    In a bid to build world-class rail network across cities in Maharashtra, Indian Railways has allocated a whopping amount of ₹67,000 crore for the development of sub-urban rail network in Mumbai, which is used by one third of total Railway passengers in India. In this connection, it has recently inked MoU with Indian Railways for introducing Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS), which is going to be the first-of-its-kind project in the country as it will connect adjoining towns of Nagpur. The project aimed at linking railway line to Metro coaches on broad gauge network & creating a Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) in the city. Railway Minister said that his ministry is also trying to execute a plan for setting up railway line across the national highways. One such proposal is to connect Nagpur–Mumbai Super Express Way (Samriddhi Mahamarg) to Railway line connecting Nagpur-Mumbai. The construction of such a high speed Railway Corridor will make it feasible to cover distance between Nagpur & Mumbai in just 5 hours Under the upcoming project, the speed of air conditioned metro coaches running on broad gauge line of Railway will be 100 km/hr which is much more than ordinary passenger trains and that this MoU signing will pave the way for towns like Bhandara and Wardha distance from Nagpur thereby coming closer to the developed satellite cities.
