Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia stated at a press conference on Friday that the first phase of the Bullet Train project will be operational in three years and that the Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram International Airport in Ayodhya will conclude construction by the end of this month. The first bullet train terminal in India was constructed at the Sabarmati Multimodal Transport Hub in Ahmedabad, and Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw had previously shared an amazing video of the structure on Thursday.
“The first section of the Bullet Train will start within three years,” said Scindia.
The Aviation Minister also committed that the Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram International Airport in Ayodhya would be ready by the end of December, in time to welcome visitors for the consecration of the Holy Temple in January.
“I recently inspected the Ayodhya airport project along with UP CM Yogi Adityanath. By the end of this month, the Ayodhya airport will be fully ready. I am monitoring the project on a daily basis. PM Modi will inaugurate the airport along with flight operations,” he added.
Notably, work is underway to build the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, which PM Modi is expected to dedicate on January 22. He went on to discuss the government and Vande Bharat trains, saying, “As of right now, 23 of these trains are operating throughout the nation. By 2047, we want to operate 4,500 Vande Bharat trains. In the upcoming years, the Indian government will also be working to guarantee that train carbon emissions are reduced to net zero.”
