New Dellhi: India will get its first bullet train very soon!
The bullet train is expected to cover 508 kms between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in about two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350 kmph and operating speed of 320 kmph. At present, Duronto Express takes about seven hours to cover the distance between the two financial centres.
Passengers will get the thrill of riding under the sea while travelling between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in the first bullet train of the country.
The 508 km long Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed rail corridor will have a 21km long tunnel under the sea.
While most part of the corridor is proposed to be on the elevated track, there will be a stretch after the Thane creek towards Virar which will go under the sea.
