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.

As envisioned in Union Budgets 2019 & 2020 Indian Railways is aiming to achieve the full electrification of its tracks in the next three to four years. o­n SWR aprox 802 Rkm of electrification has been targeted for completion in this financial year.
Last year 147 Route Km of Railway track of SWR has been electrified. The sections which were energised include Ballari – Rayadurga (53 Rkm), Toranagallu - Ranjithpura (23 Rkm) Baiyappanahalli – Anekal (37 RKm) & Toranagallu – Kariganur (34 RKms).
During the inspection, 3 power line crossings (2 between Talaku and Bommagundanakere and 1 between Bommagundanakere and Molakalmuru), 4 LC gates o­n the section and 4 stations (Talaku, Bommagundanakere, Molakalmuru & Rayadurga) were covered.
Over Head Equipment o­n the section i.e., foundations (1076 Nos.), mast erection & grouting (888 Nos.) portal/boom erection (18 Nos), bracket erection, wiring (104 shot) SED & TW checking were inspected. Short circuit test was also conducted o­n the section.
Shri B G Mallya, PCEE, Shri Ajay Kumar, PCSTE, Smt Aparna Garg, DRM/MYS, Shri Himanshu Sharma, GM/EL/RVNL and other Branch officers of Mysuru division accompanied CRS during the inspection. After completion of speed trial and inspection of the section and safety equipment at stations o­n this section, CRS will consider the proposal for Authorization of electrification of this line for passenger traffic.
Electrification will significantly improve mobility of trains o­n SWR and strengthen Rail network in Karnataka. In addition to reduction in pollution, energy efficiency of Railway will improve due to shift from fossil fuel to electricity and save substantial foreign exchange.

To expedite the execution of Railway projects in Karnataka, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has recently written to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to take appropriate action for easing various bottlenecks.
Land acquisition issues, as well as delay in obtaining clearances from the Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change (MoEF & CC), are cited as reasons holding up completion of various projects.
The letter states that new line, gauge conversion and doubling works are among infrastructure projects being undertaken along with transmission line works for electrification projects in the state.

17 different projects which have been delayed due to various issues, the letter states that Railways has taken up projects on cost sharing basis with government of Karnataka.
“The state government has to deposit its share of Rs 510.9 crore for 2018-2019 and further deposit their share for 2019-2020,” it said.
To take the matter forward, the General Manager of South Western Railway, Ajay Kumar Singh, had on July 9 written to Chief Secretary T M Vijaya Bhaskar asking for a meeting with Principal Secretaries of the state “for knowing the current status of the issues and to set the ball rolling for early clearances.”
In his response to the letter, the Chief Secretary told The New Indian Express, “I have asked my office to schedule an appointment within this month with Railway officials to discuss the issues.”
Of the 21 issues cited as major pending ones, four deal with clearances to be procured from the forest department while 17 of them require the state to acquire the required land.
Among the key projects are: Hotgi-Kudgi-Gadag doubling (only 14.65 acres of 123.83 acres handed over so far); Hospet-Hubballi-Londa-Tinaighat-Vasca Da Gama doubling (25.83 acres of land requiring forestry clearance in Uttara Karnataka district); Hubballi-Chikajajur (only 29 acres handed over out of 88.16 acres needed); Yelahanka-Penukonda doubling (only 2.35 acres handed over out of 4.61 acres).
Other projects awaiting sizeable portions of land are : Arsikere-Tumukuru doubling, Miraj-Londa doubling, Gadag-Wadi new line, Tumukuru-Chitradurga Davangere new line, Rayadurga-Tumukuru via Kalyandurga new line, Munirabad-Mehaboobnagar new line, Bagalkot-Kudachi new line, Hubballi-Ankola new line, Bangalore-Chamrajanagar/Satyamangalam new line, Chikmangalur-Sakleshpur new line, Whitefield-Kolar new line, Shivamogga-Harihar new line and Marikuppam-Kuppam new line.
The letter specifies expedition of these two electrification projects: Hospet-Bellary-Guntakal which is being taken up by RVNL where a transmission line running to a length of 3 km has to be put in place.
Out of total 16 tower locations, eight foundations and four tower erections have been completed, it says. The Chikjajur-Bellary electrification project awaits estimates to be sent by the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.

State says, center not releasing funds, counter part center says state is slow in clearing hurdles...politics and thats it. For any state to develop fast, center and state govts must be same party, else finger pointing continues and projects get stuck in queue for decades. Yet disappointed that Blore - Tumkur - Hubli - Miraj - Pune electrification is not mentioned
