NHAI to acquire land next to E-ways for bullet train

The National Highways Authority of India would acquire additional land for the laying of railway lines for high speed trains along the greenfield expressways for integrated development of transport networks. Following a recent meeting under Nitin Gadkari, both the road and railway ministries have set up a task force to work out the modalities for acquiring land and sharing the cost.

Meanwhile, the railway board has written a letter to NHAI giving details of seven High Speed Rail Corridors for running bullet trains. The identified seven high speed rail corridors are Delhi to Varanasi via Noida, Agra and Lucknow; Varanasi to Howrah via Patna; Delhi to Ahmedabad via Jaipur and Udaipur; Delhi to Amritsar via Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Jalandhar; Mumbai to Nagpur via Nasik; Mumbai to Hyderabad via Pune and Chennai to Mysore via Bangalore.
