The Bengaluru–Hassan new railway line, construction of which was completed in January, would be opened for passenger traffic likely on March 26.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda are expected to inaugurate the new line by flagging off Yeshwantpur–Hassan Inter-City Express from Yeshwantpur station.
South Western Railway’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya said the inauguration date has been tentatively fixed.
166-km new line was sanctioned by Mr. Gowda when he was the Prime Minister in 1996–97. The project took over two decades for completion.
Commissioner of Railway Safety (Southern Circle) A.K. Manoharan, who inspected the new line between Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola (110 km) between February 6 and 10 issued authorisation to SWR on February 20 to run passenger trains on the sector.

Reasons given by PGT division are absolute rubbish. If they cant find a slot for Kudla then they dont deserve to keep hold of MAQ and can hand it over to SWR. Demand between MAQ and SBC is very high that Karwar-SBC runs packed from MAQ- one can witness the huge rush for UR seats at MAQ Platform. Some might say that demand for another train is not there but if thats the case why there are 100s of buses between MAQ and SBC? If more trains are introduced, then a lot of bus pax are going to migrate to train travel.

There are 4 daily trains from MAQ to MAS. 5 daily trains from MAQ to TVC. Why not shift one Chennai train and one TVC train to MAJN. TVC and MAS trains have RSA arrangements.SR Shift one set to MAJN. In that slots, one Karnataka train can get in.

Island express belong to SWR. It is running 200 km in SWR & balance 715 kms in SR. So, SWR can tell SR to run this train and divert SBC cape exp via MAQ, SRR, ERN. Distance will increase by 130 kms but SR canl not raise any objections as the train will run 700 km in SR. Also, no parking problem at MAQ. SWR will be happy to do so, as they are serving more in neighbouring zone. MAQ SBC travellers get a train. New connectivity.
Win win win for all - SWR, SR, public.!!!

यहां बनेंगे स्टेशन1’सहजनवां, पिपरौली, खजनी, उनवल, बांसगांव, उरुवा, गोला बाजार, बड़हलगंज और दोहरीघाट।
जागरण संवाददाता, गोरखपुर : पूवरेत्तर रेलवे के महाप्रबंधक राजीव मिश्र ने शुक्रवार को लखनऊ में मुख्यमंत्री आदित्यनाथ योगी से कर शुभकामनाएं दीं। इस दौरान दोनों के बीच सहजनवां-दोहरीघाट नई रेल लाइन, गोरखपुर स्थित नंदानगर व सूरजकुंड रेलवे क्रासिंग पर बनने वाले अंडर पास (सब-वे), लखनऊ सिटी व गोमतीनगर आदि स्टेशनों के विस्तार सहित यात्री सुविधाओं पर चर्चा हुई। महाप्रबंधक ने मुख्यमंत्री को नई रेल लाइन निर्माण की प्रक्रिया जल्द शुरू कराने का आश्वासन दिया। साथ ही भूमि अधिग्रहण में
प्रदेश सरकार से सहयोग भी मांगा। मुख्यमंत्री ने भी सहयोग का भरोसा दिलाया। सांसद के रूप में वह लगातार रेलवे के विकास और यात्री सुविधाओं के लिए संघर्ष करते रहे हैं। पूवरेत्तर रेलवे में इसका असर भी दिखने लगा है। 1सहजनवां और दोहरीघाट बनेगा जंक्शन : सहजनवां से दोहरीघाट तक (लगभग 70 किमी) रेल लाइन बिछाने के लिए फाइनल लोकेशन सर्वे पूरा हो चुका है। विस्तृत परियोजना रिपोर्ट (डीपीआर) रेलवे बोर्ड को भेज दी गई है। बोर्ड की हरी झंडी मिलते ही निर्माण की प्रक्रिया शुरू हो जाएगी। सूत्रों का कहना है कि बोर्ड ने प्रस्तावित स्टेशनों को कम करने की सलाह दी थी, लेकिन पूवरेत्तर रेलवे प्रशासन ने यात्री सुविधाओं का हवाला देते हुए सात क्रासिंग स्टेशन का प्रस्ताव तैयार किया है। सहजनवां और दोहरीघाट स्टेशन को जंक्शन बनाया जाएगा। 1नई रेल लाइन के लिए 743.55 करोड़ रुपये स्वीकृत : रेल मंत्रलय ने सहजनवां से दोहरीघाट तक नई रेल लाइन बिछाने के लिए 743.55 करोड़ रुपये स्वीकृत किया है। जानकारों का कहना है कि एक किमी रेल लाइन बिछाने में रेलवे को लगभग 20 करोड़ रुपये खर्च करने पड़ते हैं। ऐसे में सहजनवां से दोहरीघाट के बीच रेल लाइन बिछाने में 1400 करोड़ रुपये खर्च करने पड़ेंगे। हालांकि, इस क्षेत्र का सत्तर के दशक से चार बार सर्वे हुआ है, लेकिन अभी तक बात नहीं बन पाई। रेलवे के महाप्रबंधक और प्रदेश के मुख्यमंत्री की के बाद एक बार फिर लोगों की उम्मीदें बढ़ गई हैं।’ जीएम ने दिया रेल लाइन निर्माण की प्रक्रिया शुरू करने का आश्वासन, मांगा सहयोग 1’ के दौरान नई रेल लाइन, अंडर पास और यात्री सुविधाओं पर हुई चर्चा

