Produced at Plasser India, three SVM 1000 I track laying trains are working on the largest infrastructure project in India. The impressive construction projects include a dedicated freight corridor with a total length of around 3,300 km.

As there is a lack of capacity for the transport of raw materials and industrial products, India has been investing heavily in the expansion of the rail network for many years. “Dedicated Freight Corridors” are created which, as the name says, are dedicated specifically to freight transport. 

Currently, the East and West freight corridors are being built. Both lines cover a total length of about 3,300 km. The Eastern freight corridor runs from Ludhiana in Punjab to Dankuni in West Bengal, the Western one from the Jawaharlal Nehru port in Mumbai (Maharashtra) to Dadri in Uttar Pradesh.
