French experts to upgrade Delhi-Chandigarh rail route to 200 kmph

Aiming at reducing the journey time between New Delhi and Chandigarh, Railways have undertaken a pilot project jointly with French experts to run a train at 200 kmph. A core team comprising 30 experts from France and India has been constituted to conduct a study and submit a report to the public transporter by December this year. The pilot project will also provide recommendations for upgrading nine high-priority passenger lines to provide semi-high-speed service over a total of 6,400 km rail network.
