Major land issue solved for Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project

The ambitious Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project has cleared a major hurdle, as Maharashtra government has agreed to give land at the Bandra-Kurla complex (BKC).

According to a PTI report, the proposed bullet train will start underground from BKC and travel 21 km in a tunnel passing through the sea before emerging overground at Thane.

The MRDA had wanted to use the BKC land for the proposed International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) at BKC.

The state urban development department had also asked the railways to explore alternatives near Bandra Terminus and Kurla.

However, the railways had rejected the suggestion and managed to convince the MMRDA that India’s first high speed rail project should be constructed at an underground terminus at BKC, the report quoted a top official as saying.
