New Delhi: With the Hospet-Hubli-Londa-Vasco and Bangalore-Hubli track doubling projects already in progress, the cabinet committee on economic affairs chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently gave its approval for doubling of Pune-Miraj-Londa railway line project at an estimated cost of 3,627.47 crore. The estimated completion cost has been pegged at 4,246.84 crore with 5% escalation per annum.
The project was necessitated in view of anticipation of tremendous increase in traffic over the Miraj-Londa section once the doubling of Bangalore-Hubli and Hospet-Vasco-da-Gama tracks get completed.

know told, has already prepared work orders of 242 crore to build bridges and other land works over a stretch of 175 km.
The project is being carried out jointly by CR and South Western Railway as Pune-Miraj section is within CR’s limits and Miraj-Londa stretch is in SWR’s jurisdiction. Actual work on the ground is expected to start by the year’s latter half.
A source said the project is likely to take 6-8 years for completion in view of the large tracts of land that require to be acquired for the project.
The railway ministry had allotted 206.70 crore for the project in 2015-16 and has allotted Rs 325 crore in 2016-17. The total cost of the project is 4,670 crore, which comes to Rs 10 crore per kilometre of work. While 125 crore of this total cost will be borne by the Indian Railways, the lion’s share, 4,545 crore, will be pooled in from institutional financiers, possibly the Life Insurance Corporation of India, sources said.
The doubling of the Pune-Miraj-Londa line will lead to enhancement of the transport capacity of industries in and around Miraj-Londa section. The work on Hospet-Hubli-Londa-Tinaighat section (245 km) is being taken up under phase one at an estimated cost of 928.85 crore and is expected to be done by 2018.
The doubling of the track will facilitate movement of imported coal from Mormugao Port to steel industries and thermal power plants at Jewargi in Gulbarga district, and thermal expansion phase two in Bellary, Karnataka.

Railway projects worth Rs 10,736 crore were cleared by the government today for improving infrastructure in various states, including Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat that go to polls next year.
The projects, including three for doubling of existing rail lines and two for laying a third rail line on busy routes, were cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) at its meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I am happy to say that the CCEA has approved projects worth Rs 10,736 crore for doubling and tripling (of railway lines). There are

a total of five new projects, three doubling projects for 763 kms and two third line projects for 514 kms.
“The benefit of these projects obviously will go to several states but two important states will benefit immensely, one is Gujarat and the other is Uttar Pradesh,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said at a press conference after the meeting.
Providing details of the projects, he said, in Gujarat the CCEA has given approval for doubling of Surendranagar-Rajkot project at an estimated cost of Rs 1,002.39 crore with expected completion cost of Rs 1,137.17 crore with 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 116.17 kms. The completion period of the project will be four years.
“It is a major push to Gujarat’s industrialisation ability,” he said.
He said the doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic between Okha-Rajkot, Porbandar-Kanalus, Veraval-Rajkot and Maliya Maiyana – Navalakhi-Dahinsara-Wankaner sections.
In UP, he said the doubling of Roza-Sitapur Cantt-Burhwal broad gauge single line project has been approved at an estimated cost of Rs 1,295.42 crore with expected completion cost of Rs 1,486.46 crore with 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 180.77 kms. The completion period of the project will be five years.
The doubling of this line between Burhwal junction and Roza junction will fulfill the demand of the increasing traffic leading to socio-economic development of the area. Besides, there will be continuous double line track available from Gorakhpur to Delhi via Sitapur Cantonment and Moradabad. Barabanki and Sitapur districts of UP would also be benefited through this project.
Prabhu said the CCEA also gave its nod for doubling of Pune-Miraj-Londa railway line in Maharashtra at an estimated cost of Rs 3,627.47 crore and expected completion cost of Rs 4,246.84 crore in five years keeping in view the 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 467 kms.
Besides the travelling people, industries in and around Miraj-Londa section will have additional transport capacity to meet their requirements.
Doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic on the Pune-Miraj-Londa section thereby increasing the revenue of the Railways, a railway ministry statement said.
The Pune-Miraj section is non-electrified single line on diesel traction and it is oversaturated.
“The additional traffic running over and above 100 per cent of utilisation is proposed to be diverted on the proposed doubling. The doubling of the section would come as an advantage as it would strengthen the rail network necessary to operate more passenger trains with increased speed and better efficiency,” it said.
Prabhu said the CCEA also granted approval for the Vizianagaram and Titlagarh third line project at an estimated cost of Rs 2,335.68 crore. The length of the railway line will be 264.6 kms. The completion period of the project will be five years.
The third line is an alternative route to the over-burdened existing line and this link will also open an alternative route to oversaturated Kharagpur–Jharsuguda section Howrah-Mumbai Grand Trunk Route and Howrah-Chennai section main line of East Coast Railways.
Rayagada and Kalahandi districts of Odisha and Vizianagaram and Babbili districts of Andhra Pradesh will benefit from this project.
The section is oversaturated with present capacity utilisation of 106 per cent and there is a huge detention to rolling stock.
The Bina-Katni third line project under West Central Railway (WCR) was also approved at an estimated cost of Rs 2,478.23 crore and expected completion cost of Rs 2,917.06 crore in five years. The line will be 278.7 kms long.
Besides facilitating passenger travel, the thermal power plants in the area will get a third line for transportation.
It will also greatly ease the ever-increasing freight traffic between Bina-Katni section increasing the railways’ earnings. Sagar, Damoh and Katni districts of Madhya Pradesh will benefit from this project, the ministry said.
The Bina-Katni is critical and busy section of WCR serving coal rakes for thermal power plants at Chhabra Gugur and Jhalawar in Rajasthan and paints, oils and lubricants (POL) traffic for Mahadevkhedi in Madhya Pradesh. At present, the capacity utilisation of the section is 136 per cent, the statement said.
Asked if the approved projects had been accounted for in the Rail Budget, Prabhu said, “Most of them are a mix, but some projects mentioned are with trans-budgetary support and some with extra-budgetary support.”
The completion of these projects, he said, will be between three to five years but the time limits given are outer limits and the government will be able to complete the projects earlier.

