hubballi: Iisc Moots Corridor From Yeshwantpur to Hubballi | Bangalore News

Bengaluru: The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has proposed a high-speed rail corridor from Bengaluru to Hubballi.
According to IISc, the HSR route could be taken with the current/proposed railway network with a journey length of 400 km and stations at Yeshwantpur, Tumakuru, Chitradurga, Davanagere and Hubballi.
IISc also conducted a case study for HSR from its Bengaluru campus to its new campus in Challakere. It is also proposed to develop Challakere in Chitradurga district as a ‘science and technology city’. The case study describes how the productivity of a research institute can be affected by variations in the level of transport connectivity to Challakere.
The research paper, titled “Quantifying the Broader Economic Impacts of High-Speed ​​Connectivity and Accessibility: A Case of the Karnataka High-Speed ​​Rail,” is authored by Saransh Sahu, a former MTech student at IISc, and Ashish Verma, Professor and Organizer, IISc Sustainable Transportation Lab, Department of Civil Engineering.
“Transport connectivity is assessed under four scenarios: current road network and high-speed train with speeds of 180, 250 and 320 km/h. The case study result shows that the maximum achievable productivity is affected by the level of transport connectivity,” the research paper states.
“The results show that the level of transport connectivity is a key driver of institutional productivity. Through the IISc Challakere campus case study, it is demonstrated that potential industries setting up campuses in the science city could benefit from the HSR route which reduces travel time from Bengaluru to Challakere,” it said. -he declares. “Faster and more affordable transportation encourages more workers to live off campus and travel frequently. With the increase in the number of workers moving out, the investment required for infrastructure and living services will also decrease.
