    Projects were approved at a cost of Rs. 874.12 crore

    Projects cover a distance of 639.05

    This enables the operation of a greater number of coaching and freight trains

In light of an increased surge in demand for commuter and goods trains in the Bengaluru and Mysuru division of the Railways, 6 projects for the instalment of automatic signalling systems have been sanctioned by the Railway Board. “Railway Board has sanctioned the Bangalore city -Yeshwanthpur-Yelahanka stretch, Yeshwantpur-Arsikere section, Lottegollahalli-Hosur section, Whitefield-Jolarpet section, Baiyyappanahalli- Penukonda section via Channasandra and the Bangalore city- Mysuru stretch for work pertaining to automatic signalling. Total of six projects, covering a distance of 639.05 kilometres, have been approved at a cost of Rs. 874.12 Crores,” a press release from the South Western Railways stated. 

 South Western Railways highlighted the benefits of these projects. “This enhancement will enable the seamless operation of additional trains at shorter intervals, addressing the growing demands of commuters, freight traffic and fostering economic development in the region. Benefits of implementing automatic signalling are numerous. Firstly, it allows for the optimum utilisation of fixed assets such as platforms by ensuring the early clearance of coaching trains from stations. This means that trains can depart promptly, reducing delays and improving overall efficiency. Secondly, in sections where line capacity has exceeded 100% and saturation has occurred, the introduction of automatic signalling enables the operation of a greater number of coaching and freight trains. This helps to meet the growing demand for transportation while maintaining safety standards. Lastly, the average speed of trains can be enhanced as block sections are cleared faster, allowing for smoother and more efficient travel,” the press release mentioned.
