A proposal in this regard has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval
Section of speeds of some trains in the Mysuru division of the South Western Railway is likely to be increased and a proposal for the same has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval.
As per the proposal, the top speed of trains to Nanjangud, which is restricted to 70 kmph at present, will be increased to 90 kmph. This is subject to completion of ballasting which is in progress and the tentative date of completion of the
...

ongoing ballasting work is June 30, 2017.
The proposal to speed up the train on the section was sent on the railway headquarters on December 30, 2016 and is expected in due course. Once the trains are speeded up, the 25-km stretch between Mysuru and Nanjangud can be covered in shorter duration as against nearly 45 minutes that it takes at present. Incidentally, the four-laning of the highway between Mysuru and Nanjangud has reduced the tedium of motoring on the road and the distance is covered in around 25 to 30 minutes by the motorists.
Similarly, for trains plying in the section between Nanjangud and Chamarajanagar, which has a route length of 35 km, the top speed at present is 70 kmph and the proposal is to increase the same to 100 kmph to reduce the running time of the trains.
The Chamarajanagar-Mysuru trains are the lifeline of the daily wagers from the rural hinterland as thousands of workers with Izzat pass use the services daily and seek employment in the construction sector.
On the Mysuru-Bengaluru section, the newly completed broad gauge double line 6-km stretch between Mysuru and Naganahalli has a speed limit of 70 kmph at present. It is proposed to increase it to 100 kmph and the tentative date of completing the ballasting work is June 30, 2017, according to railway officials.
The Hassan – Sakleshpur section, with a route length of 42 km, has a sectional speed of 65 kmph and it is proposed to increase it to 70 kmph and this is expected to be cleared once the ballasting works are completed in another two months.
Trains on the Shivamogga Town-Talaguppa sections are also to be speeded up and the current speed limit on the 97-km stretch varies from 50 kmph to 70 kmph between different points. This is to be increased to 70 kmph to 90 kmph for which the proposal has been sent to the higher authorities.

Tirupati passenger has been converted to Express by speeding up 20 mins between MYS and SBC i.e. it will depart 10 mins late from MYS and reach TPTY 10 mins early... But if section speed of MYS and Chamarajanagar is increased.. it can be speeded by 15 more mins

From what I know.... the max speed LPs are allowed to accelerate to....
-
SBC-KGI = 60
KGI-NHY = 100
NHY-MYS = 60
MYS-HAS
...
more...
= 70
HAS-SBGA = 50
SBGA-NMGA = 80
NMGA-BAW = 50
HAS-SKLR = 45
RRB-SMET = 70, but capable of 100.
SMET-TLGP = 60.
UBL-YPR = 100.
-
Of these, I can't understand why the new section tracks inaugurated a few years ago - BAW-NMGA and SBGA-HAS have such low speeds. No proper work has been done in ballasting after inauguration, was what I learnt. Now that new section NMGA-SBGA is high speed, they should look and complete the work, so that BAW-HAS have good uniform speed.

It is 10 mins b/n MYS and SBC and 20 mins b/n MYS-TPTY. My point was from end-end. If MPS of CMNR-MYS section is increased to 90, TPTY Passenger/express can be speeded up almost by 1 hr b/n CMNR and MYS

KARNATAKA Kudla Express finally flagged ofF
The Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Tri-Weekly Kudla Express (16575/16576) was finally flagged off in Mangaluru on Sunday.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu flagged it off via videoconference from Panaji. The programme in Mangaluru was attended by Union Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.

Karnataka by Udupi Rail Yatri Sangha president R.L. Dias. South Western Railway had undertaken before the court to run the train by March 31.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that he had to boycott the Bengaluru-Hassan new line opening ceremony last month in Mangaluru as the Kudla Express was not introduced the same day. He had told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function till the Kudla Express was introduced.
Responding to MLC Ivan D’Souza’s grouse about Mangaluru Central not being made a world-class station, Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that the world-class concept is not followed at present. Instead, Mangaluru has been chosen in the first batch of 400 A1 and A category stations to be upgraded by Railways, he said.
Mr. Prabhu also inaugurated electrification of the rail line between Mangaluru and Chervathur, doubling of line between Jokatte and Panambur, and railway goods siding at Thokur.
Mr. Prabhu also witnessed signing of a loan pact between Konkan Railway and a consortium of lenders comprising State Bank of India and Exim Bank for a loan of Rs. 1,2000 crore.
KRCL will take electrification of its 748 km route network at a cost of Rs. 1,510 crore. While the Centre will provide Rs. 310 crore, the balance will be met through the loan.

Minister promises operation of Kudla Express from Mangaluru Central
Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said that the Indian Railways will strive to respond to development demands from Mangaluru railway region, which, at present, is spread across three Railway Zones.
He was speaking after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu remotely flagged off the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur Kudla Express; launched electrification of Mangaluru-Chervathur line; doubling of Jokatte-Panambur line and a railway siding at Thokur Station, here.
He

is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
Fare
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.

The much awaited train service along the newly laid railway line between Bengaluru (Yeshwantpur) and Hassan will be inaugurated by Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu at 11 am on Sunday. The introduction of Train Number 22679/22680, Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Yeshwantpur Daily Superfast Intercity Express, goes a long way in cutting down travel time for passengers who otherwise had to take trains via Mysuru to reach Hassan and onwards to Mangaluru.

The train has stoppages at Chikkabanavara, Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyuru, BG Nagar, Sravanabelagola and Channarayapatna in both directions.

He says journey time should be reduced by 30-45 mins...Already it's taking 2 hour 35 mins only with speed 63... If you reduce by 45 mins then you can calculate average speed comes to 80+ ... Not even Bangalore Rajdhani has that speed
Secondly I think railway will first check patronage.
If patronage is good then itself it will increase frequency.

Trains are set to chug on the new Chikbanavar-Hassan railway line with the railways setting March 26 as tentative date for the inauguration of the Yeshwantpur-Hassan intercity express.
South Western Railway officials said former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will flag off the train. However, the programme is yet to be finalised.
The direct line will reduce the distance between Bengaluru and Hassan from 259 km (via Arsikere) to 172 km. Work on the line started 19 years ago and the railways missed many deadlines

due to problems associated with land acquisition.
The 179.28 km new line passes through Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur and Shravanabelagola. The project was sanctioned in 1997 when Deve Gowda was prime minister.
In 2010, the state government agreed to share half of the project’s cost to expedite the work. The project took a major step forward after Siddaramaiah succeeded in getting the Kunigal stud farm acquired for laying the track.

Revanna told reporters that the service was scheduled to begin from March 9. As the chief secretary had informed that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would attend the programme, it has been postponed for a few days and would now be held in the third week of March. Siddaramaiah would present the Budget on March 15.
All arrangements have been made for the launch of the service between the two cities. The Hassan-Bengaluru train will depart Hassan at 6 am and reach Bengaluru by 9.30 am.

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.

They may take up few years agree, but not 20 years as that of HAS-YPR new line. Required land for this line was held by liquor baron Vijay Malya for decade, because of his Kunigal Stud farm. Once he went out of India, SWR moved in fast pace acquired pending land and completed it. But where as for CMGR-SKLR line, there are no hurdles and now Railways are also serious and completing many projects at good pace, Hope it would complete soon, as DRU-CMGR line already commissioned.
