Vertical garden for metro pillars on Green Line

  • The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) is doing its bit to promote Bengaluru as the garden city.
  • Pillars on the line between Sampige Road and Peenya Industry, and from National College to R.V. Road metro station on the Green Line will have vertical gardens.
  • There are 549 pillars on the route, of which 96 will have vertical gardens.

Art institutions

  • The BMRCL is contemplating roping in art institutions to set up installation in the median below the metro stations.
  • It is implementing the project through licencees who will receive a contract to put an advertisement panel on the pillar. Bidders will have six months to grow the garden.
  • Vertical garden is one of the hottest trends on piers.
  • They can disguise the concrete structure and make it attractive. Though, vertical gardens seem like a simple solution, professional help is required to sustain it over a period of time.
  • Hence, the licencee is obliged to engage the services of professionals to develop and maintain the vertical garden
  • The licencee can also seek sponsors under corporate social responsibility funds.
  • The BMRCL had introduced vertical gardens on piers at the Rangoli Metro Art Centre on M.G. Road.
