India’s beloved Vande Bharat train is set to reach new speeds and enhance travel efficiency on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route. Initially promised to have a top speed of 160 km/h during its launch, the train has only been able to achieve 130 km/h on existing tracks.

However, starting from August 15, the Vande Bharat train will run at 160 km/h on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route, according to a report from TOI.

Mumbai-Ahmedabad Route Speed Upgrade 🚄💨

The Railway Board has directed the Mumbai and Vadodara divisions to complete the necessary work and run the confirmatory oscillograph car by June 30.

This project aims to increase train speeds on busy routes, cutting travel time and enhancing passenger experience. The current journey of 491 km between Mumbai and Ahmedabad takes 5 hours and 15 minutes. With the speed upgrade, this time will be reduced by up to 30 minutes.
