Not just Ahmedabad, but Pune, too, will be connected via the Bullet train from Mumbai. The High Speed Rail Corporation has decided to take up 7 smaller corridors connecting two or more cities in the near future.
To begin with, in the pipeline, there is one connecting Mumbai with Pune as well. "These will be namely those corridors that will allow people to reach anywhere between one to three hours. This way, we can directly compete with the airlines as the fares will be lesser than them," said an official from High Speed Rail Corporation.
* LTT-PUNE aerial distance is just 120kms and 320kmph bullet train route should be about 130kms and bullet train should take about 40-45 minutes, 75 minutes is too much time.
* Delhi-Panipai-Ambala-Ludhiana-Jalandhar-Amritsar route appears to be most promising route for 2nd HST project.
* Due to very high construction costs and uncertainity of fare structure and patronage, it would be better to have first HST project commissioned and based on the experience further HST corridors should be taken up.
