The ambitious Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) is progressing at a rapid pace. National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) has awarded 100 per cent civil contracts for the construction of MAHSR alignment in Gujarat which constitutes 352 km out of 508 km of total MAHSR corridor.
NHSRCL has also awarded civil contracts for eight HSR stations at Sabarmati, Ahmedabad, Anand, Vadodara, Bharuch, Surat, Bilimora and Vapi, and two Rolling stock depots at Sabarmati and Surat.
Recently, NHSRCL has signed an agreement with M/s Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) for design and construction of about 8 Km of viaduct including an HSR station in Vadodara in the state of Gujarat for Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Corridor (MAHSR C-5 Package).
To ensure seamless integration with the railways, the Vadodara HSR station is planned above the existing platform No-7 of Vadodara station of Indian Railways. With this integration, the passengers will get the comfort of easy transfer between HSR and Indian Railways.
