Bangalore Metro services on green line to be disrupted on thursday night
Namma Metro services on the Green Line will be disrupted on Thursday night due to maintenance works. The disruption will be between National College and Yeshwantpur metro stations due to track maintenance work at Mahakavi Kuvempu Road station.
The Green Line of the metro extends from Yelachenahalli in the south to Nagasandra in the north and crosses Majestic station along the way.
Bangalore Metro Rail Transport Corporation (BMRCL) officials confirmed that the last end-to-end train from Yelachenahalli station to Nagasandra station will leave at 9:28 pm and from Nagasandra to Yelachenahalli, the last train will depart at 9:30 pm.
Following that, the metro services will be running only between Yelachenahalli and National College stations and between Nagasandra and Yeshwantpur stations. This means that the last train to Nagasandra and Yelachenahalli will leave from Majestic station at 9:50 pm.
There are currently seven six-car trains running in the city’s metro service but only one of the plies on the Green Line due to higher demand on the Purple Line of the metro.
Earlier this month, an additional six-coach train was introduced by Bengaluru Metro officials on the Purple Line running from east-to-west in the city taking the total of such trains to seven. BMRCL plans to introduce three more six-coach trains from April.
This comes after the first six-car metro running on the Green Line of the Namma Metro between Nagasandra in the north and Yelachenahalli in the south was flagged off in January. On the same day, two six-car trains were added to the Purple Line connecting Mysuru Road and Baiyappanahalli.
Until June 2018, all the Namma Metro trains running in the city consisted of three coaches.
