Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal today reviewed the progress of the Bangalore Suburban Railway Project. Mr Goyal said that the project should be planned in a futuristic manner to incorporate the growing needs of cities like Bengaluru. He said that Suburban Project should be based on Make In India policy and boost Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission. The Central Government had approved the Ministry of Railways’ proposal for construction of Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project Project (BSRP) in Bangalore City in the month of October 2020. The project envisages construction of four Suburban Rail Corridors with a total route length of 148.17 kilometres. The project will be implemented by Rail Infrastructure Development Company (Karnataka) Limited (KRIDE), a Joint Venture company set up by the Ministry of Railways with the Government of Karnataka as a Special Purpose Vehicle.

The project is proposed to be completed in six years at an estimated cost of 15 thousand 767 crore rupees. The project envisions creation of a dedicated Suburban Railway system in Bengaluru city to provide a safe, accessible and comfortable mode of public transport. The project will ease traffic congestion, enhance rural-urban connectivity and provide a cleaner mobility solution to lakhs of daily commuters. It will provide an economic, efficient and eco-friendly transit alternative to the Garden City of Bengaluru. It will integrate multiple modes of transport like the Metro, Railways and bus transport by constructing interchange hubs.
