BSRP or Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project can be a game changer for Bangalore.

The tech capital of the country has been notorious for its traffic congestion and is currently with its increasing population only going to get worse in the future.

The Namma Metro scheme and the roadway could only help in a part, but as mentioned before, these will also fall inadequate as the city gets crowded. Thus next big hope for decongesting Bengaluru is the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project.

The recent Whitefield Metro rail project and the upcoming East Bangalore metro connectivity has actually sped up the hopes for BSRP now. Though it was on the cards for the longest time, last June 21, 2022, the Hon Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the project and set a deadline of 40 months for the completion of BSRP.

K-RIDE or Rail Infrastructure Development Company (Karnataka) Limited will be executing the project.

BSRP in the initial phases will be focused on 4 routes named Sampige Line, Mallige Line, Parijatha Line, and Kanaka Line.
