Railway minister Piyush Goyal has said land acquisition for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train corridor would be completed by December this year. The minister was speaking at The Economist India Summit 2018 in Mumbai yesterday. Mr Goyal said that despite a slight delay in land acquisition, the project may be completed before deadline due to developments in the engineering sector. 


The minister informed that work related to designing and assembling machines to build a 27 km under-sea tunnel as part of the project is progressing. Mr Goyal also said, there are five more corridors being planned for high-speed trains. 


Agra-Varanasi, Delhi-Chandigarh and Mumbai-Bengaluru are being worked on. 


Talking about future plans, he said that there are some coal transporting routes which would be completed on priority while some are nearing completion.
