India Is Building An Underwater Bullet Train
This ambitious project by the Indian government envisions a modernization campaign for the Indian Railways. Currently, a nonstop train takes more than 7 hours barring constant delays to reach Mumbai from Ahmadabad.
The underwater stretch of the railway line is 21 km and the length is 508 km in total.
The project is going to cost more than 12 billion dollars and the Indian government has already taken the financial help of the Japanese to kick-start the progress on this pioneering project in the world’s largest democracy.
Construction work is expected to start in 2018 and millions of people will use it every year to commute between the two cities.
