  1. Dear Sir,
    Really it is appreciated for the proposal made for rail transport between Dharwad & Belgaum cities which helps to make very close & healthy travelling and the people can remember everyday Raani Channamma.(i.e Via Kyarkop,Belur KIADB,Kotur,Venkatapur,Tegur,Durgadkeri,Channamma Kittur,MK Hubli,,Itagi Cross,Bagewadi,Halaga).
    It is to be started on top priority.

  2. kittur & mk hubli are well connected with NH4. so no need of having railway line running parallel to it. The proposed route seems good as it goes through bailhongal.

    • We need a Parallel line to NH4 so that the distance between BANGALORE AND MUMBAI has to be reduced,other wise Railway dept will run trains again via Solapur Gulbarga and Guntakal.

      • Imporatance must be given to City Connectivity so that routes are commercially viable.
        A New line from Lokapur Ramdurg Saundattti to connect Dharwad with Kudachi Bagalkot line is advisable,a link fro Saundatti to Bailhongal to Itagi Cross and later to Connect Londa Jn.
