If a ICF sleeper rake able to reach BZA in 4 hr 10 min. What about all AC LHB trains ??
So a good high speed shatabdi express needed in this that it help to reduce the pressure on NH9.
If Shathabdi can start from Lingapalli with stops Begumpet, Secunderabad Warangal its enough.
Lingampalli - 17:15
- 17 :48
SC - 18:02 - 18:10
WL - 19:50
BZA - 22:20
Sure many prefers it over bus.

I would disagree bro in the softest way possible.An ICE for such a long distance is a No-No given that it takes ages to get to E2E.

That's what...
actually SC-BZA is fit for 120 kmph for all AC trains. That to shatabdi express with 6-7 coaches can accelerate like a EMU.
If it stick to the above schedule then they can run reduce it further.

On the other hand i totally agree that some stretches are crying for ICEs.
Vijaywada/Guntur - Vizag
Vijaywada - Tirupati

Vizag - Bhubaneswar (to help Vijayanagaram,Palasa,Srikakulam,Sompeta,Icchapuram and Berhampur)

Its not about E2E but for inter town movement. when janmabhommi was extended to Sc people of Rajahmumdry, TDD, EE started to go in daytime and this is created termendous pressure even with 11 second CC coaches its difficult to get confirmed reservation in short time is non season also. It can cover the distance in 12hrs just a night train. I have already mentioned that duronto slot change with daily will take care of E2E passengers. The tickets are available for next week in duronto from vskp to Sc . Even the link express they are 5 bogies unreserved to kazipet and half of the passengers are to secunderbad now leaving less space for VSKP-BZA which is the need of the hr. Shatabdi will cater only to 500-600 whereas ICE can cater to 1500-2000 passengers and reduce passengers occupying general compartments in long distance trains.
