No metro service between MG Road and Indiranagar on December 22 and 23, but BMTC will provide free bus ride between the two station, these two days said BMTRC managing director Ajay Simha.
Metro service between MG Road and Indirangar stations have been terminated on December 22 and 23. However, officials stated that there will be free ride on Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) buses from MG Road to Indiranagar.
Due to rectifying work on pillar 155 near Trinity metro station is on, metro train will not travel between the above said stations for two days. Currently, the metro trains are moving slowly between these two stations.
There were rumours that a crack had developed on the metro pillar and it was dangerous to travel by train. But the authorities concerned at the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) have clarified that there is no crack nor there is extra gap between the pillars.
The speed of the metro trains was reduced due to inspection in this line. The two days that metro will not work between these two stations, BMTC will provide free bus service, said Ajay Simha, MD of BMRCL.
Ultra sonic tests are being conducted at these pillars. Action plan for rectifying if there is any problem will be ready in another five days, he added.
Earlier reports had said that there was honeycomb formation in the pillar number 155 and that was causing problem to the strength of the pillar. There were also reports of problem fixed by BMRCL engineers.
