GREATER NOIDA (Metro Rail News): Residents of Noida and Greater Noida will have direct access to the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut rapid rail corridor with the help of the Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, and Guldar stations. This RRTS project, worth ₹30,274 crores and involves trains with a design speed of 180kmph, includes 17 routes serviced by 114 buses that will pass through Gaur Chowk, Sectors 62 and 62, 51 and 52. This move aims to ensure seamless exiting from the rapid rail stations.

These buses, which will be of Euro 6 classification and run on CNG, will have a capacity of 20 passengers each. Applications will initially be accepted for three routes, which will involve travelling on public and private roads. 

Here are the routes: Sahibabad to Loni, Shalimar Garden, Sahibabad railway station; Hindon Airport, Shalimar Garden, Sahibabad Railway Station; Loni, Mohan Nagar; Hindon Airport, Mohan Nagar; Noida Sector 62, CISF, Indirapuram, Vasundhara; Noida Sector 62, Aditya Mall, Indirapuram, Vasudhara; UP Gate, Dabur Chowk, Vaishali, Sahibabad; UP Gate, Abhay Khan, Gyan Khand, Atal Chowk, Vasundhara; Kaushambi, bus station, Sahibabad Industrial area.

Special licences will be granted for these roads, and the entire corridor is expected to be operational by 2025. The route will consist of 24 stations, including Sarai Kale Khan, New Ashok Nagar, Anand Vihar, Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, Muradnagar, Modinagar South, Modinagar North, Meerut South, Shatabdi Nagar, Begumpul and Modipuram.

It is expected that the RRTS, which will have 25 stops along its 82-kilometre route, with 22 of them being in Uttar Pradesh, will be able to reduce the current three to four-hour road travel time between Delhi and Meerut to around 55 minutes when it is up and running.

 The project is estimated to serve roughly 800,000 passengers per day and is planned to start operations for commuters by March 2025, with the 17 km priority stretch in Ghaziabad beginning operations by March 2023 and having five stations at Sahibabad, Ghaziabad City, Guldhar, Duhai and Duhai Depot.
