Rlys should expedite projects: CM to Centre

Quote:
Chief Minister Yeddyurappa has appealed to the Union Railway Minister to take up nine railway projects proposed by the State including Hubli-Ankola, Bijapur - Shahbad, Tumkur - Davangere on a priority basis.

In his letter to the Union Minister Mamata Banerjee, Yeddyurappa said the average rail density in the state was only 16 kms per 1,000 sq kms of geographical area.

The density was less compared to the national average and that of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu. He sought early implementation of several projects on a priority basis.

The CM also proposed to double the state’s share of its investment in railway projects, provide land for new projects free of cost and bear 50 per cent of the cost of new projects.

Projects proposed: Hubli - Ankola (167 kms); Bijapur - Shahbad (140 kms); Shimoga - Harihar (84 kms); Gadag - Haveri (84 kms); Whitefield - Kolar - Mulbagal (52 kms); Kuduchi - Bagalkot (142 kms); Tumkur - Davangere (210 kms); Alamatti - Koppal (150 kms); Londa - Goa (doubling - 109 kms). The proposed cost of these projects is Rs 5,809 crore.

Most of the proposed projects here are in the corridors discussed earlier. There may be some realignments in corridors.

Dedicated freight corridor announced for South India
I think it should be Golden-Quadrilateral with Belgaum-Bangalore. Other candidate may be North-South corridor. Even Konkan-Malabar corridor may also be considered in future?

Railway mulling giving vacant land to auto-ancillary industry
This report mentions Mangalore in place of Mysore.
Belgaum-Dharwad-Hubli-Shimoga-Udupi-Mangaore may be developed as an automobile corridor along with Bangalore-Bidadi-Ramnagar-Mysore automobile corridor.

Yes, the quadrilateral should really connect Bangalore with Mumbai via Belgaum/Hubli. This is an important link that's been ingored for time immemorial. May be North Kannadigas should demand a seperate state vis-a-vis Our Telangana cousins. THen, may be railway and other development will start!

Shimoga MP urges Mamata to expedite rly works

Quote:
BANGLAORE: Karnataka Chief Minister’s son B Y Raghavendra, MP, too written a letter to Indian Railway Minister Mamata Bannerjee and thanked her for introducing Bangalore-Shimoga-Bangalore intercity express.

However, he said a developmental works are at the· completion stage in· and around

Shimoga Town. Railway works are required to be fastened on the, same phase. To fulfill the aspirations of the people of Shimoga, I am· requesting you to facilitate the following works for the development of Shimoga area:-

1. Railway is planning to stop the train no. 227/228 between Arsikere-Shinioga-Arsikere this affects the poor people travelling all along Shimoga to Bangalore.

I specially request you to continue· the existing train no. 227/228.

He also urged the Railway Minister to speed up the survey work of Shimoga - Harihara New railway project which is ready announced the budget. The Shimoga - Talaguppa Gauge Conversion railway line is under construction, I request you to commission the same by March 2009.

There is no railway connectivity from Shimoga to Western coast/Konkan railway. Hence the railway line connectivity is very much required. I request you to kindly sanction Talaguppa - Honnavar New' railway line (83 kIn.) in the forth coming railway budget 2010-11.

The 100 feet ring road is under formation around Shimoga town, already 75% of the road is completed. Remaining portion of the land is comes under railway premises. Kindly direct your officers to handover the railway land. State government is ready to handover equivalent alternative land.

Telangana spurs Karnataka MPs to act

Quote:
GULBARGA: With a view to prevent secession movements inspired by the success of the Telangana agitation, MPs from Karnataka have decided to exert pressure on the Union Government to fulfil longstanding demands of different parts of the state.

A memorandum demanding among other things, the amendment of article 371 was drafted on Thursday and will be submitted to the Prime Minister in a few days.

Sources told Express that several Karnataka MPs held a meeting at New Delhi on Thursday, which was attended by union ministers Mallikarjun Kharge, and Veerappa Moily, and MPs Chandre Gowda, K B Shanappa and others.

The memorandum drafted at the meeting raises various issues including amending Article 371 of the Constitution on the Telangana model to give special reservation to the backward regions of the state.

It is learnt that amending Article 371 was not on the agenda of the MPs, but Kharge insisted that it should be included in the agenda. Other issues raised in the memorandum include sanctioning of new railway lines, completing long pending railway projects and providing sufficient compensation to the flood affected areas of the state.

Speaking to Express over phone from New Delhi, Kharge confirmed the meeting on Thursday and also the inclusion of the demand of amending Article 371.

