Train Speed Increase Inspection on Bangalore – Mangalore Rail Line : VIDEO

Speed increase inspection was carried out on the Chikbanavar – Nelamnagala Section which is a part of the Bangalore – Mangalore Single line via Hassan.

Presently the sectional speed here is limited to only 50 KMPH due to gradients and curves.

This was the max permissible speed certified when the line was open to traffic in the year 2017.

The Railways are now inspecting the line again to increase the max permissible speed limit from 50 KMPH to 100 KMPH.

Once the speed trials are successful trains on the Bangalore -Hassan – Mangalore section can see some reduction in Travel time.
