E-mail Print PDF


Bangalore, April 27: Karnataka government decided to launch a monorail project and unveiled plans for Metro-II on Monday, April 26 to cover more areas in a bid to further decongest the city's roads.

The first phase of the monorail would cover 31 km, Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa told mediapersons after a meeting attended by Chief Secretary S V Ranganath, Infrastructure Development Minister G Janardhana Reddy and Infrastructure Development Secretary V Madhu.

The Monorail would function as feeder service to metro-rail, and per-km cost of building monorail is pegged at Rs 140 crore, officials said. The first phase would run from Hebbal to J P Nagar (Bannerghatta Road) along the western portion of outer ring road.

"We had a detailed discussion on the monorail," Yeddyurappa said.
