Vande Bharat Express Nagpur and Hyderabad
Indian Railways is all set to launch the sixth Vande Bharat Express, there are chances that Vanda Bharat Express between Nagpur to Hyderabad will be introduced in the near future. This is because Maharashtra Cabinet minister Sudhir Mungantiwar has written a letter to Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw demanding the Vande Bharat Express train be started from Nagpur to Hyderabad.
The four districts of Nagpur, Gondia, Bhandara and Chandrapur from Maharashtra’s Vidarbha region have good trade business with Hyderabad in Telangana, Mungantiwar said in the letter, as per a release issued by the Chandrapur district information office on Wednesday.
Although there are currently 22 trains running on the Nagpur-Hyderabad route, there must be a fast train to cover this distance of 575 km, stated Mungantiwar, who is also the guardian minister of Gondia and Chandrapur districts, he said.
Vande Bharat Express Train Speed
The Vande Bharat Express can run up to a maximum commercial speed of 160 kmph. Currently, the train on Secunderabad-Vijayawada track via Kazipet can run at a maximum speed of 130 kmph.
