Tuesday’s announcement by Minister of State for Railways Suresh Angadi about the introduction of another train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru has kindled hopes among coastal people who were demanding a super-fast express between Bengaluru and Karwar/ Vasco-da-Gama.
National Railway Users’ Consultative Council Member Kunjal Venkatesh Kini in the recent meeting of South Western Railway’s Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee at Goa had raised the issue saying the present Bengaluru-Karwar Express takes over 17 hours. The service is of little help to passengers beyond Udupi, Mr. Kini told SWR.
An overnight train could reach
Karwar in about 13 hours if it skips Mangaluru and moves via Padil bypass, off Mangaluru Junction, Mr. Kini noted. Goods trains between Bengaluru-Karwar/Goa operate via the bypass.
The time spent on moving till Mangaluru Central and loco-reversal (change of engine direction) could be saved if the express train is operated on the bypass, Mr. Kini said.
Rail fan Gautam Shetty said Mr. Angadi must have meant the new train to Karwar as recently Muzrai Minister Kota Srinivas Poojari had conveyed to him the demand from coastal people for a super fast train to Karwar.
Safety certification
SWR said in the ZRUCC meeting that Padil bypass was not certified for passenger trains by the Commissioner of Railway Safety and hence it may not be possible to operate the new train.
Mr. Shetty however said Padil bypass falls under Southern Railway’s Palakkad Division and nothing prevents SWR from sending the proposal for the new train. He said SR was prepared to accommodate the new train on the bypass and quoted an RTI reply, which said, “It was operationally feasible for a passenger train from SWR jurisdiction to reach Konkan Railway without touching Mangaluru Junction.”
Mr. Kini and Mr. Shetty suggested that the train could leave Bengaluru at 7 p.m., reach Padil at 3.52 a.m., Udupi at 4.35 a.m., Karwar at 8.30 a.m. before reaching Vasco at 11 a.m. In the return direction, the train could start at 4 p.m. from Vasco, 6 p.m. from Karwar and 11 p.m. at Padil to reach Bengaluru at 8 a.m.
Sources in SWR told The Hindu the Zone has sought an official communication from SR about the Padil bypass status. “We can move the proposal upon getting a positive response,” they said.

Tilldate Mumbai - North Konkan - Madgoan - Londa - Hubbali - ( Guntakkal / Arsikere) - Bengaloru trains were not been operated.
Moreover, no Konkan train Mumbai - Madgoan - Mangaloru jn - Mysuru / Bengaluru also operated.
These two routed trains have to be operated early.
No konkan train enter into the Interior Karnataka even though Karmataka contributed the
major portion in Konkan Railway.

Since single line path constraints no more in Konkan is the ready made reply.
So the existing 12133/34 Mumbai CSMTMangaloru jn existing expresses have to be extended to Mysuru.
Moreover, 10103 /104 Mumbai CSMT Madgoan Mandovi expresses have to be extended to Bengaloru city jn via Londa and Hubbali.
Till date no Konkan trains are operted from Mumbai to Interior Karnataka, even
though Karnataka state has contributed major share in Konkan execution.

Both the Express trains mentioned are dedicated for Goa bound travellers but the karwar express is extended to Mangalore. So are high demand remains and Mandovi express is not able to cater to the demand from Mumbai and extension should not be done. If such a demand exists a new biweekly train should be introduced subject to infrastructure upgrade in KR region.

MP Nalin Kumar Kateel said survey for laying a new Shivamogga-Sringeri-Venoor-Dharmasthala railway line is in progress.
He said that a survey for railway line between Kanhangad and Kaniyooru is also being taken up. “The electrification of the railway line from Kannur to Mangaluru is complete. The track doubling work from Thokkooru to Mangaluru is completed and the proposal track doubling from Thokkooru to Ankola is being prepared,” he added.
“The railway underbridge (RuB) on the carriageway towards Mangaluru on the Bengaluru-Mangaluru NH 75 at Padil is almost ready. The RuB is a part
of the four-laning the B C Road – Nanthoor stretch of NH 75 under the Port Connectivity Project. Concrete box pushing technology was adopted for the construction of the RuB,” he said.
Moolarapattana bridge
MLA Dr Y Bharath Shetty said the government is likely to approve of a new bridge at Moolarapattana, across River Phalguni, using new technology of steel girder, at an estimated cost of Rs 14 crore.
The residents have been demanding a new bridge at Moolarapattana after the collapse of the old bridge on June 25, 2018. With the steel girder, the estimated cost of the project is likely to reduce.
The collapsed bridge on the district main road was providing connectivity from Edapadavu in Mangaluru taluk and passes via Kuppepadavu and Arala-Muthooru-Bantwal.
