BMRCL Test Run on Bengaluru Metro Purple Line😍

The full east-west corridor (Purple Line) opening will fundamentally alter the mobility environment of the city by drastically cutting commuter journey times.

Connecting Bangalore: BMRCL's Test Run on Bengaluru Metro Purple Line Commences

The process of test-charging 33 KV cable and 750V DC third rail along the viaduct in the Baiyappanahalli-KR Pura and Kengeri-Chelagatta sections of Bengaluru Metro's Purple Line has begun, according to Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL).
Anjum Parvez, the managing director of BMRCL, said that the trial runs for the 2.1 km Byyappanahalli-KR Pura and 2 km Kengeri-Challaghatta Metro sections would start simultaneously on August 22.
This is one of the initial actions being done in order to get the KR Pura-Whitefield and Kengeri-Chalaghatta lines up and running by the end of August.
The Purple Line's whole East-West corridor will thereafter be fully operating.

As part of its usual operating practice, BMRCL has published a public notice warning people against entering viaduct areas without permission due to the risk of coming into touch with 750V third rail or 33 KV cable.
In order to ensure that all electrical systems are operational, test-charging is the initial stage, according to BL Yashwant Chavan, chief public relations officer of BMRCL. Then there will be static and dynamic tests, followed by service tests that involve operating trains on the track while it is in use.
Subject to CMRS certification, both lines will be ready for commercial operation by the end of August.
The current 39.4 km operating segment of the Purple Line connects Whitefield (Kadugodi) to KR Puram and Byyappanahalli to Kengeri.

Many commuters have been inconvenienced by the gap between KR Pura and Byyappanahalli, particularly technical workers travelling to areas like Mahadevapura, ITPB, and Kadugodi.
Office workers will have the choice to live in more reasonably priced locations close to Challaghatta and commute to their places of employment in Whitefield and other areas after the missing link is finished.
The opening of the full east-west line will drastically cut commuter travel times, revolutionising the city's mobility system.

According to BMRCL, the trip from Challaghatta to Whitefield (Kadugodi) will take roughly one and a half hours, however, using a bus or a cab during rush hour typically takes more than two hours.

When the Purple Line is fully operating, at least 70,000 people per day would use Namma Metro, according to BMRCL. Given how comfortable Namma Metro makes city transit, we predict that more people will choose it.
The Purple Line extension's Byappanahalli-Whitefield Metro portion was supposed to be finished by December 2020, but there have been a number of delays.
The KR Pura-Byappanahalli stretch saw extra delays as a result of South Western Railway's insistence on using OWG rather than a composite girder for the Metro's rail crossover at Benniganahalli. The scarcity of steel made the delay even worse.

The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) will begin testing two additional metro lines next month as part of its efforts to enhance commuters' travel experiences. Byyappanahalli-KR Pura and Kengeri-Challaghatta lines, each measuring 2.1 and 2 kilometres respectively, would be operational by the end of August 2023, increasing commuters' alternatives for transportation.
