Agree Tejas, K J George is talking crap about modifying suburban rail that stops outside the city. If suburban rail has to succeed, it must run across the city, else there won't be anyone in them & then, they will discontinue like they keep doing.

He seems to be eyeing the mere 1,000 crore cost (as against Rs 9,000 crore), but Indian Railways will not operate trains that lose money - they are already in neck deep trouble.

A modified suburban rail outside the city that would augment the Metro rail network has been proposed by Bengaluru Development Minister K J George.

Speaking at an interactive session on ‘Transportation Challenges in Bangalore’, George said a review of the suburban rail project was held with Railway and Metro officials yesterday. “The proposal right now is to connect Tumakuru to Yeshwantpur, Whitefield to Byappanahalli and Mandya to Kengeri,” he said.

This would work out to Rs 1,000 crore and can be considered Phase-I of Suburban Rail.” The originally proposed suburban rail project worked out to Rs 9,000 crore, he said.

Yeshwantpur and Byappanahalli are presently covered by Metro Phase-I while Kengeri will be covered under Metro Phase-II.

The Railway Ministry has agreed to fund 50 per cent of the Rs 1,000-crore project while the state would fund 50 per cent of the cost, he added.

Later, Union Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar, said, “The Suburban Rail Project for the city has been spoken about since 1996. I am embarrassed to even speak about it. Many budgets have been passed after that.”

Speaking of a recent discussion with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu about the project, the Minister said, “Bengaluru will get its suburban rail this time in the budget. We are going to have it.”

Ananth Kumar said that five radial train routes connect Bengaluru to Tumakuru, Yelahanka, Bangarpet, Hosur and Mandya. “They can be electrified and automatic signalling provided with platforms at various distances. We can have a Mumbai-like local rail service for Bengaluru.” According to officials, except Hosur, all the points have a double line while Hosur and Tumakuru do not have any electrification.

good idea to keep commuter rail outside city limits.. anyway metro will extend further in those lines too.. thats saving taxpayer money too

Recently news on connectivity to airport came in, govt does not want high speed rail for airport and wants other modes of connectivity. what my point is why cant we take an example rom Kolkata suburban network.

Kolkata Circular Railway, locally known as "Chakra Rail", is a railway loop line operated by the Eastern Railway zone of Indian Railways, encircling the entire city of Kolkata. A 3.7 km-long line connecting Dum Dum Cantonment to the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport became the first such suburban railway line in India which served an airport, and allowed extended Circular Railway operations from Dum Dum Junction.

Now we want same kind of connectivity , as we already have yelahanka devanahalli railway track running right under the loop connecting the airport from hyderabad highway. if this line is electrified and extended till airport building , we will have a great connectivity to airport.

This does not need high investment as land can be acquired by KIAB. All is needed a will to do it.

If i remember automatic signalling between Bangalore city to whitefield was approved long back but never saw the daylight of it. We could have trains leaving within a gap of 3 minutes from Blore city ( Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna' railway station ) to Blore Cantt rather than it being 10 minutes for now as its a block section. This never needed land for quadrupling or huge amount of money either. But than even today trains have to wait for good time at Cantt for the next train to reach Byappanhalli. At times if its a passenger train or DEMU it has to stop at Blore EAST too , which again makes the up and down trains to wait at both Cantt and Byappanhalli.

ಹುಬ್ಬಳ್ಳಿ ರೈಲು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಟ್ಟಡ ಕುಸಿತ; ನಾಲ್ವರ ದುರ್ಮರಣ

ಹುಬ್ಬಳ್ಳಿ: ನಗರದ ಕೇಂದ್ರೀಯ ರೈಲು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಮಗ್ರಿಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂಗ್ರಹಿಸುವ ಕಟ್ಟಡ ಕುಸಿದು ಬಿದ್ದಿದ್ದು, ಅವಶೇಷಗಳಡಿ 6 ಜನ ಸಿಲುಕಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಸುಮಾರು 50 ವರ್ಷಕ್ಕೂ ಹಳೆಯ ಕಟ್ಟಡವಾಗಿದ್ದು, ದುರಸ್ಥಿ ಕಾರ್ಯ ಸಾಗುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಈ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವಘಡ ಸಂಭವಿಸಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಸ್ಥಳೀಯರು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಕಟ್ಟಡ ತೆರವು ಗೊಳಿಸುವಂತೆ ಈ ಹಿಂದೆಯೇ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ಆದೇಶಿಸಿದ್ದರು, ಆದರೆ ರೈಲ್ವೇ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳ ಬೇಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಯಿಂದ ಅಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಕಾರ್ಯನಿರ್ವಹಣೆ ಮಾಡಲಾಗುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.

ಇಂದು ಮಧ್ಯಾಹ್ನ 2.30ರ ವೇಳೆಗೆ ಹಳೆಯ ಕಟ್ಟಡದ ಗೋಡೆ ಒಡೆಯುವ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಟ್ಟಡವು ಕುಸಿದು ಬಿದ್ದಿದ್ದು, ಪರಿಣಾಮ ಮೂವರು ಮಹಿಳಾ ರೈಲ್ವೇ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿ ಹಾಗು ಮೂರು ಜನ ಪಾರ್ಸೆಲ್ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿಗಳು ಸಿಲುಕಿದ್ದು, ಕಾರ್ಮಿಕ ರೆಹಮಾನ್ ಎಂಬಾತನನ್ನು ರಕ್ಷಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಪೊಲೀಸರು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಅಗ್ನಿ ಶಾಮಕ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿ ಸ್ಥಳಕ್ಕೆ ಭೇಟಿ ನೀಡಿ ಅವಶೇಷಗಳ ಅಡಿ ಸಿಲುಕಿದವರ ರಕ್ಷಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ತೊಡಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಇತ್ತೀಚಿನ ಮಾಹಿತಿ:

ಕಟ್ಟಡದಡಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿಲುಕಿದ್ದ ಏಳು ಮಂದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ನಾಲ್ವರು ಸಾವನ್ನಪ್ಪಿದ್ದಾರೆ, ಹಾಗೂ 11ಕ್ಕೂ ಅಧಿಕ ಮಂದಿ ಗಾಯಗೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಎಂದು ಇತ್ತೀಚಿನ ಮಾಹಿತಿಯಿಂದ ತಿಳಿದು ಬಂದಿದೆ.

