The National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) on 8th September 2020 issued the first tender notice for preparatory survey work to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the proposed 741 km Mumbai–Nagpur High Speed Rail project in Maharashtra, India.
Scope of work
The survey, Identification of Overhead, Over Ground, Underground Utilities And Identification Of Power Sourcing Options for substations along the Proposed Mumbai-Nasik-Nagpur High Speed Rail Corridor.
Pre-bid Meeting and Contact Point
A pre-bid meeting is scheduled on 16.09.2020 at 11.00 hrs through video conferencing. Interested bidders may contact Executive Director/Electrical, National High Speed Rail Corporation Ltd., 2nd Floor, Asia Bhawan, Road No. 205, Sector-9, Dwarka, New Delhi-110077 for further details.
The proposed 741 km long Mumbai-Nashik-Nagpur High Speed Rail Corridor will connect twin cities of Maharashtra through 12 new stations that are tentatively planned to be built at Shahapur, Igatputi, Nasik, Shirdi, Aurangabad, Jalna, Mehkar, Malegaon Jahangir, Karanja Lad, Pulgaon, Wardha and Nagpur.
However, questions raised the feasibility of this project as officials from Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) are saying that the Mumbai-Nashik-Nagpur High Speed Rail corridor is not feasible on the proposed routes.
AB Salunke, Superintendent Engineer, MSRTC said:
A patch of 112-km long Super Expressway is passing through the Aurangabad District. There are diversions (turns) at many spots on the road, apart from a 260-meter deep tunnel. Hence, the route is not feasible for running a superfast bullet train. This is the reason why the parallel project has been shelved.
The ambitious 701-km long Samruddhi Mahamarg Expressway will connect Mumbai to Nagpur through 10 districts of Maharashtra.
