Today (09:21)   New Bengaluru-Hassan line commissioning next week; Prime Minister invited for inauguration

Hassan-Yeshwantpur Intercity Express is the first confirmed train to run after the formal inauguration, the date for which is yet to be announced
BANGALORE: Former Prime Minister and Hassan Lok Sabha member H.D. Deve Gowda will invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate the new Hassan-Bengaluru line. “The Railway Minister (Suresh Prabhu) desires that the line be opened by the Prime Minister and [has] requested me to extend a formal invitation. I’m going to Delhi tomorrow and try to speak the Prime Minister or intimate this to his office,” Mr. Deve Gowda told on Tuesday.

after coming to power, Mr.Modi had promised to complete the line on priority; it still took about three years. “I am not going to blame anyone for the inordinate delay of 22 years for the completion of the line,” said Mr. Deve Gowda, who had sanctioned the line when he was PM.
The 110-km Nelamangala-Shravanabelagola railway line, part of the new 166-km Bengaluru-Hassan line, is set to be commissioned by South Western Railway (SWR) on February 28. This follows authorisation given by A.K. Manoharan, Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Circle, who inspected the line and conducted speed trials between February 6 and 10. Ashok Gupta, chief administrative officer, Construction, SWR, told The Hindu that the commissioner on Monday issued authorisation to run passenger trains with a maximum speed of 80 kmph.
With this, the hope of the people of Hassan and coastal regions for the shortest rail route to Bengaluru has come true. The project had been announced by Deve Gowda way back in 1996, but the work progressed at a snail’s pace, partly owing to non-availability of land and mostly because of meagre fund allocation by the Railways.
Sharing the cost
In 2010, the then Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa decided to share the cost of ongoing as well as new Railway projects to sped up the work. More funds from the Railways came when D.V. Sadananda Gowda was Railway Minister.
SWR’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya said the commissioning would be done with a trial run of a passenger train on the section on February 28. The formal inauguration would be done depending upon the dates acceptable for the dignitaries.
New train
As of now, SWR has planned an intercity express between Hassan and Yeshwantpur, leaving Hassan at around 6 a.m. and reaching Yeshwantpur at 9.30 a.m. In the return direction, the train would leave Yeshwantpur at around 6 p.m. and reach Hassan at 9.30 p.m. It is tentatively scheduled to halt at Chikkabanavar, Kunigal, Yediyur, Balagangadhar Nagar, Shravanabelagola and Channarayapatna.
Meanwhile, the zone has sought the Railway Board’s permission to re-route the yet-to-be-introduced Train No. 16575/576 Bengaluru-Mangaluru Kudla Express via the new route. Mr. Sadananda Gowda had announced this train in 2014 to run via Mysuru.
Ms. Vijaya also said three goods trains between Mangaluru and Bengaluru would be diverted via the new section after February 28.
Manpower allocation
Since it is a large section, SWR requires at least 120 workers, including 60 tracks-men and about 35 stations masters. The zone is in the process of identifying personnel for posting and the process could take about a fortnight, Ms. Vijaya said.

Atlast SWR runs a Special useful for Karnataka !!! Should have been on Friday which has huge rush instead of Thursday. Y couldn't they run it till Miraj so that places like Kudachi, Gokak, Ghatprabha & Belagavi get a useful train to Bengaluru, or atleast it could have been run till BGM.
Is YPR-Pandharpur Spl cancelled or it also running ?? If still running, then two Specials on Thursday while just RC and MAS-Vasco on Fridays in which we never get confirmed tickets.

Tumakuru-Arsikere Doubling update.

1. The levelling of land for laying tracks between TK and ASK at most places is complete.
2. Between TTR and ASK sleepers have been placed and track laying has begun.
3.

As per new standards a lot of LCs are being eliminated by building RoBs and RuBs. This is being done in between BAW and TK also for some remaining LCs.
4. At many small stations the lone PF line has been removed, don't know why.... People have to struggle to board trains which stop on the mainline.
5. TK's new 4th PF is almost complete, some finishing work still left. I noticed that the signal at one end has been switched on. But the PF improvement work of 2-3 seems to have no change from what I saw a month ago.

Yes NZM-UBL Goa Link gets attached to Miraj-UBL Exp at Londa, but UBL-Londa-NZM Goa Link goes as single rake from UBL to Londa to get attached to Goa towards NZM.

Looking at your Pic it looks like Loco Power of Miraj - Hubli Exp leads the Train, while Loco power of Goa Exp trails behind the Last SLR.
Do you remember which part was immediately after Loco ?

Feb 11 2017 (08:33)   Line inspection between Nelamangala, Shravanabelagola ends

It is expected to be operationalby February-end
The inspection of the 110-km railway line between Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) was completed on Friday.
K.A. Manoharan, Commissioner of Railway Safety (Bengaluru), conducted the five-day inspection, which began on February 6.
The track’s suitability was also tested by running the train at 110 km/h.
The
...

team, which included Chief Administrative Officer (Construction) Ashok Gupta and Divisional Railway Manager Sanjiv Agarwal, inspected the track, bridges, stations, signal and basic amenities along the route.
Mr. Manoharan, speaking to presspersons at Shravanabelagola, said that the track condition was okay but there were minor issues with regard to other things.
“The issues that need to be improved have been brought to the notice of officials concerned,” he said.
The line connecting Hassan and Bengaluru via Shravanabelagola was proposed 20 years ago when H.D. Deve Gowda was the Prime Minister.
The line is expected to be operational by the end of this month. Mr. Gupta said that he was hopeful that the train would run by the end of February.
‘Remarkable construction’
Mangaluru Special Correspondent reports:
K.N. Krishnaprasad and T.P. Lokesh from Karnataka Railway Vedike, a rail advocacy group, who witnessed the inspection on Friday, said that the construction was remarkable despite two-decade delay. Platforms at all stations are designed to accommodate a full-train (24 coaches) even as there are no level crossings on the entire section.
An engineer with SWR construction wing however said only one level crossing exists near Soladevanahalli, off Nelamangala, which can be eliminated.
Otherwise, railway under or over bridges are constructed between Nelamangala and Hassan for crossing roads.
This helps operating trains at high speeds, Mr. Prasad said.
Parts of the Bengaluru-Hassan new line (166 km), Chikkabanavara-Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola-Hassan, are already commissioned.

2 level crossings actually.
-
The line is considered from BAW to HAS.
So you might have noticed that from BAW to SDVL - its 3 tracks - 2 for TK trains and 1 on extreme left to NMGA. After SDVL station immediately there is a Level crossing. This is common to all 3 tracks. After the level crossing all 3 tracks

run together and then start branching out. 2 towards TK and 1 to the left to NMGA. When the branch separates, again there is a level crossing. After that till NMGA and subsequently to Hassan no LCs at all.

Yes, DVG-JRU is also getting doubled, first priority is ASK-TK doubling as its the route too many trains are getting delayed . And doubling of DVG-UBL route is going too slow at present.
