Bengaluru – Belagavi Super Fast Express train departs from Bengaluru at approximately 9 pm every night and arrives at Hubli around 3.30 am the following day. However, starting from October 1, this train has been halted at Hubli for one hour, causing delays in reaching Belagavi. Additionally, the train makes brief stops at Londa and Khanapur for 10-15 minutes along the way.
On 15/11/2023 the said train reached at 3 AM but left Hubballi at around 4.30 AM.
The unnecessary one-hour stop at Hubballi station for the Bengaluru-Belagavi Superfast train has resulted in numerous travelers from the Belagavi district suffering from daily delays. Previously, the train would leave Hubli station at 3.40 am and arrive at Belagavi railway station at 7.30 am.
However, due to the recent changes, the train now remains at Hubli railway station for one hour, departing at 4.30 am. Furthermore, occasional 10-15 minute halts are made at Londa and Khanapur stations during the journey. Consequently, the train, which used to reach Belagavi railway station at 7 now reaches post 7.30.
Passengers traveling from Bengaluru to Belagavi are forced to endure an unnecessary one-hour wait at Hubli station. Traveling by bus from Hubli to Belagavi is not a viable alternative to avoid this delay. Families find it challenging to transport their luggage to the bus stand, making it inconvenient. As a result, passengers are left with no choice but to remain on the train, waiting for their journey to continue.
