After missing several deadlines, the Yelachenahalli-Silk Institute line of Metro Phase-2 will be thrown open for operations on January 14, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa announced Wednesday.
Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri will inaugurate the extension on the Green Line virtually in the presence of CM Yediyurappa. The 6.29-km elevated line will have five stations – Konanakunte Cross, Doddakallasandra, Vajrahalli, Thalaghattapura and Silk Institute.
The inauguration will be held at 4.30 pm on January 14. “After the successful launch of the train service to the Airport, here is one more step towards easing commute in Bengaluru. Namma Metro’s 6 km Yelachenahalli to Silk Institute stretch of the Green Line will be flagged off on January 14,” Yediyurappa tweeted.
