Work on all the infrastructure of the first air-conditioned railway terminal of south India was completed by the beginning of last year
More than a year after it was built, the Sir M Visvesvaraya Terminal Baiyyappanahalli (SMVB) saw commercial operations on Monday as the Ernakulam Tri-Weekly Express chugged out of its platform without any fanfare late in the evening on Monday.
On Monday evening, however, railway enthusiasts, activists and media persons outnumbered the passengers as they came to celebrate the moment. There were cheers across the platform, while every nook and corner became
a selfie spot. Many spoke about the long wait for the operationalisation of the facility.
Ramesh Babu and Karthika Ramesh, a couple travelling to Ernakulam, said they were thrilled to see the terminal. “This seems more like an airport than a railway station. The elegant design and cleanliness make it look like an international facility. I am so happy that I can come here every two months when I travel to Ernakulam,” said Babu.
Meena Anand, a passenger, said she wished the trains were as clean as the station. 
Delayed opening 
Work on all the infrastructure of the first air-conditioned railway terminal of south India was completed by the beginning of last year. The railways officially cited the lack of connectivity for the delay in the inauguration while sources said the wait for the prime minister was the reason for the delay.
“I can say there is a sense of relief. In fact, we got tired of demanding the railways to stop waiting for VIPs and start operations. Even now, I feel that we were let down. This was a moment the Railways could have used to introduce a new train to several of the poorly connected places in Karnataka. It’s unfortunate that they are running an old train to Ernakulam,” said Karnataka Railway Vedike’s Krishna Prasad.

Jun 01 (19:30)   Date with the Gate

sachinature~   1533 news posts
Entry# 5363835   News Entry# 487854         Tags   Past Edits
Do not go by the title of the topic…it was an experience I wanted to share today. For years, people have to travel between this side of Tilakwadi to the other side via the 3 gates. And crossing the gate is a daily ‘EVENT’ like conquering a summit.
So when you ask people how their day was, they start with ‘’Oh! Great! Today the gate was open both the times I crossed”, These are life’s small joys for them. Turning a heavily laden car or a bike with a pillion at the first or third gate has become all the more challenging than ever because of the loosely laid, uneven tiles.
back to yesterday’s 25-30 minutes date with the First gate.
I had to buy something from RPD cross and come back to congress road, first thought will go by over the bridge via Military Mahadev. But then I thought why take the long route But never ever imagined my date with 1st gate will last for almost 26 minutes.
As I stood near the gate I could see many people come and stand next to me and some covering the gate from the wrong side as well. This always adds to the mess but no one cares. Then there are those who spit while standing in the crowd. The pungent smell of the gutkha is nauseating.
Saw a couple of people bowing down and crossing the gate. Then came the much-awaited train from the station side, all were happy that the gate will open now once the train passes. While most of the bogies had passed but then suddenly breaks were applied and the train stopped in between. Ohh what a sight…people all this time had patience because they waited for 5-10 minutes..but then they said let’s climb the train and move to another side…one person passed and seeing him others followed and many crossed over.
For the people on the train, it was fun watching us. Seemed like they really did not believe in “Swachh Bharat” as they threw coffee cups, and food plates on the tracks right in the middle of the first gate. All we could do was watch.
Finally, after 12-15 mins the train passed and people started their vehicles…but this happiness was short-lived..there was one more train coming. Then one person from the group shouted at the gateman to open the gate for 5 minutes so that all can pass and there are senior citizens, and kids, waiting for a long.
But the gatekeeper said his hands are tied and everything is controlled from the station itself. And again we had to wait for 5 minutes until the train. In between many people took a U-turn and started to go another way. Now that it has double tracks, many times we see two trains passing from opposite directions within minutes. Good for trains but bad for citizens who have to wait for more.
By default, traffic will not reduce at all but we need good foresight and think 10 years in advance and draw a plan. Opening the 3rd gate ROB will not solve all problems. Also, the first and second gates are at a right angle to roads and hence a bridge there may not be the best solution. Rather, an underpass like the ones in Bangalore would be better.
At the 3rd gate, the paving tiles have been laid uneven. So two-wheelers, especially those with a saree-clad woman sitting on one side, face a huge challenge as the bike skids on the uneven tiles with huge gaps. Well, I leave it to the best judgment of policymakers and authorities to find a quick and best solution to this mess.

