The work of rectifying the gradient between Hospapete and Vyasanakere stations, which was pending for long and has been at last taken up, was going on in full swing.
As such the hopes of the people of Hosapete, Hagari Bommanahalli, Kottur and Harihar, of getting passenger train services after about 23 years, got rekindled.
Rectification of the gradient was essential as it was posing a hurdle for plying of passenger trains on this Hosapete-Kottur-Harihar route., which was steep with several curves for about 1.5 km stretch.
the line between Hosapete-Kottur-Harihar was ready, the railway authorities had not taken a decision to ply passenger train beyond Kottur towards Hosapete, keeping in view the safety aspects, because of the gradient. However, goods trains were being plied since June this year.
The ongoing work of realigning the track to rectify gradient and also the curves was expected to be completed in a couple of days as heavy machineries and earth movers have been pressed into service to accelerate the pace of work.
Later, the works of signalling, electrification and others technical in nature would be taken up and was likely to be completed in about 45 days.
“We can hope that passenger train on this route will start plying in a couple of months once the rectification work is completed and inspection done by Commissioner for Safety,” B. Sriramulu, MP, told presspersons after inspecting the ongoing works on Tuesday.
Mr. Sriramulu also informed that the Railways has already approved the work of constructing a rail over bridge at Anantashayana Gudi gate being taken up. The RoB was essential for the smooth movement of vehicular traffic of tourists visiting Hampi.
