West Bengal is soon going to get another new route called Bande Bharat Express. According to sources, the Vande Bharat, which is going to be launched, will run on the Varanasi route from Howrah.
According to sources, Railways has plans to start more routes from Howrah to Vande Bharat.
For the past few years, the railway authorities have been working on infrastructure development to increase the speed of trains to 160 km per hour on the Howrah-New Delhi route. When the work is completed, the Vande Bharat Express will be able to run between Varanasi and Howrah at a maximum speed of 150 km per hour or more, according to railway sources.
At present one Bande Bharat Express runs in West Bengal. That train runs between Howrah to New Jalpaiguri.
Departs Howrah at 5:55 a.m. six days a week (except Wednesday). Reach New Jalpaiguri at 1:25 PM. On the way back, Vande Bharat Express departs from New Jalpaiguri at 3:05 PM. Which reaches Howrah at 10:35 PM. It takes seven hours and 30 minutes.
However, it is known that it will take less time to reach the destination on the Howrah to Varanasi route. It is known that India will need only 6 hours to cover the 750 km distance between Howrah and Varanasi.
Incidentally, Bande Bharat on the Howrah-New Jalpaiguri route was launched in Bengal amid questions about infrastructure. However, it is known that there will be sufficient infrastructure if Bande Bharat is launched on the Howrah-Varanasi route.
This route will run from Varanasi to Mughalsrai, Dhanbad to Howrah in India. Meanwhile, Railways hopes that the time can be further reduced after the renovation of the rail track between Howrah-New Jalpaiguri.
