimated cost of Rs 16,543 crore, this development, originally outlined in the Comprehensive Mobility Plan-2020, aims to tackle traffic congestion in crucial city areas, providing seamless connectivity for both tech professionals and residents.

The proposed route begins with an elevated corridor near the IT hub in Sarjapur, transitioning underground as it reaches Koramangala. Passing through the central business district via a complex tunnel network, the line emerges on Ballari Road, featuring elevated stations at Ganganagar and Hebbal.

What distinguishes this project is its integration with existing metro lines at strategic points. Urban planners anticipate that this new line will play a pivotal role in easing city traffic congestion by traversing through core city areas. The strategic connections with existing metro lines under Phase II A and B are expected to significantly enhance the overall commuting experience for Bengaluru residents.

A noteworthy aspect of the project is the proposed KR Circle Metro station near UVCE, seamlessly linked with the Sir M Visvesvaraya station through a subway, facilitating a smooth transition for passengers.

Furthermore, the Sarjapur-Hebbal line aims to address longstanding congestion issues along Ballari Road, with seven strategically located stations at Basaveshwara Circle, Bengaluru Golf Course, Palace Guttahalli, Mehkri Circle, Veterinary College, Ganganagar, and Hebbal.
