Mangaluru Central was one of the 50 stations chosen for redevelopment by then Railway Minister Mamta Banerjee in 2009, but nothing has happened so far. Some of the other stations in Karnataka mentioned in the 2009 budget, including Yeshwantpur and Baiyappanahalli in Bengaluru, have been redeveloped.  | Photo Credit: H.S. Manjunath
 
It is back to the drawing board for the railway station development project for Mangaluru as the Railway Ministry has decided to redevelop Mangaluru Central Railway Station instead of Mangaluru Junction.

2019, the Ministry had asked the Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) to develop Mangaluru Junction Railway Station. Before that, the Ministry had announced that Mangaluru Central Railway Station would be developed to ‘World Class’ standards.
In a letter on September 15, the Ministry informed RLDA of the decision to entrust Mangaluru Central Station for redevelopment instead of Mangaluru Junction as communicated in August 2019.
Mangaluru Central was one of the 50 stations chosen for redevelopment by then Railway Minister Mamta Banerjee in 2009. In 2014, the Dakshina Kannada district administration recommended developing Mangaluru Junction as Central is located in a congested area. In the last 12 years however, no development took place in either of the stations.
Some of the other stations mentioned in the 2009 budget in Karnataka, including Yeshwantpur and Baiyappanahalli in Bengaluru, have been redeveloped.
Trilok Kothari, Divisional Railway Manager of Palakkad division, told The Hindu that the redevelopment would involve private participation — either public-private partnership (PPP) wherein the private partner would make the investment or partial PPP where the Railways would bear a portion of the project cost. The modalities would be decided once the RLDA comes to a conclusion about the commercial potential of the project.
Mr. Kothari said the division would have to collate all data regarding Mangaluru Central in the next four months and submit to RLDA in the prescribed format. The data includes land available in and around Central, available infrastructure, number of trains handled, and access roads.

The division would also have to make projections for the future, up to 20 years or more, indicating the expected increase in passenger footfall and train operations.

To avoid zonal issues, develop Mangalore port as a terminal and handover to SR. All Kerala trains can run from there. Handover MAQ to SWR or KR. All Karnataka trains and north and east bound trains can run from MAQ.

None of the Kerala originating trains towards Konkan are running via MAQ. After redevelopment, atleast 8 trains should run via MAQ.
VSKP feel neglected, but more than 2 dozen trains are running via VSKP with loco reversal. So, why not run trains via MAQ?

An elevated rotary flyover to the terminal will be developed by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at a cost of Rs 260 crore.
Bengaluru’s Sir M Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal at Baiyappanahalli, after facing several delays, is likely to open soon as the city’s civic body has sorted out the road connectivity issues, Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said. It is expected that the city’s third coaching terminal of Indian Railways after Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) Bengaluru as well as Yesvantpur stations will decongest the rush in the two existing railway stations. An elevated rotary flyover to the terminal will be developed by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at a cost of Rs 260 crore. BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta recently presented the plan

to the Railway Minister.
According to an IE report, the BBMP plans to construct an elevated rotary flyover at Maruthi Sevanagar-IOC junction in order to provide access to the terminal as well as to areas like Banaswadi and Kammanahalli. Besides, an additional RoB has been planned at Baiyappanahalli level-crossing, next to the RoB that is currently under-construction. The Railway Minister was quoted saying there are some issues regarding the connectivity to the terminal for which the city’s civic body has come up with solutions. From the terminal, the train service will be operational once the issue of connectivity is solved, the minister said.
The South Western Railway zone has not announced any date yet regarding the terminal’s opening. The national transporter had initially planned to start commercial services in March 2021, but due to the Covid-19 induced lockdown, the launch was delayed. According to officials, the terminal worth Rs 314 crore is India’s first largest air-conditioned rail concourse, which will give travellers an airport kind of experience. The Indian Railways terminal is modelled after Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport. It will boast seven platforms, other than eight stabling lines and three pit lines. Each platform is 600 metres long and 15 metres wide, the railway officials mentioned.
According to the report, the 4,200 sq metres terminal building will cater to 50,000 daily footfall, with as many as 50 trains running daily. Besides, two subways have been constructed as well, which will link all station platforms apart from a long, oval-shaped FoB that will connect all the seven platforms. For differently-abled passengers, the subways will be accessible both by stairs and ramps. The terminal building as well as the platforms will be illuminated by LED lights. Also, it will be equipped with its own rainwater harvesting as well as storage facility. The officials said a sewage treatment plant is also in the pipeline with a capacity of four lakh litres. The new terminal in Bengaluru will also have a parking area for over 200 cars and 900 two-wheelers, they added.

