After Metro now its Mono Rail

After Metro now its Mono Rail....Grat news

here u go

Karnataka will invite global tenders for the proposed Mono Rail project in Bangalore. The state Cabinet met here last week and decided to call for tenders.

The project has been proposed to decongest vehicular traffic within the city. The Mono Rail will act as feeder service for the Metro Rail project, which is being implemented in Bangalore.

The state government has proposed to take up both projects for the city as Metro Rail alone cannot address the growing public transportation needs.

The Asian Infrastructure Consortium, a private company, is in the process of preparing the detailed project report (DPR) for Mono Rail. Initially, the Mono Rail will run on a trial basis (18 km connecting commercial hub of the city — Majestic — to Kanakapura Road on Bangalore’s southern tip).

“The Asian Infrastructure Consortium has sought 60 days to prepare the DPR. Once the DPR is submitted, the government will invite tenders from global infrastructure companies,” Karnataka’s primary & secondary education minister Basavaraja Horatti said.
