INDIA: A 10-car variant of JR East’s Series E5 Shinkansen trainset has been selected to operate the country’s first high speed line between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, according to the Ministry of Railways. Indian Railways is expected to order an initial build of 25 trains at an estimated cost Rs50bn.
Construction of the 508 km line is due to get underway in 2018, following a groundbreaking ceremony which is expected to take place during a visit by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe later this year. Completion is envisaged for 2023. Geological surveys began in February, following the signing last December of an accord between the government, the National High Speed Rail Corp and Japan International Co-operation Agency.
