After the bullet train, here’s another feather in Gujarat’s cap. In a huge impetus for the industry and people, Gujarat is coming up with a comprehensive ‘State Railway Plan’ that will chart an ambitious roadmap for 30 years of rail connectivity. The plan, first by any state in the country, will explore all possibilities for rail connections in Gujarat to provide cheaper and faster passenger and freight mobility as well as reduce pollution. The plan gains importance considering that a national railway plan has been in the works for many years, but is yet to come to fruition. Last month, through a process of open bidding, consulting firm Ernst & Young LLP was selected to prepare the blueprint for Rs 1.99 crore. To be completed by December, the study will map existing capabilities in the state in various modes of transportation and estimate future potential to evolve areas that need to be linked by rail connectivity.