No krishnamoorthy I did not visit Hyd-kar region That movement will never gain movement as it is groomed just by a bunch of politicians(who had lost their depositis in elections )

N-K horatta samithi has lost its ears,eyes, every organ is paralyzed.....

I last heard of it in 2003 after that it just vanished...........

In a way formation of telanga state is good for the hyd-kar region as it will put enormous pressure on the centre to act on article 371............


with kharge in the centre probably he can influence manmohan to implement the 371.............congress has lost its ground in the southern region it os high time that the centre puts 371 into effetc in hyd - kar region else soon it will come under BJP.............

Gulbarga, Hotgi Railway track to be doubled

One week old news:

Quote:
GULBARGA: If things go as planned, the long-pending demand of the people of Gulbarga and Raichur will soon be a reality.

According to sources, the Railway department has given the green signal for doubling the railway line between Gulbarga and Hutagi on the busy Mumbai-Delhi and Chennai-Bangalore track.

The Department, which has already completed survey on the route, is expected to invite tenders shortly.

Station Manager Pratap Singh Yadav told Express that once it materialises, there would be no restriction in introducing more trains on this route.

At present, trains run on a single line from Wadi to Hutagi.

Doubling work has already been completed from Hutagi to Solapur.

With the track doubling between Gulbarga and Hutagi, the Railways could start one more train from Solapur to Bangalore.

The KRV had staged agitations to pressurise the Railways to take up track-doubling between Gulbarga and Solapur.

The decision to change its earlier plan to lay a line between Dound and Gulbarga, including Mohol to Khem in Maharashtra, had invited the wrath of the KRV.

When the Railways proposed to start work from Mohol, KRV members protested in front of Gulbarga railway station. They pointed out that for the work from Mohol to Khem, 174 bridges had to be constructed, while only three bridges were needed for doubling the line between Gulbarga and Solapur. Following stiff opposition, the Railways took up track doubling work.

Connectivity to go up by 28.2 km for every 1,000 sq km
Railways growth on track in State

P M Raghunandan, dec 15, Bangalore:

Karnataka’s railway infrastructure is poised for a big leap in the coming days. The State will be able to boast about its railway infrastructure facilities once the current 20 railway projects, including new lines, gauge conversion and doubling of track, are completed, which are estimated to take nearly five years.


According to a recent study by the State Infrastructure Development Department, the State’s railway network will go up to 28.2 km for every 1,000 sq km area against the present 16.9 km. Similarly, 10.3 km of rail network will be available for every 1 lakh population against the present 6.2 km on completion of these projects.
Presently, all the neighbouring States are far ahead of Karnataka in terms of railway infrastructure facilities. The State has just 3,250 km of railway network, including all gauges. Andhra Pradesh has 5,172 km, Tamil Nadu 4,131 km and Maharastra has 5,535 km.

As many as 10 new railway line projects, including Kottur-Harihar, Gulbarga-Bidar, Munirabad-Mehaboobnagar, covering nearly 1,868 km, two gauge conversion projects covering 625 km and eight doubling projects including Bangalore-Mysore covering 249 km are being implemented in the State. Six of these projects have been taken up on a cost sharing basis.
Poor railway connectivity has been the State government’s biggest grouse. This, according to official sources has adversely impacted the State’s economic development. Improper railway connectivity has had a bad effect on the development of ports.

Though efforts of the successive State governments to secure more projects from the Indian Railways are now yielding results, the State would continue to lag behind when compared to the neighbouring States in terms of electrification of routes.
The State has just 138 km (4.2 per cent) of electrified railway line, while Andhra Pradesh has 46.5 per cent, Tamil Nadu has 28.4 per cent and Maharastra has 37.3 per cent. As many as 51.4 per cent of railway line in Kerala is electrified. Presently, only three electrification projects, covering 347 km including Bangalore-Mysore, have been taken up in the State.

“Karnataka will almost be at par with its neighbouring states in terms of railway infrastructure in about five years. However, lot more needs to be done with respect to electrification of existing lines, modernisation of stations and other facilities. Besides, there is a need for providing efficient rail connectivity to ports,” Principal Secretary to State Infrastructure Development Department V Madhu said.

Ongoing projects New lines

*Kottur-Harihar - 67 km
*Kadur-Chikmagalur - 93 km

I sure hope so, but I doubt he is reading this forum.

No long term plans for developing trunk lines still. Piecemeal growth is what I see here, except for Mysore-Bangalore. Still, this is a step in the right direction for sure.

