Dharwad-Kittur-Belagavi Railway Project Gets Push

HUBBALLI: The State budget, which was announced on Monday, has provided much-needed push to Dharwad-Kittur-Belagavi rail project with an allocation of ₹464 crore for the next financial year.

Rail activists have hailed the move, saying that it has given a fillip to the long-delayed mass transit project.
Connecting Dharwad-Belagavi via Kittur was one of the long pending railway projects as this route would save considerable time of the passengers.

The Centre had given the green signal for the laying of a direct railway line between Dharwad and Belagavi via Kittur as the existing route via Alnavar, Londa, and Khanapur takes almost three hours to reach Belagavi by train while by road it is an hour’s journey.
