Harihara - Kotturu - Hosapete Line Info Update.
Station: Kotturu.
line was inaugurated for passenger traffic in 2014 from Harihara to Kotturu. But the section from Kotturu to Hosapete Junction was open for only goods traffic due to gradient problem.
The gradient work is now over, also the problem with high tension wire. Some work related to signalling (at MMI) and some PF construction work is pending along some stations on the route. It's not clear when (if at all) this line will be opened for passenger trains. But 1 or 2 Goods trains do ply on this route everyday.
Some pics and info of this station, I visited yesterday.
Name: Kotturu.
No of PFs: 2, 1 Mainline and 1 more for loading of Goods.
Address: Kotturu Town, Kudligi Taluk, Ballari District, Karnataka. Pin Code: 583134.
Signalling: Towards Harihara, it is complete (Pic 3).
The info given here is what I could gather to the best of my ability.

I fully agree with your views. Because of Sri Kharge we got ypr-bidar exp,22133/34 daily and ubl-gr-sc exp. He should have become RM much earlier.

Yes sir, also the morning train from Tumakuru to Bengaluru for office users. The daily commuters of that train even celebrate the anniversary of that passenger.
Chikkamagaluru line opening, Kolar to Yelahanka line opening too. If he had had a few more months, he would have given the necessary fillip to the underdeveloped regions of Hyderabad-Karnatak region.

Yes, there are no problems with wires just some construction work of intermediate stations remains was what I learnt there.
But maybe like sir told in the first reply /blog/post/2131747 there maybe more wires where the work is left.
