Ginigera - Raichur New Line.
New Station: Gangavathi.
A major milestone will be achieved by this year end when one of the biggest towns of Karnataka, which was hitherto not connected by rail
link, will be on the IR map :)
1. I visited Gangavathi yesterday to see the progress of the new station. This line's Ginigera - Chikkabenakal Section was inaugurated this year /blog/post/2217215.
2. From Chikkabenakal onwards track laying has been completed till the outskirts of Gangavathi about 2 Kms from the station.
3. Ground work, including the railway bridge over Gangavathi - Raichur highway, for the track laying is complete upto the station and also ballast and sleepers are ready too.
4. The station building is under construction. Just like other stations like Chikkabenakal /blog/post/2217215, this station will be multi-storied due to the elevated track section.
5. The foundation for the PFs are under construction can be seen, and whole line till Gangavathi will be ready in a few months. By this year end it, hopefully it will be inaugurated.
6. Further on, I learnt, the earth work and elevated track bed, RoBs, RuBs is almost completed upto some 2 Kms beyond Karatagi - the next major town, which is part of Gangavathi Taluk.
So that means its just some 18 Kms from Sindhanuru - the biggest town on the complete line. That would take another year, perhaps.
7. The entire line is slated for completion by 2020 (officially) - /blog/post/2251228.
All above info is based on what I could see and also glean from the locals.
