The suburban train project that was recently inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to give a big boost to the realty sector, especially in areas next to railway tracks. Areas like Nelaman­gala and Hesaraghatta will get closer to suburban trains as it is proposed to construct a track from Chikkabanavara station. Railway Gollahalli is set to get a big boost. Railway Gollahalli is a major junction that connects Hesaraghatta via Gopalapura on one side, Nelamangala, Chikkamadure and Doddaballapur roads. Residential areas will flourish with increased connectivity. The suburban train corridors are spread from Kengeri to Whitefield, KSR Bengaluru railway station to Devanahalli (via Yeshwanthpur), Chikkabanavara to Baiyyappanahalli and Heelalige to Rajanukunte. There will be a total of 57 stations. “There is a railway station at Nelamangala where trains from Hassan travel to Bengaluru City. As areas like Railway Gollahalli are nearer to Chikkabanavara, they can easily hop on to...

suburban trains in the future and head to different parts of the city without getting stuck in city traffic,” said an official. Under the project to be implemented via joint venture company K-RIDE, a total rail route of 148.17 km will be constructed in four suburban rail corridors; 41.4 km of Bengaluru-Devanahalli; 25.01 km of Baiyappanahalli-Chikkabanavara; 35.52 km of Kengeri-Bengaluru Cantonment and 46.24 km of Heelalige-Rajanukunte sectors.Along with suburban trains, the Karnataka Road Development Corporation (KRDCL) is constructing an alternative road to the airport from Nelamangala. The roads will ensure a signal-free bypass to the airport from other districts of the state. The 39-km stretch starts from Nelamangala, Kodipalya, Rajanukunte and KIAL and is taken up at a cost of Rs.310 crore. It will help people travelling from Hassan, Tumakuru, and from other districts of the state. Another important factor aiding the growth of this road is a four-lane flyover at Rajanakunte. Properties around Nelamangala and Hesaraghatta Road are not just known for being affordable, but also for offering excellent basic amenities including good road connectivity, water and electricity connection. Hesaraghatta Road is well connected with Nelamangala, Yelahanka, Bengaluru city as well as Dodda­ballapur. So, it is a hit among prospective home-buyers.

Rail Infrastructure Development Company (Karnataka) Limited (K-RIDE) opened the financial bids for the project on Monday.

will take us two to three weeks to award the work. Now the tender appreciation committee will go through the details of the offer. If found satisfactory, the offer will be placed before the (K-RIDE) board, which will decide on issuing the letter of acceptance. All this may take less than 30 days,” a senior official in K-RIDE said.
The company has quoted Rs 850 crore for the project.
The official said the lowest bidder’s quote was “more or less in line” with the cost estimated within the organisation. Most of the work (17.5 km) is at grade level. Elevated viaducts make only a small segment of the line, he noted.
As per tender conditions, the contractor will have 27 months to complete the work once the tender is awarded. Officials said there will be no scope for delay in the project. The railway ministry has already given advanced approval for the entire alignment of corridor-2.
“The state government has already allocated Rs 500 crore in this year’s budget. As for the loan, negotiations are in the final stage with German and French banks. The pre-appraisal missions from Frankfurt and Paris visited K-RIDE recently. They stayed here for a week and studied every dimension of the project. They also met railway and Karnataka government officers and held meetings with public transport authorities. The two banks have said they are keen to finance the project,” the official added.
The 148.17-km suburban rail project has four corridors. Corridor-2, named Mallige (Jasmine), has been taken up on priority. It will have 14 stations, including three elevated stations at Hebbal, Lottegollahalli, and Yeshwantpur.
