India’s Debut Bullet Train Will Be The First In The World To Take You Under The Sea

Japan’s bullet trains have been a raging success ever since they were first introduced back in 1964. People take them across the country to and from work or home and get to their destination in just a fraction of time that it takes by regular rail. It was an innovative idea that took the world by storm, so it’s no wonder other countries have been begging for the plans and designs to make it happen in their own homelands. One of the latest countries to get the coveted train is India.

However, they’re not just building any old track for the bullet train, they’re making an underwater track for passengers to ride through. The 508 km ride will take place partly underwater with a 21km stretch going through an underwater tunnel. The project is already costing the country a ton of money, but luckily Japan is fronting 81 percent of the moolah. Too bad passengers will have to wait to 2018 to even see the project start its construction.
