Detailed Project Report for 90 Km New BG line between Dharwad (Kyarkoppa) and Belagavi (via Kittur, M.K. Hubballi & Bagewadi) was submitted to Railway Board in November 2019. This new BG line will have 11 stations (including 4 existing stations). The total cost of the new BG line is approx. Rs.988.3 Crore.

This turnkey order includes the three new line projects –Belagavi-Dharwad via Kittur, Shimoga-Shikaripura-Ranebennur and Tumkur-Davangree via Chitradurga, with a total cost of Rs. 4027 crore.

This doesn't mean that there will be sharp curves on the alignment. The map you see is only a bird's eye view of the alignment and is too zoomed out to show the actual small turns.

Look at the Hubli-Londa route in the same image. It is shown as a smooth line, whereas in reality the route is full of sharp turns. So, don't take this as an exact alignment of the tracks.

Turns themselves are not the problem for high speed runs. There are many high speed routes with large turns and trunk routes like MAS-HWH, MAS-NDLS etc have a few places where the tracks curve around almost by 90 degress. But these are very wide curves and are properly canted so that trains can run on them at MPS. At a first glance, it appears that something similar will be done in this case too.

And most importantly, a small deviation of 5km to cover more places would always be preferred as railways need to optimize coverage and speed.

Yes, got the answer, in local news paper they mentioned Bagewadi station is meant to cater people from Bailhongal taluk/town, looks like that is why they aligned like this. In future they have plans to bifurcate a line from Bgk-Kud line at Lokapur via Yargatti, Bailhongal to Bagewadi to make is as junction.

This is just approval, when it comes to reality will take 3 or 4 years to lay a 70+ kms of track. SWR is slower than IR in executing key projects.
Best example is Tumkur to Davangere falls in same concept reduction in travel time ...but what happened so far .....zero progress.

Without completing Tumkur Davanagere line, no effect will be there in Mumbai Bangalore route.
Similarly, Tumkur Ballari line can make difference in travel to Raichur Gulbarga.
Without completing these lines, no benefit for travellers.

to Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore and other leaders’ demand for setting up cold storages near Ghataprabha to support vegetable growers, he said this was the not the Railways’ job. “But if anyone wants to do it, we will support the project,” he said.
Mr. Kore said that the Railways should help establish a cold chain to help farmers who grow vegetables and manage nurseries. He expressed hope that Mr. Angadi would support such efforts. He said that 12 leaders from Karnataka have become Railway Ministers since Independence, but no one had done as much for the State as Mr. Angadi. He also expressed hope that Mr. Angadi would ensure that a new line is laid along Belagavi-Kittur-Dharwad soon. Mr. Angadi said a detailed project report on this had reached the Railway Board.
Chikkodi MP Annasaheb Jolle said that doubling of railway lines between Chikkodi and other towns had been delayed owing to land acquisition issues.
