Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the KR Puram – Whitefield metro line on March 25 in his seventh visit to the poll bound state this year.
Ahead of the inauguration of the new metro line in Bengaluru, the BMRCL (Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited) has lit up the Whitefield metro station with colorful lights. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the KR Puram – Whitefield metro line on March 25 in his seventh visit to the poll bound state this year.
Many twitter users, including the mobility infra pages shared the pictures of decked up Whitefield metro station. A post from Bangalore Metro Updates read, “#Whitefield Metro Station is all decked up for inauguration on 25-March-2023 by Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodiSir. Beautifully illuminated for inauguration. This #Ugadi happens to be the Sweetest one. Just 3 days to go.”
Another user called Hemant shared a video of Whitefield station illuminated with lights for the inauguration. He wrote, “Whitefield Metro getting ready for inauguration.”
After a long wait, the Whitefield stretch which is considered as the IT hub in Bengaluru got the metro connectivity, but it will only be limited to KR Puram as of now. The purple line which begins from Baiyappanahalli will later be connected to the KR Puram station.
According to the government, KR Puram – Whitefield metro line will have seven trains running with the time frequency of 10 – 12 minutes. This new metro line will reduce the travel time between KR Puram and Whitefield, which is usually a bottle neck for regular commuters. According to the government, it will just take 24 minutes on the metro to reach Whitefield from KR Puram, which otherwise takes about an hour. The KR Puram - Whitefield metro line is of 13.2 kilometers and will have 12 metro stations.
