BENGALURU: Union Minister H N Ananth Kumar on Sunday said local trains similar to Mumbai may be the best solution for Bengaluru instead of a circular railway system.
Flagging off two trains from the city, he told reporters that according to a study done by the Rail Indian Technical and Economic Services, the circular railway project would require heavy expenditure as well as a lot of land to succeed.
He said local trains would be better for the city as there was already a two-way line between Bengaluru and Mysuru, Tumakuru, K R
Puram and Yelahanka. “These can be converted into electric lines without taking over much land and the tickets can also be priced reasonably,” he said.
He said the issue would be discussed with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu soon.
“Local trains will be economical. We can use existing lines with auto signaling and provide more stations en route to help passengers,” he said.
New Trains
The trains inaugurated are: train number 22695/22696 Yeswantpur-Jaipur-Yeswantpur Weekly Premium Express and train number 16587/16588 Yeswantpur-Bikaner-Yeswantpur Bi-weekly Express.

Everybody know it is the best, but the act is missing from SWR and politicians.

If Ananth Kumar is raising this Suburban rail just for the talk sake , he is very much wrong that people will fall for it . we need action not mere talks
