High speed train on track, but there are no tracks

Nov 27, 2018 10:09 IST

India's high speed train project may be on track, but there are virtually no tracks for it to run on. Only 0.3% of India’s railway tracks spread over 60,000 km are fit to handle trains running at the speed of up to 160 km per hour, Hindustan Times reported quoting an assessment made in an internal railway document. The assessment has come to light as the Indian railways is currently conducting trials for introducing Train 18, which is India’s first self-powered, engineless train designed to run at 160 km per hour.
