Hubballi: Striving towards the vision of a Carbon Neutral Railway by 2030, fast-tracking electrification of its network, South Western Railway has achieved 511.7 Route Kms of Electrification as of 28.03.2022 surpassing the Railway board target of 459 Route km for the Financial year 2021 – 22.

In the previous financial year 2020-21, South Western Railway had completed 476.7 Route km of electrification of its network.

The following sections over South Western Railway have been commissioned after electrification during March 2022:
Yelahanka – Chikkaballapur (45 Route Kms), Tumakuru – Nitturu (27 Route Kms), Sivadi – Omluru (44 Route Kms), Hosadurga – Chikjajur (30 Route Kms), Alnavar – Ambewadi (26 Route Kms) Gadag – Hole Alur(48 Route Kms ), Kudachi – Ghataprabha (47 Route Kms ) and Londa – Tinaighat (11 Route Kms).

General Manager Sanjeev Kishore has stated that no stone is left unturned to achieve and exceed targets. He said that the close coordination and cooperation between Divisions and among Operations and Electrical Departments enabled timely availability of line blocks to erect electrical infrastructure. He has expressed his gratitude for the excellent efforts of CORE, RVNL, and PGCIL which are the executing agencies if electrification works over the South Western Railway.

With the completion of this electrification, South Western Railway will run more trains with electrical engines for a major part of the route which is expected to reduce the consumption of diesel considerably on a daily basis. This will not only reduce diesel and fossil fuel dependency but also enhance the line capacity and speed up of trains improving punctuality.

From about 200+ RKM in 2016, the electrified track on SWR has now risen to .1734 out of a total of 3566 Route Kms of its network.

Munirabad- Mehabub Nagar new railway line: SWR aims to complete 18.5 KM of track between Karatagi and Sindhanur.
