Bengaluru: Three Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) engineers temporarily fixed the faults in the metro structure that developed due to what is known to be a honeycomb formation near Trinity station on Thursday. The metro services between Bengaluru's Indiranagar and MG Road were suspended for more than four hours on December 12 morning after a concrete girder gradually came off the beam near the Trinity station. The metro station at Majestic witnessed unprecedented rush by the time the metro engineers fixed the problem and restored regular services during the peak hour.
Similarly, the residents of Byappanahalli claimed that they witnessed another crack in a pillar near the metro track at Byappanahalli metro station. BMRCL’s managing director KN Srivastava spoke to a reporter and claimed that there is no crack in the pillar, but there was a bit of problem with the beam, and that would soon be rectified.
