Bengaluru: By next week, it will take you only 15 minutes to travel from Byyappanahalli to Whitefield!
“On August 18, the suburban rail service will be inaugurated from Byyappanahalli to Whitefield. We have put in a lot of efforts to make this happen. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will launch it," MP P.C. Mohan told Deccan Chronicle, adding that the exact timings and frequency will be announced soon.
Residents of ITPL, Whitefield and surrounding areas had been demanding the suburban railway service to get relief from congestion caused by Metro work. Mohan had
written to CM Siddaramaiah too about it.
CPRO of South Western Railway Vijaya confirmed the inauguration of the service, saying, “1 DEMU train will be inaugurated next week from Byyappanahalli to Whitefield. Minister Suresh Prabhu might launch it through video-conferencing."
Mr Krishna Prasad, member, Karnataka Railway Vedike, said, “This will surely be helpful and will especially cater to the software crowd in ITPL. It is a step in the right direction and will bring travel time down to 15 minutes.” The route will have four stations Byyappanahalli, K.R. Puram, Hoodi and Whitefield. The citizen group, Whitefield Rising, was demanding a short loop train service to start before the Metro begins digging up roads. However, that did not happen, resulting in commuters complaining of narrower roads and nightmarish traffic. This move by the Railways is expected to ease the burden on the streets.

Jammu Tawi Sealdah Hamsafar when will start
Why Uttar Pradesh is getting train in every months I think prabhu ji has forgotten other state or we have only two states up and Gujarat.
After more than 60 years of independence their is no direct train to Shri Jaganath Puri from North India (CHANDIGARH, Himachal, Punjab,Haryana and Jammu).
Too sad for the people/
tourist of these states.

Aug 11 2017 (13:18)   Trial run of double decker to Bengaluru goes off smoothly

COIMBATORE: Much to the relief of railway activists, industrialists and public who have been demanding another train to Bengaluru, a preliminary trial run of the Coimbatore-Bangalore Double Decker train was conducted on Thursday morning. With an engine and three coaches, the train was run from Thirupathur to Coimbatore. Though the train reached later than scheduled, no operational problems were faced, an official said.
At around 12.45pm, the engine with two double decker coaches and one power call hauled by an AC locomotive slowly chugged into platform six in Coimbatore Junction. Curious onlookers began gathering around the train, especially to have a look at the double decker coaches. Many people even entered the coaches to have a look at the interiors. "This is
the first time a double decker train is coming to Coimbatore," said the station master, Chinnaraju.
The three coaches arrived from Bangalore earlier this week. "We have done the trial run at a speed of 80 kmph and since it was a double decker train, which is taller in height and wider, we had to check if there was any overhead traction, the speed at which the coaches could be pulled by the engine and if there was any problems we faced because of its width," said the divisional railway manager, Hari Shankar Verma.
"On Friday, we will run another trip from Coimbatore to Thirupathur and the train will return from Thirupathur to Salem. On Saturday, the train will be run from Salem to Coimbatore. We will then submit a report on the trial run and its success to the zonal railway board," Verma said.
"The trial rake will leave Coimbatore on Friday at 7.45am, stop at Coimbatore North, Tirupur by 8.55 pm to 9 pm, Erode and Salem, reaching Tirupathur by 2.45 pm. It will again depart from Tirupathur at 4.10pm and reach Salem by 6.30 pm," said the Salem division spokesperson.
The exact number of double decker coaches allotted for the train is not yet fixed by the railway board, an official said. "It is likely to be a locomotive, two power cars and 10 double-decked coaches," the official said.
"The number of coaches will initially depend on Bangalore's pit lane cleaning facility and capacity, because we don't have a pit lane that can handle double decker coaches," said a railways spokesperson.

