High-Speed Rail Lines On Mumbai-Ahmedabad-Delhi Route To Be Completed By March 2024: Railway Official

Bullet Train: The Western Railway (WR) is upgrading the rail lines on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad-Delhi route that will allow trains to run at 160 mph, and the work – under ‘Mission Raftaar’ – will be completed by March 2024, railway officials said on Friday.

Indian Railways expects that after upgrading rail lines, the first Vande Bharat sleeping train will be operational. The officials added that this could be the first train to run in the country.

‘Mission Raftaar,’ a WR initiative, is gaining momentum. WR authorities are working on two major trunk routes – 694-kilometre-long Mumbai Central-Nagda and 100-kilometre-long Vadodara -Ahmedabad – for Rs3,227 billion.

A protection wall covering 195 km is currently being built, and 30 km of the work has been completed. According to a WR official, a metal barrier fence has also been constructed between Mumbai and Ahmedabad on a 474-kilometre stretch out of 570 kilometres.

West Central Railway, on the other hand, is upgrading its rail network along the 545-kilometre route between Nagda and Mathura for Rs 2,664 crore.

The North Central Railway is upgrading the 82-kilometre route from Mathura-Palwal while the Northern Railway is working on the 57-kilometer stretch between Palwal and Delhi.

The ‘Mission Raftaar‘ project was approved for the first time in 2017-18. It requires strengthening rail tracks, bridges, and tunnels between two cities.

The project will also include upgrading the overhead cables that supply power to trains, installing ‘Kavachs’ along the route to improve safety and signalling, and fencing on both sides of rail lines to prevent trespassing.

Ashwini Vashnaw, the Minister of Railways, Communications, Electronics and Information Technology, replied in writing to a Rajya Sabha question on Friday that “Kavach” tenders had been awarded for Delhi – Mumbai and Delhi – Howrah corridors, which totaled approximately 3,000 route kilometers (RKM), and that work was in progress.

Indian Railways is preparing a Detailed Project Report and estimating another 6,000 RKM. So far, the total amount spent on the ‘Kavach” implementation is Rs 351.91 crore.

The WR official stated, “The work is at an advanced stage, and we aim to complete this rail upgrading falling under our jurisdiction before March next year.”

The travel time between Mumbai and Delhi will be reduced from 16 to 12 hours once the project is completed.

The railway officials stated that Vande Bharat sleeper train will be a game changer and could replace older versions on this route. However, Rajdhani Shatabdi Duronto trains are likely to continue.

Sources claim that out of the 86 Vande Bharats, 11 are sleeper trains. The railways plan to run 400 Vande Bharat trains nationwide in four years.

There are different Vande Bharat versions, including Vande Bharat Sleeper or Metro. Railways has ordered 240 additional Vande Bharat Sleeper Coaches, expected to cost Rs 30,000 crore.
