The speed will be such that you can see
The total length of the corridor will be 760 km. It will have above-ground (elevated), inside (underground) and above-ground railway tracks. However, the rail track between Ara and Buxar will be elevated and 20 feet above the ground. Talking about the speed, the bullet train in Bihar will run at a speed of 350 km per hour.
