The long-awaited foot overbridge between the Yeshwantpur metro and railway stations is set to become reality. Not only that, the BMRCL has even planned to connect the nearby Sandal Soap Factory metro station with the Yeshwanthpur bus terminal and the IISc.
Ever since the Yeshwantpur metro station opened in 2014, transport activists and passengers have consistently complained about the lack of connectivity with the adjacent railway station.
The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) now says it has signed a memorandum of understanding with the South Western Railway to work on 10 projects that seek to develop the two metro stations as part of a multimodal transport hub.
From the 82-metre-long FOB between the metro stations, a second FOB, 230 metres long, will branch out to connect the eastern and western sides of the railway and metro stations and the island platforms of the railways.
