Indian Railways is all set to make your travel plans that much more exciting (and shorter), with the world’s highest railway line project, connecting Ladakh and New Delhi in 20 hours. The national transporter is planning to build the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh line along the Indo-China border.
The launch of this route is supposed to boost tourism in the Ladakh region, which is now only accessible by air or road. Even the road or air connectivity is sometimes affected as the area receives heavy snowfall. Scouting for the location of the first phase has been completed, PTI reports.
The 465-km railway line will be constructed with an estimated cost of Rs 83, 360 crore and will have the highest road point of 5, 360 metres above mean sea level. The project will have 74 tunnels, 124 major bridges and 396 minor bridges with 30 stations, The Economic Times reported. Read More
