Gujarat’s First Vande Metro Will Connect Ahmedabad To Dholera

12th June 2024  Source by https://www.ahmedabadmirror.com/

The Metro Rail Corporation plans to start a service between Ahmedabad and Dholera, marking the introduction of the first Vande Metro train in Gujarat. A feasibility study for the project is currently underway.

Dholera is rapidly developing into a major industrial hub, with over 100 small and large companies establishing their plants. Notably, Tata has announced a semiconductor chip plant in the region, and the US company Micron is also setting up its facility in Dholera.

Boosting connectivity

To enhance connectivity to Dholera, the Centre is planning to run a metro train. Vande Metro service provides metro connectivity up to 100 km. Dholera is within the radius, and metro connectivity will boost the area’s development,” a senior government official told Mirror.

The first Vande Metro in the country is expected to be rolled out next month, with trials commencing soon. This metro is a shorter-distance version of the Vande Bharat and is tailored for urban commuting up to 250 km. The inaugural run of the first Vande Metro in the country is likely to be between Chennai and Tirupati.

Fast and efficient travel

The Vande Metro will have higher speeds with fewer stations. “There will likely be only four stations between Ahmedabad and Dholera to maintain the train’s speed. More stations mean less speed,” the official explained.

Infrastructure devpt

The proposal for the train has been sent to the Ministry of Railways and a feasibility report is being readied. The development of social and other infrastructure is crucial for Dholera’s growth. With many foreign companies coming in, employees will need improved connectivity and services.


The state government is developing infrastructure such as highways and airports, expected to be completed by next year. Schools, hospitals, hotels, and other basic facilities are also anticipated to emerge soon, the official added.
