NHRSCL may begin Gujarat leg of bullet train project first

The National High Speed Rail Corporation (NHSRCL) might open the Gujarat leg of the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train first if it could not acquire land in Maharashtra in the next three months.

As per NHRSCL, the deadline of 2023 for completing the project was not feasible, and civil works on Gujarat side were expected to be completed by 2024.

NHSRCL has acquired 95 percent of the land for the 352 km stretch of the project in Gujarat, but has been able to acquire only 23 percent of land for the 156 km stretch in Maharashtra. NHSRCL will have to consider opening the Gujarat leg of the bullet train in Phase-I and the Maharashtra leg in Phase-II.

For the Gujarat leg of the project, contracts worth Rs 32,500 crore have been awarded for construction of 325 km stretch and five stations. The bullet train will have eight stations in Gujarat and four in Maharashtra.

Tenders for Sabarmati and Ahmedabad stations and 18 km stretch in the city will be released on 25 March 2021, while those for Vadodara station and seven to eight km stretch in that city will be released in June 2021.

The original deadline of completing the project in 2023 is not feasible as a year was lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic and land acquisition issues in Maharashtra.

NHSRCL will need 24 sets of rolling stock for high-speed trains, of which 18 will be imported from Japan, while six will be manufactured in India. Japan has agreed to allow manufacture of six sets of rolling stocks in India. The manufacturer in Japan will tie up with an Indian company.

The alignment at Vadodara station has been changed due to various constraints. The new alignment will save roughly Rs 2,000 crore.
