One step closer to High Speed Rail connecting Delhi and Mumbai

06 juil. 2020

India’s two largest cities and financial hubs may soon be connected by a 1320 km-long high-speed rail following the successful completion of the feasibility study carried out by Tractebel and its partner.

Tractebel has joined forces with its partner to finalise the detailed feasibility study of the 1320 km-long high-speed rail project to connect New Delhi and Mumbai, India’s two largest cities and financial hubs, a part of the proposed Diamond Quadrilateral Network of High-Speed Rail in India. This impressive project expects to cut in half the time it takes to travel by conventional rail between the two cities, currently at 14 hours and will only be double than the air travel.

The study started with 9 potential routes between Delhi and Mumbai and after a comprehensive analysis with key 21 indicators, grouped in 5 categories of Engineering & Operation, Traffic Analysis, Environmental, Resettlement & Rehabilitation and Economic Evaluation the final route was arrived at in close consultation with the client, the High Speed Rail Corporation of India (HSRC). The study includes 5 intermediate stations, two terminal stations and all related infrastructure.

“This project creates a strong identity with efficient and eco-friendly alignment. Its fully in line with our purpose by reducing carbon footprint through numerous green initiatives including technology innovation. One more example of how Tractebel is helping engineer a zero-carbon future”, said Rahul Jotshi, Project Manager for Tractebel in India.
