The Bengaluru Metro rail project is the city's ultimate landmark infrastructure
project. The project will stretch across 42.3 kms. To achieve efficiency in implementation,
the project has been divided into four elevated stretches, each known as a Reach.
UltraTech has contributed immensely to the venture. The company has supplied 0.79
lac MT of Cement in the first reach of the project, thereby achieving a 100% share
of business in the reach. Two underground sections connecting Reach-1 and Reach-2
in the east-west corridor and Reach-3 and Reach-4 in the north-south corridor are
also being constructed.
The first reach connects M.G. Road to Byappanahalli terminal, covering a distance
of 7.4 kms. The inaugural run of Reach-1 was conducted on 20th October 2011. The
first phase will be ready by September, 2015. Once completed, the project will ease
Bengaluru's commuting woes. It will stand testament to UltraTech's great quality
and service. And it will also add to UltraTech's goal of nation building.
