In what will help ease train operations on the Bengaluru-Guntakal section, the double line between Yelahanka and Makalidurga is nearing commissioning with the safety authorities set to inspect the second line on the Yelahanka-Makalidurga section by the end of week. 
The comissioner of railway safety will inspect the 38.37-km electrified section on Thursday and Friday, after which clearances will be given for commissioning the line, if all safety measures are found satisfactory. 
At present, the single line between Yelahanka and Makalidurga has constrained the train operations with many trains made to wait at

Yeshwantpur, Baiyappanhaalli and Channasandra. Once commissioned, the section will reduce the congestion between Bengaluru and Doddaballapur. 
Urban transport activist Sanjeev Dyamannavar said that besides the double line, the commissioning of the inter block signalling system at Thanisandra and the recently completed underpass near Jakkur would help the railways in smooth operation of trains. 
More space
"Yelahanka is a major junction connecting Yeshwantpur, Channasandra, Devanahalli and Doddaballapur. The electrified line will open up space to run for more trains towards Guntakal and northern parts of the state as well as the country," he said. 
Dyamannavar noted that the full potential of the project can be realised after the completion of doubling of Baiyappanahalli-Hosur and Yeshwantpur-Channasandra lines.

The Railway Board slashed infrastructure targets for South Western Railway (SWR) Zone, proposed last month by more than 50 per cent employees after top officials made it clear that the targets proposed were unrealistic to meet.The zone has now been mandated with laying 189 km of doubling lines and 49 km of new lines for the present fiscal. 
The new lines include 19 km of railway lines being laid at the Baiyappanahalli coaching terminal. The board, in a marathon meeting on April 17, chaired by the Railway Minister and top Board officials, proposed 349 km of doubling lines and 107 km of new lines for SWR. Doubling of tracks will ensure more trains will run. More importantly, punctuality of the existing trains

will improve as in the case of single lines. Trains need to wait at crossing lines for approaching trains to pass through.
Speaking to The New Indian Express, Chief Administration Officer (Constructions) of SWR KC Swami said, “We made it clear that the targets proposed for the zone earlier are highly unrealistic and a reasonable target is required. The board has considered our request and has set us new targets recently.”Asked about the reasons why it was impossible to ramp up its doubling work, Swami said, “If it is just the laying of tracks, it is possible. Doubling also involves works like non-interlocking, placing of sleepers and welding of rail which need to be carried out only by specialised RDSO authorised centres. Acquiring land for laying the lines is a time-consuming process.”  
New lines will come up in the following sections- 28 km of tracks along the Gangavathi-Karatagi section of Ginigera-Raichur new line; 12 km of new line in Phase-I of Baiyappanahalli coaching terminal and 9 km in its Phase-II.
The new doubling sections proposed are: Lachyan-Hotgi (33 km); Doddaballapura-Makalidurga (15 km), Harihar-Devargudda (31 km) and Karadi-Ammasandra (17 km). In addition to it, the sections to be carried over from the previous year are: Tumakuru-Gubbi (18 km); Davangere-Harihar (13 km); Ghataprabha-Chikkodi (15 km); Mulvad-Jammal (13 km); Yelahanka-Doddaballapura (21 km), Tolahunase-Davangere (10 km).   The targets set for its commercial earnings and passenger occupancy are nominal, another top official said.
