This is due to scheduled signalling work. Train services between Swami Vivekananda Road and Kengeri Metro stations will be accessible during this time.

Trains will only run between Baiyappanahalli and Vijayanagar Metro stations on August 14 from 5 am to 7 am in order to complete signalling and other related activities for extending Metro services from Kengeri to Challaghatta.
