Anekal Road to Bidadi Railway line - what is the status?

335 users have liked.

Hello All,

Can anyone share the status of the Bidadi - Anekal Road railway line via Harohalli. Ms Mamata Banerjee had ordered a survey for a railway line along this route, which I feel would go a long way in decongesting the Bangalore City railway station, as trains from Mysore can be diverted along this route. While I've read quite a bit about the railway line connecting different cities, I've hardly come across the status of the railway lines within Bangalore City such as:

Anekal - Bidadi railway line

Yeshwantpur - Yelahanka railway line doubling

Yelahanka - Channasandra railway line doubling and

Bangalore City - Whitefield railway quadrupling

Whitefield - Kolar new railway line via Hoskote

I request you to kindly share the status of these projects if you are informed about it. The other projects that I am curious to know about are :

Chikballapur - Gauribidanur

Chikballapur - Satya Sai Nilayam (Putparthi)

Gauribidanur - Madhugiri (announced in 2012 - 2013 budget)

Please share the status of these projects as well.

They have a page showing status of "sanctioned survey projects". click here. On this page, Bidadi Anekal Road line is listed, 40Km, cost 409 Cr, and some rate of return mentioned as 4.74%. Wonder how rate of return is calculated, and "why" it is calculated if the project is already sanctioned. Perhaps, citing non-feasibility would be the folly to not execute "sanctioned" projects. But anyway, seems the status is survey done, report submitted to board, and go ahead awaited. Just guessing this for lack of any other way to extract info from SWR website.

This SWR page (click here) shows ongoing projects on a map.

Thank you Silkboard, for the response. It is high time that we try and establish better rail connectivity in and around Bangalore so that commutation in the city is not a problem.
