Indian Railways will soon start sub-projects aimed at introducing semi-high speed trains on the Delhi-Howrah and Delhi-Mumbai routes, a senior ministry official said on Tuesday. “The two sub-projects under ‘Mission Raftaar’ are expected to be completed in three years with a total outlay of Rs 18,163 crore,” the official said. After the upgrade, trains on the routes will run at a speed of 160 km per hour.
The ‘Mission Raftaar’ project of the Indian Railways envisages to raise the average speed of both passenger and freight trains. The mission is being spearheaded by a cross disciplinary mobility directorate in the Railway Board. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said a Detailed Project Report of the routes is being prepared.

The Delhi-Howrah section will be upgraded at a cost of Rs 6,974 crore, and the Delhi-Mumbai section at an estimated Rs 11,189 crore. The official said the work involved replacing locomotives-hauled trains with Main line Electric Multiple Units and Diesel Electric Multiple Units trains.

I don't have that much specific knowledge regarding this route so I just said what I have read in the RDSO report, if that's wrong then all OK. MPS of section was never an issue, I was just asking that why the cost of upgrading tracks varies that much between NDLS-HWH & NDLS-BCT routes.

Re# 2173925-12            Tags   Past Edits
mountainous terrain. on flat plains it wouldn't cost much to upgrade, but here you have to literally move mountains to achieve 130 Kmph. for many trunk routes in India, the section passing through MP is the bottleneck, courtesy the plentiful mountains in that state. also, even on those tracks where 130 exists, banking is an issue. tighter curve can be done with more banking of line, but that causes discomfort to passengers. no banking leas to very high radius of curvature, so somewhere a compromise will be needed. long story short, the route out of mumbai is going to be a nightmare to upgrade to 160. you need to eliminate LC's, eliminate many banked sections of the track (there are bucket loads of them), literally move mountains in RTM-GDA stretch and upgarde the OHE to tolerate 160 Kmph (the reason for which talgo trials were done by WDP 4)

Recently I read the news about safety tests being conducted on the new Bangalore-Mangalore route till the 10th of Feb.
Haven't heard any news of the results since then.
Does any one have any updates on this and when can we expect passenger trains to run on this route.

Today (08:04)   Bengaluru-Hassan broad gauge line may open next month

Entry# 2176314   News Entry# 294636         Tags   Past Edits
MYSURU: After nearly 21 years, the Bengaluru-Hassan broad gauge line may be operational from mid-March 2017. The project for the 172-km stretch between Bengaluru and Hassan was sanctioned in 1996 when HD Deve Gowda was the Prime Minister.
In 1996, the project cost was Rs 295 crore but now due to delay for various reasons, including land allotment and sanction of money, it costs Rs 1,289.92 crore. Once operational, the travel distance from Bengaluru to Hassan will be reduced by 50km via Arsikere and about 87km via Mysuru. The distance between Bengaluru and Hassan is 259km via Mysuru and 213km via Arsikere.
new line will connect Bengaluru (starting point Chikkabanavar) with Hassan via Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur and Shravanabelagola. The track is almost parallel to National Highway 48 (Bengaluru and Mangaluru). The Hassan-Shravanabelagola line, a 44km stretch, was opened in 2006, but the project didn't proceed until 2010 due to shortage of funds and land. The project gained momentum in 2010 when the state government agreed to bear half the project cost and by then, railways had spent Rs 335 crore.It will also reduce the travel time between Bengaluru and Mangaluru. The 368-km route from Bengaluru will be 10.5 hour till Mangaluru and will help the existing route via Mysuru and Hassan which takes nearly 12 hours and Arsikere and Hassan take 11.15hours. The new line will also help devotees going to Shravanabelagola.
It was a long-pending demand of the Jain community.
The Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS) conducted statutory inspection of the section from Nelamangala to Shravanabelagola. The section from Bengaluru and Nelamangala on one end and Hassan and Shravanabelagola on the other has already been commissioned for passenger traffic. The stretch from Nelamangala to Shravanabelagola will be operational after CRS authorization.
Sanjiv Agarwal, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, South Western Railway, said, "For most projects, funding and land are the two bottlenecks. There was no proper assured funding for this project and there were some land issues which were later resolved. Now, we're awaiting authorization from the Commissioner of Railway Safety. We require more staff, at least 100 to start with."

Atleast now, SWR should nullify HMRDC agreement. Else whole investment in this line will be waste. Make Hassan a hub for intra state connectivity. Hope we get MAQ-SBC, MAQ-MAS, MAQ-TPTY, MAQ-PDY & MAQ-SA via new line. Apart from this, we expect some trains terminating at SBC/YPR to go upto Hassan (KCVL-SBC,EKM-SBC, MAS-SBC ICE, etc)
