Responding to public demand, the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project (BSRP), originally planned for 148.17 km, is now poised for an extension of approximately 4.5 km.

This expansion will be implemented along two lines within its network: Rajanakunte-Heelalige (Corridor 4) and Whitefield to Kengeri (Corridor 2). Sources indicate that the State government has already given its approval, and the project awaits the consent of the Central government.

The Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), a division of the State government, proposed this extension, and it has been endorsed by the nodal agency overseeing the project, Karnataka Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprises (K-RIDE). The proposal is currently in the process of being forwarded to the Railway Board through the South Western Railway (SWR) for further consideration.

Reportedly, according to K-RIDE, DULT has suggested extending the Heelalige corridor (Kanaka Line) by nearly one km to Chandapura, while the Kengeri stretch (Parijata Line) will be prolonged towards the Challaghatta side. The precise distance of the extension will be determined after a feasibility study, and it is currently estimated to be around 4.5 km.

Local residents had urged for the extension of the suburban line.
