Ahmedabad: As many as 16 Indian companies have shown interest in development of the multi-model terminal hub at Sabarmati of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project, the National High Speed Rail Corporation Ltd (NHSRCL) said. This is the first tender for a station on the bullet train route.

More Information:

  • The Sabarmati terminal hub will act as originating point for those boarding the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train from Ahmedabad and as terminating point for those boarding the bullet train from the BKC (Bandra-Kurla Complex) in Mumbai.
  • It will be based on the theme of Mahatma Gandhi’s famous Dandi March of 1930.
  • Dhananjay Kumar, spokesperson of the NHSRCL, said that the 16 agencies bought bid documents during a pre-bid meeting here.
  • “All the companies are based in India,” he said but did not disclose their names.
  • The last date for submission of bids are October 5.
  • The tender for developing the multi model hub was floated last month.
  • Once the bid is awarded, work on the project, expected to cost around Rs 300-400 crore, will start within one month, and take 30 months for completion, according to the official.
  • The high speed rail corridor is proposed to start operating from August 15, 2022.
  • The terminal building will be a major interchange hub facilitating passengers to have a seamless connectivity with the Indian railway network, the Ahmedabad metro and the BRT corridor.
  • A pathway will connect the hub to the platforms from where the passengers can catch the high speed train.
  • The terminal building is also proposed to be developed as a major business hub with office space and hotel usage.
  • The major physical work of the project is expected to begin from January next year.
