Bengaluru-Mysuru double rail track to be fully operational from Nov 21

Mysuru, November 18:-  The prolonged 11-year-old project of Bengaluru-Mysuru railway track doubling work is expected to be fully open on November 21.

Following the green signal given by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) for commissioning of the 1.7- km stretch at the Srirangapattana yard, the work on the rail track doubling project has finally been completed and is expected to be operational next week.

The project was launched in 2007 for 138 Kilometre rail track doubling work and the project was delayed and could not be commissioned due to relocation process of Tipu Sultan’s armoury in Srirangapattana. Now since Tipu’s armoury has been successfully relocated, the double rail track is ready for trains to run between Mysuru and Bengaluru.

In fact this project will help in speeding up of all express trains by at least 5 minutes and the cautionary order issued for running of trains at 30 kmph for the nearly 2 km stretch between Naganahalli and Pandavapura Stations will be removed on the night of November 20, according to sources from the South Western Railway (SWR).

SWR sources said the CRS has cleared the section and the commissioning of the stretch near Srirangapattana will take place at 5 am on Tuesday November 21.
