Chug along to new Bangalore Airport if govt says yes

Bangalore: Trains to the airport. That's how the Bangalore International Airport in Devanahalli could make travel easier for its users from the city once it's operational from April 2, 2008.
A proposal for a dedicated rail link for the around 30-km stretch to the city will be placed before the cabinet by month-end, Vinay Kumar, principal secretary (infrastructure), said on Friday.
If approved, the link that will pass through interchanges already planned, can be made operational by 2008, the official added. The redesigned apron, taxiway and terminal areas will be operational from April 2, 2008, to handle up to 11 million passengers, BIAL CEO Albert Brunner said.
