Rail activists survey area around KIA Trumpet junction and come up with a plan to link the airport and the city with the suburban railway. All that’s needed is `40 lakh, and the will to create a halt station at the Trumpet junction
The pitch for a halt station at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) is growing louder as many feel that this will be a boon not just for KIA commuters but also for those working at the country’s third busiest airport. As per a recent survey by a group of people, it is estimated that a halt station underneath the Trumpet Flyover can be constructed for Rs 40 lakh and in a shorter duration!
“While
...

a cab takes close to three hours from Electronics City to reach the airport, a train can complete the journey in about an hour. Apart from picking up passengers from dozens of locations, it can do so even during the peak hours. Added to this, the biggest advantage of a train journey would be skipping three major traffic jams:
Central Silk-Board, KR Puram and Hebbal. Now that the airport may be closed from 10-5 and passengers will need to be there a few hours in advance, they would spend seven hours to take a 35-minute flight till Chennai. Or they can take a Shatabdi for faster service!!! So, we surveyed the area around the railway line near Trumpet interchange and found that the best place for an “Airport Halt” was just below the Trumpet as there was ample space for even buses to cross-over for both arriving & departing passengers. Apart from passengers, we also thought about people working at the airport, as they too don’t seem to have affordable options to reach the airport.
We also found another place for an “Airport Halt” almost one km from the Trumpet that even has a road going under the Trumpet-Airport road,” said Narendra Kumar, member of Citizens for Bengaluru.
Sanjeev V Dyamannanavar, a techie, said that providing good mass public transport to KIA is the need of the hour as even after nine years of commissioning of the new airport, there are no alternatives. “Providing a railway halt station on the existing railway track along the airport boundary, for a length of 250 meters, should cost around Rs 40 lakh and can be built in 30 days’ time. This will provide a big relief for airport working staff. Train services can be run from Devanahalli to Yeshwanthpur (36 km), via Yelahanka (24 km) and towards Baiyyappanhalali (40 km).
HALT STATION AT DODDENAKKUNDI LIKELY
Meanwhile, there is also a demand for construction of a halt station at Doddenakkundi which can be a boon for techies heading to Marathalli and
other areas.
Speaking to Mirror, Bengaluru Central MP PC Mohan said he had visited the place and had discussed the proposal with the railway authorities and hoped things may fall in place soon. “If we are thinking of introducing suburban trains in Bengaluru, then we must ensure that there must be a station for every two or three km,” he added.
When contacted, Sanjiv Agarwal, DRM, Bengaluru division, said, “I am unable to comment over the proposal of setting up a railway halt station near KIA as I am neither aware of any such development nor clear about the financing authority. However, the railways is examining the plan in Doddenakundi after PC Mohan agreed to fund the construction of a halt station from his MPLAD funds. Currently, the work is in survey stage and once it gets over, I will be able to speak more on the developments.”

That Bengaluru is bursting at its seams is undeniable. The once-pristine North Bengaluru no more lives in isolation, but to its credit, retains a lot of its charm despite the ravages of ‘development’. Bangalore Mirror today dissects the KSR-Doddaballapur suburban rail route, that can give both worlds the best of each other
