I think among the busiest domestic air routes, Mumbai – Hyderabad stands to lose the most to high speed rail.
Which makes sense to construct the hsr line, there would be enough passengers.. also, this mode is more eco friendly, nearly equally fast (if traveling to airport and check in time is included), more comfortable, and we may potentially save 1000s of crores of importing airplanes and fuel..
This line goes through Gulbarga/Kalaburagi (written as Kala Buragai in the article), while the line drawn looks like it’s by-passing the city. Just FYI.
Thanks TMRG for all that you do. Appreciate it.
