New Delhi: Railways is planning a 500km long high-speed elevated rail corridor, to be built at a cost of Rs 50,000 crore, from Kasargod to Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, according to a report. The plan is to operate semi-high speed trains, which travel at a speed of 100-150 kmph, on this corridor.

More Information:

  • The project will be funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Mint reported.
