On February 11, while answering a question to Rajya Sabha, the Ministry of Railways announced its intention to undertake a survey and prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for seven corridors including the DVHSR.
According to government officials, there would be 13 stations, including 12 elevated in Uttar Pradesh and one underground in Delhi, on the 813 km track on which the train would travel at 330 km/h.
It will take a minimum of 3 hours 33 minutes to reach Varanasi from the nation’s capital with limited stops. A tunnel almost 15 km long would be built for the metro station.
Since the DVHSR’s route alignment is along the Yamuna and Agra-Lucknow highway and the proposed Ganga highway to avoid forest and wildlife, the train is likely to have its station at Lucknow on the way. at Avadh level. “A total of 43 trains per day will reach Avadh crossing station every 22 minutes,” an official said.
From Hazrat Nizamuddin, the train would stop at Noida Sector 146 Metro Station, Jewar Airport, Mathura, Agra, Etawah, Kannauj, Lucknow, Rae Bareli, Pratapgarh, Prayagraj, Bhadohi and se would end in Manduadih (Varanasi).
A Pedestrian Bridge (FOB) would connect Avadh Crossing Station to Singar Nagar Metro Station so that passengers can reach their destinations in the city.
Similarly, a FOB would be constructed from Prayagraj station to Phaphamau station.
According to the proposed plan, 18 trains would run daily 47 minutes from Varanasi.
In Delhi, DVHSR metro station would be opposite Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, while in Noida, it would be opposite Sector 146 metro station. In Jewar, DVHSR station would be part of the transport network of the Jewar Airport.
According to the authorities, another section of the DVHSR has been proposed to connect Lucknow and Ayodhya, but this would depend on the feasibility of the costs. Apart from the Delhi-Varanasi route, surveys would be conducted for Varanasi-Howrah, Delhi-Amritsar, Delhi-Ahmedabad, Mumbai-Hyderabad, Mumbai-Nagpur and Chennai-Mysore via Bangalore.
