Indian Railways has chalked out a mammoth plan for upgrading the railway tracks from New Delhi Railway Station to Howrah and from New Delhi to Mumbai, thereby reducing almost by 5 hours.
The work will be completed in the next 4 years after spending approximately Rs 13,490 crores. According to Zee Business/Hindi, under this initiative to upgrade the track between New Delhi and Howrah, Indian Railways will have to spend about Rs 6684 crore, while upgrading the track between New Delhi and Mumbai will cost around Rs 6806 crore.
Travel time to reduce by five hours
Currently, Howrah Rajdhani takes about 17 hours to travel from Delhi to Howrah and after the upgradation of the track, this distance will be covered by the Rajdhani train in about 12 hours, saving up to five hours.
Similarly, the Rajdhani train running between New Delhi and Mumbai takes 15.5 hours, but after the track upgradation, it will take maximum 10 hours to cover the distance. Read More
