BZA - TEL 1 hr 45 min ? Its normally 35-40 min, clear wastage of 1 hrs. VSKP-OGL/NLR passengers might have taken this as a better over night with less time.
ANy ways still a better option, but for a CC train long route is cruel that to in night.

I think its better to avoid diverting any train via ngnt until doubling is completed btn tel-gnt. also better to run dd as day train instead o/n.

Restoration of TSR - VJA line would be a good option too... If done, some trains, which don't have a stop at TEL can be diverted via NGNT.

We request for extending tungabadra express train till to dharvad. Also for rake sharing they can use janasadharan spl train which swr has introduced running inbetween dharvad to bellary as this train can rename as tungabadra and can extend upto secunderabad.this will not disturb existing train timings which currently running but this will give connectivity.for kurnool and bellary in daytime.
So please vote for it looking for best as this will hit rock star train inthis route.

it'll be good to see the train passing through tb dam @hospet if it extended and train can run with both second sitting & sleeper class coaches (krishna exp model). Also its better to revive old vijaya nagar exp used to run btn gtl-vasco on mg track.

Earlier i have seen this vijayanagar express which the first train was intrduced after guage conversion between gtl and hubli.this train used to start at 9 30 am in gtl to hubli,later dont know the reason why it got terminated.
But if scr and swr with sr if they think then it can be introduced starting from pudicherry to kolhapur as oneslip and another slip should be goa.
If this works then this will be blockbuster train.

i'd same experience, looks like some thing is stopping this train to run on-time btn ru-bza with unofficial stops at bpp,apl,ndo and allowing other trains to cross this train. so people have doubts and some are going back to travels to save their weekend time. Refer my post /blog/post/2071956 on the same.

Dec 14 2016 (15:50)   Develop dumping yardsite into park: CPI(M); line from Kurnool to the State capital

rdb*^   124962 news posts

KURNOOL: CPI(M) leaders on Tuesday sought construction of a mega park on the lines of NTR gardens on the 28-acre stretch of dumping yard site at Joharapuram in Kurnool.
“There is hardly any noteworthy park in Kurnool town where people can spend with their family members and most smaller parks have disappeared due to encroachment,” CPI(M) leader T. Ramesh Kumar said during the party’s ‘Poruyatra’ at Joharapuram.
The dumping yard site would also be encroached upon by vested interests if it was not developed into a mega park, he feared. The party had
obstructed moves of the ruling party to allot the site for housing to municipal corporators in the past, Mr. Ramesh Kumar recalled.
Party city secretary D. Ghouse Desai and leaders Radhakrishna and Anji Babu urged the State government to fulfil the promises made by Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu during his Independence Day address in Kurnool in 2014. The promise to establish industries to generate employment to youth remained unfulfilled, they alleged.
They sought construction of an additional summer storage tank and build flyovers in Kurnool to meet the needs of the growing population. The party leaders wanted a railway line from Kurnool to the State capital Amaravati.
Party leaders Ramudu, Nagaraju, Narasimhulu, Ramakrishna, Venkateswarlu, Rangaswamy, Abdul Desai, Rajaka Sangham leader Gurusekhar, Praja Natya Mandali leaders Nagaswamy, Maddileti, Bazari and Balaiah took part in the ‘poruyatra’.

Entry# 2077159   News Entry# 287304         Tags   Past Edits
KCR has a meeting with officials at his camp office
Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Wednesday promised complete support of the Government to the L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad (L&TMRH) in early completion of the project construction under way across three traffic corridors in the twin cities.
Discussion on the project
Mr. Rao had a detailed discussion on the progress of the project at
his camp office in the presence of L&T Deputy MD, Metro Rail non-executive Chairman S.N. Subrahmanyam, L&TMRH MD Shivanand Nimbargi, Hyderabad Metro Rail MD N.V.S. Reddy and CM’s Principal Secretary S. Narsing Rao.
Metro Rail authorities informed him that the works on Corridor One --Miyapur to L.B. Nagar -- would be completed within a year, that is, November 2017, and work on all the three corridors (Corridor Two - Jubilee Bus Station to Falaknuma and Corridor Three - Nagole to Hi-Tec City/Raidurg) would be done by August 2018.
The scheduled completion of the project as per the Concession Agreement is July 2017 as the actual month when the work started was July 2012.
Trial runs are currently running in Stage one - Nagole to Mettuguda, an 8-km stretch on Corridor One and also for stage two - Miyapur to S.R. Nagar, a 12-km stretch.
About 17 stations are ready in stages one and two while work at three interchange stations - Ameerpet, MGBS & Parade Grounds as well as 30 stations was in progress. Altogether 75 per cent of the project was done, with viaduct foundations: 61.20 km; piers: 58.10 km; span erection: 49.0 km and track work: 36.25 km, Metro Rail officials said.
“L&T is committed to completing the project and I thank the CM and the Government for their continued support and cooperation in ensuring removal of roadblocks for the rapid progress of project.
We are in discussion with the Government to commission certain stages of the project soon,” said Mr. Subrahmanyam, in a press statement later.
