I can explain this. Its not you alone with the same opinion and we are really fed up with such a guy who is now blocking all the opportunities Perinthalmanna cud reap. This MLA can now be termed as the worst. Not that he is inefficient. But he is arrogant enough not to do anything good for Perinthalmanna. The problem dint started in a day. Its a long story.

He came into power after replacing the very much efficient and best MLA we had till dat Mr. Sasikumar way back in 2011. But his main problem was that PMNA Municipality wasn't with his party. That time it was 50-50 in seat sharing between 2 parties and LDF won to rule the Municipality thru a lucky draw (seriously!). For that reason he began to concentrate the projects around the Municipal Areas and left out the town completely. And he is a prominent businessman too. He have a huge investment in PMNA and he don't want to loose that areas of commercial interest particularly. So any project that wud affect his business he seems to be not interested. This is one reason that affected even the NH Bypass project which is still in red tape.

Same is the case Nilambur- Najangud. Its such a dream project that as u said Perinthalmanna is going to be the biggest beneficiary of the project along with Wynad. We the people know that. Unfortunately in the MLA won again from the PMNA LA with a margin of just 500 Votes this time against 10000 votes in 2011. After this he seems like he is taking revenge on the people of Perinthalmanna. I believe our MLA is not following the ethics of democracy with such a unprofessional attitude towards the position he enjoy !

But do not worry. The people is not with him now. Even his party men. Regarding the Nilambur-Nangangud Project the people of PMNA will always be there to support with what they can !

Adding to this. You wud know the seriousness of the issue when you come to know that this MLA hasn't proposed a single project as his own for Perinthalmanna in the budget 2017 !

Not to offend you, but do you think Nilambur Nanjangud came into priority because whole Kerala supported it ?? NO! Even the people from Kozhikode to Kasaragod doesn't. It is solely because Nilamburukaran Minister Aryadan !!

Now, the Kerala government has not deleted the Nilambur-Nanjangud project from the list, may be they fear a public outcry? They were forced to release the money to DMRC as well so now DMRC can do the location surveys. In worst case we may have to wait for the next government (hopefully not another Thalasserikkaaran at the top) for the Nilambur-Nanjangud project to really gain momentum.
Public Outcry ? Its Pinarayi Vijayan. Even his ministers cannot force him, You might have seen the situation of Jayarajan and Sreemathi
Unlike Pinarayi Vijayan govt who has listed Nilambur in Phase 2 (not scrapped it), Aryadan ditched 100 years old Thalassery Mysore Railway project. You can clearly see that during his tenure, there weren't even mentions of Thalassery Mysore line in the budgets !! By looking at the current scenario, I dont think UDF will come into power in 2021, and there would be no option for LDF other than Pinarayi Vijayan.

Riaz, If at all Nilambur line materializes, There is no chance of any stops in Malappuram dist for important trains. Most probably these trains coming from kochi and tvm will stop at wayanad after shornur. Even if it stops in the district , that will be Nilambur only . Try for Feroke- Airport - Nilambur line and link it to konkan route and make nilambur a terminal station with pitline and there by we can increase the seat quota for malabar which is now a very small amount!! Do you know the ratio of seat quota in Malabar area and rest of Kerala ??

Forget about upcoming lines, You guys in Malappuram dist doesnt have stops of important trains right now, first try to get that. Why Rajadhani Express is not stopping in Malappuram ? Is it because Malappuram doesnt deserve it ? NO , it is because south kerala lobby is working on it !! It has only 2 stops in entire malabar ! So please try get these things first, then only Malappuram towns will get benefit from Upcoming lines.

Can you please elaborate that part? Rajadhani did not have stop at Kollam and Alappuzha for a really long time. Thanks to the MPs we have, now Rajadhani have stops at Kollam and Alappuzha. What was your MP doing? Did he ever request for a stop in Malappuram district?

Well I don't understand the argument for 'first achieve a stop and then achieve a line' seriously.And I dont understand wen u said there cant be important stoppage at Angadipuram. I didnt find any reason for you to answer for that. In case of Tirur I believe that its completely the MP's responsibility for not getting a stoppage for important Trains like rajadhani. I believe its been a major cry of Tirurians for long. But there cud be many reasons. The thing is Tirur railway station is being depended by very small part of the district to be honest. Tirur doesn't serve the whole of Malappuram as you think.

The people in the west part of Malappuram district - around Tirur only depends on Tirur. Since they have Kuttipuram too in the nearby locality the dependency is scattered. And remaining major part of the district either depend on Kozhikode (for major trains) since its accessible easily than Tirur to majority of the district population. And the rest depends upon Angadipuram and Nilambut Line to get a connection to major trains to Shornur. So Tirur doesn't represent the whole of Malappuram when it comes to Rly map.

And do not think that Perinthalmana is Tirur. Its more like a central part and easily accessible from all sides. Moreover the population dependency and inflow of the PMNA is way larger than Tirur. So the demand and the planning will be as such for sure once Nilambur - Nanjangud is materialized. Even now being a short route, Angadipuram is the only station between SRR & Nilambur with a crossing facility. And the facilities are improving. And souther Rly was always keen to consider ANG for many up gradations. So dont worry about Perinthalmanna/Anagdipuram. Also our MP is different from Ponnani MP who represent Tirur. Our MPs have a past of even involving in making the CCJ to get International Status. So we aren't worried about that. Lets focus on the line to happen first !

Dr E Sreedharan met Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and held discussion on Nilambur - Nanjangud railway project. K. R. Jyothilal, Secretary (Transport) of Kerala government had also participated in the meeting.

Indications are that this is a preparatory meeting ahead of the meeting of two chief ministers (KA and KL) to be held later.

