Status of Ahmedabad Mumbai bullet train project

The much delayed bullet train project from Ahmedabad to Mumbai is trying to make up for the five year loss of time with the railway board and Gujarat government working overtime to make progress

The project had since overcome a major hurdle with the change of regime in Maharashtra last year when BJP became part of the state government

One of the notable achievements is the completion of 61.3 kilometers of viaduct, which includes a continuous viaduct of 12.6 kilometers near Vadodara and the construction of 48.7 kilometers at various other locations," an official of the National High Speed Rail Corporation ( NHRCL) was quoted by media reports.

Construction activities are currently in full swing across the alignment, which passes through eight districts of Gujarat and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Work on the eight high-speed rail stations, spanning from Vapi to Sabarmati, is progressing at various stages. Notably, the Anand/Nadiad HSR station has achieved a significant milestone by completing the concourse level, which is the first level of the station, spanning 425 meters in length. Rail level slab casting has commenced at Surat, Anand, and Bilimora HSR station," said an official.

In addition, bridge construction work is underway over important rivers such as Narmada, Tapti, Mahi, and Sabarmati. The Par River Bridge has become the first river bridge to be completed, accomplishing this feat in January 2023.

A dedicated training facility with three trial lines has been established at the Surat Depot. Approximately 20 Japanese experts are actively providing intensive training to Indian engineers, supervisors, and technicians, certifying their skills and knowledge.

Asked about progress of this Project in Maharashtra , an official said, "Work of construction of underground station in BKC and tunnel up Shilphata has already started, which will be completed within 5 year.

Work on the Ahmedabad Mumbai High-Speed  ( 508 km) bullet train project started way back in 2017 and was scheduled to be completed in 2023.

As per the current schedule Rs Two Lakh crore project is likely to be completed 2028 if everything goes well. The project is fully funded by an interest free loan from a Japanese bank.
