China to help develop India’s high speed rail corridor


China will work with India to build one of the proposed high-speed train corridors. Indian Railways will identify the project to be developed with Chinese cooperation.

The China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group and other Chinese enterprises will conduct the feasibility study for one high-speed corridor and prepare a project report with its financing. China will also assist Indian Railways with its semi-high speed plans. It will help strengthen tracks to increase maximum speed of passenger trains to 160 kmph from 130 kmph.

To begin with, Chinese engineers will help commission the Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore corridor and help augment train for 160 kmph. After the recent successful trial on running a semi-high speed train from Delhi to Agra, Indian Railways has identified eight other corridors to run similar semi-high speed trains.
