Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project in full swing: Railway Minister

Mumbai, Feb 23 (UNI) Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said on Friday that the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project is now in full swing in both Maharashtra and Gujarat.
During inspection of the proposed bullet train station at Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai, he claimed that the project could have advanced further if the previous Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra had expedited permissions.
He said that the high-speed railway corridor is poised to bring about substantial economic growth.
He further said that the Surat-Bilimora section, covering 508 km of the Mumbai and Ahmedabad corridor, might become operational by July-August 2026.
Subsequent sections will follow suit in a phased manner, the Minister added.
