President Obama’s Plan and Vice President Biden unveils
$53 Billion High Speed Rail 6 Year Plan –

Vice President Biden Announces Six Year Plan to Build National High-Speed Rail Network and it says that Plan Lays Out Vision for Long Term Infrastructure Investments Needed to Win the Future

To create more jobs in America President Obama has decided to start infrastructure spending which will help creation of Jobs in USA.

In beginning from American Budge President will allocate $ 8 Billion towards this cause.
For this also he will need the approval of congress.

This money will be spending on improving, developing trains that travel up to 250 miles per hour and existing rail tracks, lines will be connected to the new project that is new rail lines, tracks.

President Obama has dream that in next 25 years 80% American population should get and enjoy access to high speed rails.

Last Year Obama Administration allotted $10 billion in federal grants for high-speed rail

And last year also Obama laid out a plan of $50 billion spend on infrastructure but congress did not approve it.

In order to achieve a truly national system, these investments will focus on developing or improving three types of interconnected corridors:

1. Core Express: These corridors will form the backbone of the national high-speed rail system, with electrified trains traveling on dedicated tracks at speeds of 125-250 mph or higher.
2. Regional: Crucial regional corridors with train speeds of 90-125 mph will see increases in trips and reductions in travel times, laying the foundation for future high-speed service.
3. Emerging: Trains traveling at up to 90 mph will provide travelers in emerging rail corridors with access to the larger national high-speed and intercity passenger rail network.

This system will allow the Department – in partnership with states, freight rail, and private companies – to identify corridors for the construction of world-class high-speed rail, while raising speeds on existing rail lines and providing crucial planning and resources to communities who want to join the national high-speed rail network.

By clarifying the long-term federal role in passenger rail, this six-year program will provide states and cities with the certainty they need to make long-term transportation plans for their communities. It will provide businesses the confidence they need to hire American workers.

Great thinking and excellent plan by President Obama and his team.

While writing this article, just a thought came our leaders put the plan to build statue and idols when farmers are committing suicide as they do not have money to buy food, have no future for their kids.

And they say India is going to become super power with empty stomach.
