The Baiyappanahalli-Hosur railway line, which passes through major software and technology firms, is also the most neglected and under-developed line in the suburban rail map of Bengaluru. The Railways has come up with a piecemeal solution: the electrification of the 45-km line. The proposal for doubling the line, however, still remains a dream.
Last week, the Rail Vikas Nigam, a government of India enterprise, floated tenders for the electrification of the Baiyappanahalli-Omalur (via Hosur) single-line section, including civil engineering, signalling and telecommunication works. The project, estimated to cost Rs 157.23 crore, is expected to be completed in two years.

electrification, the doubling of the Hosur line from Lottegollahalli (via Baiyappanahalli) was a longpending demand. This is because almost all key roads are witnessing dense traffic while the completion of Metro project to Electronic City and Bommasandra from RV Road is at least four years away.
In a mark of protest against the delay in suburban services, angry passengers who travel between Yeshwantpur and Hosur had staged flash protests and blocked trains twice in the past. They pointed out that the trains were running late at least by 45 minutes daily, affecting their work.
In all, the South Western Railway runs 10 trains and serves 5,000 people daily, though the stretch has the potential to attract more crowd, given its proximity to industrial areas and IT firms in Bellandur, Heelalige, Carmelaram and Anekal.
Sanjeev Dyamannavar, who is campaigning for the suburban rail system, blamed both the State and Central governments for not taking least interest in addressing commuter issues. "Despite several requests for doubling the Yeshwantpur-Hosur line, we are still made to wait. It's only the stretch that caters to multiple segments from techies to employees who work in industries," he said.
"The Railways, if it does not have money to fund the project, should at least introduce innovative ways to fast-track important projects. The policies are so rigid that there are not many instances where private companies come forward to share corporate social responsibility (CSR) funds to improve rail infrastructure," Dyamannavar noted.
Ashok Gupta, chief administrative officer (construction) SWR, too hopes the Railways would include doubling of the Yeshwantpur-Hosur line in the upcoming budget. "We have sent the proposal to the Railway Board. The 48-km doubling project would roughly cost Rs 475 crore," he said.
NS Rama, CEO of Electronics City Industries Association, said she would write a letter to the elected representatives and railway officials to fast-rack the doubling and electrification of the line. "A lot of employees here depend on trains and some companies are offering shuttle services from and to the Heelalige railway station which is close to Electronics City. With the Metro work, traffic congestion is going to increase. We will push for additional infrastructure facility," she said.

BENGALURU: Top officials of the South Western Railway Zone (SWR) were pulled up by a parliamentary delegation for the slow completion of various projects in the Zone.
The five-member Railway Convention Committee delegation comprised Nana Falgunrao Patole (Bhandra Gondiya), K Ashok Kumar (Krishnagiri), Rahul Ramesh Shewale (Mumbai South), Bhartruhari Mahtab (Cuttack) and Kamalbhan Singh Marabi (Chhattisgarh), informed a top railway official from New Delhi. Mahtab chaired the delegation. SWR officials refused to divulge details stating it was “a confidential and closed door meeting.”

last week, Ashok Kumar said, “The chairman felt that many railway projects in SWR were getting delayed for long and sought the reasons for it. He instructed officials to implement them faster.” They were also told to have bio-toilets in all the trains within three years (by 2020).
Insisting that passenger amenities across the Zone be improved, the team insisted adequate care be taken to ensure bed sheets, blankets and pillow covers are cleaned well in Ist and IInd AC compartments, he said. “Officials were told to ensure two dustbins in these compartments,” Kumar said.
The MP sought to know why work was yet to begin on an underpass between Hosur and Thally Road. “Work was sanctioned and funds also allocated but there is no sign of any movement on this,” he said.
“Public are forced to wait nearly half-an-hour daily at a level crossing gate between the two stations,” he said.
When asked about it, a top railway official said that the land had to be handed over to it by the Public Works Department in Tamil Nadu. It is because of the delay on their part that the work could not be undertaken. Kumar also called for completion of numerous other projects in his constituency, a portion of which falls under the Bengaluru Railway Division.
“Electrification between Anekal Road and Omalur has been allocated 590 crores, but is not done yet,” he pointed out.
He also said a passenger had to buy a ticket at one end of Royakottai and walk along a foot over bridge to board the train at another end. The platform at Kelamangalam station was very low, causing inconvenience to the passengers.
