Connecting key economic and residential hubs in Bangalore

Project

Bangalore Metro Rail Project (Phase 2A & 2B)

Country

India

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited is extending the city’s Mass Rapid Transit system through Phases 2A & 2B of the Bangalore Metro Rail Project.

This will extend the metro line on the Outer Ring Road line and provide a new Airport Line. The new stretch forms an arterial link in the city, connecting to the airport and various key economic and residential hubs. 


In 2020, SMEC was appointed to provide detailed design for the elevated viaduct and 18 metro stations along the Outer Ring Road, from Central Silk Board to Hennur Bellary Road (HBR) Layout.


Our Role

Our specialists are delivering complicated and varied design concepts, including concept to construction drawings on architecture, structure, electrical elements, plumbing and drainage, fire detection, fire-fighting services and traffic diversion plans. Our role also includes review of other elements such as alignments, temporary works and as-built drawings.


Architectural concepts and designs, which are being delivered in BIM, maximise property development area and optimise space in the stations for commercial opportunities. The station buildings will reflect Bangalore’s "Garden City" ethos while ensuring safety, sustainability, and high performance.


Community impact

Bangalore is one of India's most congested cities. While metro rail systems are already in operation in some parts of the city, this project will significantly improve public transportation solutions and benefit more than 11 million residents.