MPs demand Bangalore-Mangalore train extension to Karwar

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangalore, Dec 17: MP of Mangalore Nalin Kumar Kateel and MP of Udupi-Chikmagalur D V Sadananda Gowda requested K Muniyappa, the union minister of state for railways to extend the day and night trains from Mangalore to Bangalore to Karwar in Uttara Kannada through Udupi and Kundapura.

In a letter to Union Minister Muniyappa, the two MPs said that the extension of the Bangalore-Mangalore train was against the best interests of the people of coastal Karnataka. Political forces were responsible for it.

In their letter to Muniyappa, the two MPs stated that the railway along Bangalore, Hassan, and Mangalore generated a lot of profit. The railway is the only connection between Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka, and Mangalore, the only port city of Karnataka. They said that people in thousands commute along these railways. Also, the railways are used to transport millions of tonnes of iron ore for the purpose of shipping.

They said that the benefits of the people of Karnataka have been forcibly snatched away from them.

Railways thinking of setting up windmills

Quote:
* Eight such units likely in three divisions
* ‘Energy Conservation’ seminar in Hubli
* Each unit may generate 5 MUs every year

HUBLI: General Manager of South Western Railway Kuldeep Chaturvedi has said that the zone was thinking of installing eight wind power generation units of 2 MW each in Hubli, Bangalore and Mysore divisions.

Delivering a keynote address at a seminar on “Energy Conservation” held as part of the “Energy Conservation Week” in Hubli on Tuesday, Mr. Chaturvedi said that each unit was expected to generate around 5 million units of power every year.

He said that for remote stations, level crossings and tunnels, the Railways was exploring the use of small capacity wind plus solar hybrid systems for electrification purpose.

Such a move would bring down carbon emissions attributable to the Railways substantially and also help in gaining carbon credits correspondingly, he said.

Mr. Chaturvedi said, “Energy saved is energy generated”. He elaborated the ways and means of saving energy at various railway stations, offices, workshops and asked the electrical engineers to suggest innovative methods to save energy.

In his inaugural address, V.K. Tempe, Chief Electrical Engineer of South Western Railway, provided details of the power consumption by the zone and highlighted the various steps taken to save energy.

Manoj Mahajan made a presentation on energy conservation. Smita Srivastava and R.N. Meena presented technical papers on energy issues. Senior railway officials J.D. Goswami, S. Lakshminarayana, S.K. Behera, M. Ramchandran, S. Mohan, Adesh Sharma, Vikrant Kalra, C.N. Mehrotra and Chief Public Relations Officer S.P. Shastri were present.

Akash, you asked for electrification. They are going to have windmills to generate electricity all along Mysore-Bangalore-Belgaum route.

Karnataka keen to up PPPs for upcoming projects

Quote:
As part of its plan to attract more investments into the state, the Karnataka government is in the process of inviting more private players to increase public-private-partnership (PPP) in the state. This will be extended to sectors like Railways which has not seen much projects as PPPs so far.

“We are looking at PPPs in nine projects in Railways. Earlier, PPP in Railways was only talked about. Nowadays, we are seeing it transforming into reality,” said V Madhu, principal secretary, Infrastructure Development Department, Government of Karnataka.

It is estimated investment into extending the rail network connectivity would be to the tune of Rs 23,300 crore by 2020.

As a first step to attract private partners, the government’s preparations for the global investors meet is on in full swing. It was postponed from January to June 2010 due to the flood situation in Karnataka.

“We have identified 112 important projects that would require private partnerships. We are making profiles for each industry and accessing global companies and counsulate offices. We will hold roadshows, presentations and discussions on the projects to market them in other countries,” said Madhu. Government and industry members have estimated that investment of close to around Rs 2,00,000 crore could be pledged during the event.

The government has identified steel, cement, food processing, IT/BT, automobile, readymade garments, sugar, pharma, power and media and entertainment as its main growth sectors in the coming year. The government has notified around 30,000 acres of industrial land for upcoming projects. It would look at allocating land especially in the Suvarna Karnataka Development corridor which would cover 11 district headquarters and more than 20 major towns along the highways and major roads and rail links.

The government is also focusing on developing minor ports in the state. Karnataka has a 300-km-long coastline and 10 minor ports. For its proposed Tadri Port project, the government is planning a capacity of 34 mtpa in the first phase which is expected to be read by 2013.

An investment of Rs 3,000 crore is expected into it. The state will create a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the purpose with a private partner where the government will retain a 26 per cent stake. For this, the government has acquired 1,200 acres of land. The government will make a notification on the private partners in the coming months.

