Mumbai to Delhi in just 7 hours?


By Manthan K Mehta

MUMBAI: If all goes as planned, your train travel time between the national and the commercial capitals of India could soon come down by at least half.

According to railway officials, the infrastructure for the Golden Rail Corridor, which will have trains running at semihigh speed (160-200 kmph) between New Delhi and Mumbai , is likely to cost around Rs 5,000 crore.

The cost, they say, is relatively low as the railways will not have to acquire land for the project.

Once the project takes off, the New Delhi-Mumbai travel time will be reduced to six to seven hours. At present, Rajdhani Express, the fastest train on the Indian railway , runs at 120-130 kmph and takes at least 16 hours to cover a distance of 1,400 km between the two cities.