Details of the new survey report:
- Total length of new line: 176.10 km (113.65 km in KL, 62.45 km in KA)
- 57.80 km of tunnels in KL; 17.50 km in KA
- 51 major bridges of which 33 are in KL
- 13 new stations proposed:
Malappuram: Nilambur Road (existing), Akambadam, Pothukallu, Pariyalppara, Pettammudi
Wayanad: Chooralamala, Meppadi, Kalpetta, Meenangadi, Sulthan Bathery
Karnataka: Hegganur, Saragur, Kallambalu, Ambale, Nanjangud Town (existing)

I see that as per the new alignment, the line in KA has shifted towards north and is now going through villages close to Kabani River. So they have either completely avoided Bandipur National Park or only minimal crossing is happening through the Park. Perhaps this is the reason KA is now extending support to this railway project?

I think the shortest way to connect Kozhikode with Nilambur - Nanjangud is to build a line Feroke - Mavoor - Mukkam - Thiruvambadi - Anakkampoyil - Chooralmala (Wayanad), in parallel to the proposed Tunnel Road. This will be about 40 to 50 km of new rail line I guess.

Similarly, for Thalassery - Mysore, if they are building through Wayanad then I think they will join the line Thalassery - Mananthavady line somewhere between Sulthan Bathery and Heggannur.

Principal adviser to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) E. Sreedharan said the proposed Nilambur–Nanjangud railway line could be implemented without disturbing wildlife in the Bandipur Wildlife Reserve, through which a stretch of the proposed line would pass.

The DMRC has been entrusted by the Kerala government to prepare a detailed project report. Mr. Sreedharan met Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday to discuss the proposal.

“The Forest Department has genuine concerns as the line passes through reserved areas. We have given a proposal involving tunnel construction with the use of tunnel-boring machines (TBMs), which would cause minimum impact to surrounding areas,” said Mr. Sreedharan. Part of the proposal includes a 11-km underground stretch passing through Bandipur Wildlife Sanctuary.

Assistant Principle Conservator of Forests C. Jayaram said the Forest Department had yet to receive a proposal for the railway line. “The Kerala government has roped in Mr. Shreedharan to prepare a DPR. It requires detailed deliberation as part of the line passes through a national sanctuary. These are sensitive areas and wildlife and environment clearance is required before the project gets under way,” said Mr. Jayaram.

Prakash Mandoth, former member of the Zonal Railway User’s Consultative Committee, said three proposed lines — the Nilambur–Nanjangud, Thalassery–Mysuru and Chamarajnagar–Mettupalayam line — would greatly reduce travel time from Karnataka to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. “If the Nilambur line becomes a reality, major goods and passenger traffic to Kerala can be rerouted through it. However implementation should be done balancing environment and ecology,” he added. He also said it would reduce time to Thiruvananthapuram by up to seven hours.

The Nilambur–Nanjangud project has been in the cold storage for nearly a decade. A resurvey conducted by Mr. Sreedharan had brought down the distance for the proposed line between Nilambur and Nanjangud to 154 km, from the earlier proposal of 236 km.

‘Training metro engineers could help quicken pace of work’

A training course will help address the issue of shortage of trained engineers and help quicken the pace of metro work, said E. Sreedharan, principal adviser to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, at a workshop organised for corporate employees by the Foundation for Restoration of National Values.

“There are many metro projects happening all over the country, so there is a shortage of trained staff. We started a course in IIT Delhi to train engineers for Delhi metro, a similar programme could be done here,” he said.

When asked to comment about work on Namma Metro being delayed due to obstructions in underground stretches, he said that for urgent projects, both overhead and underground stretches should start at the same time. “It is possible that the BMRCL delayed work on underground stretch due to delay in procuring tunnel-boring machines,” he added.

Mr. Sreedharan said Bengaluru needed a high-speed connection to the airport since time was a major factor. “A high-speed metro corridor with a few stops would help passengers,” he added.

Wayanad Railway (Nilambur-Sulthan Bathery-Nanjangud Railway)

Finally the project is gaining momentum.

Next meeting with KA is scheduled on 27th March which is next week.

DMRC is now using their office in Kozhikode for the survey works of this project. (That office was originally opened for Light Metro works in Kozhikode).

Action committee formed to demand merging of Thalassery - Mysore rail line with Nilambur - Nanjangud line at Sulthan Bathery.

I liked PC Thomas' statement: "As it is now confirmed the Nilambur - Nanjangud rail line will become a reality....."

Time for some negative news now....KA forest department is opposing the Nilambur - Nanjangud rail project.

This is not a surprise though. Hopefully they are convinced soon....

Hopefully KA will have to come to terms with DMRC I guess. There is no proof that an underground tunnel will affect the wildlife in a national park. It cud be even below 10% damage that a road cud cause to the wildlife through the forest area. What else they are intending to do other than a tunnel. Its the most safest i guess. Keep calm and trust in ES !

Yes, of course it will be sorted eventually, one way or the other. The question is how much time will be lost to this - few weeks, months or years?

Already we lost 10 years. For any major project in our country, it wud take 10-15 years normally before we break the ground. It's fate! We know the reasons very well.

All the best Mysore- Thalassery route. LDF will definitely bat for that than Nilambur - Nanjangud

Wayanad Railway (Nilambur-Sulthan Bathery-Nanjangud Railway)

DMRC study finds Thalassery - Mysore railway line to be impractical.

DMRC recommends to proceed with Nilambur- Nanjangud rail which will benefit entire state of Kerala, whereas the Thalassery line will only benefit people to the north of Kuttippuram.

Rate of return of Thalassery line is found to be below zero.
