Mumbai: Civil works for the 508 km long Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train corridor is set to begin in June this year, as railway authorities changed the date of completion from 2023 to August 15, 2022. The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor (MAHSR) is a visionary move to upgrade India’s rail network.
- “Geo-technical surveys have already been done and civil works will begin in June 2018 after we receive the green signal for the entire corridor,” A NHSRCL (National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd) official said.
- There have also been tests beneath the sea bed for the underground section of this project.
- This indicates that the project could extend from Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) to Boisar; 7 km of the total 21 km journey would be beneath the sea.
