The citizens council today gave a memorandum to Mrs. Usha Padhe Jt. Secretary ,Ministry Of Civil Aviation Govt Of India via airport director Rajesh Kumar Maurya at the Belagavi airport.
Belagavi airport has become the busiest airport in the region having more than 26 arrivals and departures to different parts of India viz, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad , etc. having maximum number of commuters / passengers traveling. With so much of passengers and being the busiest airport terminal we regret to bring to your kind notice that there is no proper modes of transit connectivity link between Belagavi airport ( apx 15 kms away from city center) to Belagavi City.
we would like to bring to your kind notice mam, that the Belagavi railway station is the major nearest Railway Station having its rail connectivity with equidistance from Mumbai and Bangalore. Even Sambra is a Railway station which is very near to the Belagavi airport. With the infrastructure ready we think that we should make maximum of available resources and to overcome the problem of Airport to City Center connectivity we feel that in present scenario Rail Bus or Rail Car is the best suitable option for Belagavi to solve the problems faced by passengers visiting Belagavi.
As you are aware of the fact that the Airport rail link is a service providing passenger rail transport from an airport to a nearby city center by mainline or commuter trains, rapid transit, people mover or light rail. Direct links operate straight to the airport terminal , while the other systems require an intermediate use of people mover or shuttle bus. Although the rail links have been popular solutions in Europe and japan for decades only recently it is gaining its popularity in India too. Advantages of Rail Car includes faster travel time and easy interconnection with other public transport while authorities have benefited from less highway and parking congestions , less pollution and additional business opportunities. Additionally , the links benefits airports by drawing in more passengers via easy access.
In India Indian railways has successfully implemented Rail Bus services in following destination, viz.1. Yeshwantpur To Nelamangam ( 22 kms ) SWR2. Bagalkot to Khajjidoni ( 29 kms )SWR3. Bangarpet to Kollar ( 17 kms ) SWR4. Vijapure ( Gujarat) to Ambliyasan ( 42kms ) WR5. Merta Road to Merta City ( 15 kms ) NWR6. Khamgaon to Jalamb ( 13 kms ) CR7. Kakinada to Kotipalli ( 45 kms ) SCR8. Bobbali to Saluru ( 16 kms ) SCR9. Mathura to Vrindavan ( 15 kms ) NCR10. Indara to Doharighat ( 37 kms ) NER
For the reasons stated above we would like to request you Madam, to have a coordination meeting with the Indian Railways and to take up this issues with a priority and make our region more better place to live in. We hope you will consider this matter as most important and urgent and do the needful for the better development of our city in a true sense

The Main aim of the Inland Container depot is to facilitate Exporters / Importers of North Karnataka area. To revive the operations at the ICD and an amount of about Rs.5 Cr. was invested in stepping up the infrastructure at the terminal like paved area, high mast lighting, Cameras, reach stacker to load and unload container, EDI CONNECTIVTY to ensure all transactions would be online.
But unfortunately the Railway Department terminate the allotted lease of Land admeasuring to 18000 sqms to CONCOR in 2019, since the Land is urgently required by Railways for developing store of PGCIL for Electrification purpose vide Notice No CON/SCR/CM/MOA/ Desur/2019/1098 dtd 25th October 2019.

Many of these will start from Bgm once pit lines are ready as part of station redevelopment, even new Dwr-Bgm line via Kittur will give boost for faster connectivity to these areas.

Line till Hirebagewadi is clear and land acquisition is in parallel with National Highway from Dharwad. But after that there are two discussions going on.
1. Line will join Desur as sanctioned.
2. Re align it, to bypass Bgm station and join at Sambra station making it as Bgm Jn. This will help freights to skip densely populated city area and go from outside, just like Hubballi Bypass line. Another reason for this is land is fertile between Hirebagewadi-Kanvikarvinakoppa-Desur and farmers are not ready to give it.
here is not all long distance trains will come to Bgm City station, passenger has to go Sambra(Bgm Jn) station, discussion is still on.

