NEW DELHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): For constructing 18 Km of the viaduct between Anand and Sabarmati, National High-Speed Rail (HSR) has agreed with the IRCON- Dineshchandra JV for designing and construction. The entire journey will include two HSR stations, Ahmedabad and Sabarmati, for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed rail corridor.
The High-Speed Rail project of Mumbai-Ahmedabad is expected to get operational by 2026 as it is already delayed by more than three years. The High-Speed Rail will pass through the Ahmedabad junction and then merge with the Saraspur side of the existing Ahmedabad station. The Ahmedabad HSR station will be constructed over the existing railway platforms numbered 11 and 12. Moreover, the integration of Ahmedabad HSR station with all other modes of transport is also crucial. Therefore, national High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited has made a user-friendly station layout.
An integrated building is also designed to be constructed on the eastern side of the existing railway station of Ahmedabad. It is made for passenger transit to easily switch from one mode of transport to another mode of transport. The building is fully equipped with all amenities like elevators and escalators and other facilities like passenger lobby, booking office, tea/coffee kiosks etc.
The HSR station will also provide smooth connectivity to the passengers as it will be linked to the upcoming Sabarmati Passenger Hub.
The best part of the upcoming project is that both the HSR stations are environment friendly with all the water conservation provisions.
