If you travel between Patna, the capital of Bihar to Delhi regularly, you know how exhausting the commute is. Currently, travelling between these two major cities can take anywhere from 17 hours by train to nearly 9 hours with the faster Vande Bharat Express. But now, a high-speed bullet train, designed to zip along at 350 kmph, promises to slash travel time by a whopping two-thirds!
According to reports, after planning the ongoing Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train initiative, the government is now planning a bullet train on the Delhi-Patna route, which stretches over 1,050 km. The route is expected to include stations in Buxar, Patna itself, and Gaya. Additionally, the route for construction of elevated track in Bihar for the bullet train has been decided, and reports say that land acquisition for the same will start soon as a team of National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited is going to reach Patna in August.
The benefits of a bullet train network are manifold. Passengers travelling for business or leisure will experience a revolution in travel time. The economic impact is also significant, boosting tourism and business opportunities between the two cities.
