Bangalore City: Proposed extension of Foot Over Bridge from Platform No 10 to MG colony.

With further Escalators,  one more Foot Over Bridge which is still hanging  and multilevel car parking,  new entry from next to Kody Circle of DRM Office,  these should make some difference to City Station and further 3.5 Acers of land with SWR,  lets see how they will make difference to citizens

Even though both tenders value is small,  purose is very improtant and further SWR should invest in removing bottelnecks  by investing MEMU Maintenance shed at Bayyappanhalli which will not cost more then Rs 10 Crore.

Status of City Station Pedestrian facility works progress

Status of Pedestrian facility at Bangalore City Station during last 5 years on 1. New Foot Over Bridge connecting all 10 Platforms on Cantonment end ( Chennai end ), 2. Extending existing FOB to Milk colony with wider FOB, 3. Extending subway from PF-1 to entrance of city station. Here is the status of all three works from SWR, after 4/5 years, SWR struggling to complet these simple works like BMRC struggling for MG road Station skywalk to connect plaza theater side since 3 years. Wake up SWR Bangalore, these are very much needed for passengers. How can SWR sleep on these during last 4 years where Railway Board has given clearance and funds too. No one to blame here except SWR officials only.

Already Bangalore is lacking proper pedestrain facility,  even railways are also playing to BBMP / BDA actions.

Getting to the bus stand from the railway station is an ordeal. The sub way is really bad. On so many occasions I have been forced to take the bus to Kengeri because of the stench of the sub way.

Only METRO station at Milk Colony near Magadi road will be connected to City station existing FOB with  walkalator

New Railway  station building is planed for Okalipuram Birdge of 6 floors  near Rajajinagar entrance,  may be the above tender is for that looks like.  I saw clearly station building location at PF 7-8  entrance close to  Yesvanthpur line next to Church Here Railway has large chunck of land currenly holding.
