Earlier in June this year, Vaishnaw announced that India could get its first high-speed train operational by 2026. He mentioned that good progress was being made to make India’s first high-speed train India operational between Surat and Bilimora in Gujarat in 2026.

He traveled to Surat in June this year to inspect the progress of the government’s ambitious Ahmedabad-Mumbai high-speed rail project.

“We are keeping the target of running the first high-speed train between Surat and Bilimora in 2026. The progress is very good and we are confident to run the train by then,” he told reporters. .

Bilimora is a town in Navsari district in southern Gujarat. The project aims to operate the high-speed rail between Ahmedabad and Mumbai on a high-speed rail (HSR) corridor at a speed of 320 km/h, covering a distance of 508 km and 12 stations.

The high-speed train is expected to reduce travel time between the two cities to around three hours from the current six hours. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is funding 81% of the project cost, which is estimated at 1.1 million crores.

He also inspected the operation of a segmental casting yard of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor near Vaktana village in Choryasi taluka of Surat, and also visited the Antroli railway station under construction under the project.
