The suburban railway project would make travelling in the city and its suburbs, including to the international airport easier
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Thursday inspected the progress of the ambitious suburban railway project here. The CM travelled from Bengaluru Cantonment to Heelalige in an inspection car to review the project as well as the doubling of the railway line.
Later, speaking to reporters he said the suburban railway project would make travelling in the city and its suburbs, including to the international airport easier.
"It

will also help reduce traffic congestion in the city. Similarly, the railway doubling project will help in the operation of more trains from Bengaluru," he said. Yediyurappa said the Bengaluru suburban railway project is being implemented at an estimated cost of Rs 15,767 crore.

The expenditure would be borne by the state, Centre and external funding at a ratio of 20:20:60, the Chief Minister noted.
The state government has released Rs 400 crores for the project in 2020-21. He explained that the project is being executed by K- RIDE, the Joint Venture of Government of Karnataka and Ministry of Railways. According to officials, the suburban project comprises four corridors with a route length of 148 kms. The routes are Bengaluru City Railway Station to Devanahalli (41.40 Km), Byappanahalli to Chikkabanavara (covering a distance of 25 Km), Kengeri to Whitefield (35.52 Km); and Heelalige (Chandapura) to Rajankunte (46.24 Km).
The single line between Yeshwantpur to Channasandra section and Byappanahalli to Hosur was a major constraint for operating more trains from Bengaluru to its outskirts, they said.
Therefore these two railway line doubling projects were sanctioned in 2018-19 with 50-50 cost sharing between Government of Karnataka and Ministry of Railways.

Metro company aims to keep it ready for the Commissioner of Railway Safety’s inspection
BMRCL has set June 27 as the deadline to complete the remaining works on the Mysore Road-Kengeri extension line and keep it ready for the Commissioner of Railway Safety’s inspection.
Sources in Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said a thorough review of physical infrastructure, signalling and telecom devices and other equipment along the 6.2-kilometre stretch of the Phase 2 corridor has begun.
“We

have submitted the relevant documents for the consideration of the Commissioner of Railway Safety. However, the CRS has sought clarifications on some issues. Once we reply to the queries, it may take a few days before the safety authority decides on inspection dates,” a BMRCL source said.

The source, however, said work was on to make sure the entire line was ready for inspection.
“The entire infrastructure is undergoing a thorough check and any remaining issue will be rectified. Officials must be prepared to answer any questions that may arise during the course of the inspection.
“If everything goes well, we will get clearance in July,” he added.
As trial runs on the section concluded earlier this year, officials expressed hope of commissioning the line by July.
Once operationalised, the stretch is expected to bring 75,000 new riders every day under normal circumstances.
Meanwhile, BMRCL Managing Director Rakesh Singh met senior officials on Tuesday to review the progress of the metro projects taken up under Phase 2.

K-RIDE claims that work on the four corridors will be completed within six years.  | Photo Credit: File Photo
If all goes as planned, suburban rail commuters will be able to use Namma Metro and Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) buses with ease. The Rail Infrastructure Development Company (Karnataka) Ltd. (K-RIDE) wants to integrate the proposed suburban rail stations with metro and existing railway stations as well as BMTC bus stops at 10 locations on the four planned corridors.
“Discussions are on with Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. and other authorities,”

said a senior K-Ride official. The four corridors are KSR Bengaluru City to Devanahalli, Byappanahalli to Chikkabanavara, Kengeri to Whitefield, and Heelalige to Rajanakunte.
The final feasibility report on the suburban rail project also talks about integrating metro stations at KSR Bengaluru, Cantonment (yet to come up), Kengeri, and others. For example, at KSR Bengaluru, K–RIDE proposes to build an elevated station with two side platforms and one island platform. It will be an interchange station as two suburban rail corridors — Bangalore City to Rajanakunte and Kengeri to Whitefield — intersect there. The report also talks about connecting the existing metro station and KSR Bengaluru City railway station.
The 148.17-km suburban rail network project continues to face many challenges, the most recent one being the second wave of COVID-19. Even preliminary work has taken a hit. K-RIDE had prioritised construction of Byappanahalli Terminal – Chikkabanavara and Heelalige – Rajanakunte corridors.
“Much of the preliminary work on these two corridors has been affected because of the second wave of COVID-19. Work on the doubling of Byappanahalli – Hosur line was also impacted due to issues with transportation of material and shortage of workers,” said the official.
Despite these hurdles, K-RIDE claims that all the four corridors will be completed within six years. Once operational, 9.84 lakh people will be able to use suburban train services every day, and officials estimate ridership will increase to 13.41 lakh by 2030.
K-RIDE has issued tenders for selecting a consultant for a detailed design and drawings for viaduct, stations, depot, track and signalling, etc. Two more tenders have also been floated for assessment of market value for land identified and structure to be acquired for the project and shifting utilities.
Extension of network
The final feasibility report on the project states that depending on the patronage, the corridors may be extended to cities in the neighbouring districts
