The railways needs to fix the timings conflict at the tri-junction betweenBaiyappanahalli and KR Puram.

It has become a daily affair for three to four coaches of the trains waiting for the signal before Baiyappanahalli stationendupblockingtheHosur line. Commuters of Yeshwantpur- Hosur trains have complained several times about the issue but are yet to see any change. The railways should extend the length of the curvature where the trains wait for the signalor change the timings to avoid the clash.

This is also necessary to make the local trains reliable if the railways wants to make any difference in passengers’ travel pattern. “The Kannur Express blocksthetrackfor20minutes in the morning. In the evening, it is the train from Karaikal that delays the journey of regular commuters by at least half an hour, ”SuhasNarayanamurthy, a regular commuter, said.
