A rail link to the airport may soon see light of the day. The suburban rail project to connect Yeshwantpur Railway Station with Kempegowda International Airport is on track, with the Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES) set to submit its feasibility report to the state government soon.
Confirming this, Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain told Express that Yeshwantpur will have an elevated platform to decongest the station for the running of trains. “The existing facility will be modified to run the trains. RITES has also identified a place close to KIA compound for the station,” he said.

added that Yeshwantpur is one among the few stretches identified by the government to introduce suburban rails. “We initially wanted the link from City railway station to Airport. But since the station is very congested, we proposed Yeshwantpur or Yelahanka.
Experts say there is no scope for additional space for platform or line at Yeshwantpur. So, we are looking at the possibility of an elevated platform. Also, we want double, electrified lines to Doddaballapur from here. At present, it is only a single line,’’ Jain said.
Jain said their priority is Yeshwantpur station because it has Metro connectivity. “People commuting in Metro can board suburban trains to KIA from the adjacent Yeshwantpur railway station,’’ he said. When asked about the status, he said it is on track. “We are hoping to take it forward at the earliest,’’ he said.
The funding of the project will be as per the new suburban railway policy, where State and the Central government will share the cost, along with other financial aids. Devanahalli taluk has more than two railway stations, but none of the passenger trains, as of now, stop here. Experts say that Yerthiganahalli station (6kms from KIA) and Trumpet station (3kms from KIA) can be ideal stoppage for the suburban line, for now. The rail connection is expected to lessen the traffic on Ballari Road.
The suburban rail project to connect Yeshwantpur Railway Station with Kempegowda International Airport is on track, with the Rail India Technical and Economic Service set to submit its feasibility report to the state government soon.Prakash Mandoth, member of the zonal railway users’ consultative committee, said, “Ideally, rail connectivity to airport should be from the City central railway station. In 2016, RITES authorities had visited Bengaluru and conducted preliminary inspection. They had met the authorities from South Western Railway and KIA. In fact, they had even identified the land, adjacent to KIA, for the station.”
“We will need inter-model connectivity to airport. Metro will take at least another four years to connect Airport from the city. But with the existing facility, suburban rail connectivity can be made possible within eight to nine months,” he said.He added that not just air-travellers, suburban rail can benefit others, especially the employees working with various airways. “Suburban train can be of a great help to their commuting. Also, air-cargo service can be managed effectively using suburban trains,’’ Mandoth said.

The Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), an arm of the state government, has engaged RITES, a Government of India entity, to prepare a feasibility report on upgrading rail infrastructure between the Kempegowda international airport (KIA) and the Yesvantpur railway station.
This is one of the many options the government is looking at to ease the pressure off the Ballari Road and improve connectivity from other directions to the airport.
The study would look into the ways to improve existing infrastructure by building a new line and electrification of the entire stretch. “We

have asked RITES to do the study and give us the report in 10 weeks,“ DULT Commissioner Darpan Jain told ET.
In the map of Bengaluru's suburban railway network, the stretch up to the airport is one of the most neglected railway lines along with the Yesvantpur-Hosur line via Hebbal.Both are single lines and not electrified despite several demands to upgrade them. Although the Yesvantpur-Yelahanka line (roughly about 14 km) is doubled and electrified, it is congested. The stretch from Yelahanka to the trumpet flyover near the airport and Devanahalli is a single line and not electrified.
“The feasibility report will study the best options to improve airport connectivity . It includes building a third line up to Yelahanka either elevated or at surface level, depending on the availability of space. The report will also survey the passenger demand and future requirement of train services,“ Jain explained.
“There is no plan to divert from the existing line as it is close to the airport. We will integrate stations with another public mode of transport wherever possible, including with the Metro at Yesvantpur railway station,“ he said.
Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, Urban Development Department, said the project would be implemented through the special purpose vehicle as mandated by the Indian Railways in the suburban railway policy. “The state has given prior ity to upgrade railway connectivity to the airport. We will examine ways to fund the project,“ said.
According to the policy, the state and the Union governments should share 20% each of the project cost while the remaining 60% should be raised through borrowings.
Commuter rail activist Sanjeev Dyamannavar said the purpose of building a suburban rail system would be meaningless if the new line is not brought close to the airport. “The existing line is away from the airport. The feasibility study should look at the possibility of diverting the line after Doddajala and bring it close to the terminal before connecting it to the Devanahalli railway station,“ he said.

Line is already present, just double it till Devanahalli from Yelhanka and they should construct a halt station ('Yerthiganahalli'/'Udayagiri') near Anjaneya temple beside trumpet flyover and provide shuttle bus services to and from airport ~4 km, that's over. There is no strong will from govt, otherwise this would have been reality today.

The extension of 06579/80 Yesvantapur-Visakhapatnam-Yesvantapur weekly special Express, operated by the South Western Railway (SWR), though belated, came as a great relief for thousands of rail users from Visakhapatnam, employed in the ‘Silicon Valley of India’.
A report on ‘need for extension of the train’ appeared in The Hindu on Sept 29, last day of the 06579. Extension was announced by SWR on the same day.
The special train was launched by SWR, based on representations received from Telugus living in Bengaluru in January 2015. Rail users are, however, worried on the naming

of the weekly special as Pooja/Diwali Special train from Oct 6 to Nov 26 for only eight trips.
They were also sceptical of extension of the train as train no. 08301/02 Sambalpur-Banawadi (Bengaluru) weekly special, operated by the East Coast Railway (ECoR), has been extended till December 28.
The rail users seek regularisation of this train as it is the only originating train from Visakhapatnam to Bengaluru.
The last minute change of platform of Ratnchal Express at Duvvada Railway Station has caused confusion and hardship to passengers, especially senior citizens, returning to their native places after Dasara, on Sunday.
The passengers awaited the arrival of the Ratnachal Express on PF-1 at Duvvada as usual on Sunday. The scheduled time of the train at Duvvada was 1.10 p.m. Passengers were worried as a goods train was parked on PF-1 and no announcement on clearing of the track or change of platform for Ratnachal was made by the railway authorities.
Maturi Srinivasa Rao, president of the Duvvada Railway User’s Association, who was travelling with his family members, went to the enquiry counter and checked with the staff there. He was told that the platform would be cleared and Ratnachal would be taken on PF-1 as usual.
A few minutes before the arrival of the train, an announcement was made on the public address system that Ratnachal would arrive on PF-4. The passengers had to carry luggage up and down the stairs as there was no ramp type FOB connecting PF-1 to PF-4.
South Central Railway (SCR) operating special trains from Kakinada to Secunderabad and Tirupati and E Co R not running special trains, based on demand, is an indication of ‘lack of coordination’ between the two railway zones, says Duvvada Railway User’s Association secretary K. Eswar.

06579/80 YPR-VSKP is a tatkal fare special and IR is collecting about 30% extra fare over normal fare. That is why it is not being made a regular train with normal fare.
