Rs. 20 cr. project to revamp Mysuru Railway Station: MP
Mysuru: For Mysureans, this Sankranti Gift will be a gift to remember. While the extension of Chennai-Mysuru-Chennai Express to Mysuru and Hubballi-Mysuru-Hubballi Vishwamanava Express to Ashokapuram came as good news for thousands of train travellers, the news of Mysuru City Railway Station being revamped at a cost of Rs. 20 crore brought in more cheers.
While flagging off the Vishwamanava Express that will henceforth start from Ashokapuram, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha said at Ashokapuram Railway Station this morning that the Mysuru Railway
Station will be revamped at a cost of Rs. 20 crore and the foundation stone for the renovation will be laid in a couple of days. “The Station will be beautified and more passenger amenities will be added,” he said.
The Ashokapuram Railway Station was constructed in 1891 and from 1924, the tests for meter-gauge trains began. “Today, Ashokapuram Station, around 5 kms from Mysuru Railway Station, is prominently present on the Railway map with thousands of passengers coming here for their journey,” he said.
Pratap Simha said that as an MP he had strived for the improvement of road, rail and air projects in Mysuru region and was successful in bringing many projects. “In the past five years, five new trains from Mysuru to Bengaluru including Bi-Weekly train service to Varanasi, Vishwamanava Express, Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) train, Chennai-KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Express to Mysuru, Mysuru-Udaipur have been introduced.
Around 30,000 people commute by trains every day in the city. The Chennai-KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Express train service will be very useful to the passengers who travel to Bengaluru in the early morning as super fast express train will depart Mysuru Railway Station at 4.45 am and reach Chennai by 2.30 pm, via Bengaluru, he said.
“It was necessary for me to lobby at the Centre to bring in more trains and air service. Thankfully, Union Ministers Suresh Prabhu, Jayant Sinha and Piyush Goyal extended their full support. Even when the Hubballi Train was to be renamed as Vishwamanava Express to honour poet laureate Kuvempu, the Railway Minister obliged and today we have the train renamed,” he said.
“My vision is that there must be at least one train per hour from Bengaluru to Mysuru and there must be at least 25 flights from Mysore Airport,” the MP said amidst cheers from the crowd. Pratap Simha assured that the Mysore Airport works will be completed within five years. It will emerge as an international airport and this will lead to a good inflow of tourists and create employment opportunity.
In the coming days, extension of Tipu Express and Chamundi Express to Ashokapuram Station will be a reality, he added. “Once the Satellite Terminal Railway Station at Naganahalli becomes a reality, there will be scope for additional trains to Mysuru. He also said that efforts were on to extend Kacheguda Express to Mysuru city,” he revealed.
Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Aparna Garg, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Hemanth, MLC K.T. Srikantegowda and others were present.

Senior and experienced Engineers of Professionals forum, Belagavi inspected the Railway Overbridge Near Gogte Circle, in view of the comments in Social media, and observed that Finishing of the concrete surfaces is not satisfactory and upto the standards, which should be corrected immediately as per the standards.
They further observed that the vertical crack between the abutment and retaining wall is not a structural crack affecting the safety of the structure, but it is a crack in plaster over the expansion joint. Plaster should not have been done over expansion joint as per the standards and hence the plaster should be removed and the joint should be finished neatly with vertical groove filled with proper sealant material.
concerned Railway Engineers are advised to finish the entire concrete surface should be finished very smoothly as per standards. The above points should be noted during the execution of 3rd Railway over-bridge employing skilled labour and using brand new steel centering and shuttering with modern engineering technology.

भागलपुर [जेएनएन]। भागलपुर से खुलने वाली कुछ और महत्वपूर्ण गाडिय़ां 2020 तक एलएचबी कोच से चलेगी। अभी यहां से विक्रमशिला और अंग एक्सप्रेस एलएचबी (लिंक हॉफमैन बुश) कोच वाली रैक से चल रही है। कामख्या-गया को भी एलएचबी कोच से चलाया जा रहा है। यह कोच लग जाने के बाद न सिर्फ ट्रेनों की रफ्तार बढ़ेगी बल्कि यात्रा भी सुखद होगा। एलएचबी कोच में पुराने कोच की अपेक्षा स्लीपर सीटों की संख्या ज्यादा है। इसकी खासियत यह है कि तेज रफ्तार में अगर कोई हादसा भी हो जाए तो यात्रियों को नुकसान कम होता है। दरअसल, भागलपुर लोकमान्य एलटीटी एक्सप्रेस, सूरत एक्सप्रेस, भागलपुर नई दिल्ली साप्ताहिक एक्सप्रेस, फरक्का एक्सप्रेस, भागलपुर अजमेर एक्सप्रेस और ब्रह्मपुत्र मेल में पुराने आइसीएफ रैक लगे हैं। आइसीएफ रैक का बनना बंद हो गया है। इस कारण एलएचबी से ही महत्वपूर्ण ट्रेनों को चलाने की योजना रेलवे की है। एलएचबी कोच का प्रयोग राजधानी एक्सप्रेस, शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस,...
दुरंतो एक्सप्रेस, डबल डेकर एक्सप्रेस, अंत्योदय एक्सप्रेस, हमसफर एक्सप्रेस, विक्रमशिला, अंग और कई महत्वपूर्ण सुपरफास्ट में किया जा रहा है।
-02 ट्रेनों का अभी हो रहा परिचालन
-72 की जगह 80 हो जाएगी स्लीपर में सीट
-100 किमी की जगह 130 अधितकतम हो जाएगी स्पीड
हाई टेक्नोलॉजी से बना है रैक
उच्च स्तरीय तकनीक से लैस इस कोच में बेहतर शॉक एक्जावर का उपयोग होता है। जिससे कम आवाज होती है और यात्रियों को झटकों का अहसास नहीं होता। वजन में हल्के कोच डिस्क ब्रेक के कारण कम समय व कम दूरी में बेहतर काम करते है। सीबीसी कपलिंग के कारण ये कोच दुर्घटना में भी नहीं टूटते और डिब्बे एक-दूसरे पर नहीं चढ़ते। कोच में कंट्रोल्ड डिस्चार्ज टायलेट सिस्टम ट्रेन के रुकते ही शौचालय के दरवाजों को बंद कर देती है। इस तरह शौचालय का इस्तेमाल स्टेशन पर नहीं हो सकता।
