passenger convenience!Soon Bengaluru people can reach Airport by taking a train!

Work on railway halt station at "Kempe Gowda International Airport" on Yelahanka-Bangarpet line is progressing and will be completed by august 2020.

Services will be managed by the Indian Railways' (IR) South Western Railway zone. The halt station will be close to the airport building. Once operational, it will allow Bengaluru easy connectivity by train, the quoted report said.

Airport operator Bengaluru International Airport (BIAL) will likely begin 15-minute interval shuttle services to and from the train halt to the airport once the project is operational, it added.

With the development of new train lines in the city, Bengaluru joins the list of metros such as Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi, which have their own suburban rail networks. The southern city will get a 148 km long suburban rail line with 55-odd stations, funded 20 percent by central government equity and 60 percent from external assistance.

Between night 2300 till 1300 hours next day, hardly any traffic from SBC/ YPR/ KJM towards Yelahanka Devanahalli. Similarly, no much traffic towards SBC/YPR/ KJM in the afternoon hours.
With proper planning, trains can run to airport from all 3 station - SBC YPR KJM. Will help in avoiding heavy traffic on roads also.
