Hubballi: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai announced on Sunday June 26 that work on the Dharawad-Belagavi railway project would soon begin. He said that the project is in the final stages of getting clearances.

Bommai was speaking after inaugurating a textile showroom at Tilakwadi here.

“Grants for the Dharwad-Belagavi railway project have been approved. Belagavi is a major commercial hub where many industries are coming up. Soon after the land acquisition process completes, work on the project will begin. The necessary clearance in this regard has been granted by the Union government,” he said.

The project was initially proposed decades ago to connect north Karnataka with the ports of Uttara Kannada. Although work was started from Hubballi to Kalaghatagi, it was not launched from Kalaghatagi to Ankola via Yellapur due to objections. A corridor for elephants and the Kali Tiger Reserve are located in the Western Ghats, which is where the proposed railway line will pass. Bommai expressed hope that the project will get clearances this year.
