Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet train project: With India looking to get its first bullet train network, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal recently took a ride in a Japanese bullet train. In his recent visit to Japan for the G20 ministerial meeting, the minister took out some time to ride in a bullet train.
After taking the high-speed train ride and going through its features, he stated that soon India will also experience the cutting-edge Shinkansen technology in partnership with Japan. He further added that the country’s first ever bullet train project, connecting Mumbai and Ahmedabad, will revolutionize train travel in the country.
India is adopting the Shinkansen technology for its maiden bullet train project since it is known for its safety and punctuality. While the initial few rakes for bullet train operations will be imported from Japan, eventually the coaches will be manufactured indigenously under PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ project.
The Japanese Shinkansen E5 bullet trains will be modified to suit Indian needs and climate conditions. Read More
