Railway infrastructure in north Karnataka will take a boost with Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhu launching several initiatives, including commencement of new line work between Gadag and Wadi (257 km) and doubling of Gadag-Kudgi-Hotgi line (284 km).
The initiatives, falling under Hubballi-headquartered South Western Railway (SWR), is not only expected to enhance rail connectivity in north Karnataka, but also likely to boost the economy of the region. Gadag-Wadi new line, which has been pending for several years, is also expected to reduce rail-road distance between Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The launch will be through videoconferencing from Goa on August 18.

line
The 257 km-long Gadag-Wadi line passing through Koppal, Raichur, Yadgir and Kalaburagi districts and covering Yelburga, Kushtagi, Mudgal, Lingasugur, Shorapur and Shahpur is a prestigious project for the Railways.
The SWR said the line will help boost economy in the region and also play a key role in transportation of raw material and finished goods, besides serving travel needs of the public. Sanctioned in 2013-14, it is being undertaken at a cost of Rs. 2,841 crore under 50:50 cost sharing basis with Government of Karnataka. The government is also providing 3,472 acres of land required free of cost while 550 acres has already been handed over. The SWR has awarded contract for earthwork and minor bridges for 57 km between Talkal-Kushtagi at a cost of Rs. 85 crore. Acquisition of 640 acres of land between Shahapur-Wadi for 47 km line is in the advance stages.
Gadag-Hotgi doubling
Sanctioned in 2014-15, the 285 km Gadag-Kudgi-Hotgi line doubling will enhance the line capacity improving average speed. The National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd., which is executing the 4,000 MW thermal power plant at Kudgi, is funding part of the (134 km) project under “Customer Funding Model” by investing Rs. 946 crore. The Railways will reimburse the investment through freight rebate once the project gets completed in 2019-20. The entire project is targeted for completion by 2020-21.
Other initiatives include dedication of new platform shelters at Gadag Railway Station; inauguration of new building for Chikkodi Road Station in Belagavi district; inauguration of newly constructed platforms 2/3 at Koppal Railway Station; and inauguration of platform shelters at Raibag Railway Station.

Either Bidar - Yesvantpur exp or Nanded - Bengaluru exp should be diverted via Humnabad, once new line completed.

A new train can start from Bidar-SBC via GR, RC instead of the existing YPR-Bidar getting diverted. Hubbali-SC exp can be diverted, then UBL, GDG, Bagalkote & Vijayapura will get connection to Bidar directly.
Also SWR should try Bidar-MYS exp via GR, RC, BAY, CTA, ASK, Hassan.

Sir, any chances of shifting the PM of YPR-Bidar exp to Bidar since pitlines would also be ready by that time ?? Then that vacated pitline at YPR can be used to run some other train for Karnataka.

Re# 2382600-38            Tags   Past Edits
BIDR Exp should run in the same path. It is a very good train for Sedam, Malkhed Road, Chittapur with a good number of seats. Also, Bidar needs a dedicated train. If it is diverted via Gulbarga, Bidar will lose a lot of seats to Gulbarga. One more thing is, it is not much profit to Gulbarga as well in terms of the schedule of the train, as SUR - YPR SF and BIDR - YPR EXP run one behind the other. Nanded Exp should be diverted via Gulbarga. With Nanded Exp, Gulbarga will get a train that leaves at late night from Bengaluru and also that arrives early morning at Bengaluru. Plus, it will reduce some end to end time as well. Hence it would be a win-win situation for all if Nanded Exp is diverted and not Bidar Exp.

Yes, SWR started this train with the condition that BIDR should be able to handle PM of this train in the future. I expect this to happen latest by next TT change.

Khair jo bhi ho 2017 ke brand new coaches mile hai isey.
