Bengaluru: Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) and Bengaluru Division of South West Railways (SWR) to provide multimodal transit integration facilities for passengers through Yeshwantpur railway and Metro stations.

A release by BMRCL state, “This is aimed at mitigating constraints being faced by the passengers like a lack of direct and easy connectivity between railway and Metro stations, narrow access roads to the railway station on both east and west side, lack of access to Metro station for the residents living at east of the railway station, difficulty in reaching the railway station from areas west of NH-4 (Tumkur-Bangalore Road), absence of bus stand nearby and inadequate space for auto stand and limited parking facility.”

“The new MOU will facilitate BMRCL and SWR for use by both railway and Metro passengers. One foot over bridge (FoB-1) of 82 m length will be constructed connecting the railway station’s existing FoB with Metro station’s concourse, another FoB-2 of 230 m length branching out from FoB-1 and then connecting east side of the railway station to facilitate seamless connectivity,” BMRCL said in a statement.
