BMRC has been silent for months, even as citizens questioned the rationale behind the change of Cantonment metro station location. The silence continues and many questions remain, and a residents’ group has now got involved.
Monorail that was proposed in comprehensive traffic plan for Bengaluru never got realised. Government is hoping Metro will decongest the city, but is it possible with the existing rate of addition of vehicles?
