Indicative alignment of Delhi – Ahmedabad High Speed Rail line – view information & route map

Last week, a total of 13 firms had submitted 14 bids for carrying out a Ridership (Traffic) Study and preparing General Arrangement Drawings for this high speed rail line.

As shared earlier – the line’s alignment has been proposed to pass through Jaipur and Udaipur, and the GAD contract’s tender document had revealed a total of 12 stations and 12 maintenance depots will be built. Their names still haven’t been revealed though, but I believe they’d come up at or around Himatnagar, Udaipur, Bhilwara – Chittorgarh, Ajmer – Kishangarh, Jaipur, Neemrana, Rewari, Manesar – Gurgaon, with possibly two stations in Delhi.
