Track doubling: Tipu’s armoury relocation by September 30 R. KRISHNA KUMAR
Making way:A specialised equipment for relocating the nearly 40 x 35 ft structure from the base will be in place by August 15.— PHOTO: M.A. SRIRAM The translocation of the 18th century Tipu’s armoury at Srirangapatna railway station, which has delayed the completion of the track doubling work between Mysuru and Bengaluru, will be over by September 30.
The specialised equipment for relocating the nearly 40 x 35 ft structure from the base will be in place by August 15, and

the actual transportation will take not more than 30 days. “In all probability, the work will be practically over by September 30,” said a senior official in the South Western Railway.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, he said that once the monument is relocated, the new bridges across the Cauvery — across Cauvery North and Cauvery South — will also be taken up, and the 1.2-km stretch of the double track will be laid to complete the project by September 30.
The work was originally scheduled for completion by March 31, but the deadline was extended by six months. Officials are positive that there will be no more extensions as the work on the site to physically relocate the monument was on. The monument will be moved about 100 m from its original spot, and will have the same orientation as it is now. The civil works to remove the earth around the monument right down to the foundation of the armoury building is on, while the RCC foundation at the new site is also nearing completion, said the official.
The process of translocation proved to be difficult than originally thought as it is made of brick and lime mortar. The Railways forbid slicing or cutting the structure into blocks or reassembling it. Given the complexity of the operations, there were no response to the tender floated for the works initially, but finally, a U.S.-based company, Wolfe Private Ltd., with expertise in such work, was awarded the contract.
The relocation became inevitable for laying the second track as the monument is along the new alignment. Due to complexities involved in relocation and the consequent delay, only a 1.2-km stretch at Srirangapatna remains to be doubled out of the 139-km stretch between Mysuru and Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, the steel girder of the bridge across Cauvery North is in place and the track is being laid and the work is in progress on the bridge across Cauvery South. Once the monument is relocated, the double line track will link the two sections, marking the completion of the entire project.

Talgo tilting train to reduce commuting time between Bengaluru, Mysuru Travel time between Bengaluru and Mysuru could be reduced to 90 minutes in the near future if trials with a high speed, tilting train manufactured by Spanish manufacturer Talgo conducted between Delhi and Mumbai in the next few days are successful.
Union Minister Suresh Prabhu on Saturday said that larger orders for the trains will be placed based upon the success of the trial run, which will likely begin from August 1. The train recently clocked 180 kmph this week between Mathura and Palwal during a trial run. “This technology will be cheaper as it can run on existing tracks. Since there are a lot of curves on the Bengaluru-Mysuru line, it

will be better. We will start in a short time,” Mr. Prabhu said.
The state government had proposed the use of these trains on the route to reduce the travel time without having to create new infrastructure. Track doubling and electrification work on the line is almost completed. A major hurdle of shifting Tipu Sultan’s armoury taken up by US based company Wolfe Private Limited will also be completed soon. “In all probability, the project will be completed by year-end and tilting train coaches will be an added attraction on the track,” said R.V. Deshpande, Major Industries Minister, who also has the infrastructure portfolio.
Tilting train coaches are product of Talgo-the Spanish manufacturer of intercity, standard, and high speed trains. These coaches are light in weight and designed in a way that it can run on curves without decelerating. The Indian Railway recently conducted the first trial run in the stretch between Bareilly and Moradabad, as part of strategy to increase the speed of the trains, the minister explained.
Hurdles cleared for Hubballi-Ankola line
The disposing of cases related to the much delayed Hubbali-Ankola line by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has come as a relief to the proponents of the line. The NGT asked the project proponents (Railways) to send a proposal to the State Government for further examination. Mr. Deshpande said that the State Government had requested the South-Western Railway to re-examine the extent of forest land required and to reduce it further in light of technological advancements.
As a result, Railways reduced the requirement of forest area from 667 hectares to 602 hectares. Further, the length of the tunnels and viaducts has been increased to protect the forest and wildlife. “Government will be submitting a fresh proposal to the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change,” Mr. Deshpande said.

