The pace of work for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project has accelerated thanks to the shift in Maharashtra’s administration, which was much-needed. On a fast-track basis, the long-pending land acquisition and environmental clearances difficulties are being resolved. In the previous ten days, extra land in Palghar totaled more than 1.2 hectares. The decision to move a Bharat Petroleum Corp. gas station from a plot in the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) has also been reached by consensus because the location has been designated for the development of a high-speed train terminus. MMRDA will soon publish directives regarding this. It will have a three-story underground construction with six platforms on the lowest level.
The high-speed rail project, which was initiated in September 2017 at an estimated cost of 1.1 lakh crore, is expected to require land for 508 route km. However, with the most recent developments, 90.56 percent of the necessary land has already been secured for the entire project. These percentages are as follows: 98.8% in Gujarat; 100% in Dadar Nagar Haveli; and 72.25 in Maharashtra. Gujarat needs 384 km of land, Maharashtra needs 155 km, and Dadar Nagar Haveli needs 5 km.
The transfer of land for the BKC underground station (4.84 Ha) and 3.92 hectares at Vikroli for a tunnel shaft is a problem that the new Maharashtra administration has promised will be resolved quickly. The Maharashtra government has given stage-I clearance for the bullet train project alignment crossing through the forest area, and stage-II approval is soon to follow.
