The NCRTC (National Capital Region Transport Corporation) has approved the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of Delhi-Gurgaon-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror Urban Complex) RRTS corridor, an official said. The 106 kms corridor will be elevated for around 71 km consisting of 11 stations, while the remaining 35 km, having 5 stations, will be underground mostly in Delhi and Gurgaon, according to the NCRTC’s official.
- The DPR was approved at a Board meeting of the NCRTC, chaired by Housing and Urban Affairs Secretary Durga Shanker Mishra, on Thursday.
- The central government has planned 3 RRTS corridors – Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut, Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar and Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat to enable fast commute from cities around Delhi in the NCR.
- The Delhi-Gurgaon-SNB is a part of Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar of the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor, which is planned to be implemented in 3 stages.
- In the 1st stage, Delhi-Gurgaon-Rewari-SNB Urban Complex will be constructed.
- In the 2nd stage, it will be extended from SNB Urban Complex to Sotanala.
- In the 3rd stage SNB Urban Complex to Alwar will be constructed.
- Official said,”The Delhi-Alwar will converge with other RRTS corridors in Sarai Kale Khan and will be interoperable, facilitating commuters’ movement from one corridor to another without the hassle of changing trains.”
- As per the plan, RRTS trains, with design speed of 180kmph, operation speed of 160kmph and average speed of 100kmph will be available at a frequency of every 5-10 minutes.
- The infrastructure is being designed for up to 9 coaches trains which will be air-conditioned with transverse seating and overhead luggage space for commuter comfort.
- This RRTS smart line will pass through the urbanised and industrialised areas of Haryana and connect the Delhi airport with the RRTS network, increasing the overall productivity of NCR.
