Indian bullet train to travel under the sea

The new Indian bullet train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad will travel under the sea, it has been revealed.

The Economic Times reports that the 508km line will include a 21km-long under-sea tunnel section near Thane Creek in Maharashtra. The majority of the track however, will be elevated above the ground. Estimated to cost about INR976 billion (US$14.8bn), the project is largely being funded by Japan, which has agreed a “soft-loan” with India.

Construction work is expected to begin by the end of 2018 and the line is due to be completed by 2024-25. There will be 11 stations along the route, including Thane, Surat and Vadodara.

The new high-speed train is expected to cover the Mumbai-Ahmedabad journey in just over two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350kph.
