The National High-Speed Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) is reportedly getting ready to float more than 20 tenders for the bullet train project by January 2019.
The tenders amounting to Rs 88,000 crore will be for coaches, infrastructure, signalling, technology, among others, a PTI report said, quoting sources in the railway ministry.
The report said that despite local resistance against land acquisition for the project, NHSRCL floated its first tender for the bullet train in July for building a bridge in the Navsari district of Gujarat.
“It will be the first of the 60-odd bridges on the 508-kilometre high-speed corridor,” added the PTI report.
