BENGALURU: The city's oldest railway station and the youngest railway junction will soon get a makeover. Tenders will be finalized on Saturday for redeveloping the Cantonment Station, which was built in 1864, and Yeshwantpur station, the second biggest junction in the city, to bring them on a par with airport terminals.
The two stations are among 23 stations across the country chosen for redevelopment. While Malaysian agencies have been roped in as consultants, the actual work will be executed by top Indian and multi-national infrastructure companies, say officials in South Western Railway (SWR).

envisages increasing amenities like eateries, hotels and shopping avenues and improving transit-oriented development, including access to station as well as other modes of transport outside its premises like buses and taxibays and Metro.
The redeveloper will have a 45-year lease period to monetize the land, but will have to hand over the station to respective railway zones after 15 years, including the transit-oriented development. In February, SWR floated the tenders for redevelopment and the last date for sending applications was June 1.
Bengaluru Cantonment Station is the city's first railway station and currently connects to 499 stations through 269 trains directly in a month and witnesses 7,500 footfalls daily. There are 30 daily trains moving through this station. It's an A category station (earning revenue between Rs 8 crore and Rs 60 crore). Yeshwantpur railway station is an A1 station (revenue above Rs 60 crore) and sees 126 train movements and over 1.5 lakh footfalls daily.
The Cantonment Station has an attached land parcel of 2.25 acres, while Yeshwantpur has about 20 acres available for commercial exploitation like parking slots, shops, hotels and office spaces for both private builder and the railways.
The Cantonment Station was built by the Madras Presidency and the first train chugged between Cantonment and then Jolarpettai station in 1864. The trains were operated by Madras Railway in the pre-Independence era. It was revamped in 2011 with a new entrance and a new ticketing counter behind platform 2. Slowly, AC VIP lounge, waiting halls, eateries, passenger reservation centres, a food plaza and clinic for medical help to passengers were added to the station.
Several construction majors have evinced interest in leveraging real estate available with the railway authorities in the city.

BENGALURU: Indian Railways is all set to introduce three more Humsafar trains for Karnataka shortly. These are GPS based, AC 3-tiered trains with special facilities for disabled.

S Soin, Additional General Manager (AGM), South Western Railway, Hubballi, said, “Railways will be introducing three more weekly Humsafar trains before March, two of which will originate within Bangalore Division.
The operation of trains though will fall under the jurisdiction of different railway zones and not the South Western Railway. The Humsafar trains offer additional comfort for passenger.”
The Kamakhya-Bengaluru Cantonment Weekly Humsafar Express was launched on December 25 from Kamakhya (Assam) and commenced regular operations from Bangalore Cantonment from December 30.
The new Humsafar trains will be introduced to Bhuvaneshwar from Krishnarajapuram, to Howrah from Yesvantpur and to Tiruchirapalli from Sriganganagar (Rajasthan), said Soin. The Hamsafar category of trains were announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 17 last year.
Elaborating on its features, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The trains will have an LED display board and coaches will have sensors to detect smoke and fire. The coaches are disabled-friendly with Braille display.” Bio-toilets, vending machines that can give tea, coffee and soup and newly designed dustbins are other features, he said.
In addition to that, Uday Express (double-decker train) from KSR station to Coimbatore will also be launched. The train will leave Coimbatore at 5.45am and reach KSR station at 12.35 pm. In the return direction, it will leave KSR at 2.15 pm and reach Coimbatore at 9 pm. It will run on all days except Monday. This will only be the second double decker from Bengaluru. One such train runs to Chennai daily.

There is no use for Karnataka public, as these are not running via any of the location in the‌‌ state. If rlys are really interested in welfare of Karnataka, they should run trains from SBC to Mumbai/ Ahmedabad via UBL, MYS to Goa via Hassan, Udupi, Goa to Hyderabad via UBL, BJP, GR, MYS to hyb via BAY, RC. Else only eyewash.

