SWR/South Western
Feb 02 (15:08)   SWR the most punctual railway zone in country

Hubballi: South Western Railways(SWR ) that comprises Hubballi, Mysuru and Bengaluru divisions has emerged as the most punctual railway zone in South India.
It has also improved its ranking nationally from 12th position in 2019-20 to third in 2021-22 in maintaining punctuality of mail/express trains, as of January 29, 2022. The achievement was registered in recent communications of Railway Board.

Confirming the

data, Sanjeev Kishore , the general manager of South Western Railway, told TOI that punctuality is increased from 76.43% in 2019-20 to 96.02% in 2021-22 as of December 31, 2021. “While the Railway Board’s target is 90% for the year 2021- 22 across the country, we have already surpassed it,” he said.

It may be mentioned here that South Western Railway achieved the punctuality feat among six other railway zones — Southern Railway, South Central Railway, South Coast Railway, South Easters Railway, South Eastern Central Railway and Konkan
Railway.

Its in third place at the national level with 96.02% after NWR (98.16%) and WR (97.24%).

H S Verma, the principal chief operations manager, said that factors such as the increase of double lines, yard remodelling and increase in maximum permissible speed have helped South Western Railway achieve this record. “Whenever trains were stopped after lockdown since March 2020, we expedited the technical work like line doubling and yard remodelling and that helped us in improving our punctuality when trains resumed services. Amid Covid work, our GM conducted weekly meetings to check progress and punctuality and issued valuable instructions,” he stated.

E Vijaya , the chief public relation officer of South Western Railway, asserted that 92% trains are restored now.

“After 2017, the 620 km of route is being doubled,” she said. The zone improved punctuality because of yard remodelling in Mysuru, Harihar, Chikjajur, Bangarapet Junction, Baiyyappanahalli, KSR Bengaluru City (towards Mysuru end), Hosapete and Hubballi stations and other safety works, she added.

Giving trains extra 45 minutes as scheduled time will for sure increase punctuality... except for UBL SBC route, none in SWR have been speeded up.. BJP GDG, GTL LD, UBL MRJ all are slow routes.. trains run with just 50kmph of avg speed...

Vijayapura: After Dharwad MP and Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Prahlad Joshi asked staff of South Western Railway (SWR) to consider the proposal to introduce operating new Rajdhani Express train from Hubballi to New Delhi, the people of Vijayapura and Bagalkot are now demanding the same train to cover both the Districts too.
According to the sources, Joshi has asked the officials of SWR to operate the Rajdhani Express connecting Hubballi to national capital New Delhi. The officials too have agreed to take up the matter to the Railway Board for consideration.
It

may be noted that the people of the twin-districts have been demanding the Railway Ministry to introduce the Rajdhani Express train in order to reach New Delhi directly from these districts.
If the demand is met then it will be the first daily super fast express train to operate to New Delhi from Hubballi covering Vijayapura and Bagalkot. At present only four trains are being operated to New Delhi via Hubballi, where all are either bi-weekly or weekly express trains. It may be noted that not even a single train connecting to the national capital ply from Vijayapura.
After news broke out that Union Minister Joshi advised to operate Rajdhani Express from Hubballi, the residents of Vijayapura and Bagalkot are now demanding the Railway Ministry to operate this super fast train via Vijayapura. Hundreds of people active in micro-blogging sites from the region announced support for the Twitter campaign.
Ashok Hallur, President of Vijayapura Railway Action Committee, pointed out that a daily train connecting to New Delhi via Vijayapura is the need of the hour for this region. Efforts are being made to operate a train from Hubballi to New Delhi through Vijayapura but the requests have not been considered so far.
“When people of both the Districts need to travel to New Delhi, then they either have to go to Solapur or Hubballi or Kalaburagi. The railway authorities have to introduce a train connecting New Delhi via Vijayapura. It will not only help the region connect with the national capital but also connect many popular tourist places and pilgrimages of North India,” opined Railway Activist Hallur.
It may be noted that when late Union Minister of state for Railways Suresh Angadi had visited Vijayapura to flag off a daily special express train in 2019, Vijayapura City  MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal had demanded the Railway Minister to operate Sampark Kranti Express (Bengaluru-New Delhi) via Vijayapura. The Railway Minister had promised to fulfill the demand. however, it has remained unfulfilled till date.
When asked the SWR authorities whether they will operate the newly proposed Rajdhani Express via Vijayapura, Aneesh Hegde, Chief Public Relations Officer, said that they will examine the demand.

The only plus point of newly scheduled Rajdhani is that it arrives at 4.00 am

Either of the trains will surely be diverted to GDG, BJP in near future.

उक्त प्रस्ताव माननीय संसदीय कार्य मंत्री प्रल्हाद जोशी के आग्रह पर दक्षिण पश्चिम रेलवे ने रेलवे बोर्ड को भेजा है। केंद्रीय मंत्री का प्रस्ताव और आग्रह होने के कारण यथावकाश सम्मति भी मिलने की पुरजोर आशा है।
इस राजधानी एक्सप्रेस के कारण मध्य रेल के पुणे मण्डल को पहली और भुसावल मण्डलको एक और राजधानी एक्सप्रेस मिलने की आशा भी बढ़ गयी है।

Best is to depart SUR at 06.30 am, Arrive GDG at 11:50/ 12:00, at UBL 13:05/15 ( can be considered behind Chalukya as involves LR, So can be sandwiched between Chalukya and Jan Shatabdi to make it reach MYS at 21:50 easily by taking Sharavathi slot from ASK. Why the hell are they ruining the TT by making it arrive MYS at 03 AM in midnight and also crawling all the way from SUR to MYS

Line from Hotgi to Gadag is actually fit for running Super Fast trains, as the line is under utilized heavily... They can use it for introducing Long route trains from Hubli and Mysore (Via Hassan ASK) to North India easily by improving connectivity to that region.

Currently YPR BKN/BME, UBL BSB are getting good response from that region. People from Ballari, Hospet, Koppal board these trains at GDG and Bagalkot, Bijapur region also contributes towards good response.

3. Wed and Saturday KSK Clone via UBL PUNE MMR

If work completes, Trains to BJP will cover distance in 4 hours 30 minutes... MPS should be increased to 110.
Actually UBL GTL, SBC lines are capable of high speed tracks, but due to freight in GTL and doubling working in SBC line... trains are given minimum 50 to 60 minutes extra time.
