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
Tirupati Passenger (Express) and many more trains can be speeded up if this is approved
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
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.
Introduction of the train comes after persistent struggle, including filing of a PIL writ petition before the High Court of
1510 crores for 748 Kms. Isn't it 1 cr per Km? Even considering the problems of KR route, isn't the amount high?
Amount appears to be a bit on higher side, may be due to hilly terrain of KR.
748+ Kms.... Include Loop lines & Yards....
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.
Some AC Chair Car Coaches should also be introduced for the comfort of the Passengers
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.
While the inaugural special on Sunday will run from Yeshwantpur to Hassan with open timings, the regular service of this train will commence with effect from March 27. The train has stoppages at Chikkabanavara, Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyuru, BG Nagar, Sravanabelagola and Channarayapatna in both directions.
He just meant multiple runs and not just an up & down run between the cities bro :)
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.
If you take account of passenger traffic via govt & private bus operators & anticipating rush specially due to upcoming festive occasion, Railways must Introduce atleast one more pair of trains with reverse timetable w.r.t current one.
Presently the MPS is 80Kmph, I too doubt how it will stick to its 63Kmph average with an 80Kmph MPS in the section even though there are no crossings.
already its avg speed is 64 .
Any idea where is the inaugural function ? YPR or HAS ?
Tomorrow 11am from YPR. Inaugural train has no timings.
Inaugural function at 11AM at YPR. Newspaper link:click here
No bookings opened for inaugural run. So public won't be allowed to trave?
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.
Similarly on return journey, the train would leave
But suvidha and premiums are temporary trains to clear the crowd for a specific time period we want permanent and daily night train or day reason as this section has patronage throughout the year
They may start up with that, or even they can go for Humsafar.
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.
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.
