I heard that their will be GM Inspection of Gadag -Hotgi Branch line section on this 29th January due to which lot stations falling in this section getting beautification and renovation works.. Gadag junction got it's tall national flag pole installed in front of station and also gardening works going on. It will be awesome after all the works get completed..
Is electrification and doubling fully done for this branch?
Not yet still both doubling and Electrification works going on in good pace..

I’ve covered the section yesterday. Uploaded three videos today.
Poles have been laid beyond Aliyabad. Just stop a few km before BJP station.
Poles laid from BJP outer to Indi road outer till now...
By when we can expect Complete Electrification between solapur Bijapur?
Doubling is in final stage now as Bhima bridge is almost ready.. waiting for tracks to be laid from hotgi to Tadval....after that in 6-10 months we can expect electrification to be completed
Yes Because Holealur Mallaprabha river Bridge works are nearing so they can take it. But it may take still more time.
Last time we saw Tenders for Gadag Balganur and Balganur Holealur but still no any doubling works initiated except Works at Gadag Jn outer towards Bijapur line. Even they don't have any major bridge in this stretch except some small culvert and RUB but the doubling works between Gadag Holealur still not yet started so hope they don't do same with this Holealur Bagalkot stretch too. Only left section is wandal to Bagalkot due to two major bridge and lot of culverts for backwaters passage between Bagalkot Mugalolli station.. Which might take more time..
New station building at BGK is also being planned : click here
Please start solapur to hubballi intercity exp
Looks difficult, now csmt-gdg sf is also becoming daily from October and already passenger train before it in both direction is stealing the show.
