Metro to run every 6 minutes during peak hours

http://www.newindianexpress.com/citi...cle3537651.ece



In a huge relief for commuters, Namma Metro will increase the frequency of trains from eight minutes to six minutes during morning and evening peak hours starting Wednesday. The changes will be effected on the Baiyappanahalli-Mysuru Road stretch. The frequency, however, has been reduced for certain non-peak hours.

At the Baiyappanahalli Metro Station end, a train will be run every six minutes between 7.46am and 9.10am and between 5pm and 7.54pm.

From the Mysuru Road end, a train will be run every six minutes from 8.22am to 9.52am and between 5.48pm and 8.37pm. Metro was running trains at a frequency of eight minutes between 8am and 8pm, which it considered peak hours, and at a frequency of 10 minutes from 6am to 8am and from 6pm to 8pm.

It had been running trains once every seven minutes during peak hours for the last fortnight on an experimental basis.

“There is a huge patronage for Metro now and hence we have taken the decision in public interest. We are planning to run a train every three minutes during peak hours after the North-South Corridor also becomes operational,” BMRCL Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said.

The frequency has been reduced from 10 minutes to 15 minutes from 6am to 7.15am and from 9.15am to 10am from Baiyappanahalli Metro station and from 6am to 7.58am from Mysuru Road.

Talgo tilting train to reduce commuting time between Bengaluru, Mysuru

Quote:
Travel time between Bengaluru and Mysuru could be reduced to 90 minutes in the near future if trials with a high speed, tilting train manufactured by Spanish manufacturer Talgo conducted between Delhi and Mumbai in the next few days are successful.

Union Minister Suresh Prabhu on Saturday said that larger orders for the trains will be placed based upon the success of the trial run, which will likely begin from August 1. The train recently clocked 180 kmph this week between Mathura and Palwal during a trial run. “This technology will be cheaper as it can run on existing tracks. Since there are a lot of curves on the Bengaluru-Mysuru line, it will be better. We will start in a short time,” Mr. Prabhu said.

The state government had proposed the use of these trains on the route to reduce the travel time without having to create new infrastructure. Track doubling and electrification work on the line is almost completed. A major hurdle of shifting Tipu Sultan’s armoury taken up by US based company Wolfe Private Limited will also be completed soon. “In all probability, the project will be completed by year-end and tilting train coaches will be an added attraction on the track,” said R.V. Deshpande, Major Industries Minister, who also has the infrastructure portfolio.

Tilting train coaches are product of Talgo-the Spanish manufacturer of intercity, standard, and high speed trains. These coaches are light in weight and designed in a way that it can run on curves without decelerating. The Indian Railway recently conducted the first trial run in the stretch between Bareilly and Moradabad, as part of strategy to increase the speed of the trains, the minister explained.

Above news states clearly : "On track-doubling work in the Ramanagara-Mysuru section having hit a hurdle because of over 200-year-old Tipu Armoury at Srirangapatna railway station, Deshpande said the process of shifting the armoury has been entrusted to an American firm and it will begin in the next two months".

Looks like its going same way as namma metro is doing with its underground section.

It is Hebbal - Yeshwantpur Industry Metro Station - Kanteerava Studio - Ambedkar College - Nayandanahalli - PES College - Katriguppe - Devegowda Petrol Bunk - Kadirenahalli - Sarakki Signal - Puttenahalli - Delmia - Bannerghatta Road.

It will integrate with Metro in Yeshwantpur Industry Track - Nayandanahalli - Sarakki Signal.

One problem is that already flyover work has been started between Nayandanahalli - Bannerghatta Road. Light Rail has to take deviation.

KIADB to Railways: Will hand over land for Bengaluru-Hassan line

Quote:
BENGALURU: The Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) has assured Railway officials that it will hand over a 4-km stretch of land, a dispute over which has held back the Bengaluru-Hassan broad-gauge line via Shravanabelegola proposed nearly two decades ago.

An assurance to this effect was given by the KIADB during a meeting held by Infrastructure Minister R V Deshpande at Vidhana Soudha with South Western Railway, Aviation and State Government officials in connection with speeding up infrastructure projects across the State.

“We will hand over the land to the South Western Railway within a month,” Chief Executive Officer of KIADB Pankaj Kumar Pandey told Express.

The 165-km line between Bengaluru and Hassan was announced in 1987 when H D Deve Gowda was Prime Minister.

This Rs 1,060-crore project will be the shortest route from Bengaluru to Hassan via Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur and Shravanabelegola, a journey that can be covered in just 2.5 hours, a top official said.

The stretch from Shravanabelegola to Hassan, covering 55 km, has been declared open but very few trains run on the line. This was because it is a single line, an official said.

The 110-km stretch from Bengaluru to Sharavanabelegola has been plagued with land acquisition issues in Ramanagaram, Tumakuru and Mandya districts, he added.

“It involves a 2-km stretch in Ramanagaram and patches of land in Tumakuru and Mandya. All the land has been acquired now, but the KIADB had not yet paid the compensation which could work out to around `5 crore to landowners whose properties were acquired,” the official said.

“If the compensation is paid and we can take full possession of the land by August, we will be on course to meet the December 2016 completion deadline announced by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu two months ago,” the official said.

The assurance came after Hassan MP H D Deve Gowda made an emotional appeal saying that he hoped to see his dream project implemented in his lifetime at a function on May 15 to mark the inauguration of railway infrastructure projects in the State.

At present, two routes link Bengaluru with Hassan: The short route through Arasikere (200 km) takes 3.5 hours plus an additional 30 minutes for an engine change at Arasikere. The long route is through Mysuru (260 km) which takes 4.5 hours plus an additional 30 minutes for an engine change at Mysuru.

By the time they complete this project, Bengaluru-Mangaluru would be yearning and overdue for High Speed Rail.

Track doubling: Tipu’s armoury relocation by September 30

Quote:
The translocation of the 18th century Tipu’s armoury at Srirangapatna railway station, which has delayed the completion of the track doubling work between Mysuru and Bengaluru, will be over by September 30.

The specialised equipment for relocating the nearly 40 x 35 ft structure from the base will be in place by August 15, and the actual transportation will take not more than 30 days. “In all probability, the work will be practically over by September 30,” said a senior official in the South Western Railway.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, he said that once the monument is relocated, the new bridges across the Cauvery — across Cauvery North and Cauvery South — will also be taken up, and the 1.2-km stretch of the double track will be laid to complete the project by September 30.

The work was originally scheduled for completion by March 31, but the deadline was extended by six months. Officials are positive that there will be no more extensions as the work on the site to physically relocate the monument was on. The monument will be moved about 100 m from its original spot, and will have the same orientation as it is now. The civil works to remove the earth around the monument right down to the foundation of the armoury building is on, while the RCC foundation at the new site is also nearing completion, said the official.

The process of translocation proved to be difficult than originally thought as it is made of brick and lime mortar. The Railways forbid slicing or cutting the structure into blocks or reassembling it. Given the complexity of the operations, there were no response to the tender floated for the works initially, but finally, a U.S.-based company, Wolfe Private Ltd., with expertise in such work, was awarded the contract.

The relocation became inevitable for laying the second track as the monument is along the new alignment. Due to complexities involved in relocation and the consequent delay, only a 1.2-km stretch at Srirangapatna remains to be doubled out of the 139-km stretch between Mysuru and Bengaluru.

Meanwhile, the steel girder of the bridge across Cauvery North is in place and the track is being laid and the work is in progress on the bridge across Cauvery South. Once the monument is relocated, the double line track will link the two sections, marking the completion of the entire project.
