Bengaluru: Huskur could get railway station; Heelalige & Bellandur amenities to be rebuilt | Bengaluru Information


BENGALURU: In a reduction to passengers, many railway stations alongside Byappanahalli-Hosur part are prone to get a facelift within the subsequent two years.
This is able to be attainable because of the doubling work undertaken by Karnataka Rail Infrastructure Growth Enterprises (Ok-RIDE), a three way partnership between the railway ministry and state authorities. The deadline for Byappanahalli and Hosur (48km) doubling work is December 2023.
Whereas Huskur close to Electronics Metropolis is prone to get a brand new railway station, previous and dilapidated station buildings at Heelalige, Bellandur Highway and Anekal will likely be demolished. Maranayakanahalli station constructing, situated between Hosur and Anekal stations and which was inaugurated in August 2020, may also be rebuilt. FOBs will likely be offered at three stations — Bellandur, Heelalige and Anekal — for passengers to entry platforms.
Ok-RIDE’s plan to construct a station at Huskur is anticipated to profit 1000’s of individuals, notably techies in Electronics Metropolis. In comparison with the present Heelalige station, which is round 10km from Electronics Metropolis, Huskur is simply 5km away, which might be extra handy for residents.
Huskur station, which is developing between Heelalige and Carmelaram stations, can have 4 rail tracks. Pruthvin Reddy, a rail activist, welcomed the plan and stated: “Huskur station will assist individuals working in Bommasandra and Veerasandra industrial areas in addition to techies working in Electronics Metropolis Section 2. Common passenger trains will also be stopped at Huskur.”
He stated as soon as the doubling is accomplished, stoppage for long-distance specific and mail trains will be offered at Anekal and Heelalige stations. “The railways will have the ability to run extra trains as soon as the doubling work is over and new station buildings can have higher facilities in addition to FOBs, which is able to profit passengers,” stated Reddy. “It’s unlucky that the Maranayakanahalli station constructing which was constructed final yr may also be dismantled,” he added.
In accordance with Ok-RIDE’s plan, Bellandur can have 5 rail tracks, Huskur 4, Heelalige 5, Anekal 4 and Maranayakanahalli six.
“Stations like Bellandur (two platforms) and Heelalige (three) will likely be linked with FOBs and these current station buildings may also be razed. In Anekal, two platforms will likely be linked with FOB. Stations like Maranayakanahalli are being demolished for optimum utilisation of area and in addition to accommodate extra tracks. There may be big industrial and real-estate potential for stations alongside the Hosur line,” stated an official.
Many passengers travelling on the Bengaluru-Hosur route had been complaining about insufficient trains and facilities at these stations.