ಕುಸಿದು ಬಿದ್ದ ಕಟ್ಟಡದ ಅವಶೇಷಗಳಡಿ ಇನ್ನೂ ಮೂವರು ಸಿಲುಕಿದ್ದು ವಿಪತ್ತು ನಿರ್ವಹಣಾ ತಂಡದಿಂದ ರಕ್ಷಣಾ ಕಾರ್ಯ ಮುಂದುವರಿದಿದೆ.

OMG!! Feel so sad. Our hearts go out to the kith and kin of the people who died.

SWR is so lethargic. The officials concerned should be dismissed

Railway gets new loco simulator

JODHPUR, Feb. 9 -- An advanced locomotive simulator with advanced features was inaugurated at the North Western Railway's training centre at Bhagat ki Kothi on Monday.

Bought from Australia at a cost of ' 8 crore, the simulator is way ahead of the previous simulator set up at Hubli, Karnataka in 2005.

Eleven such simulators will be set up at various railway training centres across the country. A special feature of the simulator is that it allows instructor to watch the loco pilot 'drive' a locomotive. It also has an observer station for six trainees.

The simulator's launch is seen as a big step towards the modernisation of loco pilot training. This type of facility was earlier available only for training in air force and army, railway of...

Diesel Loco Shed (DLS) Hubli which is country's only such facility where the WDG Locomotives are maintained has training centre with simulators since 2005.

Indian Railways to unveil 200 kmph coaches with sliding doors

Gearing up to run trains at higher speed, railways will this month unveil modern coaches equipped with automatic sliding doors and electro-pneumatically assisted brake system to assist in operating at 200 kmph speed.

Manufactured at the Rail Coach Factory (RCF) in Kapurthala, the first consignment of four high speed coaches - two AC chair cars and two Executive Class - are being readied to travel to the capital before March, said a senior Railway Ministry official.

Each coach is estimated to cost about Rs 3.25 cr as against the Rs 2.5 cr for the normal coach.

The official said the coaches are equipped with latest technology like stainless steel brake disc, sintered pads and electro-pneumatically assisted brake system to run at a higher speed.

Besides, the entrance will have automatically sliding doors like Metro coaches and better dust, sound and heat insulation system.

He said the third major modification in these coaches involves improved and wider inter-car vestibule area between the coaches, which will help reduce dirt and water ingress besides reducing noise level.

A total of 20 coaches will be manufactured at RCF out of which four are almost ready and the rest will be delivered in June this year as announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in his last budget.

The new initiative involves manufacturing a rake of 20 coaches which comprises 14 AC chair cars, 3 Executive Chair cars and 3 Power cars.

Other features which are incorporated in these 200 kmph coaches include improved passenger safety and comfort. The coaches will have aesthetically pleasant interiors with spacious and ergonomically designed seats.

There will be provision of personal infotainment system in coaches also.

Each coach will emphasize on safety, and will have fire retardant furnishing besides fire and smoke detection alarms.

The lavatories of these coaches will have redesigned interior and equipped with vacuum evacuation assisted toilets.

The plush interiors will have touchless fittings in taps, hand dryers and soap dispensers besides marble finish and anti graffiti coating on walls.

least railways can do is put automatic signals on already electrified sections and start MEMU trains as EMU trains need raising of platforms. Infact bangalore city - Bangarpet can even get EMU trains as its already has infrastructure in place.

Fund allocation in railway budget sought for completing pending projects in Shivamogga

Members of the Shivamogga Nagarika Hitarakshana Vedikegala Okkoota staged a protest on the premises of Vidya Nagar suburban railway station here on Wednesday demanding allocation of funds in the 2016-17 railway budget for completing the pending railway projects in the district and upgrading amenities for passengers at the Vidya Nagar suburban railway station.
Addressing the protest meet, K.V. Vasanth Kumar, secretary of the okkoota said that the technical survey on Shivamogga-Harihar railway line had been completed and administrative approval had also been given for the project.
The Ministry of Railways should set aside funds for the work in the budget of 2016-17. Commissioning of this project would provide easy access to people of Malnad region to north Karnataka and Mumbai. Similarly, funds should be earmarked for the work on linking Talaguppa with Konkan railway, he said.
When the gates were closed at the railway level-crossing along the National Highway 13, near Thunga bridge, the vehicular movement along the stretch was getting paralysed. It was essential to construct an underpass there to ensure hassle-free vehicular movement along the stretch.
There was a need to introduce a direct train service between Shivamogga and Chennai and Tirupati. An additional express train should be introduced between Shivamogga and Bengaluru and a direct train service between Shivamogga and Mysuru during night, he said.
Mr. Kumar expressed displeasure over the alleged poor maintenance of the suburban railway station at Vidya Nagar.
This railway station lacked basic amenities like seating arrangements, drinking water and canteen facility. It was up to the Department of Railways to provide suitable security to passengers there and open a ticket booking counter, he said.
Mr. Kumar warned that the okkoota would launch a signature campaign to put pressure on Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu for fulfilment of these demands. It had been planned to collect signatures of at least 10,000 citizens, he said. Functionaries of the okkoota Satish Kumar Shetty, Ashok Yadav and S.B. Ashok Kumar took part in the protest.
