A DH article dated 19-Nov-2009 stated that Metro Phase-2 would have two routes: one from Kathriguppe to ITPL, & the other from IIM-B to Nagawara. They would cover IIM-B, Jayadeva Hospital Circle, Dairy Circle, Vellara Junction, Old Airport Road, BEML, ITPL, Whitefield & Kattriguppe. The total length is about 55 km.
DMRC, as consultants are yet to finalise the financing model for phase II, & are working on three options: 100 per cent private funding (with a provision for the required viability gap funding), complete funding by government (both, Centre & State), & PPP (with government sharing civil works, with private partners taking charge of systems & operation).
If everything goes according to plan, work on phase II is slated to begin in mid 2010.
The combined (Phs 1 &2) routes according to this plan will appx'ly be as shown on the map below (click on it for biger image).
