Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha has said that the works on constructing the third entrance for Railway Station in the city, from Vani Vilas Water Works (VVWW) side, will begin in November.

The MP shared the details of the works during the review of progress of works under PM Gati Shakti, at the Office of Divisional Railway Manager (DRM), South Western Railway (SWR), Mysuru Division, here yesterday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had come to the city during International Day of Yoga (IDY) last year, had performed bhoomi puja for Gati Shakti project at an estimated cost of Rs. 483 crore, of which Rs. 346 crore has been earmarked for the development works of Mysuru Railway Station, added Simha. The tender under Gati Shakti project was invited on Apr. 24 and the technical bid will be opened on Aug. 30. Once the tender process is completed, the works will be launched in November and will be completed by three years, he explained.

The Mysuru Railway Station already has two entrances and third entrance has been planned on the model of Baiyyappanahalli and Yesvantpur Railway Stations of Bengaluru. The new entrance will be designed on the lines of Airport terminal with hi-tech facilities that include shopping mall, cafeteria and supermart among other modern amenities. Apart from Rs. 483 crore earmarked under PM Gati Shakti project, additional Rs. 200 crore will be spent on the development works of the Railway Station, totally spending Rs. 700 crore making it attractive.

    The rail over bridge(ROB) on ring road after you cross GRS fantasy park and going towards Manipal Hospital is available for only one side of ring road and the other needs to be is an eye soar especially when foreign IT delegates visit the Infosys campus via the ring road.I hope that is the ROB which is mentioned as KRS road in the article.
    While designing the new entrance for the station, do build two vertiports(helipads) at the station for future operations of eVTOLs ( electric vertical and landing aircraft).Saudi Arabia recently tested its first eVTOL air taxi in its futuristic NEOM city.In Mysuru we will needs vertiports for air taxi services from airport to the railway station, Chamundi hills and Brindavan gardens.Aerial Tourism in mysuru will be using eVTOLs in the future as the cost of operations is 8 cents a mile and even at 50 miles per hour the cost of operation will be $4/hour.Also before environmentalist raise their concern,it makes very less noise ,zero emission and can land in Chamundi hill without affecting the environment.

    Hwy Kini
    Yo do not get any prize, for dishing out the nonsense of conjuring up various things to attract tourism and to destroy Myosre.
    This MP will find that the state government assitance is reuires, and he has no power to dom things without the CM approving htem. Narendra Modi tried everything to buy off votes, but failed miserably.

    Hey Kid swamy
    It is a bit rich coming from you, who lied about visiting Europe and seeing dirty roadside cafes. Grow up, kid!
    Why would a grandpa, worry about a scoundrel grandon like you?
    Hello @Sanjay Kini, the rourism expert, the ecologist, the development pioneer,the highways expert, the railways expert, the mass transit ssupremo, and the expert on which doctor is good etc.. etc.. Now,you are an expert investigator!
    The reason why you are pissed off is: you do not like to be challenged, when you present a set of delirious examples like you have done above? Suadi Arabia, where camels roam about is hardly a country that India should be looking forwardc to in leaning to develop!
    Well, your problem is Googlitis- scouring the internet to find acronymns, examples etc. and presting them as solutions to problems raised in the SOM, , all in bad English! The purpose?
    BTW, it is ” Kindari Jogi”. Ofcourse, you have not read Kannada literature,and Kuvempu’s famous poem: ” Bommanahalli Kindari Jogi”. That shows your shallowness of knowledge.
    Senility means: ” a decrease in the mental ability to think,memory loss, decreased ability to concentrate, or remember in a person” How could a senile person in his 80s remember to use that long list of names ?
    You sound like suffering from SCHIZOPHRENIA, and you exhibit that condition so cleraly with that list. You are so convinced that this ghost person is in his 80s!
    You must be really a worst case of r SCHIZOPHRENIA, whicn needs urgent treatment

    @Sanjay Kini
    I am really insulted because, You have not included me in that list of yours.
    You must have taken quite a bit of time to compile that list. Those must be the ones who ridiculed your solutions of using helicopters, helipads, mono rail or magnetic levitation technology or even the technology of flying saucers, to bring more tourists into Mysuru, and alleviate traffic problems in Mysuru.
    I can see, you are particularly hurt, when ” Josephb Mundaserry, often corrected your English. ?Hence, he appears FIRST in that list!
    I can see, your pride is hurt, because, no one is recognising your genius.
    For a senile 80 year old man to conjure up those names, and use them regularly, suggests that your reasoning is totally flawed, as your recommendations often are! I am 40 year old, with good memory, and I cannot remember to use those many names!
    Are you sure, you are not a drug user?

    Widening the single-lane underbridge on ringroad and ROB on KRS road are more important. We don’t need new entrance with glass facade. Instead, provide escalators or lifts at existing platforms.
