Feasibility Study High Speed Rail in India
India is a country with a very dynamic development and on its way to develop a nationwide High Speed Rail (HSR) network. Several nationwide or corridor-specific studies have been undertaken. The task for this project was to determine whether the framework and socio-economic structures in India are suitable for the implementation of an HSR system, and whether the German HSR framework and approach are comparable with India and can thus be used as a blueprint. Subsequently the study was to prove whether the rail corridor Chennai – Bengaluru – Mysuru qualifies for such a project and which routing and characteristics would be the optimal solution.
