The National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd has invited bids for the preparation of a detailed project report for the 711-km-long Mumbai-Pune-Hyderabad high-speed rail corridor.
NHSRCL spokesperson Sushma Gaur said the agency has invited the first tender and a pre-bid meeting is scheduled on November 5, with the starting date for submissions of tender being November 11. The last date for submissions is November 17 and tenders are to be opened on November 18.
The development comes days after the NHSRCL invited detailed project reports for the 459-km-long Delhi-Amritsar-Chandigarh rail corridor, 865-km-long Delhi-Varanasi rail corridor, 753-km-long Mumbai-Nagpur corridor, the 886-km-long Delhi-Ahmedabad stretches as well as the 711-km-long Mumbai-Hyderabad bullet train corridor.
The NHSRCL is in the process of collecting data on these new proposed corridors for the preparation of the detailed project reports. It is currently constructing the 508-km Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project, popularly known as the Bullet Train Project.
The NHSRCL is yet to invite tenders for the 435-km-long Chennai-Mysore and 760-km-long Varanasi-Howrah high speed rail corridors.