नवीदिल्ली/सांगली/मिरज : रेल्वे अर्थसंकल्पात घोषणा करण्यात आलेल्या पुणे-मिरज-लोंढा या ४६७ किलोमीटर मार्गाच्या दुहेरीकरणाच्या कामासाठी तीन हजार ६२७ कोटी रुपये खर्चाला केंद्रीय मंत्रिमंडळाच्या आर्थिक व्यवहार समितीने बुधवारी मान्यता दिली. मिरज-पुणे दुहेरीकरणाच्या कामाची निविदा काढण्यात आल्याने दुहेरीकरणाच्या कामास प्रत्यक्ष सुरुवात होणार आहे. मिरज-पुणे रेल्वे मार्गाच्या दुहेरीकरण व विद्युतीकरणामुळे मिरजेतून केवळ चार तासांत पुण्याला पोहोचता येणार आहे.
मिरज-पुणे मार्गावर धावणाऱ्या रेल्वेगाड्यांच्या संख्येत तिपटीने वाढ झाल्याने या मार्गाचे दुहेरीकरण व विद्युतीकरण पूर्ण झाल्यास मिरजेतून पुणे, मुंबई प्रवास जलद व सोयीचा होणार आहे. लोंढा-मिरज-पुणे या मार्गाच्या दुहेरीकरणाची अनेक वर्षांची मागणी आहे. यावर्षीच्या रेल्वे अर्थसंकल्पात दुहेरीकरण व विद्युतीकरणाच्या कामासाठी अर्थिक तरतूद करण्यात आल्याने कामास गती मिळाली आहे. त्यानुसार मध्य रेल्वेने पुणे ते मिरज दरम्यान दुहेरीकरणाच्या कामाची तीन टप्प्यात निविदा प्रसिद्ध केली असून तीन वर्षांत हे काम पूर्ण करण्याचे

