The train first will go to Hubballi after making 35 to 38-hour journey via  Bhusaval, Miraj and  Belagavi. After dropping passengers of that region, it will go to Gulbarga via Gadag and Vijayapura after 8 to 10-hour journey.  After dropping passengers at Gulbarga, it will go to Bengaluru via Guntakal after around 12-hour journey.
Shramik Special is running at Rajdhani Express speed since tracks are empty due to suspension of regular passenger trains, officials said still the train takes a long time as it has to criss-cross several places.

The Karnataka Government already announced that it will bear the ticket expenditure of the passengers. The railways made onboard food and drinking water free of cost.
Though 1200 people stranded in Haryana, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh, have registered in Sevasindu website, only 960 people have turned up.
Officials in Karnataka Bhavan in co-ordination with Delhi government for  logistics for ferrying these stranded people.
Upon reaching their respective destination, an official in Karnataka will make arrangements for their institutional quarantine or home quarantine.

The MoEF has cleared the proposal by the railways to acquire 40 acres of forest land  for construction of new line between Gadag and Wadi.
Seven years after the project was sanctioned by the Railway Board, construction of the 257 km railway line has remained a big challenge due to multiple hurdles. The ambitious project is expected to provide public transport connecting four districts to the financial nerve centre of northKarnataka.
In its recent meeting, the regional empowered committee of Bengaluru has approved the proposal by the South Western Railways, noting that the

forest land falls in the arid zone of Karnataka with a moderate canopy density (0.1). In return, the railways has been told to submit a plan for tree planting in the surroundings of the proposed railway station in the forest area and along the railway line in lie of the trees felled. Additionally, compensatory afforestation has to be carried out in degraded forest, it said.
The new line, estimated to cost Rs 1922 crore, was sanctioned in 2014-15. It will connect four districts - Koppal, Raichur, Yadgir and Kalaburagi. The line involves construction of Talkal, situated 39 km from Gadag, to Wadi and passes through Yelburga, Kushtagi, Mudgal, Lingasgur, Sholapur and Shahpur.
A senior official in the SWR said the green signal for forest land acquisition has come as a major relief but said more problems have come up in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. “Land acquisition is the major problem. The chief secretary has been taking up the issue with the deputy commissioners in almost every meeting. We are still finding it difficult to execute first two phases of the project,” the senior official said.
The Phase 1 of the project involves 57 km line from Koppal while the 47-km Phase 2 stretch starts from the other end. Compensation is yet to be given to farmers in some parts, which had made the work challenging. “If the government provides land, we could have completed the project in two years. We don’t know how the financial crisis brought by Covid-19 will affect the projects,” another official said.

BENGALURU: A 680m railway bridge standing 30m above the Bhima river will soon connect Vijayapura and Sholapur.

It will be inspected by the commissioner of railway safety on March 20-21 in connection with its commissioning.SWR chief engineer (constructions) Lakshman Singh told TNIE that the existing bridge at the spot is not able to handle high axle loads.With two power plants located in Kudgi, both Railways and NTPC will benefit from the new bridge, Singh said.

speed restrictions are imposed on trains passing through the stretch as the bridge cannot bear the heavy load carried by wagons, SWR chief administrative officer K C Swami said.“The speed restrictions ranging between 10 kmph and 20kmph imposed on trains through this stretch recently will be lifted when the new bridge is commissioned. Goods traffic can pick up pace now,” he said. “The bridge has open web with girders around it, which means that when a train passes by, it is surrounded by structures,” he explained.
The project is divided into two bridges. The completed one is likely to be commissioned by March-end and the second one within three months,” Swami said.Elaborating on the construction, Singh said that the bridge roughly rises to a height of 10 storeys above the river bed. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of structural steel and nearly 2 lakh high strength friction grip bolts are utilised in the construction. “The bridge has 14 spans, each measuring about 50 metres. The bolts have been used to connect the main structural members of the girder,” he said.
