A devoted rail system connecting the city and international airport, which is being built, is on the cards, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) Managing Director V Madhu said on Saturday.

Making a formal presentation on ‘Bangalore Metro Rail: A boon to the City’s woes’, organised by the Returned Non Resident Indian Association, he hoped that the Rs 550-crore project would soon get the green signal. He stated the 26-km stretch posed a few hurdles as there were several bends.

He said that a survey was being conducted to find out other busy corridors. “A report will be released in the month of November in this regard,” he added.

Stating that around 1,500 big trees would be cut or pruned in the City, Madhu said that the BMRC had paid the Forest Department to plant ten trees for every tree cut.
