India is
developing for sure and we can see it’s sign clearly in this new bullet train
that is going to travel underwater tunnel. Yes, you read it right. We’re going
to get our very own underwater bullet train getting launched at Mumbai.
The first
route will be from Mumbai to Ahmedabad. There will also be an
underwater rail corridor of 21 Km through which it will pass, providing the
extra thrill of riding underwater.

The project is going to be built with the joint efforts of the National High-Speed
Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) and Japan. The cost is estimated to be Rs 97,636 crore. 81% of this
will be from a loan funding from Japan. It is a soft loan for 50 years at 0.1
per cent annual interest with 15 years’ moratorium.

The official said the loan agreement with Japan is slated
to be signed by the end of the year and construction work is likely to begin by
the end of 2018. It’s a first-of-its-kind project.

The bullet train is expected to cover 508 km between Mumbai and Ahmedabad
in about two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350 kmph and operating speed of 320 kmph.

The Railway Board Chairman along with the vice-chairman of
National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog and the secretaries of
the Departments of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Economic Affairs, and
Foreign Ministry have formed a joint committee for timely completion of this
project.

The Transport system of India is reaching another height
and we can’t be prouder enough about it. This is a sure step of progressing
forward and likely to benefit many!
