A New HST Project in India – Delhi-Chennai Train HST

A New HST Project in India – Delhi-Chennai Train HST :An Indian Railways team is in China to chalk out plans for a 1,754 km.-long Delhi-Chennai high-speed train corridor.

The high-level team of officials from Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, led by Satish Agnihotri, arrived here Monday and is in talks with China’s High Speed Rail Corp. to build the Delhi-Chennai corridor. The communist giant has offered to conduct a feasibility study free of cost, officials here told PTI.

The proposed corridor, if built, could be the second largest in the world after China’s 2,298 km.-long Beijing-Guangzhou line, which was launched last year. Running at a speed of 300 km. per hour, it covers the distance in about eight hours.

The Delhi-Chennai high speed line could cost about $32.6 billion, state-run China Daily quoted Chinese officials as saying.

India is currently considering two corridors for high-speed trains. While Japan is conducting a feasibility study for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor, China will do the same for the Delhi-Chennai route.

Under the agreement, China has agreed to provide training in heavy haul for 100 Indian Railways officials, redevelopment of existing railway stations, and establishment of a railway university in India.

The two nations have also agreed to cooperate to identify the technical inputs required to increase speed on the existing railway line from Chennai to Mysore via Bangalore.

The Delhi-Chennai route is part of the proposed Diamond Quadrilateral project, which aims to build a high-speed train network between different cities, including Delhi-Mumbai, Mumbai-Chennai, Chennai-Kolkata, Kolkata-Delhi and Mumbai-Kolkata.

Currently, Rajdhani Express trains cover the distance between the two cities in 28 hours. The new train will cut that time to a mere six hours.
