The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor (MAHSR) is a visionary move to upgrade India’s rail network. A National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd (NHSRCL) official said.
While work is in progress to bring on track India’s first bullet train – the Mumbai-Ahmedabad line – the Indian Railways is highly convinced with the idea that it would be more logical to introduce the highly-awaited bullet trains for shorter routes, rather than long distances.
Indian Railways is planning to connect four prime Indian cities, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennaiand Kolkata with high-speed trains. These trains will run at 160 kmph, against the current 88-90 kmph.
Amidst the discussions about all the good and bad of Indian Railways, including the constant need of cleaner trains and faster trains, and so many other things, the authority running the most important transportation system in India has seen a notable growth.
