  As part of efforts to translate into reality the ambitious vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to start bullet trains in India, the Railway Ministry has commissioned a study on a high speed railway line between New Delhi and Chennai, to be conducted by China's High Speed Rail company. Railway Board last week issued an order to conduct a feasibility study on a high speed Rail line between New Delhi and Chennai to the China Rail High speed (CRH). Assisting the CRH in its study will be Rail Vikas Nigam. Getting a feasible study on the route from the CRH is part of an agreement signed between India and china during the visit of Chinese Predident Xi Jinping, when the two countries had agreed to collaborate towards developing high speed train on single railway route. Sources said after construction of the high speed rail on this 2,182 km long route, the journey that is presently covered by Rajdhani Express in 28 hours will take just seven hours. Carrying out a feasibility study on the long route will take time of six months to one year. This will be the longest high speed railway, which is why this high speed Railway project will be the costliest High speed Railway project. While the cost of construction of a normal railway route is Rs five crore, the estimated expenditure on the high speed Railway will be Rs 120 crore to Rs 126 crore. MORE UNI AR PR 1016 NNNN
