The Karnataka High Court has directed the Union Ministry of Railways and other respondents to file in a months time their statement of objections to a petition filed seeking to reduce speed limit of trains passing through dense forest during the night time on the Hospet-Vasco and Londa-Miraj railway line, to avoid animals being hit by speeding trains.
A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj while hearing a petition filed by one Giridhar Kulkarni. The plea states that the two railway lines pass through dense forest areas of Dharwad, Belagavi and Haliyal territorial forest divisions including Dandeli Sanctuary. These forests are home to many endangered and endemic species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians like tiger, elephant,
gaur and other animals. Many of these animals are listed under schedule 1 of Wildlife Protection Act.
The plea also states that according to records collected by the petitioner, since 2014 an alarming number of accidents have occured on the two railway lines due to overspeeding trains resulting in the death of 60 various wild animals including 2 elephants, 49 indian gaur, 5 sambars, 1 sloth bear, 1 wild dog, 1 wild pig and a deer. Further it is said if the headcount of other reptiles and amphibians are accounted for the number reaches dismal proportions.
The petition refers to the two orders passed by the Supreme Court in WP no 107 of 2013 by which the apex court issued directions to the railways all over the country to reduce the speed limit of running trains that are passing through dense forest. In case a speed limit is not followed, appropriate action should be taken against the erring drivers and officials concerned.
It is also claimed that petitioner has made several representations to the authorities and even by Forest officials to the Railways for undertaking mitigating measures there has been no steps taken and deaths of wild animals continue to take place due to train accidents on the Hospet-Vasco and Londa-Miraj, railway lines.
The petitioner has also said that failure of Railways to take necessary steps to avoid accidents of wild animals with trains despite several requests made, is in violation of precautionary principle and the principles of integrated equity and sustainable development upheld by the Apex court in many cases. Further, the respondents failure to protect the wildlife is in clear violation of the fundamental duty of the respondent under Article 48A of the Constitution of India.
It is said that since the alternate railway line between Belagavi and Dharwad districts via Kittur has already been sanctioned by the state, it is important that steps are taken to establish the same at the earliest to render the Hospet-Vasco and Londa-Miraj railway lines redundant.
The plea prays for directions to the respondents to form a joint committee and conduct a joint inspection and prepare a mitigation plan in detail explaining the measures to be taken to prevent train accidents of wild animals. Direct the Ministry of Railways to consider and implement all suggestions given by the committee. Further to direct the Ministry of railways to strictly comply with orders of the Supreme Court by reducing the speed limit of running trains on the two railway lines while passing through dense forest. It is also prayed for directing the railways to take up mitigation measures like constructing underpass/overpass, putting proper signage boards to alert loco-pilots, and educating the loco-pilots regarding the necessity to reduce speed limit while passing through forest.

Looks like all Exp/SF trains will be diverted via new Kittur line, once completed. Londa line will be left with only trains to Goa.

These petitioners are a complete joke of human intelligence. Will reducing train speeds at only night solve the problems of animals being run over by trains ??
Instead of suggesting such stupid measures they should have suggested building some strong walls near the sensitive areas and construction of underpasses for animals crossings at regular intervals.
And why always target railways what about animals being ran over by road vehicles. I see cats dogs cows and snakes being ran over over by rash drivers everyday no one asks for speed limts there why
only Railways ??
Clearly these seem to be attempts by the lobby of bus operators who are literally scared looking the progress SWR is making in terms of doubling and electrification works.
I think it's time now Railways themselves take up the issue of animals being ran over and do something positive like construction of strong barriers around the tracks and underpasses for animals to cross safely. I think Railways should have developed such measures long back when such incidents were regularly reported in Assam.
Strong economic development with environment protection should be the way and not environment protection at the cost of halting development.

KOLHAPUR: The railway activists have demanded the resumption of train service between Kolhapur to Solapur, which was halted before the Covid outbreak due to the low footfall of passengers.
Currently, the train leaving from Solapur stops is Miraj for nearly four hours and returns to Solapur on the same day. The activists have written to the divisional manager’s office of Central Railway (CR) to extend the train up to Kolhapur to cater to the passengers travelling to destinations like Pandharpur and Solapur.
Many used to travel to Solapur by a late night train
from Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Terminus and after reaching Solapur, the passengers can easily get a bus to any place in Marathwada.
Shivnath Biyani, an activist of Railway Pravasi Sanghatana said, “Citing various reasons, the CR has cancelled various trains. We are demanding to resume services along the routes which have good footfall even on normal days. Thousands of pilgrims board Solapur bound train to reach Pandharpur twice a year. Many passengers found the train service convenient. We are unable to understand the logic to halt the train at Miraj and that too for over four hours. During this period, it can arrive in Kolhapur and go back to Miraj.”
He said 14 trains were running from Kolhapur station every day before the pandemic and now the services have been resumed to just five destinations from Kolhapur.
