HUBBALLI: Trains blowing their horns at night have become a nightmare for residents who stay adjacent to the track on the 20km stretch between Hubballi and Dharwad. They complain of disturbed sleep and some miscreants allegedly used the horn noise to pull off a recent robbery and murder of a senior citizen in Raj Nagar.The stretch involves major hospitals like KIMS, SDM and residential areas like Deshpande Nagar, Keshwapur, Ashok Nagar, Raj Nagar, Shirdi Nagar, Unkal, Om Nagar, Sai Nagar, Amargol, Navanagar, Rayapur, Sattur, Navalur, Tejaswi Nagar and adjacent areas.Dentist Dr Ramesh Nadiger, a resident of Raj Nagar, said blowing of horns was stepped up three years ago after four persons and students were run over by speeding trains between Unkal and Hubballi stations. “When loco pilots blow the train horn even during the day, we can’t speak to the person sitting with us. While it’s at least acceptable during the...
day, why should they blow it for longer periods at night? Even goods trains, which move slowly, blow their horn repeatedly. The railways should take the plight of residents into consideration,” he said.Former MLA Veerabhadrappa Halaharavi, who stays at Deshpande Nagar and just a few feet from the track, said, “When trains stop at the outer signal, loco pilots start blowing the horn. They should use walkie-talkies to communicate their colleagues. Blowing the horn while resuming the journey and to alert passengers and passersby is acceptable,” he said.Manoj Hangal, another resident of Deshpande Nagar, said though a wall has been constructed along the track near his area to prevent pedestrians from walking on it, blowing of horns has not reduced. Dilip Kumar Sharma, a medical equipment businessman, said he often arrives by the Nizamuddin Express from Delhi. “The train stops for over 30 minutes at Unkal station early in the morning. Many loco pilots blow the horn unnecessarily,” he said.‘Alerting road users’* When a train recently passed by Raj Nagar between 3am and 3.30am, robbers broke the window of the house of a senior citizen and no one heard the sound of glass breaking. Miscreants often take due advantage of trains’ horn to commit crimes.Jagadish Hanchinal | police inspector, Ashok Nagar station, Hubballi* Only running trains blow the horn to alert road users at level crossings. Loco pilots are being counselled to keep the noise in residential areas to the bare minimum required.E Vijaya | deputy general manager, SWR, Hubballi

Only solution seems for this is build a boundary wall/fence to prevent trespassers. That will also prevent encroachments on railways' land.

If 1 or 2 LPs does this, you can consider as not necessary. But if all LPs does, then certainly it's a rule by railways. You cant complain to the safety standards adopted by IR.

HUBBALLI: The Sainagar Railway Level Crossing (LC) gate on Hebballi Road has become a curse for road commuters travelling to and from Shivalli and Hebballi villages. This gate is shut around 30 times a day as 12 daily and weekly trains run between Hubballi and Dharwad.Following gate closure, the line of waiting vehicles extends for about a kilometre and often spending over 30 to 60 minutes.Tippanna Majjagi, a social worker in Unkal, said that earlier, the LC gate towards JK School was a big hurdle. “Now, this gate, which is the access point to Shivalli and Hebballi, has become a hurdle for movement of vehicles. We have requested MP Pralhad Joshi to help in this issue and he has assured us that he’d get sanction for the Railway Under Bridge for this gate and another one at Maradagi Road,” he added.A conductor of a Hubballi-Hebballi bus said each schedule operates by...
this gate for 12 single trips between Hubballi and Hebballi. “In these trips, we have to stop at the gate at least 8 times a day. Sometimes, our waiting time extends up to an hour, when two trains pass in both directions,” he added.Madiwalappa Karkikatti, a farmer in Hebballi, said residents of Hebballi reach Hubballi within 30 minutes by bus. “But often, we spend 20-30 minutes at the Sainagar Gate. The authorities concerned should take steps to construct an overbridge or under-bridge,” he said..Muttu Patil, chairman, Jai Hanuman Education Society, Unkal, said many educational institutions have come up on the Hebballi Road and vehicles ferrying students wait there to make way for trains. “The railways should take note of this issue and start construction of a bridge there,” he said.Official speakE Vijaya, deputy general manager, South Western Railway, Hubballi, said the railways is examining a proposal for construction of a bridge at this gate. “Once our work is sanctioned, we’ll get in touch with HDMC,” she added.SC Bevur, public relations officer, HDMC, said the issue was taken up with railways officials recently. “As I took charge recently, I’m not aware about the current status of the issue,” he added.

ಹುಬ್ಬಳ್ಳಿ: ಯಶವಂತಪುರದಿಂದ ಮುಂಬೈನ ದಾದರ್‌ಗೆ ಹೊರಟ್ಟಿದ್ದ ‘ಚಾಲುಕ್ಯ ಎಕ್ಸ್‌ಪ್ರೆಸ್‌’ ರೈಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿನ ಉಣಕಲ್ ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದ ಬಳಿ ಹಳಿತಪ್ಪಿದ ಘಟನೆ ಸೋಮವಾರ ನಡೆದಿದೆ.
ಮಧ್ಯಾಹ್ನ 3.30ರ ಸುಮಾರಿಗೆ ಈ ಅವಘಡ ಸಂಭವಿಸಿದ್ದು, ರೈಲಿನ ಎಂಜಿನ್‌ ಹಾಗೂ ಮೂರು ಬೋಗಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಹಾನಿಯಾಗಿದೆ.
ತಪ್ಪು ಸಿಗ್ನಲಿಂಗ್‌ ದುರಂತಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣ ಎನ್ನಲಾಗಿದ್ದು, ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆಯ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ಯಾವುದೇ ಹೇಳಿಕೆಗಳನ್ನು ನೀಡಿಲ್ಲ.
ಪರ್ಯಾಯ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಇಲ್ಲ: ರೈಲು ಹಳಿತಪ್ಪಿದ್ದರಿಂದ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ಪರ್ಯಾಯ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯನ್ನು ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆ ಮಾಡಿಲ್ಲ. ಇದರಿಂದ ದೂರದ ಊರುಗಳಿಗೆ ತೆರಳಬೇಕಿರುವ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ತೊಂದರೆಯಾಗಿದೆ.
ಅನಾಹುತ: ಘಟನಾ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಎದುರಿನಿಂದ ಹರಿಪ್ರಿಯಾ ಎಕ್ಸ್‌ಪ್ರೆಸ್‌ ರೈಲು ಬರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಅದು ಕೂಡ ಚಾಲುಕ್ಯ ಎಕ್ಸ್‌ಪ್ರೆಸ್‌ ರೈಲು ಬರುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ಹಳಿಗೆ ಬಂದು ಸೇರಬೇಕಿತ್ತು. ಆದರೆ, ಸಮಯಪ್ರಜ್ಞೆಯಿಂದ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಅನಾಹುತ ತಪ್ಪಿದೆ.