उद्दिष्ट आहे. यापूर्वी लोंढा ते मिरज या १९० किलोमीटर लांबीच्या दुहेरीकरणाच्या कामाची निविदा दक्षिण-पश्चिम रेल्वेने काढली आहे. लोंढा-मिरज-पुणे या दुहेरीकरणासाठी ३ हजार ६२७ कोटी रूपये खर्चास बुधवारी केंद्रीय मंत्रिमंडळाची मान्यता मिळाल्याने दुहेरीकरणाचे काम प्रत्यक्षात सुरू होणार आहे.
या मार्गाचे दुहेरीकरण पूर्ण झाल्यानंतर विद्युतीकरणाच्या कामाची स्वतंत्र निविदा काढण्यात येणार आहे. यावर्षीच्या रेल्वे अंदाजपत्रकात कोल्हापूर- मिरज- पुणे या २८० किलोमीटर लांबीच्या रेल्वेमार्गाच्या विद्युतीकरणासाठी ३२६ कोटी रूपये व मिरज-लोंढा या १८९ किलोमीटर रेल्वेमार्गाच्या विद्युतीकरणासाठी २०८ कोटीची तरतूद करण्यात आली आहे.
मिरज-पुणे मार्गाचे दुहेरीकरण व विद्युतीकरण झाल्यानंतर रेल्वेगाड्यांच्या संख्येत आणखी वाढ होणार आहे. सांगली व कोल्हापूर जिल्'ातून मुंबईला जाणाऱ्या प्रवाशांची संख्या मोठी असतानाही गेल्या चाळीस वर्षात महालक्ष्मी, सह्याद्री व कोयना या तीनच एक्सप्रेस प्रवाशांसाठी उपलब्ध आहेत.
रेल्वे अर्थसंकल्पात घोषणा करण्यात आलेल्या हमसफर, तेजस व उदय या नावाने सुरू करण्यात येणाऱ्या वातानुकूलित व सुपरफास्ट
एक्स्प्रेस कोल्हापूर-मिरज- मुंबई मार्गावर सुरु करण्याची प्रवाशांची मागणी आहे.
असे होणार दुपदरीकरण
पुणे-मिरज-लोंढा मार्ग एकूण ४६७ किलोमीटरचा आहे. याच्या दुपदरीकरणासाठी पाच वर्षांचा कालावधी गृहीत धरण्यात आला असून, एकूण खर्च ३ हजार ६२७ कोटी ४७ लाख रुपये अपेक्षित आहे. प्रतिवर्षी पाच टक्के साहित्य दराच्या वाढीचा विचार करून हा खर्च ४ हजार २४६ कोटी ८४ लाख गृहीत धरला आहे.
कऱ्हाड-चिपळूण
रेल्वेमार्गाची प्रतीक्षा
कऱ्हाड-चिपळूण व कोल्हापूर-वैभववाडी या नवीन रेल्वेमार्गाचे अद्याप सर्वेक्षण सुरू आहे. नवीन रेल्वेमार्गामुळे पश्चिम महाराष्ट्र कोकणला जोडला जाणार असल्याने कोकणाला जोडणाऱ्या नवीन रेल्वेमार्गाची प्रतीक्षा सुरू आहे.
अनेक वर्षांपासून प्रलंबित असलेल्या या मार्गाच्या दुपदरीकरणासाठी आम्ही सातत्याने पाठपुरावा करीत होतो. प्रभू यांच्याशी यासंदर्भात चर्चा झाली होती. या मार्गाचा फायदा पश्चिम महाराष्ट्रासह कर्नाटक, गोवा या राज्यातील प्रवाशांना होणार आहे. मिरज-लोंढा मार्गावर सांगली, कऱ्हाड आणि सातारा ही महत्त्वाची स्थानके आहेत.

The ambitious 467-km-long Pune-Miraj-Londa double line project has gotten a huge boost with Central Railway's (CR's) construction department readying work orders of Rs242 crore to build bridges and other land works over a stretch of 175km. The project is being carried out jointly by CR and South Western Railway (SWR) because the Pune-Miraj section is within CR's limits and the Miraj-Londa stretch is in SWR's jurisdiction. Firms vying for these works will be chosen by May and the physical work on the ground is expected to start by the latter half of the year.
The project, which will increase railway connectivity between the southern part of the country and Maharashtra, is being given a healthy emphasis by the railway ministry as well

