In the heart of the Milk City of India, Anand, a new marvel of modern engineering and design is taking shape – the Anand Bullet Train Station. Set against the backdrop of the bustling city known for its rich dairy heritage, this station promises to be more than just a transportation hub; it's a symbol of innovation and cultural integration.

"Drawing inspiration from the fluid nature, shape, and color of milk droplets, the façade and interior design of the Anand Bullet Train Station encapsulate the essence of the region's dairy culture" said an official adding that under-construction station will be developed as a hub through integration with all basic modes of transportation for better, faster and hassle-free connectivity to and from the station.

State-of-the-Art Facilities and Enhanced Connectivity At The High-Speed Rail Station

According to National High Speed Rail Corporation Ltd,  The station will have three floors (Ground, Concourse and Platform) having two side platforms and 4 tracks in between. It will be equipped with all modern and advanced facilities and amenities. There will be ticketing and waiting areas, a business-class lounge, a nursery, restrooms, information booths, retail centres etc. Moreover, skylight provisions will be present on the roof and exterior sides for natural lighting. 

"In addition to the existing connectivity of station through link road with NH-64, NHSRCL( National High Speed Rail Corporation Ltd) has acquired additional strip of land along the viaduct for connection station directly to NH-64 on one side and SH-150 on the other side.
