Will help introduce more MEMU trains on route, save commuters along IT corridor a lot of timeThe railway line from Bengaluru to Hosur (50 km) is set to be electrified in 2019. On December 12, Railway Ministry declared that the line, starting from Baiyyappanahalli, will be electrified, as will be four other lines. Railway activists have welcomed the move, which will allow for more Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) trains to Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) trains on the Bengaluru-Hosur line.More MEMU trainsSrinivas Alavilli, one of the activists in the Modalu Train Beku campaign, says, “The electrification is a big plus because it will help in the addition of more MEMU trains and along with other infrastructure like automatic signalling, the Railways will be able to run more trains on the same tracks. We have very few trains on the Bengaluru-Hosur line now due to lack of signalling infrastructure.”Sanjeev Dyammanavar, rail
Idu either Navalur irbeku or Navalgund Road irbeku antha nan doubt
I feel that if doubling is also carried out, it will be more beneficial rather than only electrification. Crossings take a lot of time and due to speed limitations trains take quite some time from station to another. Best example being Bypl to Carmelaram which takes almost 15-20 minutes.
So doubling would be the best way along with electrification
Heard that doubling sanctioned but no visible progress.
As said like Mr Sachin it might be Navalur or Navalgund Road but Navalur is not 30km from hubli or if they consider TKM then its 30km upto navalur as doubled line 15+15. If such they should have mentioned Hospet-Gadag as 85+85 TKM but only RKM 85km they mentioned for RE.
