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

If no issues arise during financial bid evaluation, then all four firms / consortia should receive a Letter of Award (LoA) in the coming weeks.

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.
