    Namma Metro train test run ran yesterday on Sunday Evening from M.G Road to Byappanahalli

    It took about two and half hours to reach the destination, as the test run was done under great care, with engineers and workers all keeping an eye on the train and its movement. There were some minor glitches which took the train so long to travel.

    However, the return journey was in less than 20 minutes. Each Bangalorean was present at this historic moment either on roads, rooftops or place where they could get this glimpse.

    Metro is the talk of the town these days. Bangalore is these days known for its traffic. With less kilometer travels, it is taking people too much of time to reach the desired places. These will really make tuff for people to make any travel. People are eagerly waiting for Metro trains so that it will reduce the traffic.

    Hope Metro comes soon to avoid Bangalore traffic.

    Best Regards,
