The Indian Railways in its new draft National Rail Plan (NRP) released on Friday stated that by 2051 several cities across India including Hyderabad will be connected via bullet trains. The development comes close on the heels of the National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) floating tenders for preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Mumbai-Pune-Hyderabad bullet train project.
The draft NRP aims to develop a corridor between Hyderabad and Bengaluru by extending the Mumbai-Hyderabad line proposed earlier. This new corridor will connect Mumbai to Chennai and help bring cities in North India such as Jammu, Amritsar, Delhi and Jaipur closer to Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Mumbai.
Apart from the corridor between Hyderabad and Bengaluru, the NRP released by Railway Board CEO VK Yadav plans India’s most ambitious infrastructure programme aiming to develop new industrial cities as ‘Smart Cities’ and converging next-generation technologies across infrastructure sectors.
The NRP also aims to develop Nagpur-Hyderabad (NHIC) and Delhi-Nagpur (DNIC) as industrial corridors under its National Industrial Corridor Development Programme
The two industrial corridor projects are among 11 projects to be developed in four phases up to 2024-25. Apart from the two industrial corridors, the draft NRP is focused at establishing a dedicated freight corridor (DFC) between North-South between Delhi-Chennai via Itarsi-Nagpur-Vijayawada.
