BENGALURU: A Parliamentary Standing Committee on Railways is visiting the city on Saturday (August 22) to seek a solution to the long-pending rail projects of the South Western Railway (SWR).
Former Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi will be leading the 31-member committee. Former ministers A K Antony and K H Muniyappa will also be part of the panel, said Chief Administrative Officer (Constructions) A K Gupta. The delay in vital new lines and doubling projects in the South Western Railway (SWR) will be reviewed during the meet, Gupta said.
Among the overdue important new projects for which an explanation would be sought are the new Bengaluru-Hassan railway line, Kadur-Chikkamagaluru-Sakleshpur broad guage line and the Hubballi-Ankola railway line projects.
