High-speed bullet train project gains momentum

    High-speed bullet train
    The National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) in Vadodara has recently received the first consignment of Japanese-made goods and allied materials for an ambitious bullet train project. The consignment for the bullet train project, which was shipped to Mumbai and later brought to Vadodara via road, has reached the destination where the HSRTI (High Speed Rail Training Institute) is being set up by the NHSRCL. The training institute is spreading over an area of five hectares at the campus of the National Academy of Indian Railways in Vadodara. The consignment for the project includes 200 metre rails, 20 track slabs and reinforcement bars of 13 mm diameter. Managing Director of NHSRCL, Achal Khare, who visited the site recently where the work for laying the training tracks using the Japanese goods has started, was quoted saying that the track slabs manufactured from high strength concrete are currently made only in Japan whose Shinkansen technology they are adopting for the high speed rail project. The track slabs provide the required stability to run the high speed trains and that these track slabs will be manufactured in India but as of now, the 13 mm diameter reinforcement bars are not yet being made by any player in the country, he said.