If it is a day train it is surely going to be a failure.
The requirement was for an overnight train, and even in that a departure on Sunday night from CBE is the need of the hour

Jul 27 2017 (14:20)   Whitefield industries voice land and traffic concerns

karbang~   196 news posts

Members of the Whitefield Area Commerce and Industries Association (WACIA) met on Wednesday to discuss concerns regarding the 15.5km Byappanahalli-Whitefield corridor, work on which kicked off in June.
Though most properties along the line have been successfully acquired, problems involving about 15 properties are yet to be resolved, said Sandeep Mittal, member of WACIA. “Of the 15, four or five are under litigation. As far as the rest are concerned, the rightful owners have not been identified and notified for acquisition,“ he said.
WACIA member A Selvaraj said his wife's property is among
those which have been incorrectly identified.“There is a piece of land in her name but we have not received any notification for acquisition from BMRC. I plan to approach the court for a stay. If the rightful owners are not correctly identified, the project will only be delayed further,“ he rued.
The members fear congestion in the area will only increase once Metro work gains momentum. “This part of the city is already clogged.The narrow roads of Whitefield will have to bear the burden of construction, road widening and traffic. The quality of roads should be maintained when the Metro service comes up,“ said Rakesh Chaudhary , a resident of Shantiniketan complex.
Anjali Saini, a member of Whitefield Rising, who works at International Technology Park Limited (ITPL), said while the new Hoodi railway station had eased traffic, Metro work should be accompanied by a revamp of the suburban rail system. “The Goods Shed satellite station should be turned into a stop only till the Metro construction is over, as it will be a midpoint between Whitefield and Hoodi. It will reduce the number of vehicles on the road.Also, there's a need for more feeder buses,“ she said.
Several members felt the appointment of a senior official as a nodal officer by BMRC will go a long way in addressing infrastructural concerns of citizens, be it regarding power and water utilities Bescom and BWSSB or traffic-related problems.
Yesudass Singaraj, an employee of Ernst and Young who works out of RMZ Infinity Business Park, said lack of knowledge on the Metro line had impeded planning of a foot overbridge. Members are in the process of drafting a memorandum, which will be submitted to BMRC.

Jul 27 2017 (08:58)   PM to flag off train linking Rameswaram and Ayodhya

karbang~   196 news posts
Entry# 2363885   News Entry# 309723         Tags   Past Edits
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Thursday flag off a train, Rameswaram-Faizabad weekly express, that would connect the two pilgrimage centres of Rameswaram and Ayodhya.
This was one of the trains proposed in Railway Budget 2014 to connect Rameswaram with tourist and pilgrimage centres like Bengaluru, Chennai, Ayodhya, Varanasi and Haridwar. Rameswaram-Varanasi train has already been introduced.
Mr. Modi will be in Rameswaram to inaugurate the memorial of former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on his second death anniversary.
will flag off the inaugural train through video-conferencing.
The train would connect six States – Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.
The inaugural train of the weekly express would leave Rameswaram at 12.30 p.m. and reach Faizabad at 11 p.m. on Saturday.
Regular service
However, the regular service of Train No. 16793/16794 Rameswaram-Faizabad-Rameswaram will commence on August 2 (Wednesday) from Faizabad and on August 8 (Sunday) from Rameswaram.
It would run with a diesel locomotive between Rameswaram and Chennai Egmore and run on electric traction from Chennai to Faizabad.
The new train will connect south Tamil Nadu with important stations like Vijayawada, Jabalpur and Allahabad.
“Though it is run as a train to connect pilgrimage centres, it would get better patronage if it is run through Madurai. Already, Rameswaram- Varanasi train is run on the same route without touching Madurai,” senior president of Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industries S. Rethnivelu said.
Madurai was also an important destination for people from the north, he said.
“They can visit Sri Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple, and three of the six abodes of Lord Muruga, including Palani in Dindigul district and Tirupparankundram in Madurai district, if the train was run through Madurai,” Mr. Rethnivelu said.
Besides, it would help more passengers from the south get direct connectivity to Ayodhya and also help businessmen go to Vijayawada, Jabalpur and Allahabad, he said.
