After the recent security scare of the honeycomb near Trinity Metro Station, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is all set to conduct an extensive safety audit of metro Phase I, reports Bangalore Mirror.
Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara visited the spot on Monday and instructed a safety audit for the entire 42 kms of Phase I, that spans from Baiyappanahlli to Mysore Road and from Nagasandra to Yelachenahalli. Mr Pramaeshwara reiterated that though the Metro officials were confident that such problems won’t recur, the BMRCL wanted to be on the safer side and not take any chances.
An external agency would be selected to conduct the safety audit, and the report will be submitted within three weeks.
