The launch of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services on Monday will pacify those demanding a suburban rail service for now. But the implementation of a complete service to all parts of the city might be delayed as the Union and State governments negotiate the sharing of costs.
With the Railway Ministry reluctant to share half of the cost and the State government insisting upon the same, the conflict has reached a stalemate which will have to be solved on priority for the suburban rail project to be launched in earnest.
With developments like these, the common man tends to loose faith on the governing system. Its high time these "Public representatives" come together to reach a common ground for the upliftment of our city.
Packed with long-distance trains, all its tracks perennially occupied, the city railway station is not everyone’s terminal. The Yeshwantpur station was upgraded to decongest, but is caught up in operational issues. Can a new terminal at Baiyappanahalli be the game-changer?
Bengaluru’s collective, 33-year-old yearning for a suburban rail network has always had a stock response from the Railways and Centre: The tracks are saturated and its stations, space-starved. Can some smart use of available space free up the existing terminals?
For decades, the city station, now named after Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna, with its
Where is the location of new Byappanhalli station is it in between the space of metro rail and ksrtc terminal in kasturinagar or the line towards banaswadi. If its so then it I'll be 1 km away and how I'll it be connected to metro for seemless travel even the road network seems to be lacking. Due to bbmp lacking of proper planning g they have given land to bmrcl for old madras road kasturinagar road is too narrow which should be at least 100 ft with 2.5lanes on both sides.
The call for a suburban railway service for Bengaluru has grown louder, with residents demanding the introduction of a well-connected railway network to ease the traffic woes of the city. Bengaluru is the only major metropolitan city that has no dedicated rail-based mass transit system.
The state government’s proposal to implement the suburban railway service has not translated into reality. Commuters are forced to travel in crowded long-distance trains and a skeletal local train service from Bangarpet, Tumakuru and Mandya to reach places within the city. The citizens’ demand is that the available railway infrastructure be utilised efficiently to implement the suburban rail network.
If CRS is not brought into existence as early, B'luru crowd especially IT will do same. Pulling chains and getting down near Hoodi station. This will also hamper long distance TT
With the kind of political expediency and departmentalism prevalent in IR, it is difficult to expect justice. There is no unified policies and every thing is at disposal of political & bureaucratic Masters.
On one hand IR is bearing losses in thousands of crores on Kolkata Metro and undertaking its expansion projects of about 30000-50000 crores, others cities are struggling to get much smaller favours.
Strategically located railway terminals should be planned for major Indian Cities in line with the ones planned for Delhi. This will ease railway operation, optimise line capacity and at the same time can facilitate Commuters.
Completing the ROB in the outer of YPR which has been pending for years.. will help plan something in terms of infrastructure like adding parking lines and pitlines.
Once the new terminal comes up at BYPL... few long distance trains can be terminated here and connectivity from this terminal to the existing stations as well as bus connectivity to all city areas should be improved... if this is done.. operation of sub urban rail will become much easier in the main routes like SBC to Whitefield, Whitefied to Dodballapur, Whitefield to YPR

The Centre is contemplating setting up an organisation exclusively for developing and implementing rail infrastructure projects in Bengaluru.
Union Chemical and Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar said on Tuesday that a proposal to set up Bengaluru Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprise (B-RIDE) was before the Railway Ministry. He was speaking after the launch of an e-book highlighting the achievements of the Chemicals and Fertilisers Ministry in the last 30 months.
“B-RIDE can focus on rail projects confined to Bengaluru on the lines of Karnataka Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprise (K-RIDE) that looks into feasibility and development of railway projects
Hope 2017 brings Bangalore the much needed Namma Railu and some relief traffic congestion.
Success mainly depends on the active support and participation from state govt. It would have been much better if state govt have taken lead in this matter, as the chances of success would be high in that case.

For lakhs of Bengalureans desperately seeking an escape route from the hyper-congested city roads, a full-fledged commuter rail system continues to be a distant dream. But small steps such as the recently opened Hoodi halt station are reminders that a local train network is the only way out.
Despite grumblings over its location, the halt station is proof that collective people's campaign could potentially help build a sustainable suburban network for the city in the future.
Thousands of IT professionals and labourers are already benefited by the halt station, located between the KR
It's good initiative the public is taking. If the Govt/ Officialdom doesn't wake up, its up to us to give a jolt to these so called public servants to make our city livable.
Agree, with pressure we can bring CRS in Bluru. This is main point in upcoming elections and to decongest capital.
