Previously, passengers travelling on the Whitefield to Byappanahalli route had to disembark at KR Puram and find alternative transportation options, causing inconvenience. The inauguration of the KR Pura Metro line is set to bring much-needed relief to commuters.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the White Field Road from KR Puram on March 25th, marking a significant development. However, the Missing Link Metro route, which connects Whitefield to Byappanahalli, was set to be officially launched during the third week of August. Now, preparations are underway to open this crucial new route to the public on Gandhi Jayanti.
