Nov 23 (16:45)   Work on Bengaluru's Baiyappanahalli road bridge restarts after seven years

Massive relief is in store for vehicle users heading from Banaswadi, Kalyan Nagar, Hennur and Kasturi Nagar towards Old Madras Road.
Work on the Road Over Bridge (ROB) that was hanging fire for the last seven years began last month and is likely to be completed early next year. This will ensure easy access to the upcoming Baiyappanahalli railway Coaching Terminal for residents.
The bridge, proposed in 2010, was intended to provide easy access between the Coaching Terminal and Swami Vivekananda Metro station. It ground to a halt three years later, with

70% of the work completed. A ramp was constructed on one side of the bridge but completion of the other ramp depended on the handing over of land by the Defence Ministry and this caused enormous delay.
“The Defence Ministry handed over the required 10,207 square metres of land to us in August 2019 and some work had begun when construction ground to a halt for five months due to the labour shortage caused by the pandemic,” said Chief Engineer, West, Constructions, South Western Railway, R K Singh.
Work started in October and has been going on at a brisk pace since then.
“We are targeting opening of the ROB by March 2021. Even if it gets a bit delayed, we are sure of opening it up by April next year,” he added. The ramp being constructed towards the Swami Vivekananda Metro Station has nine spans, with each span running into 30 metres.
“We are yet to build 270 metres of the ramp and 190 metres of the retaining wall for it. So a total length of 460 metres is to be constructed with the width running to 7.5 metres,” said another official.
“The wall of the Defence property presently falls within our construction area. Another wall needs to be constructed to safeguard Defence land before we can demolish the present wall,” he added.
A subway three metres in length and height of 2.7 metres was also being built for the use of two-wheelers and pedestrians. “The subway will give relief to many vehicle users. Work on it will begin within 10 days and we plan to open it for public by the first week of December,” he said.

Unless Hosur line and Yelahanka line are linked via TCTB, the congestion and wastage of time will not reduce.
Linking would give tremendous opportunity for passing trains via Bangalore

It would be better if 20% seats are offered with 20% discount and another 10% seats with 10% discount. Balance 70% at full fare. For seats with discount, higher cancellation charges can be levied to discourage non serious bookings.
With this way, one can book seat properly without waiting for last 4 days before journey.

Nov 19 (09:49)   With very few passengers turning up, train from Bengaluru to Chennai stopped

BENGALURU: One of the most jam-packed rail sections between Bengaluru and Chennai has become unpopular of late, thanks to the Covid pandemic. A Super Fast (SF) special launched between the two cities stands cancelled from November 21. 
The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central-KSR SF train (Train nos 02027/02028) launched on October 23 on all days of the week, barring Tuesday, was to be operational until further notice from the Railways. It has now decided to stop it due to poor occupancy. 
Divisional Railway Manager A K Verma told The New Indian Express, “We have been

observing occupancy in the past three to four days. The special has only AC First class seating and Chair car in it. Out of 120 seats available on first AC, it had only 7 seats on one day from our end and 25 on another day.” The overall patronage, too, was not promising at all, he added. 
“From the Bengaluru end, the train ran with just 20% occupancy while it had only 10% occupancy when coming from Chennai. Hence, we decided to stop this special,” he said. The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central departs from the city at 6am and reaches Chennai at 11am, while the Chennai Central-KSR Special departs from Chennai at 5.30pm and reaches Bengaluru at 10.30pm.

Exactly. Brindavan express does not have AC coaches. 23/24 non AC coaches with 108 seats will bring big relief.

Slight realignment with Vishwamanava is ok, but extension is not preferred. Extension of dR UBL if thought of should be to Ballari/ Guntakal. For Bangalore Mumbai, we should get a proper SF via SUR, RC, GTL. For MYS, CSMT MAJN Rocket SF should get extended.

The Sanvordem Curchorem Rail Consumers Association (SCRCA) has demanded that the railways restart passenger trains between Collem and Vasco and the express trains that ran along the Londa-Vasco route before they were suspended in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
SCRCA president Devanand Bhandari demanded that the booking counter at the Sanvordem-Curchorem station be reopened soon. He said that with the booking counter being shut, people who need to avail refund of their train tickets for journeys that were booked before the suspension of trains, have to travel all the way to Vasco for the purpose.

present, while all passenger trains remain suspended, only the Vasco-Nizamuddin Goa Express train service has resumed. Before the suspension of the trains, six trains, i.e three pairs of express and passenger trains, would run daily on this stretch. SWR officials said the ongoing track doubling works would enable the railways to introduce additional passenger train services.
“There is huge demand for introducing of new passenger trains from representatives of public connecting Goa with Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, which can be fulfilled only by completing doubling of railway track,” SWR chief public relations officer E Vijaya said.

VSG. VLNK should run as a daily train. 3 days via UBL, KJM, KPD, VM and four days via UBL, BAND, HSRA, SA, NMKL, TPJ.
Similarly, a daily SR train from MV to UBL three days via TPJ, NMKL, HSRA and four days via VM, CUPJ, RU, GTL.
By properly aligning, one can get a daily TPJ - Bangalore - UBL train
