रेलवे ने बढ़ते हुए यात्रीभार को देखते हुए और अधिक आय होने के चलते यशवंतपुर-जयपुर- यशवंतपुर वीकली सुविधा सुपरफास्ट एक्सप्रेस के संचालन को विस्तार दिया है। रेलवे ने इस ट्रेन की 26 ट्रिप और संचालित करने का निर्णय लिया है। जिसके चलते ट्रेन नंबर 82653/82654, यशवंतपुर-जयपुर-यशवंतपुर वीकली सुविधा सुपरफास्ट एक्सप्रेस यशवंतपुर से 7 नवंबर से 30 अप्रैल तक (26 ट्रिप) और जयपुर से 9 नवंबर से 2 मई तक (26 ट्रिप) संचालित होगी। ट्रेन यशवंतपुर से प्रत्येक गुरुवार को सुबह 11:30 बजे चलकर शनिवार सुबह 6:35 बजे जयपुर पहुंचती है। वहीं जयपुर से ट्रेन प्रत्येक शनिवार को रात 22:15 बजे चलकर सोमवार शाम 18:25 बजे यशवंतपुर पहुंचती है। इस ट्रेन की ट्रिप में बढ़ोतरी होने से एक तरफ जहां रेलवे को अधिक किराया मिलने से आर्थिक लाभ होगा, क्योंकि इस ट्रेन में फ्लेक्सी फेयर स्कीम लागू है। जिससे किराया सामान्य ट्रेनों की तुलना में 3-4 गुना अधिक रहता है। तो वहीं...

To expedite the execution of Railway projects in Karnataka, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has recently written to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to take appropriate action for easing various bottlenecks.
Land acquisition issues, as well as delay in obtaining clearances from the Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change (MoEF & CC), are cited as reasons holding up completion of various projects.
The letter states that new line, gauge conversion and doubling works are among infrastructure projects being undertaken along with transmission line works for electrification projects in the state.

17 different projects which have been delayed due to various issues, the letter states that Railways has taken up projects on cost sharing basis with government of Karnataka.
“The state government has to deposit its share of Rs 510.9 crore for 2018-2019 and further deposit their share for 2019-2020,” it said.
To take the matter forward, the General Manager of South Western Railway, Ajay Kumar Singh, had on July 9 written to Chief Secretary T M Vijaya Bhaskar asking for a meeting with Principal Secretaries of the state “for knowing the current status of the issues and to set the ball rolling for early clearances.”
In his response to the letter, the Chief Secretary told The New Indian Express, “I have asked my office to schedule an appointment within this month with Railway officials to discuss the issues.”
Of the 21 issues cited as major pending ones, four deal with clearances to be procured from the forest department while 17 of them require the state to acquire the required land.
Among the key projects are: Hotgi-Kudgi-Gadag doubling (only 14.65 acres of 123.83 acres handed over so far); Hospet-Hubballi-Londa-Tinaighat-Vasca Da Gama doubling (25.83 acres of land requiring forestry clearance in Uttara Karnataka district); Hubballi-Chikajajur (only 29 acres handed over out of 88.16 acres needed); Yelahanka-Penukonda doubling (only 2.35 acres handed over out of 4.61 acres).
Other projects awaiting sizeable portions of land are : Arsikere-Tumukuru doubling, Miraj-Londa doubling, Gadag-Wadi new line, Tumukuru-Chitradurga Davangere new line, Rayadurga-Tumukuru via Kalyandurga new line, Munirabad-Mehaboobnagar new line, Bagalkot-Kudachi new line, Hubballi-Ankola new line, Bangalore-Chamrajanagar/Satyamangalam new line, Chikmangalur-Sakleshpur new line, Whitefield-Kolar new line, Shivamogga-Harihar new line and Marikuppam-Kuppam new line.
The letter specifies expedition of these two electrification projects: Hospet-Bellary-Guntakal which is being taken up by RVNL where a transmission line running to a length of 3 km has to be put in place.
Out of total 16 tower locations, eight foundations and four tower erections have been completed, it says. The Chikjajur-Bellary electrification project awaits estimates to be sent by the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.

Another major doubling stretch between Bengaluru and Hubballi has been declared fit to run trains.
BENGALURU: Another major doubling stretch between Bengaluru and Hubballi has been declared fit to run trains. The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), Southern Circle, on Friday gave the authorisation to the South Western Railway (SWR) Zone to run trains at 90 km per hour on the newly completed line between Chikkajajur and Tolahunse along the Tumukuru-Hubballi section.
This 37 km doubling project was built at a cost of Rs 222 crore and is part of the Rs 1,141

crore project between Chihkajajur and Hubballi. On October 7, the CRS had given the green signal to run trains along the 36-km doubled line between Arsikere and Karadi.
Speaking to The New Indian Express, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), Constructions, SWR, K C Swami said, “The CRS inspection was carried out on October 24. We received the authorisation to run trains on November 2. We are looking at running trains from mid-December as works related to the yard still need to be completed.” Trains will run along the Arsikere-Karadi section by the end of November, Swami added.
“The completion of these two stretches marks the completion of 73 km out of the total 287 km between Bengaluru and Hubballi for which doubling work is being undertaken,” he said. “The line capacity will improve which would mean that more trains can be run on these lines in future. At present, the crossings the trains take to give way to incoming trains due to the presence of a single line can be done away with these two stretches,” Swami added.
The punctuality along these sections is set to improve but the blocks undertaken to carry out works on the remaining stretches will counter the benefits gained right now, he added.“The running of more trains is possible only when the entire track between Bengaluru and Hubballi stands doubled. So until the remaining 214 km too is completed, the real impact will not be felt,” the CAO added.
Along this route, the portion was doubled between Bengaluru and Tumukuru, between Karadi to Arsikere last month and Chikkajajur to Tolahunse now. The stretches between Tumukuru and Karadi as well as Tolahunse to Hubballi are yet to be doubled.