Nov 15 (14:12)   जौनपुर में मालगाड़ी के 21 डिब्बे डिरेल:महामना लेट थी इसलिए निकाली गई मालगाड़ी, टूटी पटरी पर पलट गई; शुक्र है बड़ा हादसा टल गया

जौनपुर के श्रीकृष्ण नगर रेलवे स्टेशन के पूर्वी छोर पर गुरुवार सुबह पटरी टूटने से एक मालगाड़ी के 21 डिब्बे डिरेल हो गए। घटना सुबह 7:45 बजे की है। खाली मालगाड़ी लखनऊ से वाराणसी की तरफ जा रही थी। मालगाड़ी स्टेशन को क्रास ही कर रही थी कि पटरी टूटने के कारण पलट गई। हादसा इतना जोरदार था कि आवाज सुनकर लोगों की भीड़ जमा हो गई। हादसे के बाद दिल्ली-लखनऊ-वाराणसी रेल रूट पूरी तरह से बाधित हो गया है। मौके पर रेलवे के अधिकारी भी पहुंच रहे हैं। रेलवे के अधिकारियों का कहना है कि दोपहर तक रूट सामान्य हो जाएगा।
मालगाड़ी में लगी थी 59 बोगी
से कोयला लाने के लिए सुल्तानपुर से सुबह 06:58 बजे मालगाड़ी रवाना हुई। मालगाड़ी में 59 बोगी लगी थीं। मालगाड़ी बदलापुर के श्री कृष्ण नगर रेलवे क्रॉसिंग को पार करने के बाद सुबह 07:58 बजे उदपुर घाटमपुर के पास पहुंची थी। अचानक कुछ बोगी बीच से ट्रैक से उतर गईं।
मालगाड़ी की गति अधिक होने के कारण आगे से 16 और पीछे से 21 बोगी को छोड़कर बची 21 बोगी पलट गईं। हालांकि चालक एके चौहान और गार्ड संजय यादव पूरी तरह से सुरक्षित हैं। घटना के कारण दिल्ली-लखनऊ-वाराणसी रेल मार्ग जाम हो गया है। महामना एक्सप्रेस, सुल्तानपुर-जौनपुर-वाराणसी पैसेंजर बीच में ही खड़ी हैं। इसके चलते यात्री परेशान हैं।
कई गाड़ियों का रूट डायवर्ट किया गया
मालगाड़ी से पहले यहां से महामना एक्सप्रेस को गुजरना था, लेकिन महामना एक्सप्रेस लेट हो गई थी। इसलिए मालगाड़ी को पास कराया जा रहा था। फिलहाल वाराणसी-सुल्तानपुर-लखनऊ रूट पर जाने वाली गाड़ियों का मार्ग डायवर्ट किया गया है। महामना एक्सप्रेस महारानी पश्चिम रेलवे स्टेशन के पास खड़ी है। महामना को अब प्रतापगढ़ के रूट से भेजा जा रहा है। वहीं पटना-इंदौर एक्सप्रेस भी दूसरे रूट से भेजी जाएगी।
पीडब्ल्यूआई जौनपुर बृजेश यादव ने बताया कि सुल्तानपुर से मुगलसराय जा रही मालगाड़ी के किसी डिब्बे का पहिया जाम होने के कारण यह घटना हुई है। मालगाड़ी श्रीकृष्ण नगर स्टेशन के आगे आउटर पर जैसे रेल लाइन परिवर्तन के लिए बढ़ी तभी अचानक उसका डिब्बा पलट गया। घटना की सूचना उत्तर रेलवे के लखनऊ मंडल के उच्चाधिकारियों को दे दी गई है। स्थानीय रेलवे के अधिकारी घटनास्थल की ओर रवाना हो गए हैं।
एक-दूसरे के ऊपर चढ़ गए डिब्बे
हादसा इतना भयानक था कि आवाज सुनकर आसपास गांव के लोग मौके पर इकट्ठा हो गए। मालगाड़ी के 21 डिब्बे पटरी से उतर गए थे। वहीं कई डिब्बों के पहिये झटक कर दूर जा गिरे थे। कुछ डिब्बे एक-दूसरे के ऊपर चढ़ गए थे। वहीं घटना के बाद से दिल्ली-लखनऊ-वाराणसी रेल रूट बाधित हो गया है। रेलवे के अधिकारियों का कहना है कि दोपहर तक रूट सामान्य हो जाएगा।

Nov 10 (18:25)   Costs rise as Karnataka decides to expedite old railway projects

