The Railway Board has received a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the proposed 700-kilometer Bullet train between Mumbai and Nagpur from the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL).
This could be in addition to the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation’s 700-kilometer Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Mahamarg (MSRDC).
Wardha, Khapri Depot, Pulgaon, Malegaon Jahangir, Jalna, Karanja Lad, Mehkar, Shirdi, Nashik, Aurangabad, Igatpuri, and Shahapur are all possible destinations for the bullet prepare hall.
The DPR, which was completed in mid-February this year, was submitted to the Indian Railway Board on February 28 and is awaiting directives, according to the officers. According to the idea, the train may pass through ten districts, reducing travel time between the two cities. “Right now, it takes roughly 12 hours to go there by car.” “The bullet train is supposed to cut it down to four hours,” says a knowledgeable official.
The NHSRCL is working on the first bullet train project in the country, connecting Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
The Maharashtra Train Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited, a joint venture between the Indian Railways and the Maharashtra government, is planning a semi-high-speed rail link between Mumbai and Pune. A feasibility study has also been started in this regard.
