Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train work is in full swing. More than 95% of land acquisition work has been completed in Maharashtra, including 100% in the Mumbai Suburban district.
Moreover, 90% of the work on the country’s first multimodal hub at Sabarmati in Gujarat is done. If all goes as per plan, by the end of February 2023, the Sabarmati multimodal hub, terminating point of the country’s first bullet train, will be ready.
Ground work on the Mumbai section of the bullet train is likely to begin soon as all necessary permissions, including environment and forest clearances, were received after the government in Maharashtra changed.
On Saturday, a media trip was organised by the corporation to show the current status of the multimodal hub. About 6.7km of viaduct is completed, which includes 2km of continuous viaduct near Navsari and 4.7km erected at different locations.
After completion of the tendering process, ground work will begin.
