Bengaluru: Namma Metro Commuters Face Inconveniences Due To Ongoing Repair Works At Trinity Station


The Namma Metro commuters on the Purple Line (Baiyappanahalli-Mysore Road) is struggling to cope with the inconvenience as the repair works on a pillar is progressing near the Trinity station, reports Deccan Herald.

Despite the deployment of almost 100 buses, rush at the metro stations such as Baiyappanahalli was high. Metro trains could not run between MG Road and Indiranagar, and the buses had the tough task of connecting the station and ferry passengers up till Cubbon park.

“A metro train carries about 1000 people, but we can only carry a maximum of 60 to 70 people. Some commuters on the foot-board had to be forced to wait for the next bus,” a staffer from the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation said.

Buses were deployed on the same route as that of the metro, but the traffic congestions at MG Road, Trinity and Halasuru stretched to a nearly 45-minute commute in the peak hour.
