India’s first bullet train project launched

The countdown to India’s first bullet train from Ahmedabad to Mumbai began with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe launching the Rs 1.10 lakh crore project.

Modi described the ambitious project, which is expected to be completed by 2022 and will cut travel time between the two cities from seven hours to less than three, as a “big gift from Japan to India”.

The government wants to start the Ahmedabad-Mumbai High Speed Rail Network on August 15, 2022 to mark India s 75th year of Independence.

The train would cover the distance of over 500 km between the two cities in less than three hours.
