Nagpur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday inaugurated Phase I of the Nagpur Metro rail project and purchased a ticket to take a ride on the Metro from Freedom Park to Khapri.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone of Phase- II of the rail project, which will be developed at a cost of more than ₹ 6700 crore.

PM Modi also flagged off India’s sixth Vande Bharat Express between Bilaspur (Chattisgarh)-Nagpur (Maharashtra) route. PM Modi flagged off the train from Nagpur railway station and was accompanied by Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari.

The Vande Bharat Express can run up to a maximum speed of 160 kmph and has travel classes like Shatabdi Train but with better facilities. It aims to provide a totally new travel experience to passengers.

Vande Bharat Express is India’s first semi-highspeed train equipped with world-class passenger amenities. It can achieve high speeds due to faster acceleration and deceleration and will reduce journey time by 25 percent to 45 percent.

The Bilaspur- Nagpur Vande Bharat Express will be operated by the Southeast Central Railways (SECR).

It will have scheduled stops at Raipur, Durg and Gondia.

The Bilaspur-Nagpur Vande Bharat Express will operate six days a week.
