Bullet trains from Ahmedabad to Delhi on the cards

If all goes as per the reported plans, Delhi will soon get bullet trains. Reportedly, the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL), which is tasked to implement the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project, has invited tenders to collect data for bullet trains connecting Ahmedabad to Delhi, the country’s national capital.

The said corridor will be among eight high-speed networks that the railways is planning to have across the country, one of which is the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail (HSR) that is under construction.

India’s first bullet train project between Mumbai and Ahmedabad will be completed by December 2023, and 90 per cent of land acquisition tasks for the said project will be completed in the coming months.

Also, apart from the Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor, the other corridors planned across the country are the Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad (886 km), Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore (435 km), Delhi-Noida-Agra-Lucknow-Varanasi (865 km), Mumbai-Pune-Hyderabad (711 km), Mumbai-Nashik-Nagpur (753 km), and the Delhi-Chandigarh-Ludhiana-Jalandhar-Amritsar (459 km) sections.

The NHSRCL officials stated that although the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train corridor is 508 km long, the corridor between Ahmedabad and Delhi HSR, at 886 km, will be longer. As of now, tenders have been invited in this regard for preparing general arrangement drawings (GADs) of crossing bridges over canals/rivers and roads, including state and national highways, expressways for the Delhi-Ahmedabad corridor.

The NHSRCL is a joint venture of Indian Government and participating state governments for implementation of HSRs across the country. Referring to this, NHSRCL spokesperson Sushma Gaur stated that for Ahmedabad, this will be the second HSR corridor, further adding that they have already invited tenders to collect relevant data for the preparation of a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for 886 km long Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad HSR corridor.

Also, since the Ahmedabad HSR corridor will be joined with the main railway line, platform number 10, 11 and 12 have been reportedly dismantled as of now at the Kalupur railway station in Ahmedabad.
