Shaping India’s First Underground Bullet Train Station
Bandra Kurla Underground Railway Station

The Bandra-Kurla Underground Railway Station is a key component of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor Project. This ambitious initiative seeks to connect two major cities through a state-of-the-art high speed rail network. A crucial part of this prestigious National High-Speed Railway Project has been entrusted to MEIL and HCC with a pivotal role—the construction of the Underground Railway Station at Bandra-Kurla Complex. Once completed, this underground station becomes India's first underground bullet train station.

Fusion of Technology and Innovation

The Bandra-Kurla project is poised to reach new heights by incorporating Shinkansen technology into its design. This move underlines India's commitment to adopting the best practices in high-speed rail travel. With a top speed of 443 KMPH, the Bullet Train's influence will undoubtedly elevate the Bandra-Kurla Underground Railway Station to a new level of excellence.

Building Tomorrow's Railways

The reduced level of 24 meters from the ground poses engineering challenges that MEIL and HCC are adeptly tackling to ensure the project's success. The Bandra-Kurla Underground Railway Station is not just about functionality; it's a multi-faceted complex that seamlessly integrates commercial spaces. With six floors, six platforms, and a platform length of 467 meters, the station can efficiently accommodate six-coach Bullet Trains—a total length of 465 meters.

The scope of the project extends beyond the railway station's physical structure. We are diligently engaged in providing features like flood protection, ventilation, plumbing arrangements, and environmental control systems for construction. As the Bandra-Kurla Complex Underground Railway Station progresses, it symbolizes India's stride toward a future where cutting-edge rail technology converges with architectural finesse.
