His third and his fourth Vande Bharat Express from constituencies in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh have recently been launched by rail. Meanwhile, elections will be held in Karnataka next year. Note that Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the newest Vande Bharat Express train at Andaura railway station in Una district of Himachal Pradesh on Thursday.
The train will reduce travel time between Una, Chandigarh and New Delhi and will also have advanced safety features. Vande Bharat 2.0 trains are equipped with a Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) called KAVCH, which previous trains did not have. The coach is equipped with emergency lighting with a 3 hour battery reserve.
There are eight flatform side cameras on the outside of the train instead of four. Equipped with automatic voice recording, coaches also have communication devices for passengers and guards.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office was emphasized. It also boasts an “airplane-like travel experience” and cutting-edge safety features such as his KAVCH, a proprietary train collision avoidance system.
A third Vande Bharat train was launched in Gujarat by Prime Minister Modi earlier this month.
However, some Shinkansen-related incidents have also been reported. Last week, a semi-high speed train between New Delhi and Varanasi experienced a technical failure that delayed passengers – the third outage in days. The Bande Bharat Express train collided with three buffaloes and a cow the next day, both in Gujarat.
There are also reports that Indian Railways plans to launch a super-fast parcel service to attract higher value and time-sensitive goods.
Various means of transport are currently used to deliver special categories of cargo. Note that the Vande Bharat platform will be used to build these cargo EMUs. The Vande Bharat train was tested at speeds between 120 and 180 km/h. Using trains to transport freight can significantly reduce transport time.
