Beyond the Halt Station, several critical infrastructure upgrades should be taken up to maximise the benefits of the airport rail link. Here’s a look at the projects that require urgent attention:
Upgrade Doddajala to Crossing Station
Currently, the 24-km route from Yelahanka to Devanahalli is single track, with three stations on the way. However, all the three, Bettahalasur, Doddajala and the new Airport Station, are halt stations. This implies that when a train is on this track, no other train can get on to the 24-km stretch.
Under
...
more...
this constraint, only one train can be operated every 30 minutes. To boost the frequency of trains, Doddajala will have to be upgraded to a crossing station since it is almost at the centre of the 24-km line. The estimated cost for this project is about Rs 10 crore.
Road access to Halt Station
The Halt Station has no proper road access from the National Highway, which is less than 500m away. Ensuring two-way access is critical for people from surrounding areas to take the train.
Yelahanka – Devanahalli electrification
Already approved, this electrification project will have to be implemented quickly, so that MEMU trains from surrounding towns can reach Devanahalli directly. For instance, an electrified line will help a train from Mysuru reach the Halt Station within three hours.

This is another good point. Make DHL or CBP as another satellite terminal and extend few trains to DHL/CBP. Ex:- 16518/Kannur - KSR Bengaluru Express [via Mysuru] extend upto CBP, with additional halts at Ynk, Kiah, Dhl.

Mysore side train can be extended with few changes in TT. But expecting SUR SF and Gomateshwara are not going to happen. In fact, it would create more issues as people want these trains to touch SBC.

If long distance trains are going to get extended, I would say extend BAND ERS SF (thrice a week). Instead of terminating at BAND, it can go from KJM to YNK to DHL. Another option would be Salem YPR passenger with loco reversal at BYPL (change over from Hosur line to Yelahanka line). Slowly YNK

BENGALURU: It’s no fantasy. It is possible to travel from Yeshwantpur to Kempegowda International Airport (KIA), a distance of around 35km, in less than an hour, spending a mere Rs 30. First a perspective: A taxi ride from Yeshwantpur to KIA costs about ₹800 and BMTC’s Vayu Vajra fare is ₹230 (excluding GST). In comparison, suburban train fare from Yeshwantpur to Doddajala station, located about 9km away from the airport, costs a mere ₹10.In a bid to find an efficient alternative to exorbitant airport taxis, TOI conducted an experiment primarily using suburban train services. This plan works best if one is travelling light.On Monday last week, a TOI reporter boarded the Yeshwantpur-Devanahalli DEMU passenger train (No 06595) which was scheduled to leave Yeswanthpur station at 10:35am. The departure was delayed by 10 minutes. On a weekday morning, when roads a chock-a-block with traffic, the train was empty, thanks to a combination...

of a lack of awareness and poor frequency of service. The reporter had an entire compartment to himself.The 25km journey took 40 minutes, but it was a pleasant departure from a noisy road ride. The train passes through Lottegollahalli, Kodigehalli, Yelahanka, Bettahalsoor and Doddajala stations and passengers are treated to sights of vast green fields, the restored freshwater Puttenahalli Lake near Yelahanka and breaths of fresh air. The train finally reached Doddajala at 11:35am.At Doddajala, it’s easy to flag down an empty private cab headed to the airport. Most drivers are glad to make a few extra bucks, charging airport-bound passengers about ₹20 per seat (unofficial shared services). Of course, this is on the condition of minimum baggage. There are no feeder bus services from Doddajala station and Ola and Uber shared services charge about ₹200 for the same 9km, 15-minute journey. The cab reached KIA at around 11:50am.

In current conditions, you will miss the flight if you opt for this mode. Instead of spending crores for a new metro line, why can't this line be developed as a proper alternative?

For trying it first time, we can test this in reverse direction. Airport to DJL station, we have three DEMU 8:35, 13:20 and 16:35 to Bengaluru/Ypr. If this works then vice verse can also be tried

A rail link to the airport may soon see light of the day. The suburban rail project to connect Yeshwantpur Railway Station with Kempegowda International Airport is on track, with the Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES) set to submit its feasibility report to the state government soon.
Confirming this, Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain told Express that Yeshwantpur will have an elevated platform to decongest the station for the running of trains. “The existing facility will be modified to run the trains. RITES has also identified a place close to KIA compound for the station,” he said.
Jain

added that Yeshwantpur is one among the few stretches identified by the government to introduce suburban rails. “We initially wanted the link from City railway station to Airport. But since the station is very congested, we proposed Yeshwantpur or Yelahanka.
Experts say there is no scope for additional space for platform or line at Yeshwantpur. So, we are looking at the possibility of an elevated platform. Also, we want double, electrified lines to Doddaballapur from here. At present, it is only a single line,’’ Jain said.
Jain said their priority is Yeshwantpur station because it has Metro connectivity. “People commuting in Metro can board suburban trains to KIA from the adjacent Yeshwantpur railway station,’’ he said. When asked about the status, he said it is on track. “We are hoping to take it forward at the earliest,’’ he said.
The funding of the project will be as per the new suburban railway policy, where State and the Central government will share the cost, along with other financial aids. Devanahalli taluk has more than two railway stations, but none of the passenger trains, as of now, stop here. Experts say that Yerthiganahalli station (6kms from KIA) and Trumpet station (3kms from KIA) can be ideal stoppage for the suburban line, for now. The rail connection is expected to lessen the traffic on Ballari Road.
The suburban rail project to connect Yeshwantpur Railway Station with Kempegowda International Airport is on track, with the Rail India Technical and Economic Service set to submit its feasibility report to the state government soon.Prakash Mandoth, member of the zonal railway users’ consultative committee, said, “Ideally, rail connectivity to airport should be from the City central railway station. In 2016, RITES authorities had visited Bengaluru and conducted preliminary inspection. They had met the authorities from South Western Railway and KIA. In fact, they had even identified the land, adjacent to KIA, for the station.”
“We will need inter-model connectivity to airport. Metro will take at least another four years to connect Airport from the city. But with the existing facility, suburban rail connectivity can be made possible within eight to nine months,” he said.He added that not just air-travellers, suburban rail can benefit others, especially the employees working with various airways. “Suburban train can be of a great help to their commuting. Also, air-cargo service can be managed effectively using suburban trains,’’ Mandoth said.

It’s time for a halli-day
Reaching Kempegowda International Airport from any part of the city is easier said than done. But if the powers-that-be apply a little thought, you could end up with a cost-and-time saver in the form of a suburban railway link to KIA. Mirror brings you the finer aspects of what it means to journey right into Bengaluru’s northern frontiers
