Very soon there will be an underwater train-line from Mumbai to UAE. Yes, you heard me right, According to a Dubai-based Khaleej media report, UAE-based Company National Advisor Bureau plans to build a submerged rail network between Fujairah and Mumbai in the near future to provide high-speed rail travel between the two countries.
"This is a concept. We plan to connect Indian city of Mumbai with Fujairah through ultra-speed floating trains. The project aims to boost bilateral trade. There will be export of oil to India from Fujairah port and import of excess water from Narmada River, north of Mumbai. In addition, other GCC partners can also improve export and import," Khaleej Times quoted National Advisor Bureau MD and chief consultant Abdulla Alshehhi as saying.
Inspired by Eurostar, the submarine high-speed train between London and Paris, India is likely to have its own train between UAE’s Fujairah and Mumbai. To advance the connectivity amid the two nations, National Advisor Bureau is planning to undertake the project.
The length of the railway line will be more than 2,000 km. Apart from transiting passengers, the line will be used to export oil and exchange goods as well.
Well, if the news turns out to be real, it will benefit both the nations to build a healthy relationship.
