The work encompasses a diverse range of structures, including viaducts, bridges, and earth structures, totaling 135.45 km in length. "With 36 bridges and crossings, including crucial river crossings over Ulhas, Vaitarna, and Jagani rivers, the project underscores its comprehensive approach to connectivity" official added.

In addition to enhancing connectivity between Mumbai Ahmedabad, the project envisages the establishment of three bullet train stations at Thane, Virar, and Boisar, further bolstering regional accessibility. Furthermore, a groundbreaking feat is underway with the construction of India's first undersea tunnel, spanning 21 km between underground stations at Bandra-Kurla Complex and Shilphata. Utilizing advanced technologies, including three boring machines and the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), this endeavor epitomizes the project's pioneering spirit.

"The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor embodies India's vision for modern, sustainable infrastructure. As work gains momentum in Maharashtra, the project signifies not only enhanced connectivity but also a testament to the nation's engineering prowess and commitment to progress.
