The much awaited details of the Belgaum – Dharwad new railway line –

The 97 kms stretch will need Rs.545.550 crores and the Rate of return estimated by railways is 7.08%.

The first basic survey was done in 2003. The survey was submitted to the Railway board for approval and also the planning commission in 2012.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Please make a short route to hyderabad its so ridiculous 24 hours infact mumbai bangalore n hyderabad are equidistant from belgaum then y hyderabad is 24 hours joureny please make some other route as like the other two cities night we board n morning we reach.

  4. ಸುರೇಶ್ ಅಂಗಡಿ ಈ ಸಲ ಆರಿಸಿ ಬಂದ ಮೇಲೆ ಆದರು ಬೆಳಗಾವಿ ಧಾರವಾಡ ಹೊಸ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಹಳಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಈ ಭಾಗದ ಜನರ ಬಹುದಿನಗಳ ಬೇಡಿಕೆ ಈಡೇರಿಸಿ ಬರೀ ಸುಳ್ಳು ಹೇಳ ಬೇಡಿ

  5. Belagavi people want Rly between Dharwad and Bgm to reduce the distance at present, but again it stretched to 97 km,kindly keep the line straight & bring it down to 70 km or less so that it saves time for long distance travelers.

  6. Reaons for laying new rail route is to shorten the distance between belgavi and dharwar. So shortest route is best. Otherwise existing route be continued……..
