DPR Preparation Begins For Delhi-Varanasi HSR Corridor



Work has commenced on detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed Delhi-Varanasi high-speed rail (HSR) corridor following instructions of the Central government. 

The 865-km long Delhi-Varanasi high-speed rail corridor is one of the eight HSR passageways proposed. The project has been proposed to optimise high-speed rail connectivity between major cities and strengthen the industrial sector.  

Work has already begun on 508-km long Ahmedabad-Mumbai corridor that will see bullet trains running at a speed of 320 km per hour. 

Once the Delhi-Varanasi corridor project is completed it will reduce travel time between the two cities to around four-and-a-half hours. 

The National High Speed Rail Corporation (NHSRCL) has been entrusted by the Ministry of Railways to prepare DPRs for seven new high-speed rail corridors, namely Delhi-Varanasi, Varanasi-Howrah, Mumbai-Nagpur, Delhi-Ahmedabad, Chennai-Mysore, Delhi-Amritsar, and Mumbai-Hyderabad.
