While we admonish IR for many things, this project has been a gem in the history of IR. We should commend our engineers and to some extent our politicians for taking up such a challenging task. Also, doubly happy that our own Sharanappa has been the key guy in the conception and execution of this task. Kudos to him.

May be GOK and SWR can take his help and expedite the long pending Talaguppa-Honnavara; Hubballi-Ankola new lines and doubling of Hassana-Mangaluru line by going for tunnels rather than take circutious, dangerous routes to complete these projects

Until then, our babus will have 1001 reasons to impede the project.
What a fate??? This project started 20 years ago and still has not seen the light. By the time it is completed, the requirement would be 6 lines and not doubling
I remember reading somewhere that when the Mysore - Bangalore line was laid by the kings, way back in 1800's it took only 4 years to complete the entire stretch. I understand that there were no land acquisition hurdles to the kings but the ones that we have today are not so complex that the government cannot handle. But unlike in the past, we have to deal with corrupt and incompetent people because of which the project continues to drag.....

Bidar-Bangalore overnight train may soon be a reality

Quote:
“We urged the authorities to consider three options: extend the Bangalore-Kacheguda train to Bidar, change the timings of the Nanded-Bangalore Express to make it an overnight train, or introduce a new train,” said B.G. Shetkar, president of the Bidar Chamber of Commerce and Industry, who was part of a delegation. “Devi Prasad Pande, general manager of SCR, agreed to consider our request and discuss the issue at the highest levels in the Ministry,” he added.

Unmanned level-crossings being phased out to enhance safety

Quote:
The Mysore Division of South Western Railway has reduced the number of unmanned level-crossings (UMLC) in its jurisdiction in an exercise aimed at phasing them out to enhance public safety.

The division had 391 unmanned level-crossings in 2008-09

38 limited height subways to be constructed in 2013-14

Hope they start a new train rather than extending an existing one from say, Hyderabad. Hyderabad is a big city and the traffic to Bangalore from there, would also be in proportion. Therefore a train passing through it may result in the people of Bidar not getting enough seats which would lead to protests again, as was the case with Chalukya express at Hubli. In my opinion, it is better to wait until the Bidar - Gulbarga line is completed and schedule the train to run via Gulbarga and Raichur, rather than Hyderabad.

For now till the Bidar Gulbarga line is ready ( as it takes atleast 2 years) its better to extend the Kacheguda exp from SBC till Bidar... as people would start benefit of it. Later when the shiny new line is ready they can start new train on your proposed route. By this the people of Bidar would be double benefitted ...

And thanks to Basawaraj Patil Sedam, he is also one of great worker and non-corrupt and has been side lined by Yeddi group... Since then he left from active politics and is indulged in Community services...

Dear friend, apart from just acquiring land do you know that for any project to get an official nod, it requires clearence from around 16 sources. Environment, local panchayats, Mines and geology, District collector, forest, finance, central planning, pollution control, and so on and so forth. The delays happen not only due to corrupt politicians but also due to our administrative procedures which are still in the stone ages and are not updated periodically. Adding to this, the money minded NGO's, independent environmentalsts, local leaders, villagers and tribals etc., also contribute significantly to set back the squirrell foot efforts made by the Govt.

I can recall an incident where a road project was put on hold for 6 months due to a villager who demanded that the road works shall not be allowed until his 10th pass son gets a govt job.

Slight correction bro, it is not due to low aspirations but it is mainly due to comfortable and peaceful life, when compared to others .

In my opinion probably Kerala has the highest migrants, well I do not know any reason for it.

I guess it is due to population density. Kerala has 900+ / sq km , which is highest in India. Not all of them get opportunity within Kerala.

As you can possibly see, I have used the phrase "corrupt and incompetent people" and not politicians to connote that not only politicians but the officials involved are equal partners in crime.....You mention that the administrative procedures and clearances that are in the stone ages are required from 16 sources. Can you guide me as to who can possibly change them and why the exercise has'nt been carried out? My understanding is that it is the politicians who can change it and for reasons that are quite comprehensible to all, they have'nt been done. As for the 'money-minded NGO's' and others, I do not think that they are such complex issues to remain unresolvable by the governments, for nearly half a decade or even a full one, at that.

My apologies friend if my words had hurt your sentiment. I just wanted to say that projects also suffer due to irresponsible people and their -ve attitude towards development. I did not mean to say that you were wrong.

By the way, isn't it the same people who elect these corrupt politicians just for the sake of some saree/100rs/alcohol etc. Aren't they to be blamed at the very first place?

Oh my goodness I never took it that way. I am sorry if I sounded too harsh I would blame the entire system and not just people or politicians.... politicians are elected to bring about a change, which they don't. Why? because of money..... People despite participating in agitations and awareness programs pertaining to progress, turn weak before alcohol and the same money..... and who are these people? mostly the urban poor, the farmers etc. whom the politicians do not want to get educated / get better in any manner because they would be void of issues to "protest" if there is complete order, peace and harmony

Sorry for the digression. Let's the end the matter here....I am sorry once again if sounded harsh

Hubli shed hosts good number of high power diesel locos. It was done with some Rs 1000 crore because of the mining in and around Hubli and to haul trains at a higher speed between Pune and Renigunta because of the non electric traction. But, it proved to be a big waste of money given that Chennai-Mumbai trunk line will fully electrified in the coming future.

You'll see more number of WDG4s between Guntakal-H0spet-Hubli-Vasco section mainly used frieght (iron ore/cement/coal/steel transport).....approx 60-70 rakes/day on this route.
