    The Railways has already worked out a blueprint for a semi-high speed corridor linking Nagpur and Hyderabad.

    The rationale behind the move is the unavailability of direct flights between the two cities. Also, a flight with a stopover may take over four hours.

    The 584-km stretch between the cities is currently covered by trains at an average speed of 60km/hr and takes a minimum of nine hours.

    The new plan is looking at running semi-high speed trains at an average speed of 160-200km/hr and strengthening the existing tracks and fencing off the route to cover the distance in the stipulated time.

    While semi-high speed trains can run at a maximum speed of 200 km/hr, the high-speed trains can run at 250-350 km/hr.

    The report also highlights that the Delhi-Chandigarh corridor, also considered one of the busiest routes in north India, is nominated to be the first semi-high speed project being taken up by the Railways with help from France.

    This new technology will enable trains to run at a maximum speed of 200km/hr.
