New location identified for train repair

Bangalore, Dec 23, 2013, DHNS:

To decongest the overcrowded City railway station, the Railways will be moving the maintenence and repair work of coaches to adjoining land near Binny Mill.

Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge told reporters on Monday that an extent of three acre and 20 gunta has been acquired from the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike for the purpose.

“In return, we have given them land of equal value at a different location. We will construct the terminus at a cost of Rs 25 crore,” he said. Kharge added that the maintenance work will be shifted to the new location once the facility is ready. This would help in accommodating more trains at the railway station, he added.

Kharge said that Yelahanka railway station will be remodelled to accommodate more platforms at a cost of Rs 18 crore. The work will begin in the next 15 days. He said a decision could be taken on the long-pending commuter rail project, only after the Railway Board receives the proposal from the State government.
