The Bengaluru Railway Division is embarking on a transformative project aimed at mitigating congestion in key railway stations across the city.


Plans are underway to establish a substantial terminal in Devanahalli, equipped with maintenance facilities, at an estimated cost of Rs 2,500 crore. As part of the Viksit Bharat initiative, the proposed terminal will sprawl across 200 acres and feature a minimum of 10 platforms for train operations, to ease congestion at saturated stations like KSR Bengaluru, Yeshwanthpur, and Bengaluru Cantonment.


The strategic location, situated 4 to 5 kilometres away from the existing Devanahalli Halt station, has been identified for the project. However, the realization of this ambitious endeavor hinges on approvals from the Railway Board and subsequently, the Union Cabinet, due to its substantial financial implications.


The terminal's integration into the broader 287-km circular railway project for Bengaluru is part of the grand vision, with feasibility studies for both projects currently underway. Despite this, construction plans for the terminal will proceed independently, with efforts underway to establish bypass rail routes linking the terminal to neighboring railway stations.


The circular railway project aims to fortify local train services, alleviate congestion, and synergize with the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project (BSRP) and Namma Metro, ultimately providing a seamless transportation solution for Bengaluru and its satellite towns.
