Yesterday (09:21)   New Bengaluru-Hassan line commissioning next week; Prime Minister invited for inauguration

Hassan-Yeshwantpur Intercity Express is the first confirmed train to run after the formal inauguration, the date for which is yet to be announced
BANGALORE: Former Prime Minister and Hassan Lok Sabha member H.D. Deve Gowda will invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate the new Hassan-Bengaluru line. “The Railway Minister (Suresh Prabhu) desires that the line be opened by the Prime Minister and [has] requested me to extend a formal invitation. I’m going to Delhi tomorrow and try to speak the Prime Minister or intimate this to his office,” Mr. Deve Gowda told on Tuesday.
after coming to power, Mr.Modi had promised to complete the line on priority; it still took about three years. “I am not going to blame anyone for the inordinate delay of 22 years for the completion of the line,” said Mr. Deve Gowda, who had sanctioned the line when he was PM.
The 110-km Nelamangala-Shravanabelagola railway line, part of the new 166-km Bengaluru-Hassan line, is set to be commissioned by South Western Railway (SWR) on February 28. This follows authorisation given by A.K. Manoharan, Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Circle, who inspected the line and conducted speed trials between February 6 and 10. Ashok Gupta, chief administrative officer, Construction, SWR, told The Hindu that the commissioner on Monday issued authorisation to run passenger trains with a maximum speed of 80 kmph.
With this, the hope of the people of Hassan and coastal regions for the shortest rail route to Bengaluru has come true. The project had been announced by Deve Gowda way back in 1996, but the work progressed at a snail’s pace, partly owing to non-availability of land and mostly because of meagre fund allocation by the Railways.
Sharing the cost
In 2010, the then Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa decided to share the cost of ongoing as well as new Railway projects to sped up the work. More funds from the Railways came when D.V. Sadananda Gowda was Railway Minister.
SWR’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya said the commissioning would be done with a trial run of a passenger train on the section on February 28. The formal inauguration would be done depending upon the dates acceptable for the dignitaries.
New train
As of now, SWR has planned an intercity express between Hassan and Yeshwantpur, leaving Hassan at around 6 a.m. and reaching Yeshwantpur at 9.30 a.m. In the return direction, the train would leave Yeshwantpur at around 6 p.m. and reach Hassan at 9.30 p.m. It is tentatively scheduled to halt at Chikkabanavar, Kunigal, Yediyur, Balagangadhar Nagar, Shravanabelagola and Channarayapatna.
Meanwhile, the zone has sought the Railway Board’s permission to re-route the yet-to-be-introduced Train No. 16575/576 Bengaluru-Mangaluru Kudla Express via the new route. Mr. Sadananda Gowda had announced this train in 2014 to run via Mysuru.
Ms. Vijaya also said three goods trains between Mangaluru and Bengaluru would be diverted via the new section after February 28.
Manpower allocation
Since it is a large section, SWR requires at least 120 workers, including 60 tracks-men and about 35 stations masters. The zone is in the process of identifying personnel for posting and the process could take about a fortnight, Ms. Vijaya said.

They may take up few years agree, but not 20 years as that of HAS-YPR new line. Required land for this line was held by liquor baron Vijay Malya for decade, because of his Kunigal Stud farm. Once he went out of India, SWR moved in fast pace acquired pending land and completed it. But where as for CMGR-SKLR line, there are no hurdles and now Railways are also serious and completing many projects at good pace, Hope it would complete soon, as DRU-CMGR line already commissioned.

Yesterday (09:52)   Work to introduce semi-high speed trains on two routes to begin soon

Entry# 2173925   News Entry# 294511         Tags   Past Edits
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.

Gupta sir is right, but i believe GDA-RTM is 110 not 120.
the statement in the report, amazingly, isn't completely right. if you don't believe me you can check the TT's of train plying in NDLS-BRC section; average speeds drop quite a lot in the GDA-RTM section, and most trains have lower speed in the entire BRC-RTM section for this reason.
The track though is maintained to the standard required for 130 fit trains (60 Kg rails, proper banking of track etc)

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)

रेल हादसों में आइएसआइ का हाथ: महाप्रबंधक
जागरण संवाददाता, कासगंज: पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के महाप्रबंधक राजीव मिश्रा ने कहा है कि हाल में हुए बड़े रेल हादसों में जांच एजेंसियों के मुताबिक, पाकिस्तानी खुफिया एजेंसी आइएसआइ का हाथ है। रेल दुर्घटनाओं को रोकने के लिए रेलवे ने सतर्कता बढ़ाई है। कानपुर-कासगंज-मथुरा रेलमार्ग शीघ्र विद्युतीकृत हो जाएगा।
बुधवार को यहां जंक्शन स्टेशन पर पत्रकारों से वार्ता करते हुए जीएम राजीव मिश्रा ने कहा कि इज्जतनगर मंडल में भी पिछले दिनों रेल पटरी कटी मिली थी। यह गंभीर विषय था। यूपी के डीजीपी से उन्होंने व्यक्तिगत
बात की है और रेल लाइन की सुरक्षा भी बढ़ाई गई है। जीएम ने कहा कि मथुरा से कासगंज और अनवरगंज कानपुर तक रेल लाइन का विद्युतीकरण करने के लिए सभी तैयारियां कर ली गईं हैं। शीघ्र ही यह काम शुरू हो जाएगा और 2017 में ही पूरा हो जाएगा। एक सवाल के जवाब में उन्होंने कहा कि कासगंज-बरेली के बीच रेल लाइन को इलेक्ट्रिीफाई करने की मंजूरी इसी बजट में मिली है। आगामी वर्ष में इस लाइन पर भी विद्युतीकरण का काम शुरू हो जाएगा।
एक अन्य प्रश्न के उत्तर में उन्होंने कहा कि रामगंगा से बरेली सिटी के बीच पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे का ट्रैक तैयार है। सीआरएस का निरीक्षण भी हो गया है, लेकिन आचार संहिता के कारण चुनाव आयोग से अनुमति मांगी गई है। जैसे ही अनुमति मिलेगी, इस ट्रैक पर गाड़ियां दौड़ने लगेंगी। साथ ही ट्रेनों की संख्या बढ़ाई जाएगी। उन्होंने कहा कि कर्मचारियों को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए सरकार की पहल पर नगद पुरस्कार दिया जा रहा है। जीएम ने कहा कि कासगंज जंक्शन को महत्वपूर्ण स्टेशन बनाया जाएगा।