This includes the long-pending Munirabad-Mehaboobanagar line that promises to significantly reduce the distance between Hyderabad, Hubballi and Goa
Karnataka will fast-track railway projects that are languishing since 2007 because of which their cost has almost doubled, Infrastructure Development Minister V Somanna said Wednesday.
This includes the long-pending 170-km Munirabad-Mehaboobanagar line that promises to significantly reduce the distance between Hyderabad, Hubballi and Goa.
Somanna, who
reviewed the infrastructure development department, found that of the nine railway projects cleared since 2007 at least four have seen their total cost go up from Rs 4,446 crore to Rs 8,683 crore - a 95% increase.
“There's been a huge escalation in cost. It burdens both the Centre and state. So, we have decided to expedite the projects,” Somanna said. “In the next 15-20 days, the government will resolve issues with land acquisition and other bottlenecks,” he said.
According to Somanna, the cost of the Tumakuru-Rayadurg line has gone up from Rs 479 crore to Rs 2,432 crore, Ginigera-Raichur from Rs 1,350 crore to Rs 2,565 crore, Bagalkot-Kudachi from Rs 816 crore to Rs 1,525 crore and Tumakuru-Chitradurga-Davangere from Rs 1,801 crore to Rs 2,161 crore.
Another railway line connecting Dharwad and Belagavi is still in the works.
Karnataka has a 50% share in the cost of these projects.
During the review, the minister took stock of 56 pending overbridges and underbridges (ROB/RUB). “They are also languishing in Bengaluru, Tumakuru and other places. We have decided to give some shape to this. We’re releasing our share (of funds). Once the Centre releases its share soon...minor land-related issues that were being used as an excuse for the delay (will be resolved). The delay has made citizens feel disgusted,” Somanna said.
“We want to finish all these projects in this financial year as much as possible. We will review them once every month,” he said.
The state government is holding talks with Indian Railways authorities. “They were being laggard. We have sent across whatever message we had to and work will speed up from tomorrow,” he said.
Work on new airports at Shivamogga, Vijayapura, Hassan, Raichur and Karwar are on track, the minister said. “The Shivamogga airport will be commissioned before 2022,” he said.

If according to political convenience or land not available, rail lines got tweaked, they are bound to create loss, even after they are ready. Ex:- you gave for Raichur - Gadwal, etc. This line was not needed if Krishna - Devarakadra was there. Similarly Gadag - Wadi line is tweaked as talakal-wadi now, this will also become flop, we already have Gingera - Raichur line constructing few kms away. Another example is Kudachi - Bagalkot they are tweaking it so much, when line gets ready, it will look like 'Z' shape, this will create loss.

1. Mysore to Chitradurga (fully in Mysore division)? - Mys - Bsb Exp
2. Shimoga to Ballari - Smet - Ru Spl, cancelled now
3. Kukke Subrahmanya / Puttur to Hospet - Only upto Gdg if Majn - Bjp train starts
4. Mysore Davanagere Hospet Bijapur - Ypr - Bjp Spl via Hpt
Ballari to Belgaum (fully Hubli division) - Haripriya Spl
6. Ballari to Bijapur (fully Hubli division) - Weekly Mys - Snsi exp, required daily.

Below ones need approval from other zones, and they do not co-operate with SWR. I recently heard CR objected even diversion of Mys - Nzm SJ exp via Sur - Dd route. so swr has started it back via original route Bgm - Mrj - Pune.

Wherever you go in life, we need this SAM otherwise it will be difficult to survive :) As we all know new lines are sanctioned only if it returns profit, no profit means, no new line. Similarly according to IR on an existing line, if new pax train has be sanctioned, it should return some amount back, currently only 57% recovery. That is why nowadays if trains runs more than 200 kms it will be Exp mostly.

Agree, atleast one demu train or exp ICE kind is required between SMET - BAY,
BGM - BAY, BJP - BAY, MYS - HAS - CTA - BAY, GGVT - KTY - DVG, UBL - CMGR, etc. I hope SWR will sanction them in future, as just now slowly pandemic is getting over. They can start also, with atleast old ICF rakes, which are currently used are Covid-19 isolation coaches, after sanitization.

You have got the point right in last line.
"Bangalore to every part of Eastern areas and to SR areas" Here is the profit on running trains. Intrastate they are running one ONT from Bluru from and to, that's it, over. SWR has to look beyond profit and provide atleast one normal train day time to connect between non Bluru districts. like Bay - Bjp, Mys - Bay, Bgm - Ava, etc. Hope they do it someday.

The long-delayed doubling work on the Golden Quadrilateral‘s Mumbai-Chennai route has moved forward another step. Doubling of the Washimbe-Bhalwani section between Daund and Kurduwadi was completed today.
After missing several targets over the years, Central Railway had set a deadline of March 2021 to complete work on its territory. However, this target too was missed.
With this, completion of a final stretch of the 28.5 -km long Bhigwan – Washimbe section remains. Officials say formation works on this section are complete and the remaining works are at an advanced stage.
section has several rock cuttings besides several bridges on the Bhima river and its backwaters.
Girdering of the four important bridges (Bhima bridge and the other three bridges on the Ujani dam backwaters)  are on, with works likely to be completed in the next four months. Route Electrification is also on between Bhigwan and Bhalwani with works being at several stages of completion.
Mumbai Chennai Route: Daund – Kurduwadi Doubling Status Update
As part of capacity enhancement works, Indian Railways has taken up doubling, tripling and quadrupling works on a war footing across India.