PPP projects are not moving as per a DHNS news posted in Karnataka projects thread.

When trunk lines are doubled and electrified: Bangalore - Belgaum,
Bangalore - Mangalore, Konkan Railway, and the main line to New Delhi from Bangalore. All are important and ignored while small states like Kerala routinely get doubling and elecrtrfication almost everywhere in the state.

Start with Bangalore-Belgaum and Bangalore - Mangalore. KR is a little more difficult owing to engineering challenges.

The map combines the details of earlier maps, post#128 and the details in
http://www.praja.in/en/blog/kbsyed61...aja-initiative

I could not locate Kambargani on google map (*Dharwad-Kambargani - 26.2 km). Hence it is not drawn. Similarly small lines around Bangalore, Mangalore are not drawn.

In the map I think the lines around Hospet and Kalburgi (Gulbarga) should be straightened up.

In North East Karnataka I have connected (orange lines) the cities which appear on google map at this scale. I am not sure whether they are the biggest cities in those regions or whether the lines benefit maximum number of people. Of course, other details like resources, industrialization factors should also be considered while planning for new railway lines.

Number of lines cutting Western Ghats are kept to a minimum, hence recommended to be electrified double lines. The main corridors are drawn with thick lines and expected to be electrified double lines.



As there is an objection by environmentalists for NH-212 cutting Bandipur NP, we could have a road and a railway connection to Kerala through Kushalnagar or Hunsur. Mysore can be connected with G-Q, N-E corridors through Kollegal and Dharmapuri. Similarly Northern Karnataka can be connected to Ratnagiri port and other important cities of Maharashtra and AP.

The industrialization near western ghats should be a minimum. Regions like Madikeri, Sakaleshpur-Hassan, Chikmaglur, Thirthahalli-Shimoga, west of Hubli-Dharwad-Belgaum should not be industrialized. Similarly Bhatkal-Karwar region also have enough greenery to be saved.

Exactly I dont want industries in western ghats.I am happy that we have the richest biodiversity there.

Please include Mysore also,I don't want mysore to get industrialized we have very fabulous serenity around.

Let bellary,bengaluru,tumkur,NE karnataka region get industrialized I will be happy for that.

But please exclude Mysore and Belgaum let them be free from dust and remain pristine forever.

Vintage signalling system to be preserved at City railway station

Old beauty signals goodbye

S Lalitha Bangalore Dec 23 DH News Service


With the old giving way to the new, cabins housing the traditional signalling systems at the City railway station were dismantled and a single computerised signalling system began operations recently.

Traditional signalling system.However, the railways is just not able to let go of its 40-plus electrical-mechanical signalling system in one of its cabins which is part of Bangalore Division’s history. The cabin with the machine are now set to be preserved for posterity.

The mammoth machine has been assembled from parts exported from different parts of India and abroad. According to sources, the frame bearing control switches dates back to 1967 and was bought from Podanur in Tamil Nadu, when Bangalore was part of the Southern Railway Division. The 20 locks, located underground were been manufactured by Siemens and General Electric, London nearly 50 years ago. The age of the levers, which had been operated manually all these years is uncertain. “It has been in existence since our operations began and may be more than 50 years old but no one is aware of the actual age,” a source said.

Two other cabins bearing the fully mechanical signalling system have now been dismantled. “This cabin, at the end of the first platform, and the equipment will be preserved. It would be a vital learning process for railway staff and to public interested in railway heritage and antique objects,” said a source.

“It is vintage by Railway standards,” said Divisional Railway Manager, Bangalore Division, Akhil Agrawal. “Equipment used for operational purposes are generally changed every 25 years due to wear and tear. We are fortunate that this machine was used for more than 40 years and it functioned perfectly well till its last day,” he said. The high quality of the products used to assemble it and periodic oiling and maintenance have helped in lengthening its life span, he added. Spares for the machines are no longer available and the Railways had acquired a modernised system before the archaic machine gave way.
The levers sometimes got stuck but the problems were managed due to extra levers in place, he said.

There is no plan to move it to the Rail Museum in Mysore which is a storehouse of railway antiques. “The parts have to be shifted and reassembled again if we decide to relocate it. It is a vital part of the signalling history here and so we have decided to retain it here,” said a source.

Is there a Railway Museum in the state? If not Davanagere at the center of Karnataka can be a ideal candidate.

Karunanidhi to flag off Chennai-Mangalore Train tomorrow
Mangalore-Puducherry route becomes shorter

Railways have worked out the rail route for the express in such a way that it would take only 14 hours for a passenger from Mangalore Central to reach Puducherry.
