The Nagasandra-Madavara line, spanning 3 kilometers, has been under construction since 2017 and is set to be accessible to the public in September or October. This line will play a vital role in enhancing connectivity and easing travel for commuters.

The longest of the four new lines, the RV Road-Bommasandra line, covering an impressive distance of 19.14 kilometers, will open in October or November. This line holds immense significance as it connects Electronics City, a prominent IT hub, with other parts of the city.
