The Konkan Railway Corporation Limited (KRCL) is gearing to launch the survey for the proposed Thalassery-Wayanad-Mysuru rail line by using the heliborne geophysical mapping technique.
The KRCL would reportedly use the service of the CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI), Hyderabad, for the purpose.
Kerala government has proposed to construct viaduct in the forest area. Else like in Konkan railway, tunnels can be created. Kabini area around 20 kms forest area that too on the periphery is involved. Railway line parallel to Mysore Mananthavady road can be made. After Bavali, no issues in Kerala side. Line can go via - Mananthavady Iritty to Thalassery. Branch line to Kozhikode also be possible.
With a single train from Malabar area to Bangalore, already people are suffering. Ban of night bus traffic in Muthanga/ Bandipur national parks for more than a decade created havoc.
