A fully underground 34-km-long Inner Ring Metro (IRM) line, proposed by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), can help trigger an overall 77% rise in Namma Metro’s ridership by 2030, reveals a study by the IISc transportation engineering lab. With this, the city’s total metro network will go up to 203 km.
Based on the lab’s input, the IISc had proposed the IRM corridor with a station at the institute, to the state chief secretary on March 23, 2019. The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) had later asked the lab to conduct a demand assessment and evaluation of the corridor.
