Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

A note from India

The French are part of this development, but the Japanese have a piece of the action as well. The Economic Times files the report and it’s up to you to translate this into regular English.

NEW DELHI: High speed trains appear to have caught the fancy of states across regions. Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have approached the Railway ministry, expressing interests in having high speed bullet train corridors in their respective states. The Railways are expected to sign a memorandum of understanding with the French Railway for sharing technical expertise on high speed rail, a senior Railway official said.

The high-speed corridor comprises four routes and is estimated to cost about Rs 25,000 crore for each route. Trains will run at an average speed of 250-350 km/hour on these corridors. The proposed routes — Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar, Mumbai-Baroda-Ahmedabad, Chennai-Bangalore-Coimbatore and Howrah-Asansol-Patna — were announced in the current Rail Budget.
