Mumbai–Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Project is India’s first high-speed rail line connecting Mumbai with Ahmedabad with route length of 508 km. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023 but has been delayed due to land acquisition issues particularly in Maharashtra and now expected to become fully operational by 2027 with some portions in Gujarat to become operational by 2023 as 95% land is already acquired in Gujarat for this project in comparison to just 24% in Maharashtra. Civil construction activities have also began in Gujarat.
Once completed, the travel distance time between the two cities will reduced to 2 hrs with trains operating at top speed of 320 km per hour.
