Sushil Mantri, Chairman and Managing Director, Mantri Developers Pvt Ltd, said the direct connection with the Bangalore Metro will also help reduce vehicular traffic and provide hassle-free access to Metro commuters getting off at Sampige station directly into the mall.
Mayor B S Satyanarayana, who inaugurated the facility, requested Mantri Developers to adopt some lakes in the City.
The new bridge will allow commuters to enter from the station directly to the first floor of the mall. The metro station constructed by Mantri Developers consists of two basements, one ground and one upper floor. It was opened to the public on 1 March 2014. The station area covers around 80,000 sq feet.
