BMRCL completes Hebbal-Sarjapur Metro Line

A 37-kilometer Hebbal-Sarjapur metro line is proposed by BMRCL to the Karnataka government; state and federal government permission is pending.

The detailed project report (DPR) for the eagerly anticipated 37-kilometer Hebbal-Sarjapur line has been sent by Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to the Karnataka government for approval. It will be sent to the Union government for ultimate approval after the state government gives its permission. This corridor is a vital link that runs through Bengaluru’s central business area and Koramangala, linking Hebbal with Sarjapur, a tech powerhouse. With land acquisition costs included, the Phase 3A project is anticipated to cost around Rs 28,405 crore. It would include 28 stations, with 17 elevated and 11 underground.

“Several locations within the Central Business District are going to accessed by the proposed metro line. The portion of the road that goes underground from Koramangala to Hebbal will be about 16.80 kilometers. Important sites including Bellandur, Agara, NIMHANS, St. John’s Hospital, Central College, Cunningham Road, and Mehkri Circle would be traversed by it, an official says.

Sarjapur, Kada Agrahara Road, Sompura, Dommasandra, Muthanallur Cross, Kodathi Gate, Ambedkar Nagar, Carmelaram, Doddakannelli, Kaikondrahalli, Bellandur Gate, Ibbalur, Agara, Jakkasandra, Koramangala 3rd Block, Koramangala 2nd Block, Dairy Circle, NIMHANS, Shanti Nagar, Town Hall, KR Circle, Basaveshwara Circle, Bengaluru Golf Course, Palace Guttahalli, Mehkri Circle, Veterinary College, Ganga Nagar, and Hebbal are among the proposed stations along the corridor. Sarjapur will be the depot’s location.

The project involves interchanges at Hebbal (KR Puram-Kempegowda International Airport and Kempapura-JP Nagar Lines), Ibbalur (Central Silk Board-KR Puram Line), Dairy Circle (Kalena Agrahara-Nagawara Line) and KR Circle near Sir M Visvesvaraya station (Purple Line).

A top Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) executive has stated that external borrowing will account for about 35 percent of the project’s cost. The state and federal governments will contribute equity, cover the cost of land acquisition, and reimburse GST to make up the remaining amount. The expected cost for land purchase is Rs 5,000 crore, which will be borne by the state government. The Hebbal-Sarjapur line will be the most expensive in Namma Metro ever, costing Rs 776 crore per kilometre.
