National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has started pre- construction activity with Geotechnical investigation, on the Delhi-Gurugram-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror Urban Complex) RRTS corridor.
The Geotechnical investigation is being performed by geotechnical engineers to obtain information on the physical properties of the soil and foundations for proposed structures.
- The NCRTC Board on 6th December 2018, approved the DPR (Detailed Project Report) of Delhi-Gurugram-SNB RRTS corridor.
- 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.
- 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.
- Officials 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.”
- RRTS trains, with design speed of 180 kmph, operation speed of 160 kmph and average speed of 100 kmph will be available at a frequency of every 5-10 minutes, according to the plan.
- 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.
