Travelling by Bengaluru-bound Tipu Express from Mysuru has become a nightmare for hundreds of commuters all because of the failure of the train to adhere to the timings. As a result, many people have been missing the train for the onward journey to Chennai and other places after arriving here from Mysuru.
Tipu Express usually departs from Mysuru at 11:30 am and reaches Kengeri at around 1:15 pm. But to cover the 12 km distance from Kengeri to Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Station (KSR Station in Majestic), the train takes at least an hour! In fact, the superfast express train covers the 40 km distance from Mandya within 35 minutes but takes at least one hour to reach the KSR station in Bengaluru.
Due to Siddhaganga Malgudi gets delayed near ypr so better to divert it via Bnc
Six days back i travelled in 12613 it departed MYS at 11 30 reached KGI around 13 10 and finally reached SBC at 14 25
is there any place to construct new pfs@sbc for permanent solution
Only solution it to remove the pitlines and shift it to binny mill land if this happens then around extra 4-5 pfs can be constructed on sbc otherwise there is no space to lay even a single track and if this not happens then pf 8 to 10 must be linked to bnc side and pf 1 to 7 must be linked to ypr side and pf 1 to 4 must be connected to kgi side
The extension of 16023 malgudi express till yelhanka is the reason behind this. To decongest at Yesvantpur, this step has been taken. Solution for all this problem is, malgudi express should get cancel from YNK to YPR and it should get the older time table. Leaving ypr at 1.15, reaching sbc at 1.25 n departing sbc at 1.30 or 1.35. Siddhaganga express should leave at 1 from pf-9, then this malgudi can get in to pf-9 at 1.25, and further tippu express 12613 can enter pf-9 by 1.45 or 1.50. Else malgudi express should be diverted by cantonment. Anyhow, proper maintenance can solve all the problems. Care should be taken.
The presently running Tipu Express and Chamundi Express trains’ coach composition consists of just a single AC coach (that is, AC Chair Car Coach- C1) apart from general sitting coaches. It is ironical to note that no effort is yet made by the authorities concerned to augment an additional air conditioned chair coaches in these two popular trains running between Bengaluru and Mysuru, as the trains have been operating since long on this route.
The non-availability of an additional AC coach is thus highly causing inconvenience to many passengers during the day time. At times owing to popular demand and the need to travel by AC coaches, the waitlist numbers surges resulting only in the need for an extra coach augmentation.
Much need step. Even in Train no.17325/17326 vishwamanava express, there is no single AC coach. People prefer travelling in this train from KSR Bengaluru, as it reaches soon to Mysuru.
