The South Western Railways will take up work on automatic signalling between KSR Bengaluru (Majestic or City Railway Station) – Bengaluru Cantonment section in the period between Wednesday and Friday. This automatic signalling system will facilitate faster movement of all trains travelling on this section and will also facilitate the addition of newer services as part of the much-awaited full-fledged suburban rail system for Bengaluru. 

Work on this section will lead to cancellation of 10 trains connecting Bengaluru to nearby towns like Kolar, Tumakuru and those to Whitefield.

In addition, many interstate trains will be partially cancelled.

Railway officials said that Thursday being a national holiday on account of Independence Day, will minimise inconvenience to passengers. 

The works on this section are being taken up after Bengaluru Cantonment-Baiyyappanahalli stations became the first sector in the entire South Western Railway network to get automatic signalling systems in February. Subsequently, Bengaluru Cantonment-Whitefield section was also revamped with this automatic signalling mechanism.