ಬೀದರ: ಸ್ಥಗಿತಗೊಂಡಿರುವ ಬೀದರ-ಯಶವಂತಪುರ ರೈಲು (ವಾಯಾ ಕಲಬುರ್ಗಿ) ಪುನರ್‌ ಸಂಚಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಕ್ರಮ ವಹಿಸುವಂತೆ ಬೀದರ ವಾಣಿಜ್ಯೋದ್ಯಮ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆ ಮನವಿ ಮಾಡಿದೆ.
ಈ ಕುರಿತು ಅಧ್ಯಕ್ಷ ಬಿ.ಜಿ ಶೆಟಕಾರ ಮತ್ತು ಕಾರ್ಯದರ್ಶಿ ಡಾ| ವಿರೇಂದ್ರ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರಿ ಅವರು ಸಿಎಂಗೆ ಪತ್ರ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಕಲ್ಬುರ್ಗಿ ಭಾಗದ ಕೆಲ ತಾಲೂಕಿನ ಜನರ ವಿರೋಧ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೆ ಬೀದರ-ಯಶವಂತಪುರ (ವಾಯಾ ಕಲ್ಬುರ್ಗಿ) ರೈಲು ಸ್ಥಗಿತಗೊಳಿಸುವ ಕ್ರಮ ಖಂಡನೀಯ. ಈ ಮಾರ್ಗದಿಂದ ಯಾವುದೇ ರೀತಿಯ ನಕರಾತ್ಮಕ ಪರಿಣಾಮವು ವಿರೋಧಿಸಿದ ತಾಲೂಕುಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಬೀರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೂ ಸಹ ಇದನ್ನು ವಿರೋಧಿಸಿರುವುದು ನಮ್ಮ ಭಾಗಕ್ಕೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ಅನ್ಯಾಯ ಎಂದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಈ ರೈಲ್ವೆಯ ಸಂಚಾರದಿಂದ ನಮ್ಮ ಭಾಗದ ಸಮಗ್ರ ಪ್ರಗತಿಗೆ ಸಹಾಯಕವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಮುಖ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಇಲ್ಲಿಂದ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಸಲು ಇರುವ ನಿಗದಿತ ಕಾಲಾವಧಿಗಿಂತಲೂ ಸುಮಾರು ಎರಡ್ಮೂರು ಗಂಟೆಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಸಮಯ, ಜತೆಗೆ ಇಂಧನದ ಉಳಿತಾಯ ಆಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಈ ಭಾಗದ ಜನರಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ರೀತಿಯ ಮೂಲ ಸೌಕರ್ಯಗಳು
ಒದಗುತ್ತವೆ. ವಿವಿಧ ಭಾಗಗಳ ಜನರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಸಂಪರ್ಕ ಉಂಟಾಗಿ ಆ ಭಾಗದ ಕೆಲವೊಂದು ಉದ್ಯಮಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ಭಾಗಕ್ಕೆ ಬರುವುದರ ಮೂಲಕ ಜೀವನ ಶೈಲಿ, ಜೀವನದ ಗುಣಮಟ್ಟ ಅಧಿ ಕವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಮುಂಬರುವ ದಿನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಇನ್ನೂ ಅನೇಕ ರೈಲ್ವೆಗಳ ಸಂಚಾರವು ಆರಂಭವಾಗಿ ಉತ್ತರ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕವನ್ನು ದಕ್ಷಿಣ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಮೂಲಕ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆಗೆ ಸಂಚರಿಸಲು ಅವಕಾಶ ದೊರಕುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದರಿಂದ ಪ್ರವಾಸೋದ್ಯಮ ಅಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಗೆ ಅನುಕೂಲವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಯಾವುದೇ ಭಾಗದ ಸ್ಥಳೀಯರ ವಿರೋಧವನ್ನು ಲೆಕ್ಕಿಸದೆ ಹಾಗೂ ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಹಿತಾಸಕ್ತಿ ಪರಿಗಣಿಸದೆ ಕಲ್ಯಾಣ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಭಾಗದ ಸವಾಂಗೀಣ ಅಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಗಾಗಿ ಬೀದರ-ಯಶವಂತಪುರ (ವಾಯಾ ಕಲಬುರಗಿ) ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಸಂಚಾರವನ್ನು ಆರಂಭಿಸಲು ತುರ್ತು ಕ್ರಮ ಕೈಗೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಕೋರಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
