BENGALURU: Demolition work for KIA Metro line nearing completion, except for three properties

Barring three properties, Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has occupied most of the assets identified for the construction of the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) metro line.

According to a report published in The Hindu, at a distance of 38 km from KR Puram to Trumpet Interchange, the demolition of all the structures is nearing completion.

For the project, BMRCL has identified 224 properties spread over 2.21 lakh square meters for the project.

“Most of the land required for the project has been handed over to the engineering section. Only a few properties belonging to the Government Flying Training School, an automobile shop at Hebbal, a car showroom near Kodigehalli and a compound wall have been demolished. Trumpet Interchange Buildings are pending with the HRD Ministry,” The Hindu quoted Channappa Goudar, General Manager (Land Acquisition), BMRCL as saying.

The land required by KIA for the Metro line from Hebbal to Trumpet Interchange was received by BMRCL sometime back from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). NHAI had initially acquired the land for the proposed high-speed rail link project while widening the highway.
