The 435-km high-speed rail (bullet train) corridor between Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai will finally be a reality soon and the route will be among a network of high-speed bullet trains on seven new routes, sources confirmed.
The Indian Railways along with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will start the process to acquire additional land soon. As per different media reports, the NHAI will soon acquire land to lay tracks for high-speed trains along Greenfield expressways for integrated development of the rail transport network in the country.
During an Infra Sector Group meeting held recently, it was decided that the NHAI will take over land acquisition and a four-member committee was formed to look into the matter. The committee will work on the modalities for acquiring land and its cost estimation.
