Again going by this news report it seems that Taguppa Honnavar rail line would be a real possibility. /news/post/70484

Yeah you are right. Equally people are fighting for Hubli-Ankola line which is almost parallel to this though separated by around 50-100 kms.

If KR could build 738 kms of track in less than 10 years, then this line should not take more than a year !!

Sir even on plains they simpply drag new line and GC projects like anything. Even electrification is not going on fast. How do expect a line in difficult Ghat section that requires clearing of thick vegetation will be completed in one year ?

Building a small stretch of single line will hardly take 10-12 months if the highly corrupt govt officials work with dedication. Let me tell you that the line of hardly 100 kms between Apta and Roha took more time than building 738 kms of line over difficult territory ! Reason? The Roha line was built by IR and the KR line was built by KR itself without any "red tapism" !! The reason usually given by officials is lack of funds. But I am surprised to see more than 1 lakh crores being allotted to Kashmir railway which does not have good Return of Investment !

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
