NITTURU - BANASANDRA DOUBLE LINE o­n TUMAKURU - ARSIKERE SECTION COMMISSIONED


            Doubling of Railway track between Nittur – Banasandra which is a part of Tumakuru – Arsikere Doubling Project was commissioned o­n 25. 02. 2022. This line of 22 kms stretch was taken up at a cost of Rs.75.5 Crores. It consists of 5 major bridges and 2 newly constructed Road Under Bridges. Tumakuru – Arsikere Doubling Project of 96 Kms o­n Bengaluru-Hubballi line was sanctioned during 2015.

It is an important milestone in the doubling of Hubballi – Bengaluru route. This completed and commissioned track doubling will increase the line capacity of this important line connecting Bengaluru to Hubballi, Belagavi and Mumbai. It will also give impetus to rail infrastructure in the region of Arsikere – Tumakuru and improve intercity connectivity.

With the commissioning of this section, the doubling between Tumakuru – Arsikere stands fully completed and commissioned. Nittur – Banasandra track Doubling involved 6 cut & connections in mid-section and 2 cut & connections including slewing and aligning 500meters length in curve in Ammasandra yard having both constraints of site and labour. This is o­ne of the few projects o­n Indian Railways having a length of nearly 100 Kms getting completed despite the challenges of COVID 19 and heavy rains between 2019 – 2021.
