Trains from Hubballi to Varanasi, Mysuru to be introduced
Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha has promised to consider favourably a demand for introducing a train between Hubballi and Mangaluru to provide connectivity between the coastal and interior regions of Karnataka.
Replying to a demand by Pralhad Joshi, MP, at a ceremony to release a stamp brought out by the India Post to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of the saint Hanagal Kumaraswamy here on Friday, Mr. Manoj Sinha said that he would try his best to consider this demand and see
that a train was run between these two cities of the State.
Saying that this demand had been made by people of this region as well as that of the coastal belt, Mr. Joshi said that Hubballi was already connected with Mysuru and Bengaluru by train and the department of Railways has also fulfilled the demand for introducing new trains to Varanasi and Mysuru.
He has also urged the Minister to consider another demand for introducing the train between Hubballi and Mangaluru.
Later, Mr. Joshi told The Hindu that he had briefed the Minister regarding the need for running a train between Hubballi and Mangaluru via Arsikere junction.
Earlier, a train was running between Mangaluru and Miraj via Hubballi and it was stopped during the gauge conversion works. The Minister has been urged to reintroduce this train.
Later, this train could be diverted via Ankola once the works of laying a railway track between Hubballi and Ankola was completed.
Mr. Joshi also announced on this occasion that the Ministry of Railways has fulfilled the demand for providing a train between Hubballi and Varanasi (Kashi) and a day train between Hubballi and Mysuru. Both of these trains would be flagged off at a function to be held here on May 23, he said.
The trains from Hubballi to Varanasi and Mysuru will be flagged off at a function on May 23

But that has worst timings from YPR to UBL, BGM. I think even people who want to go to BGM dont catch it as it starts very early & it takes too much time.
There used to be a Suvidha Spl which used to depart YPR at 20:45, UBL-5:00, BGM-7:45, that should be regularised.

Also the only reliable train on Sundays from BGM, UBL to SBC is RC, KSK sometimes gets delayed. & Fridays from SBC to UBL/BGM the only train present is RC in the night, getting ticket in Vasco exp is too difficult and it doesn't go till BGM.
SWR has to run a daily SF with timings similar to:
Return: BGM- 19:00
But return will clash its timings with KSK, RC.

Yes at-least a weekly SF, Friday's from Bengaluru and Sunday's from Belagavi.
Return if it is on Sunday, swr can give slot of Vsg-Ypr from Londa, 22:30 from Bgm

Return TT is excellent DD dep 00:10, Bjp 6:45, Gdg 11:30 and Ubl 13:00, I suggest LTT-UBL via Solapur and SNSI-MYS via Solapur should also follow similar TT. These trains have a lot of slack time between Pune/Daund and Solapur.

May 17 2017 (17:11)   Diversion of Yeshwantpur-Karwar express hardly cuts travel time

rdb*^   129373 news posts
Entry# 2280657   News Entry# 302690         Tags   Past Edits
SWR’s move reduces journey time by just 10 minutes
The South Western Railway’s decision to divert Train No. 16515 Yeshwantpur-Karwar tri-weekly express via Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola instead of Tumakuru and Arsikere reduces journey time by just 10 minutes. At the same time, its decision to revise the departure timing of Train No. 16575 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express from 7.50 a.m. to 7.10 a.m. would extend journey time by 40 minutes.
The SWR on Saturday announced the diversion of Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express via the shortest route with effect from June 2 from Yeshwantpur and
June 3 from Karwar. Instead of the 7 a.m. departure, the train departs from Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing time of 5.40 p.m. It takes 1.48 hours to traverse 19 km between Bantwal and Mangaluru Junction.
The departure timing of Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express has been revised to match the timing of Train No. 16515, where Gomateshwara Express is made to leave Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing arrival time of 5.30 p.m. (10.20 hours).
However, the diversion speeds up the return journey of Train No. 16516 Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express. The train leaves Mangaluru Junction at 11.30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays instead of 11 a.m., to reach Yeshwantpur at 8.30 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.
Similarly, there is no change in the departure and arrival timing of Train No. 16576 from Mangaluru Junction and Yeshwantpur (11.30 a.m. and 8.30 p.m.) respectively. There is no change in days of service and timing of Tain No. 16515/165116 between Mangaluru Junction and Karwar.
Prolonged wait
Sources in SWR pointed out that the journey time of Karwar-Yeshwantpur Express has been reduced by 1.30 hours with the diversion. The trains, both Yeshwantpur-Karwar Express and Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Express, have to wait for a long time to enter Mangaluru Junction Station, which comes under southern railways thereby, lengthening the journey hours. If the southern railways agrees to receive the trains early, the journey hours would be reduced, sources added.
Vinay Kumar, member of SWR’s Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee, regretted that the diversion did not reduce journey hours and lamented that the zone is unresponsive to commuters’ needs.

