The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited recently announced that metro services in Bengaluru will be partially affected on the green line for Sunday (September 27) and Monday (September 28) between RV Road to Yelachenahalli. The services will be affected in this stretch as the BMRCL will carry out testing work for the soon to be commissioned Yelachenahalli to Anjanapura line. Normal services will be revived from Tuesday morning.

Train services in the purple line (Myuru Road-Byappanahalli) line will remain unchanged and will run normally. This comes after the BMRCL had previously carried out a trial run of the metro route between Yelachenahalli and Anjanapura commencing from the last week of August. This six-kilometer extension to the existing green line is part of the second phase of the Namma Metro project in Bengaluru which has been marred with delays, as the first phase of Namma Metro. The initial deadline was 2018, and before the pandemic, the BMRCL had intended to open the line for public use by August 2020.
