"Bengaluru Metro's Pink Line Tunneling Set for Completion by August 31"

Bengaluru's metro network is set to witness a significant milestone with the impending completion of the Pink Line's extensive underground tunnel. Connecting Bannerghatta Road to Nagawara, this critical infrastructure project is on track to be finalized by August this year. The 13-kilometer tunneling endeavor has progressed through three phases, with the final phase currently at an impressive 94% completion rate.

According to a Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) official, the third phase involves excavating 935 meters of tunnel between KG Halli and Nagawara, utilizing advanced Tunnel Boring Machines named Tunga and Bhadra. Tunga, launched southwards on February 2, and Bhadra, initiated northwards on April 2, are making significant strides. Tunga is projected to complete its part of the tunnel by July 31, while Bhadra is anticipated to conclude its tunnelling process by August 31.

The successful culmination of the tunneling phases will pave the way for subsequent track laying, civil works, and the installation of necessary infrastructure for the metro line. Spanning 21.26 kilometers and comprising 18 stations, the Kalena Agrahara to Nagawara stretch is a vital addition to Bengaluru's metro network, incorporating both elevated sections and underground tunnels to ensure seamless connectivity across the city.

Once operational, the Pink Line will significantly alleviate transportation challenges and enhance connectivity for Bengaluru's residents and commuters. BMRCL remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering the project on schedule, ensuring that the metro system continues to serve as a dependable and efficient mode of public transportation for the city's burgeoning population.

Meanwhile, plans for the Hosahalli-Kadabagere Metro works are underway, pending approval from the Centre. Despite initial anticipation for approval before the announcement of Lok Sabha election dates, the process has been delayed due to the election code of conduct. BMRCL has commenced preliminary works, including land acquisition, with plans to execute the project in phases, utilizing over 100 acres of identified land.

Additionally, discussions are ongoing regarding operational details, including train bogie operation and the development of Detailed Project Reports (DPR) for Metro and road flyovers to enhance connectivity across various stretches in Bengaluru.
