The Kannada Development Authority has sent a notice to the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) seeking explanation for "violating the rules" by displaying signboards in Hindi. Quoting an article published in Prajavani, the sister publication of DH, the authority cited two circulars and the government notification on nameboards in shops and commercial establishments to note that BMRCL was violating laws. "This move shows unwanted imposition of Hindi and the BMRCL should reply to the notice within seven days," the authority said.

Metro feeder buses bleed BMTC 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
While there is no shortage of enthusiasm in BMTC to connect Metro with feeder services, the operation is hurting the corporation which now fears a loss of Rs 16 crore. "There were 85 buses in the feeder service which cost us Rs 2.5 crore between October 2016 and March 2017. We have deployed 120 additional buses after Namma Metro's entire Phase 1 became operational last week. The projected loss by the operation of 200 buses is about Rs 16 crore," said Ekroop Caur, managing director, BMTC. Stating that BMTC was eager to bridge the last-mile connectivity, the managing director, however, noted that the corporation can't afford making losses. "Feeder service is a good idea. It will decongest roads by encouraging people to leave their vehicles behind. If we stabilise and break-even, we won't need any help. But till then, we can't suffer losses," she said. The BMTC has written to the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to compensate for its losses. However, there has been no response from the Metro ...

Tenders called for tests for airport Metro 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has called tenders for tests for the proposed Metro to airport though the detailed project report is yet to be finished. Backed by the feasibility study, Metro officials have decided not to lose time in waiting for DPR and be ready with all the required test reports when time comes. The two separate tenders include a range of surveys from topography and soil testing land and property survey, including alignment. While the bidding process will take about a month, the BMRCL has set a deadline of six months for both successful bidders to submit the final reports.

The Metro line will meet the Airport Road (NH 44) near Gandhi Krishi Vijnan Kendra and run along the highway flyover till the trumpet flyover where it will turn right to reach airport.

City architects lament Metro stations' poor aesthetics 21.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Lost in the euphoric Namma Metro Phase 1 opening is a grim visual reminder: The station exteriors are aesthetically challenged. Now, there is a twist in that perennial lament with architects finding fault even in the designs functionality. The frustration has spilled over to the social media, where architects have now volunteered to inject some aesthetics in the design of at least the Phase 2 stations. One of them noted that even rainwater pipes were forgotten and later crudely added as an afterthought. The consensus was this: The trains are world class but the stations, particulary the exteriors, are very poorly done and badly finished. The Phase 1 stations, they charged, were designed by civil engineers who feel that architecture was an indulgence and not really necessary. The functionality issues have triggered serious debates on Facebook. The architects analysed that all the first phase stations were structurally overdesigned with a lot of "useless spaces". Specifics linked to rainwater disposal, ...