as the state government. Officials said that robust allotments to the project, as has been the case for the past two financial years, could see parts of it being commissioned by the middle of 2019, which is a poll year for both the state and the Centre.
The railway ministry had allotted Rs206.7 crore for the project for the financial year 2015-16 and has allotted Rs325 crore for the new year, i.e. 2016-17. The total cost of the project is Rs4,670 crore, which comes to Rs10 crore per kilometre of work. While Rs125 crore of this total cost will come from the railway's kitty, the lion's share — Rs 4,545 crore — will be pooled in from institutional financiers, possibly the Life Insurance Corporation of India.
The final location survey of the 280-km route between Pune and Miraj was completed by CR by late last year and officials said the fact that work orders have been readied as early as April is a good sign.
"The entire work might take anything between six to eight years because there is a considerable amount of land that needs to be acquired. However, even by commissioning patches of the route in the next three years, the gains from the project will be very high," said a senior CR official.
The Pune-Miraj-Londa line, along with the Ahmednagar-Beed-Parli line, are the two projects which both the state government and the railway ministry are pursuing with vigour as both projects have the potential to vastly improve railway commuting in Maharashtra, and also give political dividends to the ruling BJP.

पुणे - पुणे-मिरज-लोंढा लोहमार्गाच्या दुहेरीकरणासाठी (डबल ट्रॅक) केंद्राने 325 कोटी रुपये अर्थसंकल्पात मंजूर केले. मात्र, या प्रकल्पाचा अंदाजित खर्च 3,627 कोटी रुपये आहे. पुढील सात वर्षांमध्ये हा प्रकल्प पूर्ण करायचा आहे. मात्र, प्रकल्पाचा अंतिम अहवाल (लोकेशन सर्व्हे रिपोर्ट) केंद्राकडे गेल्यानंतर वेगाने हालचाली झाल्यास वेळेत प्रकल्प कार्यान्वित होईल; अन्यथा प्रकल्पाचा अंदाजित खर्च वाढण्याची शक्‍यताही नाकारता येत नाही, असे मध्य रेल्वेच्या सूत्रांनी सांगितले.
पुणे-मिरज-लोंढा हा एकूण 467 किलोमीटरचा लोहमार्ग आहे. त्यापैकी पुणे-मिरज 280 किमी व मिरज-लोंढा 187 किमीचा मार्ग आहे. मिरज-लोंढा या मार्गामध्ये अनेक ठिकाणी डोंगरी भाग आहे. या मार्गांची पाहणी करून मध्य रेल्वेने 2014-15 मध्ये केंद्राकडे सर्वेक्षण अहवाल पाठविला होता. त्या अनुषंगाने केंद्राने यंदाच्या अर्थसंकल्पात या मार्गाकरिता हिरवा कंदील दाखविला.

घोरपडी, फुरसुंगी, सासवड, जेजुरी, नीरा, लोणंद, वाठार, कोरेगाव, सातारा, कराड, सांगली, मिरजपर्यंत साधारणतः छत्तीस; तर मिरज ते लोंढापर्यंत सतरा लहान-मोठी स्थानके आहेत. सध्या या मार्गावर एकेरी लोहमार्ग आहे. त्यामुळे गाड्यांच्या येण्या-जाण्याच्या वेळेमध्ये अनेकदा बदल होतो. परिणामी गाड्या उशिराने धावत असल्याने प्रवाशांचे हाल होतात.
या मार्गावरून धावणाऱ्या गाड्यांना पहिली गाडी पुढे जाईपर्यंत काही स्थानकांवर प्रतीक्षा करावी लागते. परंतु आता वेगवेगळ्या मार्गांवरून येणाऱ्या गाड्यांची संख्या आणि प्रवासी संख्येत वाढ होऊ लागली आहे. त्यामुळे या मार्गाचे दुहेरीकरण करण्याची मागणी अनेक वर्षांपासून प्रलंबित होती. या लोहमार्गावर एकूण 69 उड्डाण पूल बांधावे लागणार आहेत. मिरज-लोंढादरम्यान मोठे 17, तर छोटे 328 पूल बांधावे लागतील.
पुणे-मिरजदरम्यान 20 पूल प्रस्तावित
लोहमार्गाच्या खालून पुणे-मिरजपर्यंत वीस व मिरज-लोंढापर्यंत दहा पूल प्रस्तावित आहेत. पुणे-मिरजपर्यंतचे काम मध्य रेल्वेतर्फे, तर मिरज-लोंढापर्यंतचे काम दक्षिण-मध्य रेल्वे विभागामार्फत होणार आहे. मात्र, केंद्राकडून वेगाने हालचाली झाल्या, तर प्रकल्प दिलेल्या मुदतीत पूर्ण होऊ शकतो, असेही रेल्वेच्या सूत्रांनी सांगितले.