NEED MORE TRAINS AT BAY~   61 news posts

Bengaluru: The government finalizing the Metro link to Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) from Nagawara via Jakkur and Yelahanka may have brought cheer, but the biggest challenge for Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) will be to construct the underground stations on the Gottigere-MG Road-Nagawara line.
The link is an extension of the Gottigere-Nagawara line, which is a part of Namma Metro Phase 2. It is a 21.25km corridor, of which only 7.5km is over the ground and 13.7km is underground. Officials said they will require more than five tunnel boring machines (TBMs) for the 13-km route.
line will have 12 underground stations — Swagath Cross on Bannerghatta Road, Dairy Circle, Mico Factory, Langford Town, MG Road, Shivajinagar, Cantonment Railway Station, Pottery Town, Tannery Road, Venkateshpura, Arabic College and Nagawara. These areas of central and east Bengaluru are already crowded and BMRC needs to block parts of the roads to build the underground stations.
"We need nearly an acre of land on the ground for each of the 12 underground stations. The land acquisition for this has not begun. We will also need to block some parts of these roads for construction and safety reasons," officials said.
Land for six elevated stations is also yet to be acquired. BMRC has paid Rs 600 crore to the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB), which has to be handed over to land losers as compensation. KIADB will now begin the acquisition process.
Pradeep Singh Kharola, BMRC MD, said: "The target is to complete the civil construction of the entire 21-km line in 36 months, and that is why we will need to deploy more TBMs to complete tunnelling, which is the tough part."
BMRC will make use of the five existing TBMs that were deployed for Metro's first phase. This means each TBM will tunnel nearly a 1-km stretch, making it a faster process.
However, experts say the geotechnical conditions will be as tough as they were in Chickpet. TG Sitaram, IISc professor, told TOI, "The old areas of Bengaluru from east to north are like a plateau. The soil is a combination of soft soil and hard rocks, like in Chickpet. It will be a difficult and time-consuming process. The only advantage is the machines, which can handle this kind of soil. How much time it would take cannot be estimated so early."
The estimated cost of the Gottigere-Nagazara line is around Rs 11,014 crore; according to the Phase 2 detailed project report, BMRC had estimated it to be complete by 2023.
All this only points to a probable delay of the airport link from Nagawara via Jakkur and Yelahanka even as Siddaramaiah has directed officials to prepare a detailed project report.

There are going to spend Rs 11,014 crore for this metro line, which include disturbing crowded areas, tunnel boring, a decade of time, etc.
But they are ignoring to use existing rail line on Devanahalli route, with DEMU trains and station near flyover will reduce commute to airport drastically.

rdb*^   129373 news posts
Entry# 2265598   News Entry# 301750         Tags   Past Edits
It now terminates at Mangaluru Junction
The Southern Railway (SR) will send a proposal to South Western Railway (SWR) to extend train no. 16575/576 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Express till Mangaluru Central.
It also might suggest change in departure timing from Mangaluru, which is at 11.30 a.m. at present. The train reaches Yeshwantpur at 8.30 p.m., which passengers feel highly inconvenient.
This decision follows widespread
discontent among passengers, both from Bengaluru and Mangaluru, to short-terminate the train at Mangaluru Junction and at Yeshwantpur. It was originally announced to ply between Bengaluru and Mangaluru Central as a daily service by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
Shifting train
Divisional Railway Manager of SR’s Palakkad division Naresh Lalwani told The Hindu that the zone has to shift an existing service from Mangaluru Central to Mangaluru Junction to accommodate the Mangaluru-Bengaluru Express.
The division is doing the exercise of identifying a train, which is not patronised much to be shifted to Mangaluru Junction. Chennai Egmore Express and Kacheguda bi-weekly Express are some of the trains on the radar.
DRUCC meeting
G. Hanumanth Kamath, member of Palakkad Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee and president of West Coast Rail Yatri Abhivriddhi Sangha, raised the issue during the recent committee meeting in Palakkad.
Mr. Kamath told The Hindu that he highlighted the problems being faced by passengers of the Bengaluru-Mangaluru Express that was flagged off on April 9. Mangaluru Central is conspicuously located in the heart of the city while Junction is located remotely, he had said.
The present departure timing too is inconvenient for passengers as they reach Bengaluru late night, Mr. Kamath had said and urged the Railways to start the train early in the morning, preferably before 8 a.m.
Mr. Lalwani had promised the member to hold discussions with the SWR about extension till Central as well change in departure timing.
Mr. Kamath said the Yatri Sangha would continue to pursue the matter of extending the train from Yeshwantpur to Bengaluru City.

North Kerala connectivity to Bluru is also profit making for Ksrtc and other buses, hmrdc is a reason not to ply trains via hassan, actual players are bus lobby to restrict trains via this short route.
