PM Modi Flags Off Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express

Secunderabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday flagged off Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express from Secunderabad Railway Station. This train will reduce the travel time between the two cities by almost three-and-a-half hours.

This is the first Vande Bharat Express of India connecting the holy city of Tirupati. It is India’s 13th Vande Bharat Express. This is the second Vande Bharat train to start from Telangana within three months.

In January, PM Modi had flagged off India’s eighth Vande Bharat Express between Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam. Vande Bharat Express takes 52 seconds to touch a speed of 100 kmph. It is equipped with CCTV cameras, power backup, GPS-based information systems and vacuum toilets.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone for the redevelopment of Secunderabad Railway Station.

The Secunderabad to Tirupati Vande Bharat will depart at 6 am and reach Tirupati at 2:30 pm.

Vande Bharat Train is an indigenously manufactured, semi-high speed and self-propelled train set.