After successful trial of Talgo train at 180kmph, it is expected that the Talgo rake shall be cleared for a booked speed of up to 160kmph on IRly tracks. It is not a big deal, as the indigenous (& much cheaper) LHB coaches are already operating at booked speed of 160kmph. USP of Talgo trains is its tilting mechanism which permit higher speeds on curve as compared to conventional trains. This train shall be best suited for Mumbai-Pune, Mumbai-NK-MMR, SBC-Mysore, Delhi-UMB-CDG-KLK, etc. routes where journey time shall be appreciably reduced.
Talgo is designed for, and is supposed to run at 250 kmph, operating it at 160 kmph is actually under-utilisation of its capacity. Either upgrade the track to operate the train
...
more...
at a booked speed of at least 200 kmph+, or develop/ adopt similar technology for LHB coach if possible!
One big hurdle in operating Talgo trains in large number is the fact that, its fare is likely to be at least equal to or more than the Gatiman Express fares. Logically Talgo train fare should be higher than the LHB Gatiman due to much higher cost. There has to be sufficient traffic for premium ac class to introduce Talgo trains.It such a train is introduced for a distance of 150-250 km with journey time of 1.5 to 2.5 hrs, then it should do atleast 3/2 round trips sp as to justify the high cost of train loco+coaches.

Jul 22 2016 (10:02AM)   What ails the Airport Metro link?

What ails the Airport Metro link? Rasheed Kappan July 17, 2016, DHNS
Namma Metro connectivity to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) has been in the pipeline for several years now. But clarity eludes this critical link even nine years after the commercial launch of the airport. There are now indications that the second phase of the Metro project will have an extenstion to the airport, although the exact alignment is yet to be finalised.
Engineering consultancy firm, RITES has already prepared a feasibility report on the link line, recommeding five alignments. The most
...
more...
feasibile option could be an extension of the Gottigere to Nagawara line under Phase-II. But this 21.25-km line has a 13.79-km underground stretch which could prove tricky in speedy completion of the project.
Faced with the hard rock problems on the Chickpet-Majestic and Majestic-Mantri underground stretches, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) is wary about tunnelling issues. Only when the Gottigere-Nagawara line is fully complete can the Airport extension make sense.
Experts are convinced that the Airport link from the Nagawara side will take years. However, BMRCL officials feel they can accelerate the work if the tunnelling job is entrusted to multiple contractors. Simply put, this would mean several Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) working in tandem at different underground station points.
What is a better, quicker alternative? Is a Metro line along Airport Road a viable option? The now-on, now-off High-Speed Rail Link (HSRL) was designed to take this path. But, as urban rail analyst, Sanjeev Dyamannavar points out, there are big issues with this route.
An elevated Metro line would mean cutting short the runway and eventual closure of the Government Flying Training School at Jakkur. This problem becomes even more pronounced on Airport Road along the Yelahanka Air Force Station. “The Air Force will definitely not allow that elevation so close to its important base. The only option will be to go underground for a minimum of 4-5 km,” explains Dyamannavar. Inevitably, going below the ground will escalate the project cost.
Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) had ruled out a second entry to the airport from the Southern side, citing construction of its second runway along that direction. This contention could apply to a Metro link extended from Nagawara.
But aviation experts have an easy solution to this: Take the Metro line under the runway and extend it all the way to the terminal. This model has been perfected in airports across the world.

Why can't our people think of simpler alternatives? Why can't we have a railway station between Dodjala and Devanahalli? Anyway, rly line is on the border of BIAL area? From there, BMTC can run feeder service to airport (3-4 kms), just like in Delhi.
Instead of wasting crores of rupees for digging up the city and creating problems, this should be thought of.

ANANTAPUR: The selfie craze took another life on Wednesday. An engineering student was hit by a train as he failed to move out in time after taking a selfie on the tracks in Kurnool district.
The incident took place at a bridge near Neravada in Panyam mandal. Idrus Bhasha, 20, of W. Govinda Dinne in Dornipadu mandal in Kurnool district, was the only son of Mr Mulla Shabir Bhasha and Ms Shakila Banu, He was studying second-year engineering at RGM College near Panyam.
On Wednesday Idrus and his friend Harish were out on a morning walk by the tracks near a bridge at Neravada when they noticed a train approaching from Nandyal.
The two decided to take selfies with the train in the background and stood on either side of the tracks. While Harish managed to move away seconds before the train reached them, Idrus could not. He suffered grievous injuries and died on the spot.
Harish alerted the college management and later Idrus’ parents about the tragic incident. Nandyal assistant station manager N. Suresh Reddy lodged a complaint with the railway police. Railways sub-inspector K. Narayana Yadav registered a case.
