Railways Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Thursday mentioned that the work on India’s first bullet practice venture from Mumbai-Ahmedabad is occurring as per schedule.

Chatting with reporters in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar on Thursday, Vaishnaw mentioned, “… 270km long wire duct has been put in place. Work is going on as per schedule. The work of the Mumbai-Thane under-sea tunnel has also begun… The construction of bridges on eight rivers that will lie on the route is going on rapidly. Two bridges have already been completed. The work on Sabarmati terminal station is also nearly completed…”

On Monday, Vaishnaw had mentioned that the land acquisition for the Mumbai–Ahmedabad bullet practice venture has been accomplished throughout Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

In a put up on X, he mentioned the land acquisition is 100% whereas pier casting has been executed throughout 268.5 km and girder launching 120.4 km.

He added the 1389.49 hectares of land required for the venture was acquired.

The bold Japan-backed venture has been delayed as a result of earlier protests towards land acquisition. It was sought to be accomplished by 2023. Of the 508.17 km of the venture, 155.76 km is in Maharashtra, 384.04 km in Gujarat, and 4.3 km in Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

The Nationwide Excessive-Pace Rail Company Restricted (NHSRCL), which is overseeing the venture, mentioned all civil contracts have been awarded in Gujarat and Maharashtra. “The laying of [the] first Reinforced Concrete (RC) track bed for the MAHSR corridor track system as used in Japanese Shinkansen [bullet trains] has started in Surat and Anand. This is for the first time, the J-slab ballastless track system is being used in India,” NHSRCL mentioned in an announcement.

The unique value estimate of $14bn is believed to have risen to round $20bn.

In the meantime, speaking about constructing the capability of railways for Ayodhya Dham, Vaishnav mentioned, “There are five stations in Ayodhya and the stations are being developed to increase the capacity of all. The line coming from Lucknow is being doubled and the line going to Varanasi is also being doubled. The capacity of the line coming from Prayagraj and Gorakhpur are also being increased…”

The consecration ceremony on the Ram temple will probably be organised in Ayodhya on 22 January.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and 1000’s of seers from throughout the nation have been invited for the ceremony.

Greater than a lakh devotees are anticipated to descend on the temple city on the event of “pran pratishtha” (consecration).
