For safety purpose, a fencing wall of 1.5m height will also be built on both sides of this semi-high speed railway track. It is believed that it will help the train to operate at the proposed speed without any hurdles.

It generally takes around 10 to 11 hours for passengers to commute between Hyderabad and Bengaluru by train with the current infrastructure. However, with the new semi high speed train, they can travel in just 150 minutes.
