BENGALURU: Out of the 28 MLAs and six MPs in Karnataka, about 16 have supported the Citizens for Bengaluru (CFB) in their campaign to #ChukuBukuBeku to press for the strengthening of commuter/suburban rail network in the city. Only five or six of them agreed to travel with the citizens in a local train to find the merits on ground.
Volunteers of CFB held a 'Call our MLA/MP' campaign on Wednesday and contacted all the MLAs and MPs to let them know that citizens want local trains immediately and asked for their support. CFB also asked them to join the #ChukuBukuBeku Yatra, experience it for themselves. They also suggested to use funds from the MLA/MP LADs kitty to develop stations for suburban

rail.
Naresh Narasimhan, architect and member of CFB said, "Demotorizing Bengaluru is the only option forward. Local train service will make a significant impact by taking lakhs of private vehicles off the streets. Mumbai has 50% less vehicles than Bengaluru due to the local train service". Prakash Belawadi, actor added that the government must prioritize this and show results within the next few months.
Srinivas Alavilli, member of CFB said, "It is a shame that so many successive governments in the state and center have squandered an opportunity that is low cost and readily available due to existing infrastructure of 180 plus kms of railway lines and nearly 20 stations in and around Bengaluru. More than 25 lakh people can benefit from a full-fledged commuter rail service, drastically reducing the traffic congestion and improving air quality. It is not acceptable that our government proposes to spend Rs 2000 crores on a single flyover of 6.7kms when they have done nothing in so many years to bring local train service into operation. We reached out to our MLAs and MPs already and in the coming days, we will reach out to citizens of Bengaluru that are suffering from traffic and pollution.
As many as 13 of the 19 legislators who we were able to call on Wednesday, strongly supported the need for local trains, some of them said they will raise it in the assembly while some were willing to join us on the #ChukuBukuBeku Yatra and some others wanted to speak later in detail. Overall it was a wonderful experience and makes us extremely happy about the strength of our democracy".

Yes. But line from Hosur after Kaggadasapura railway gate comes at a higher level and then it passes on a RoB over old Madras road, parallel to the Tin factory- ring road flyover. Now if it needs to be connected to CDSR then there needs to be a right side ramp to gradually descend and join the KJM-YNK line. It already has a left ramp that joins KJM-BNC line. The right ramp is not possible now with Tin factory junction being a mess and the already existing Tin factory - Hebbal flyover.

there is another possibility to connect this line to YNK without trains like Kongu, CBE - LTT going to SBC or YPR for loco reversal.
Just before LOGH station where this line joins the YNK-YPR line, a right curving RoB parallel to the existing RoB (YNK-YPR) is needed next to BEL compound. Then these trains can easily avoid the junctions. If not these trains; then suburban trains coming from Hosur can go towards Devanahalli (Airport). Just one RoB and some planning (like new stations near Marathhalli bridge similar to Hoodi) can make it worthwhile for people from E-City, Sarjapur road, Marathhalli, Hebbal to reach Airport (Dodjala-DJL). Instead of the mess called steel flyover developing few alternatives will help a lot.

A branch line from Heelalige to Electronic city -- 6 to 8 kms parallel to the highway on elevated levels is possible. Along with this, a 2 km link between Hebbal-YPR line will do wonders.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
