been provided at Gubbi railway station. Tumakuru – Gubbi (18 km) stretch is on Bengaluru–Huballi line spanning 478 km of which 400 km is in Mysuru Division and the rest is in Bengaluru Division. Doubling of Railway track in this section will increase line capacity of this important line connecting Bengaluru to Huballi, Belagavi, Mumbai etc., This will give impetus to rail infrastructure in the region. It constitutes the main trunk route for Karnataka. The doubling project once completed fully will result in much faster movement of trains and improve intercity connectivity, added Railways.