Baddowal to be developed as major logistic station for decongesting Ludhiana railway station. A new water wastage treatment plant will be established at the Ludhiana railways station at the cost of Rs 70 crores.
In addition, a solar power plant will be installed at cost of Rs 10 cores to save on the costs of electricity. Ludhiana is one of thirty stations where these projects will be introduced by railways.

K Puthia, General Manager, Northern Railway, who visited city railway station on Wednesday. For decongestion purposes in Ludhiana, the railway station and for making the loading and unloading of goods easy, the railway has developed Baddowal as a major logistic station. Puthia also visited the Doraha and Sanhewal railway stations and interacted with railway officials.
The visit by Puthia kept the railways officials on their toes starting early in the morning. AK Puthia said that a long pending demand for escalators will be fulfilled soon and that they will be installed. Industrialists claim that Ludhiana has a disadvantage since they don’t have any seaport in the city due to its natural geography.
However, through railway the freight charges these problems can be reduced manyfold, which can make industries in Ludhiana far more competitive cost wise. The railway is planning to introduce door-to-door services to deliver goods containers for the industrialists soon. The idea was floated by the Chamber of Indu trial and Commercial Undertakings (CICU) members in a meeting convened by divisional railway manager (DRM), Ferozepur Division, Anuj Prakash,in month of June.
Even the CICU has given the suggestion to introduce service of door-to-door delivery of goods container, which will save time as well as money. Under this new plan, proper ceiling of containers to protect theft or damage of goods during transportation among others will be done.
CICU will prepare a database of the industrialists who are ready to use door-to-door delivery of goods container services. CICU has 1,100 direct members and by including all 28 associations affiliated to it, that comes around 10,000 members. Puthia explained, “Railway can play an important role in the uplift of industry, which is largely dependent on goods transportation through tracks. Introduction of dedicated freight corridor will also benefit us, which is a long-pending demand.”

ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು: ಬೆಳಗಾವಿ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಯ ಖಾನಾ ಪುರ ಅರಣ್ಯದ ಮೂಲಕ ಸಾಗುವ ರೈಲು ಮಾರ್ಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿರುವ ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿಗಳ ಸಾವಿನ ಪ್ರಕರಣಗಳನ್ನು ತಡೆಗಟ್ಟುವ ಸಲುವಾಗಿ ಅವುಗಳು ಸುರಕ್ಷಿತವಾಗಿ ಹಳಿ ದಾಟಲು ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಮಾಡಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಪ್ರಿಯರು ಆಗ್ರಹಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಮಾರ್ಚ್ 29ರಂದು ಧಾರವಾಡ-, ಅಳ್ನಾವರ,-ಲೋಂಡಾ,-ಬೆಳಗಾವಿ ಮಾರ್ಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಹಾದು ಹೋಗುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ರೈಲೊಂದು ಲೋಂಡಾ ವಲಯದ ಮೋಹಿಶೇತ್ ಎಂಬಲ್ಲಿ ಹತ್ತು ವರ್ಷದ ಗಂಡು ಕಾಡುಕೋಣವೊಂದಕ್ಕೆ ಡಿಕ್ಕಿ ಹೊಡೆದಿತ್ತು. ಅದು ಸ್ಥಳದಲ್ಲೇ ಮೃತಪಟ್ಟಿತ್ತು.
ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿಗಳ ಸಾವಿನ ಘಟನೆ ಈ ಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾಮೂಲು ಎನಿಸಿದೆ.
ಕಳೆದ ವರ್ಷ ಫೆಬ್ರುವರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಇದೇ ಸ್ಥಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಡುಕೋಣ ರೈಲಿಗೆ ಸಿಲುಕಿ ಮೃತ ಪಟ್ಟಿತ್ತು.

