In the month of August 2017, POWERGRID has partnered with Indian Railway for Electrification of Un-electrified Railway Tracks under this the Londa-Miraj 189 rkm at a Cost Rs 208.15 crore has been proposed.

Indian Railways had launched Mission Electrification on 3rd Nov’16 for electrification of 24,400 route kilometre (rkm) of BG network in next five years i.e. almost equal to what has been done from introduction of electric traction since 3rd Feb’1925.

As part of Mission Electrification, in recent past 10 different electrification projects covering 2516 route kilometer at a cost of about Rs 2797 Cr. have been finalized in a short duration.

The actual time when the same would be complete is not known.

  1. We have only one overnight express train Viz Bangalore Miraj Kolhapur Rani Chennamma Exp which is always overcrowded. Please introduce an overnight Train between Bangalore-Belagavi on regular basis, presently festival special Train is being run between Bangalore – Belagavi. Also a day time express Train is desired otherwise attach additional coaches between Bangalore/Mysore – Miraj by Train Nos.11021/22 and 11005/6 ; 11035/6

  2. Unfortunately Karnataka is the 3rd state in India having the weakest Railway Infrastructure.Most of the Trunk Routes pass through the Peripheral portions of Karnataka ie_Raichur,Gulbarga,Bangalore,Bangerpet,Mangalore There was no improvement in the Railway Infrastructure in karnatak inspite of many Railway Ministries being from Karnataka.All the neighboring States and even the backward states like Bihar have a Electrified Double Track. God knows when the Railway Structure in Karnataka will improve. .
