BENGALURU: The South-Western Railway (SWR) on Sunday made it official that the track doubling work between Tumakuru and Gubbi (18 km) in South Karnataka has been commissioned recently. It consists of three stations (including 1 halt station).A media communication from SWR said that the doubling work is part of Arsikere-Tumakuru doubling project (96 km) which was sanctioned in 2015-16 for Rs 578 Cr. This project is fully funded by Ministry of Railways. This is the second completed section of aforesaid doubling project, other being Arsikere-Karadi which was completed in last year November. The entire project is scheduled for commissioning in 2020-21, Railway added.The doubling has been completed at a cost of Rs 108 Crores. The section has three stations viz., Heggere (Halt), Mallasandra and Gubbi stations. 28 minor bridges, 3 major bridges and 2 Road Under Bridges have been constructed as part of the doubling. One new Foot Over Bridge has
Please see the screenshot for Shortest route between SBC and Pune. It is via Gtl-SUR. Please dont distort facts to support your argument.
No no, the train should be introduced (both ways) in such a way that, it should depart Yesvantpur between 11am to 1pm, and it should reach Mumbai next day morning between 6-8. Stoppage should be only main junctions. DMM-GTL-KLBG-SUR-PUNE. This stations have high response to all mumbai trains. Firstly, it should be introduced bi-weekly. After the response, in 3months, it should be made daily. Similar to Howrah duranto.
Route via Hubballi can become shortest, after completion of new Tumakuru-Davanagere line. We have to wait till that time.
No .It will be slightly longer than existing GTL-SUR Route. Also It will be slow due to lot of curves and terrain.
Ideally route via Gtl-Klbg will be faster and quick. Hope railways consider this while introducing, to start with they can introduce a bi-weekly via this route and later on one more via Ubl can be introduced.
With the symbolic running of two trains on two railway tracks, 18-km of doubling line between Tumukuru and Gubbi, which falls under the Bangalore Railway Division, was commissioned on Wednesday.
This will pave way for faster running of trains between Bengaluru and Hubballi when the entire stretch is doubled. According to Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, K C Swami, “This is the second part of the 96-km doubling project between Tumukuru and Arasikere. The first doubling stretch of 36km was commissioned between Arasikere and Karadi on November 29, 2018. We expect the entire doubling on the line to be ready within two years,” he said.
I guessed those might be shunters but was not sure. Then shunters might be enough as they don't move heavy load inside JSW plant. I think JSW doesn't require regular locos like WDGs for inside plant operations
WDS6 is also shunting loco
Yes WDS6 is a shunting loco I mean except Those WDS6 shunters remaining those BHEL shunters are small..........
I also guessed the same. Then I also imagined that for shunting purpose WDG4 will not require. Then I again imagined that suppose BAY-UBL and TNGL-RNJP line gets electrified. Then to bring freight from JSW e loco will be not possible so to bring and stationing at Ballari or Tornagallu Jn those WDG4 may require so that the remaining would haul by e loco.
⏺️Other industries have electric line as their siding like /blog/post/4240510 and /blog/post/4239408
⏺️Lines which bring raw material and send finished product might get electrified as Toranagallu - Ranajitpura section is being electrified. You are thinking of only Ballari - Toranagallu main line. Think on other side of Toranagallu - Ranajitpura line. If Iron ore comes from Donimalai (loaded at Ranajitpura station) then where loco change must happen from electric to diesel? Then loco change can't happen in Toranagallu - Ranajitpura section
⏺️Even if JSW sidings will not get electrified soon,
