Indian Railways eyes expanding the bullet train network! The National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL), which is implementing the country’s first bullet train project, linking Mumbai to Ahmedabad, has been asked to study the feasibility of 10 more bullet train corridors.
To conduct the survey for running bullet trains on 10 routes, the Railway Board has recently asked for Railway Ministry’s permission. Moreover, to finalize four routes, the ministry is likely to conduct a meeting on Wednesday, according to a Dainik Jagran report. To prepare a feasibility report and a Detailed Project Report (DPR), the NHSRCL would have to choose a firm.
It is being said that the entire bullet train project, comprising 10 routes would cover a distance of nearly 6,000 kilometres in total. The project has been estimated to cost around Rs 10 lakh crore. Read More
