There’s some good news for passengers travelling between Bengaluru and Mangaluru by
train. The travel time is soon expected to reduce by 90 minutes, with a new railway line between the two cities via Shravanabelagola and Hassan getting almost readied. All it needs is clearance from the Commissioner of Rail Safety.