In today’s edition, Bangalore Mirror brings to you the second part of its series — the suburban rail service that connects two major worlds. One, new and upwardly mobile, and the other, as old as the very soil itself. A ride between City station and tech hub Whitefield is, metaphorically, a journey from crowds to crowd-sourcing
A solution that saves time, money
When a city is connected by local railway, travelling becomes much more easy and quicker. On a certain occasion, when the city was going through a bus strike, I had to
...
more...
travel to Hosur from Hebbal and since there were no buses available, I had to avail of the local train. It was on that day that I realized how feasible it is to travel around the city by local trains.
Since buses are an integral part of Bengaluru, most people like me miss out on the advantages of travelling by local trains, and only during crisis do they realize that one can travel to most parts of the city by local trains.
It is only in Bengaluru that suburban railway has seven directions and that is a great thing for a city to possess. If you are well versed with the timings of the local trains, you will not have any problems travelling to most parts of the city. What makes it beautiful is that in Karnataka, the local train travels through lush greenery, unlike Mumbai where you get to see construction sites everywhere.
A distance that requires three hours to reach can be reached in 45 minutes if you are travelling in local trains. Since there are two sides to every story, there are things
that make local railway problematic as well.
The thing that bothers me the most is the punctuality of the trains. There is no fixed time for a train to arrive and hence that creates a problem.
Spare the roads, and oil the tracks
In order to avoid the heavy traffic that Bengaluru is famous for, travel by local train. I have always been a supporter of suburban railway because that is the only way we can travel across the city in a very less time. One of the very effective solutions to the problem would be local trains. The outer ring road that has the most number of cars blocking each other will see 50 per cent less traffic if we begin commuting by local trains.
I don’t understand why people do not use them for their daily travels because when you can reach a location in 40 minutes, why would you want to take the roads and waste hours reaching the same spot. As we can clearly understand that travelling becomes easy when we avail of local trains, it also goes unnoticed that it creates lesser traffic congestions, faster connectivity, all at a lower cost.
What the public want these days is point-to-point connectivity, which is not possible when you are availing of public transport. I will always be ready to walk that extra mile to either take a metro or a train if that reduces both travel time as well as cost. With proper planning by the government, the bottlenecks can be reduced in no time.
One more aspect everybody misses out on is that avoiding cars and availing of local trains will reduce fuel consumption. That is national savings. We can save dollars for our country if we are saving petrol.

Trains do run on the route between SBC and Whitefield, but the majority of the commuters want the trains to run on schedule.
Hope IR manages to keep up the timings of the local trains in accordance with Metro services

there is heavy rail traffic in the Bangalore city limits at morning hours as long distance trains come early in the morning due to which the MEMU gets delayed but my suggestion is let SWR rail controller give more priority to local MEMUs than expresses/passenger trains from other places.

BENGALURU: To make good for the delay in introduction of a suburban rail service, the Bangalore Railway Division recently announced a list of trains to partially cover a segment of the proposed suburban route. In this connection, two Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services to Whitefield will be run at timings convenient to IT professionals from January 17.
According to railway sources, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will be coming to the city to flag off these services along with three services from here to Ramanagara on January 16. “The trains will be flagged off on January 16 evening and will run a short trip. The actual commercial run will begin the next morning (January 17),” they said.

of the services will run exclusively to Whitefield while the second service will stop at Whitefield enroute Kuppam. Three pairs of trains to Ramanagara, two of them evening trains, will also be launched on that day.
The MEMU to Whitefield will leave Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna railway station at 8.45 am and reach Whitefield at 9.40 am. In the return direction, it will leave Whitefield at 10.30 am and reach KSR at 11.10 am. The second train will leave KSR at 11.20 am and reach Kuppam at 1.45 pm. It will leave Kuppam at 2.45 pm and return to KSR at 5.20 pm. The trains will stop at Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations in both directions.
“With the Suburban Draft Policy making the state government solely responsible for putting in place a suburban network and calling for new infrastructure solely for suburban trains, Railways is now relived of playing the key role in putting in place the suburban service,” added a railway official.
The services between KSR and Ramanagara will have stops at Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Hejjala and Bidadi.
The timings of the proposed morning service is as follows: leave KSR at 5.20 am and reach Ramanagara at 6.15 am; In the return direction, leave Ramanagaram at 7 am and KSR at 8.40 am.

first train from Bengaluru to Ramanagara departs at 5 20 am, that returns to Bengaluru City at 8 45 am. This service will be further extended to Whitefield and will return back to Bengaluru city at 11.10 am.
The decision comes days after a citizen forum Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) launched a campaign “Chuku Buku Beku” demanding a well-connected suburban local train network in the city.
The campaign on Saturday saw many citizens take a rail yatra from Cantonment station to Whitefiled in KSR-Bangarpet MEMU, to highlight the necessity of local trains. A day after this, Union Minister Ananth Kumar assured that development works will be taken up soon.
The new train service is extended to decongest the city, of the heavy traffic in the peak hours of morning.
“This will help ease peak-hour traffic and benefit many who travel to Whitefield,” Sanjiv Agarwal, division railway manager of Bengaluru division, SWR, told TOI. He added that the train will halt at Cantonment, Bengaluru east, Byappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations.
