Soon, you may enjoy underwater high-speed rail travel between Mumbai & UAE
Like London to Paris undersea high-speed rail travel, Indians may also soon enjoy underwater 'floating rail' travel between UAE's Fujairah town and Mumbai.
According to a Dubai-based Khaleej Times report, UAE-based company National Advisor Bureau plans to build an underwater 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 qued National Advisor Bureau MD and chief consultant Abdulla Alshehhi as saying.
According to the report, the total rail network will be around 2,000 km. Apart from passenger transit, Alshehhi said there are plans to facilitate the exchange of goods from India to UAE and export of oil through a pipeline as well.
Floating trains or 'Maglev' use magnet repulsion sy em to move the 'train' at a great speed taking advantage of the lack of friction. The high-speed Maglevs trains are currently under operations in and Japan, but several countries like Australia, US, Israel and UK have plans to introduce the rail sy em.

Absolutely! It is harm to natural resources and waste of time and public money. Instead Gt. to plan to purify Sea water and use it for growing consumption of water.

in future mumbai itself will be grappling with water shortage given the pace with the construction is going on without any increase in the capacity of the water reservoir and the authorities lacking planning vision.