ಅದೇ ವರ್ಷ ಡಿಸೆಂಬರ್‌ನಲ್ಲಿ ಧಾರವಾಡ ನಗರಕ್ಕೆ ತೀರ ಸನಿಹದಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತೊಂದು ಕಾಡುಕೋಣ ಸಹ ಅಪಘಾತದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಾಣ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡಿತ್ತು ಎಂದು ನೆನೆಯುತ್ತಾರೆ ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಪ್ರೇಮಿ ಗಿರಿಧರ ಕುಲಕರ್ಣಿ.
ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಸಂರಕ್ಷಣಾ ಕಾಯಿದೆ ಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಟಿ (ಕಾಡುಕೋಣ)ಯನ್ನು ಶೆಡ್ಯೂಲ್ 1ರಲ್ಲಿ ಸೇರಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಹುಲಿ, ಚಿರತೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಕೆನ್ನಾಯಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಅದು ಪ್ರಮುಖ ಬಲಿ ಪ್ರಾಣಿಯಾಗಿದೆ. ಘಟನೆ ನಡೆದ ಸ್ಥಳವು ಶರಾವತಿ, ದಾಂಡೇಲಿ, ಖಾನಾಪುರ ಹುಲಿ ಅವಾಸಸ್ಥಾನದ ಭಾಗವಾಗಿದ್ದು ಪ್ರಮುಖ ಆನೆ ಕಾರಿಡಾರ್ ಸಹ ಆಗಿದೆ. ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿಗಳು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ವಾಗಿ ಹಳಿ ದಾಟುವ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳನ್ನು ಗುರು ತಿಸಿ ಇಂತಹ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ರೈಲುಗಳ ವೇಗ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಸೂಚನೆ ನೀಡ ಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಗಿರಿಧರ ಸಲಹೆ ನೀಡುತ್ತಾರೆ.
ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿಗಳು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಹಳಿ ದಾಟುವ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಅರಣ್ಯ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿಯನ್ನು ನಿಯೋಜಿಸಿ ಅವು ಹಳಿ ದಾಟುವ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಿ ತಕ್ಷಣ ರೈಲು ನಿಯಂತ್ರಣ ಕೊಠಡಿಗೆ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟರೆ ಅವರು ಚಾಲಕರಿಗೆ ಮುಂಚಿತವಾಗಿಯೇ ಸೂಚನೆ ಕೊಟ್ಟು ರೈಲಿನ ವೇಗ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಆಗುವಂತೆ ನೋಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯ ಎಂದು ಅವರು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾರೆ.
ಹಳಿಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಸುತ್ತಮುತ್ತ ಲಿನ ಪ್ರದೇಶಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಆಹಾರ ಪದಾರ್ಥ ಗಳನ್ನು ಎಸೆಯು ವುದರಿಂದ ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಗಳು ಆಕರ್ಷಿತ ಗೊಂಡು ತಿನ್ನಲು ಬಂದಾಗ ರೈಲಿಗೆ ಸಿಲುಕಿ ಸಾವನ್ನಪ್ಪುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆ ಇದೆ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರು ಹಾಗೂ ರೈಲಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಆಹಾರ ಮಾರುವ ಸಿಬ್ಬಂದಿಗೆ ಆಹಾರ ಪದಾರ್ಥ ಎಸೆಯ ದಂತೆ ತಿಳುವಳಿಕೆ ನೀಡಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ವಿವರಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ.
ಹೊಸಪೇಟೆ-–ತಿನೈಘಾಟ್ ರೈಲು ಮಾರ್ಗದ ದ್ವಿಪಥ ಅಳವಡಿಸುವ ಕಾಮಗಾರಿ ನಡೆದಿದ್ದು ಈ ಮಾರ್ಗದಲ್ಲೇ ಎಲ್ಲ ನಾಲ್ಕೂ ಕಾಡುಕೋಣಗಳು ಮೃತಪಟ್ಟಿವೆ. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ಅರಣ್ಯ ಇಲಾಖೆ ತಕ್ಷಣ ಎಚ್ಚೆತ್ತುಕೊಂಡು ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿಗಳ ಸುರಕ್ಷತೆಗೆ ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆ ಜತೆ ಕ್ರಮ ಕೈಗೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಅಗತ್ಯವಾಗಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಅವರು ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯಪಡುತ್ತಾರೆ.
