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....
Scripting a major milestone in the annals of the over-a-century-old rail line between the 307-km-long Mangalore and Shoranur junction, the Southern Railway has virtually given the green signal to run electric locomotives on the remaining 84-km-long stretch between Charvathur and Mangalore Central stations.
The Railways in all probability would operate the electric locomotive by March-end, up to Mangaluru. A team of senior Railway officials led by Bengaluru-based Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), Southern Circle, K.A. Manoharan carried out a detailed inspection of the newly electrified railway section on Saturday.
The team left Mangaluru

As part of Digital India, the Railways have started the process of providing Wi-Fi connectivity at the major railway stations in the country. The facility started working at the Mangaluru Central Railway Station on September 10, and at Kozhikode on September 29. Mangaluru Junction Station would get the facility under Phase 2 of the project.
