RAILWAYS IN Dharwad District ( Southern Maratha Railway Company HQ-Dharwad) The Southern Maratha Railway Company started the construction work of metregauge railway on 1.11.1882 in Dharwad district. Prior to this, the company had an agreement with the Government on 1.6.1882. Accordingly, the Government approved to fill up the deficit, if the Southern Maratha Company had... more...
no annual profit of 5% from the construction of railway lines. As expected profit was not realised and the Government remitted the amount till 1891. The present building of Karnataka College, was the main office of the Southern Maratha Railway Company. At the beginning of 1887, the company had constructed metregauge railway lines. Prior to this, in 1885, the railway workshop was started in Hubli. By 1890, this railway network was extended from Pune to Mysore (via Bangalore) and from Vijayawada to MarmaGoa. The railways made a tremendous impact on the business activities and on the social life of the people. Import and export activities of cotton and food grains were carried on briskly through railways. In rainy season also, transport activities were carried on smoothly. With the development of railways, old trade routes like ghat roads leading to ports and North Kanara coast lost their importance. By 1903-04, trade in the export of cotton increased to such an extent that, the railways could not transport all the cotton produced in the district. The extension of railway line from Hubli to Karwar could not be materialised due to the coming up of Goa railway line. 428 Dharwad District In 1908, the Sourthern Maratha Railway Company amalgamated with the Madras Railway Company under the name of Madras and Southern Maratha Railway Company. Private companies came forward to undertake the construction of the Railway lines of Hubli-Sirsi (105 km), Hubli-Yellapur (67 km) and Havanur-Haveri (35 km) in 1919. Though these proposals were considered by the Government, no progress could take place. As per the government programme, Madras and Southern Maratha Company network was included under the Southern Railway in April 1944. Accordingly, the railway lines of Dharwad district were transferred to the Sourthern Railways. The district had 315 km. of metregauge railway line in 1950-51 and there were 30 railway stations. Among the 17 taluks of the district, there was no railway line in Kalghatgi, Hangal, Hirekerur, Mundargi, Nargund, Shirhatti and Shiggaon taluks. The Hubli division came into existence when the Southern Railway was reorganised in 31.10.1956. Again, Hubli became the Divisional centre when South-Central Railway was established on 2.10.1966. The Hubli-Guntkal-Dronachalam route was also added to this zone. Hubli-Harihar route was included under Southern railway. 31.7 km of metregauge route between Alnavar-Dandeli was opened for traffic on 1.12.1919. However this route was purchased by the Southern Railways from Government of Karnataka on 1.10.1962. The district had a total of 320.72 km length of railway line as on 31.3.1994 and the details are as follow : 1] Pune- Bangalore route enters Dharwad district through Londa junction in Belgaum district near the Alnawar Railway Station. At the Southern border of the district, it enters Harihar in Chitradurga district. List of Railway stations of this division is as follows : Alanawar, Kashanatti, Kambaraganive, Nagalavi, Muguda, Karakoppa, Dharwad, Navalur, Amargol, Unakal, Hubli, Kundgol, Samshi, Gudageri, Yalavigi, Savanur, Karjagi, Haveri, Byadgi, Devaragudda, Ranibennur and Chalageri. 2] Hubli-Sholapur route passes through Hubli, Navalgund-Gadag and Ron taluks, and after Hole Alur railway station, by crossing Malaprabha river, enters Bijapur district. The Railway stations coming under the jurisdiction of this district, in this route are Hubli, Kusugal, Hebsur, Shishuvinahalli, Navalgund road, Annigeri, Kondikoppa, Hulkoti, Binkadakatti, Gadag, Hombal, Balaganur, Mallapur, Somanakatti and Hole Alur, after crossing the Malaprabha river, it enters Bijapur district, 3] HubliGuntkal railway route passes through Sholapur route upto Hubli-Gadag and after Gadag passes through Kanaginahal and Harlapur railway statioins and near the 84th km stone, leaves the district border towards Hospet. Details of the number of passengers who travelled from various prominent railway stations of the district and the revenue earned for the year 1992-93 and 1993-94. are as follow : Railway station 1992-93 1993-94 No.of Passengers Revenue No.of Passengers Revenue Hubli 9,67,826 4,28,57,568 9,56,391 4,57,15,878 Gadag 8,89,607 1,08,44,355 8,49,983 1,07,31,563 Dharwad 1,72,205 66,92,702 1,22,228 52,28,358 Alnawar 63,514 10,55,112 50,651 9,69,317 Annigeri 42,186 4,96,634 40,388 4,26,702 Revenue earned by Goods Transport Hubli 90,09,429 84,66,706 Source : Regional Railway Managers Office, Hubli. Transport and Communications 429 In keeping with the policy of the Central government to convert all the existing railway lines into broadgauge, in a haste manner broadgauge conversion work has been taken up in this district also and is in progress. A length of 50.45 km route in the Hubli-Londa line, is expected to be completed before March 31,1995, involving an approximate cost of Rs.53 crores. The conversion work of 143 km between Hubli-Hospet is expected to be completed before 31.5.1995. There is a scheme to open the routes of Bangalore-Hubli and Miraj to traffic on 1st April, 1995. The conversion of railway broadgauge between Hubli-Harihar, had commenced from the year 1994-95. After its completion, the scheme to run Shatabdi express between Bangalore-Hubli has been sanctioned. Of the total railway line of 320.72 km. in the district 193.72 Km. and 127.00 Km. of railway lines are controlled by South-Central and Southern Railway respectively. Railway Workshop, Hubli The Hubli metregauge workshop established by the British in 1885, was taken over by the Southern Maratha Railway Company in 1919. In 1966, it came under the control of the newly established South-Central Railway from the Southern Railway. Repairs and maintenance work of steam engines, carriages, wagons etc. related to metergauge were undertaken in this workshop. Nowadays, there has been an increase in the use of diesal and electric engines. This workshop is capable of regaining the importance it had attained previously, if only the workshop exclusively takes up repair works connected with the broadgauge lines. The production unit of this workshop almost came to standstill with the production of the last steam engine in Jan.1995. source Google @click here
No I said if politicians push for it a new station can be built closer to Dandeli town and further the line extended to Yellapura. They got 20 Cr this time in budget for this line, lets see how they use it.

I could talk about them, but then everyone will abuse me :P :P they... more...
vent, numerous times, absolutely obnoxious fumes directly in air. the stench is enough to make your stomach churn even at a distance of few Kms. if they never bothered with endangering people's health there, doubt they'll bother with paying railways.