Yesterday (20:10)   Bengaluru-Hassan direct train to be flagged off on Monday

The service, which will be flagged off by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, will take three hours to cover the distance.
Bengaluru: Come Monday and the city will have its first direct train service to Hassan, nearly two decades after it was first proposed. The service, which will be flagged off by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, will take three hours to cover the distance. But for the present it will only be a day service and there are no plans to run the highly popular Bengaluru-Mangaluru- Karwar night train on this newly completed track either, according to South West Railway sources.
decision on the Karwar Express has left many disappointed. Regular passengers on the train point  that it runs via Mysuru city presently and takes 12 hours to cover the distance to Mangaluru.  " It stops in Mysuru for an hour and runs very slow in the Shiradi ghat section. But if the train is diverted on the Bengaluru-Hassan direct line, it could save three to four hours. However, despite repeated letters to the SWR , it is  not ready to fulfill this demand," complained Mr. Gurunath Shenoy, a regular passenger on the route, arguing that if  the travel time between Mangaluru and Bengaluru was cut,  it would also help passengers from Udupi, Kundapur and Bhatkal.
He believes the luxury bus lobby is putting a spoke in the wheels as it could lose business if there was a more comfortable train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.   
"Presently around 400 luxury private buses  operate between the two cities every day and so this lobby is stopping the SWR from using the new track for the Karwar Express," he charged.

Shifting the route of the overnight SMC-MAQ/Karwar train from via MYS to via Shravanbelgola is not going to save 3-4 hours as reported. It is because the main speed breaker to the train is the Hasan-Manglore line. It may save about 2 hours as clearly indicated below.
* part-1 * Hasan-Manglore -189 kms- 6:45 hrs, 28kmph avg speed-MAIN PROBLEM REMAINS UNSILVED
part-2A * SBC-MYS-Hasan- 259 kms- 4:50 hrs, 54kmph
*part-2B * SBC-ASK-Hasan- 207 kms- 3:53 hrs, 53kmph
*part-2C *SBC-Hasan new- 166kms- 2:50 hrs- 58kmph (expected avg speed on new line)
SBC-MYS- MAQ- 447kms- 11:45hrs- 38kmph
SBC-ASK- MAQ- 390kms- 10:40hrs- 37kmph
SBC-Newline-MAQ-355kms-9:35hrs- 37kmph
Solution to increasing speed and reducing journey time lies in solving the problem of Hasan-Manglore section. Need of the hour is to improve the track layout to permit higher speeds on the section. The doubling, whenever taken have to adopt diversions from existing alignment so as to have shorter, straighter, higher permissible route which could halve the journey time from current 6:45 hrs to 3:30-4:00 hrs.
The root cause of the problem lies in the poor quality of gauge conversion which was done at break neck speed to fulfill the political agenda (of the then RM) to complete GC of all MG Karnataka within 5 years. Hence proper straightening of the old MG route and other necessary modifications to Permanent way to fit BG standards was not done which could have delayed the project by many years, and the job was hurriedly completed. Result is before as that the converted route is not serving the desired purpose. Today all the GCs are being done as per tecnical requirements, a a result the section capacity of routes have got enhanced and trains are giving good avg speeds as well.

It's really sad that even after knowing the popularity of the sbc-maq night train. The SWR have not bothered to either introduce a new train or atleast run the existing train on this new route. It clearly shows the Nexus between SWR and the bus lobby. I have written emails to the minister and raised multiple greivance in the railway portal but haven't received any proper response.

Yes u are right alternative alignment of HAS MAJN section was there but the old MG route was hurriedly made BG. The alignment of this route was proposed from Kabakaputtur to Sakhleshpur without touching SBHR. But SBHR temple is a sacred place, hence plan was dropped. Bus lobby played important role in forcing SWR to follow MG alignment for BG route while another alignment survey from SBHR to MYS directly bye passing HAS didn't see the daylight on it. Alternative MAJN HAS route byepassing Shiradi Ghats is a must
