http://www.unesco.org/new/en/unesco/worldwide/asia-and-the-pacific/  


Can there be possible Rail travel routes by building Tunnels, Bridges etc from India to other asian countries ?.  

Can we extend Indian Railways travel connectivity to other Asia pacific region countries ?.   Examples : India - Japan, India - China, India - Australia, India - Philippines, India - Singapore, India - Thailand etc ?.   


Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Thank you for your query. I believe this is a question for an engineer.  I do not see how to get a train to Japan, Australia, Singapore or the Philippines, since they are all islands. I would think that the cost of building underwater tunnels would be extremely high and not economically feasible.  I am sorry but I cannot give you an answer.
