Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had a meeting with MoSR Suresh Angadi and other railway officials and has given his approval for the Dharwad-Kittur-Belagavi new railway line.


In the meeting chief minister gave in-principle approval to provide land free of cost & also share the cost with the Railways in respect of the new railway line between Belagavi & Dharwad via Kittur.

In principle approval for Dharwad-Kittur-Belagavi new railway line- BSYAs the present Dharwad-Belagavi railway line passes through Londa, it takes more time to travel by rail than by road. It has been a long-standing demand of public and elected representatives of Karnataka to lay a direct line between Dharwad and Belagavi preferably via Kittur. To implement this work, the Final Location Survey for Dharwad-Kittur-Belagavi (90Km) is now included in the Budget 2019-20.

The proposed new railway line passes through Dharwad, Kittur, and Hirebagewadi to reach Belagavi. The distance between Belagavi and Dharwad will reduce by 31 Kms once this new line is laid. This will benefit the public of Dharwad and Belagavi, making the journey between these two smart cities easier and quicker. It will also enable the people of Belagavi to reach Bengaluru, the capital city of State of Karnataka directly.

  1. Making double line would increase the frequency of trains as well reduce the travel time also.
    Along with citizen of both cities, villagers and villages between two cities also get developped.

  2. Sir i Request to you sir please 1 min stop LTT exp Hubli to Mumbai pimpari or chinwad it is helpful to North Karnataka people so many stay at pimpari and chinwad sir

  3. That’s good to hear. Belgaum-Kittur-Dharward line is the need of the hour. Yeah, double lane much recommended. But to villages do provide required amenities (water, power, sewage system, roads, bus stops, schools, colleges, railway connectivity etc). But please don’t destroy the natural beautiful villages #InWorld. Don’t convert them to cities where we live in today’s life where every breath is unhealthy. Villages and village life are the most beautiful I found which we are missing and I truly regret that.
