Metro Rail from Bengaluru to Hosur?

Karnataka government has cleared the Metro rail project up to Tamil Nadu border from Bengaluru to Bommasandra leaving the neighboring state to take it forward to another eight kilometers to reach the Industrial town of Hosur.


Karnataka government’s decision in this regard was revealed to newspersons by a congress member of Lok sabha from Krishnagiri Dr A Chellakumar. He said phase two of the Bengaluru Metro rail project intends to connect RV Road metro station to Bommasandra near the interstate border. Extension of the line into Tamil Nadu up to Hosur was cleared by the Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai recently.


Tamil Nadu government should conduct a project report for extending the Metro line to Hosur from the border point a distance of 20 kilometers


Dr Chellakumar said he had raised the issue of extending metro service up to Hosur in Lok Sabha and the same was taken up by Bengaluru Metro Rail corporation in its proposal to  the Union ministry of Housing and Urban development, the nodal ministry for Metro rail projects in the country. This is the dream project for thousands of people in Hosur, who regularly commute to work to Bengaluru. If the project is implemented, it will benefit people of both States socially and economically.

The MP said he will soon meet Chief Minister MK Stalin to discuss the proposal.
