BMRCL decided to allow K-RIDE’s suburban rail corridor below the Namma Metro section at Benniganahalli. Both run parallel for about 500m and this will save a minimum of ₹150 crore in terms of land acquisition. Heelalige-Yelahanka-Rajanukunte suburban line (Kanaka Line) will run below KR Puram-Kempegowda International Airport (Blue Line) corridor.
The suburban rail will run below the Namma Metro viaduct for a length of 500m adjacent to Benniganahalli flyover. There will be no double-decker structure as each one will be independent. The KR Puram-KIA airport Metro corridor’s rail-level height will be 18-20m above ground.
