After Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) commenced operations from Kengeri to Mysuru Road, there has been an increase in demand to integrate Namma Metro with other modes of public transport.
Jnanabharathi metro station is one such station where integration of infrastructure will help commuters. It is just a few metres away from South Western Railways’ halt station. While BMRCL plans to build a foot overbridge (FoB) to connect the two stations, SWR has started work on a FoB to connect the

platforms at the halt station.
At present, three pairs of trains stop at the halt station: two pairs of Bengaluru-Mysuru MEMU trains and one pair of Bengaluru-Chamarajanagar passenger trains.
Chief PRO of SWR Aneesh Hegde said work on the FoB to connect the platforms has begun and will be completed by March 2022 at an estimated cost of ₹2.02 crore. This will come as a huge relief to passengers. Every day hundreds of people including garment workers put their lives at risk and walk on the busy track to reach Mysuru Road. In the absence of an FoB, train passengers from Mandya, Ramanagaram and other areas also walk on the tracks to cross platforms.
“The construction of the FoB at Jnanabharathi is a long-pending demand. After providing basic amenities, to increase footfall, the SWR should also give stoppage for some of the express trains at the halt station,” said Abhishek R., a railway enthusiast.
 

Anchepalya residents demand metro station
When it’s ready, passengers who want to use Namma Metro services will be able to use the FoB that will connect the halt and nearby metro station. “The FoB will be built connecting the railway station with the concourse of the metro station. The design has been finalised. It may take six to seven months to complete the work,” said BMRCL Chief PRO B.L. Yeshwanth Chavan.
The BMRCL is building a second FoB at Kengeri TTMC station on the extended Purple Line.

Meanwhile, the BMRCL has apologized for not providing information in Kannada on the banners
The Mysuru Road-Kengeri metro line recorded a ridership of about 7,500 on the first day of its commercial operations on Monday, amid confusion over the new software at the automatic fare collection gates.
As per the information shared by officials from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), 7,476 people exited from the six stations of the new extension, taking the overall daily ridership to 1.83 lakh.
Meanwhile,

delay in recharging the smart cards and compatibility issues marked the first day of the operations.
“There were some compatibility issues that had to be rectified while recharging problems arose due to the adoption of the latest technology that supports the QR code payment mode. It may take about a week for commuters and staffers to get used to the new system,” a BMRCL source said.
BMRCL apology
Meanwhile, the BMRCL has apologized for not providing information in Kannada on the banners erected during the inauguration ceremony on Sunday.
“All signboards had information in Kannada as well as English. However, the banner on the main stage had information only in English. I received objections from the media and general public. I apologize for the error and will ensure that such errors are not repeated,” the BMRCL chief public relations officer said in a message.
While the gesture was appreciated by many citizens on social media, some noted that the BMRCL has not learnt its lessons despite several protests over the last few years.

BENGALURU: The opening up of Metro's Mysuru Road-Kengeri Line could play a crucial role in making daily commute of office goers between Mysuru and neighbouring towns and Bengaluru faster and comfortable. However, it is crucial to put in place infrastructure for easy pedestrian access between the new Metro stations and the railway stations in their vicinity.
While the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) stresses that regular commuters between Bengaluru and Mysuru and those residing enroute will benefit enormously as the road traffic on Mysuru Road can be bypassed using Metro, those expected to use them think infrastructure for it is sorely missing.

Detailing the issues when interchanging between different modes of transport, S. Yogendra, rail activist and a member of Mysuru Grahakara Parishat Users told The New Indian Express, “The Jnanabharati Metro and railway stations are connected but there are only a few trains that stop at this station. The two Metro stations of Kengeri Bus Terminal as well as Kengeri as well as Nayandahalli are not connected with their respective railway stations which are at a distance of nearly 800 metres from each other. The road to be crossed to access them is narrow, unhygienic and dangerous too.” An option that can be considered by Railways is upgrading the Jnanabharati railway station to help commuters interchange easily here, he added.  
A senior railway official said that 30 pairs of trains ply between KSR and Mysuru daily. “Of them 25 pairs stop at Kengeri while two pairs of MEMU trains stop at Jananabharati railway station,” he said.
The Kengeri Bus Terminal Metro station is just 100 metres away from its Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) Kengeri TTMC bus stand which has one Karnataka State Transport Corporation (KSRTC) bay but there is no connecting bridge as of now. Anjum Parwez, BMRCL Managing Director said, “We are ready with the designs and will be putting up a Foot Over Bridge at the earliest as soon as the line becomes operational. Multi-modal integration is a priority for Metro.” 
B T Prabhakar Reddy, Chief Traffic Manager (Operations), KSRTC, said, “We will be keenly watching the travel pattern as soon as the line starts. If running of more buses in the direction towards Mysuru is required, we will introduce them soon. Buses from Mysuru Road Satellite Bus Terminal towards Kengeri run with 70% occupancy and there is space to take on more commuters. We can even consider starting and terminating buses from Kengeri.
40 feeder buses
BMTC will be introducing 30 feeder buses (30-seats) and 10 regular buses along the Mysuru Road-Kengeri Line, said a senior official. “At present, the feeder routes planned are between RR Nagar and interior areas, Jnanabharati and surroundings and Kengeri towards Bidadi and two other directions from here. These will only be short distance buses. In addition, 10 regular buses will be introduced to cater to the expected traffic in the area. The detailed list will be released in a day.”

Sources in the BMRCL said they still hope to commission the line by the end of August
The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) on Thursday completed the two-day inspection of the western extension of the Purple Line from Mysuru Road to Kengeri. 
Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials said the CRS began the inspection around 10 am and looked into physical infrastructure, including track parametres, third rail and other arrangements.

per the plan, the CRS visited the metro stations and checked the station control room, elevators, escalators and other passenger amenities.
From platform clearings to electrical infrastructure and signalling and telecommunication systems, the team — led by CRS A K Rai — looked into the details of the project.
"Several oral instructions were given with regard to the corrections. A report, including detailed suggestions and corrections, may be given in the next one or two weeks," an official said.
Sources in the BMRCL said they still hope to commission the line by the end of August.
"All tests, including the speed test, have been concluded. If the safety goals are met, the line commissioning will happen in August without any further delay."
The extension has six stations: Nayandahalli, RR Nagar, Jnanabharathi, Pattanagere, Kengeri Bus Terminal and Kengeri.
Meanwhile, officials have set December 2022 as the deadline to complete the nearly 1.5-km stretch of the line to Challaghatta, where a station and depot will also come up.

Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) expects the CRS inspection by the end of June. "Work on the Reach 2 extension from Nayandahalli to Kengeri is almost completed. The trial runs have been done. The line will be open to the public from July.

As per the metro authorities, the extended line will benefit 75,000 passengers per day. The fare for travelling from Byappanahalli to Kengeri would be Rs 56 and from Kengeri to Silk Institute would be Rs 60.
The line comprises six stations each with a rooftop designed for installation of solar power of 250 kW capacity. The parking facility will be provided at Nayandahalli, Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Jnanabharathi, Pattanagere, and at Kengeri Bus Terminal, which has two-level parking. Pattanagere and Kengeri do not have a parking facility.
