Construct Railway Line for Kodagu.
construct new Railway lines in Kodgu District. As Coorg is the one and only district in Karnataka without being connected to Railway Line. The proposed Railway line can be from Mangalore & Thalassery. As Mangalore-Hassan line is passing through Kabakaputtur, new Railway line can be laid from Kabakaputtur to Virajpet via Sullia, Sampaje, Madikeri & Murnad. This line is expected to have a maximum length of 115km, so the total length from Mangalore to Madikeri will be around 135km and Mangalore to Virajpet distance will be around 165km. Ghat section & forest are only expected between Sampaje & Madikeri for a distance of around 15 km. Another line shall be from
Thalassery to Mysore via Kannur Airport(Mattannur), Iritty, Virajpet, Gonikkoppal, Thithimathi, Aneshowkkoor, Hunsur & Bilikere, linking Hassan-Mysore line, just after Bilikere. This line is expected to have a maximum length of 180km. So, the total length from Mangalore to Mysore via Madikeri & Virajpet will be only 265km, as against 310km at present via Sakleshpur & Hassan. Kannur-Mattannur(Airport) line is also expected alongwith Thalassery-Mysore line. On Thalassery-Mysore line, Ghat section & Forest is expected between Makutta & Perumbadi(near Virajpet) for a distance of 15km. Another forest section is for a distance of 10km at Anechowkkoor area. As Kodagu is rich in coffee, spices, paddy, etc, this line is also important for its agriculture for port connectiviy, besides tourism. Kodagu has been neglected by both the state and central governemnts till now. Even Chikmagalur is now connected by rail, leaving Coorg as the only district without any single metre of railway track in Karnataka. Unfortunately, elected representatives from Kerala & Karnataka do not show any interest for these lines. Also, this line will connect Kannur, Thalassery, Kozhikode, etc with Bangalore within the shortest distance. Also, tourism in Mysore and Kerala will be highly supported, thus creating a tourist circuit between Kerala & Karnataka.