Railways is on par with the airport terminals, the officials further claimed.
According to railway officials, the railway station, which is provided with as many as seven platforms, has been designed to serve a footfall of 1 lakh railway passengers on a daily basis. Besides, it also has passenger-friendly features such as Braille signage, ramps to access the subway apart from lifts and escalators, they stated.
According to the report, the Union Railway Minister also reviewed the railway yard’s operational aspects, amenities as well as innovative features provided at the railway station. Vaishnaw discussed the potential for transportation of parcels from this terminal with senior officials of the South Western Railway zone. The Union Minister instructed officials to formulate proposals in order to generate revenue from running of parcel special train services to transport white goods, textiles, industrial tools as well as other products manufactured in this area, the report added.
Bengaluru’s Byappanahalli railway station is being transformed into a world-class hub by IRSDC. Once redeveloped, it will boast many features including a new concourse area with food courts, cafes, kiosks, restaurants, waiting areas, retail shops, etc., modern passenger information and display systems, fire safety systems, security systems among others.

BBMP to spend ₹260 crore on road projects to link Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal at Byappanahalli
The new Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal at Baiyappanahalli will be opened to the public as soon as connectivity issues are addressed, said Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw during his first inspection of the terminal on Sunday.
“There are small glitches in connectivity, for which the BBMP has come out with solutions. As soon as connectivity is done, train services will be started from this point,” he said.

no date was given for when it would become operational. The Railways had initially planned to start commercial operations in March 2021, but the launch was delayed due to the pandemic. During the inspection, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta briefed the Minister of the civic agency’s plans to build an elevated rotary flyover at Maruthi Sevanagar–IOC junction to provide access to the terminal and areas such as Kammanahalli and Banaswadi. An additional RoB has been planned at Baiyappanahalli level-crossing, next to the underconstruction RoB. The civic body will be spending ₹260 crore to build the infrastructure.
Mr. Gupta told The Hindu that the BBMP had already taken up construction of roads near the terminal. “The terminal facility is ready but road infrastructure connecting the terminal was not prepared for two to three years. Now, we are on the job to provide road access to the terminal and other points,” he said.The civic body plans to build an elevated rotary flyover to decongest the area. “It is the first-of-its-kind project in the city,” Mr. Gupta said, adding that pending works on the Baiyappanahalli RoB would be completed as early as possible.
Defence land
The BBMP needs 5,000 sq. m of defence land for additional RoB and widening of the road. It has approached the Defence authorities seeking additional land. Completion of the Baiyappanahalli RoB, which has been pending for years, will help passengers coming from S.V. Road metro station side.
However, BBMP officials maintain that it would take 18 months to complete the project. “Connectivity to the terminal is an issue. Prior to the opening, we will provide road access to Old Madras Road and other points. Already, we have built roads opposite the terminal. Other projects such as elevated rotary flyover will be taken up in a phased manner later,” said a civic official.The SWR has spent ₹314 crore on the station. The terminal has capacity to deal with 30 pairs of trains and one lakh passengers per day. While inspecting the terminal, the Minister asked SWR to come out plans to generate revenue by running parcel special trains.

Railways should seriously think of connecting BYPL bypass line (Salem line) with SMVB terminal, by way of a horse shoe type link line. This will give tremendous flexibility in operation. Trains from YNK side can enter SMVB and go towards Salem line without loco reversal. If this is done, one can think of a Chennai Hosur train via SMVB (KJM line-SMVB-Salem bypass line).
Hope this is explored.

Yes good option if they are able to explore that well. It can also give suburban circular connectivity to places between Hosur-WFD, BWT as well . From BAND when one connects to Salem line , they can form something similar we can see at Shoranur ( like a V shape) where a line from the terminal can also join.
