‘Set up commuter rail corridor'

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: G.S. Basavaraj, Tumkur MP, has demanded a commuter rail corridor around Bangalore connecting Tumkur and Ramanagaram.

In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Mr. Basavaraj urged him to approve the State Government's proposal to form a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to undertake this project in association with the Railway Ministry. Mr. Basavaraj said thousands of people from satellite cities and towns travel to Bangalore to earn their livelihood, so a mass rapid transit system would certainly help them.

He said the State Government had proposed a commuter rail service around Bangalore and linking it with the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation and metro services.
