Menu: News & Construction Updates | Overview

Ahmedabad – Rajkot Semi High-Speed Rail Project is a 227.60 km proposed semi high-speed rail line connecting Ahmedabad and Rajkot in Gujarat through 6 stations with an estimated cost of Rs. 28,291.44 crore.

Trains on the line will operate with a top speed of 160 kmph and cover the distance between Ahmedabad and Rajkot in two hours, reducing travel times from the 4.5 hours it takes via National Highway NH-34.

The line will connect to the 508 km Mumbai – Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Line at Sabarmati and act as a feeder, effectively reducing the travel time between Rajkot and Mumbai from 12 hours to less than 5 hours.

The project received an in-principle approval from the Gujarat government in November 2019, and will be executed by the Gujarat Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation (G-RIDE), a joint venture of the Ministry of Railways and Govt. of Gujarat incorporated on January 6, 2017.
