The long awaited project of doubling the Bengaluru-Mysuru railway line will be complete with the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) on Saturday scheduled to inspect a crucial stretch of the second line, which is likely to be operational within the next two weeks.
South Western Railway (SWR) officials said all the necessary files were sent to CRS, K A Manoharan. The inspection was originally scheduled for October 28 but was postponed due to the arrival of the Railway Board Chairman. “Once sanction is accorded for running of passenger trains on this stretch, the line will be commissioned,” SWR Public Relatons Officer E Vijaya said.
The

spokesperson said the electrification of tracks was also nearing completion. “It is expected to be ready by end of November and electric trains will run between the two cities by December. This will avoid engine change currently being done at Bengaluru,” she added.
A senior official in the SWR told DH that they will start further streamlining the operations between the two cities within the next fortnight. The doubling work was dragged for years due to various reasons, including the need to shift Tipu armoury near Srirangapatna.
The railways finally shifted the armoury in March with assistance of two private companies, one of them from the United states, at a cost of nearly Rs 14 crore. The doubling project started in 2003 with the government sanctioning Rs 14 crore for the first phase of doubling between Bengaluru and Ramanagaram. The project cost has gone up from Rs 480 crore to Rs 875 crore.
The completion of doubling will help thousands of passengers who have long complained about their journeys stretched at the fag end. “The 1.5 km gap in the line meant a train had to wait at Naganahalli and Pandavapura for clearance. The waiting time of 20 minutes will be cut by doubing,” said T P Lokesh of Karnataka Railway Vedike.
About 20 trains run between the two cities every day with weekly specials taking the number up to 23 on weekends and select days.
While the bottleneck at Mysuru is removed, officials said the issue of trains from Mysuru stopping at various places after Kengeri will not be resolved as long as stations such as Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna station are decongested. “We need to build maintenance lines for which we have sought (Binny Mill) land. This will pave way for optimum utilisation of infrastructure.”

The bi-weekly express has been provided with metallic Braille signages inside the coaches indicating berth numbers, location of alarm pull chains, toilets and emergency windows
The Mysuru-Varanasi Express is set to become the country’s first visually-challenged friendly train when it chugs off from the city on Tuesday.
The bi-weekly express Train Number 16229/16230 which leaves Mysuru for Varanasi on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has been provided with metallic Braille signages inside the coaches indicating the berth numbers, location of alarm pull chains, toilets and emergency windows. The Braille signage also has instructions on the

operation of emergency exit windows for the use of visually challenged in times of any exigency. The initiative was financed by Pratap Simha, Mysuru MP, from the MPLAD Fund. Mr. Simha inaugurated and inaugurated by him on Monday.
Though the Puri-Delhi Purushottam Express was the first train in the country to have a Braille-embedded coach, the Mysuru-Varanasi Express is the first train in the country where all reserved coaches have been embedded with Braille signage, said Rajkumar Lal, Divisional Railway Manager, Mysuru division of the South Western Railways.
“The plan is to extend the facility to all the reserved coaches of long-distance trains in a phase-wise manner,” he added. Braille signage has been introduced on one rake of the Mysuru-Varanasi Express and the facility will be provided for the second rake of the same train as well. The Chamundi Express and the Mysuru-Talguppa Express are other two trains that will be provided with Braille signages after this, said Mr.Lal.
The Mysuru Division, which operates 118 trains, has plans for such signages for all long-distance and express trains.
Ms. Netravati, a visually-impaired person, welcomed the initiative and said that it will help them identify the seats or berths without seeking help from others. “We will be more independent and at times people do not respond properly as they to tend to be in a hurry to locate their berths,” said Netravati.
However, the coach numbers have conventional signage and the plan is to affix Braille signage for the coaches as well, said officials.
