Currently, the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project (BSRP) encompasses a total of 148.17 km spread across four lines, namely Sampige, Mallige, Parijata, and Kanaka. As part of its continuous expansion, construction is underway for the 25.01-km Mallige Line, connecting Baiyappanahalli to Chikkabanavar. Additionally, K-RIDE has already received bids for the civil work contract to cover the 46.88-km stretch between Heelalige and Rajanukunte.

Looking ahead, the project is poised to take further strides with the anticipated calling of tenders for the Sampige (41.4 km, KSR Bengaluru to Devanahalli) and Parijata (35.52 km, Kengeri to Whitefield) lines by the year’s end, bolstering connectivity and transportation options in the region.

The Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project (BSRP) operates under a time-sensitive deadline, mandated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2022, with the project expected to be completed by October 2025. During a review meeting on June 6, officials emphasized the importance of anticipating future demands and asked K-RIDE to present a revised proposal, aiming to extend the BSRP’s reach to neighboring cities and towns.

Simultaneously, the commissioner of the Department of Urban Land Transport (DULT) urged the initiation of the Detailed Project Report (DPR) preparation to facilitate the extension of the BSRP to satellite towns. As the designated authority overseeing and coordinating urban mobility endeavors in the Bengaluru metropolitan area, the DULT commissioner plays a pivotal role in shaping the project’s expansion plans and ensuring enhanced connectivity for the region’s growing population.
