Rlys should expedite projects: CM to Centre

 
In his letter to the Union Minister Mamata Banerjee, Yeddyurappa said the average rail density in the state was only 16 kms per 1,000 sq kms of geographical area.

The density was less compared to the national average and that of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu. He sought early implementation of several projects on a priority basis.

The CM also proposed to double the state’s share of its investment in railway projects, provide land for new projects free of cost and bear 50 per cent of the cost of new projects.
Projects proposed: Hubli - Ankola (167 kms); Bijapur - Shahbad (140 kms); Shimoga - Harihar (84 kms); Gadag - Haveri (84 kms); Whitefield - Kolar - Mulbagal (52 kms); Kuduchi - Bagalkot (142 kms); Tumkur - Davangere (210 kms); Alamatti - Koppal (150 kms); Londa - Goa (doubling - 109 kms). The proposed cost of these projects is Rs 5,809 crore.
