Good News! Udaipur-Ahmedabad will soon be less than 2 hours

After the Railways identified the six sections for high speed and semi-high speed rail corridors including Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad sections in January, the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited ((NHSRCL), in the latest development on the project, invited the first set of tenders for the 886 km long Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur-Ahmedabad high-speed corridor to kickstart preparations.

NHSRCL, on Tuesday, floated the tenders for collection of relevant data for the preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR). The data includes preparation of drawings of crossing bridges over rivers/canals/railways and roads including National Highways, State Highways, Expressway and major district roads along with general arrangement drawings (GADs) of proposed stations and maintenance depots. The bids have also been invited to carry out traffic study (ridership study) and data collection and associated survey work for DPR of the corridor.

The detailed project report will study the feasibility of the project by checking the land availability, traffic potential and alignment. On the basis of these factors, the Railway Board will decide if the route is fit for the high-speed or semi-high-speed corridor.
