MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): The government is placing a high priority on the planned High-Speed Rail Project between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, which would also be the country’s first Bullet Train project.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that the forthcoming Mumbai-Ahmadabad High-Speed Rail project is a national necessity that will cement Mumbai’s character as the city of dreams.
The Prime Minister also stressed that the government’s objective is to complete the Bullet Train project as soon as possible. The National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) is implementing the MAHSR Project.
For the upcoming Mumbai – Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor C-5 Package, the NHSRCL has inked an agreement with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Limited to design and develop a roughly eight-kilometre-long viaduct in Vadodara, Gujarat, including a High-Speed Rail station.
The Vadodara High-Speed Rail station would be built over the existing platform number 7 of the Vadodara railway station in order to achieve seamless integration with Indian Railways.
According to the firm, this integration will provide travelling customers with the convenience of a seamless transition between high-speed rail and national transporter.
Darshana Jardosh, the Minister of State for Railways, recently reviewed the MAHSR’s work at the project site in Gujarat, between the cities of Surat and Vapi.
The minister began her visit by inspecting the Casting yard at Ch. 243 in Padgah village, located in the Navsari district, for preparatory works of girder casting scheduled for castings such as Pile cap casting at Ch. 242 P42 and P23.
The minister’s next stop was the Casting yard at Ch. 238 (Nasilpore Village, Navsari district), where she saw heavy equipment like an 1100 T straddle carrier and bridge gantries on exhibit.
