Three days after Namma Phase II was conditionally approved, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said pre-feasibility and detailed project reports would be prepared under Phase 2A and 3, through Rail India Technical and Economic Service.

In a statement on Friday, BMRCL said that the reports would be commissioned for a total range of 150.94 km for Phase 2A and 3 including the following lines- Nagavara to Airport, Outer Ring Road, including Hebbal to Ganapathi Temple, Bannerghatta Road via Silk Board and Ganapathy temple and Bannerghatta Road to Hebbal, Hoskerehalli to ORR, Peripheral Ring Road to Tollgate and Sarjapur to Yelahanka.

“The time required to prepare the pre-feasibility studies is six to nine months and detailed project report will take about one and half years,” the statement said. BMRCL also said that the project report for a mass rapid transport system had already been carried out by the Bangalore Airport Rail Link Ltd between PRR to Tollgate and part of Outer Ring Road.
