NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): An elevated route of 500 metres in length between the National Capital Region Transport Corporation’s (NCRTC) proposed transit hub at Jangpura and Ring Road bids invited, NCRTC spokesperson stated.

NCRTC is building an elevated route along the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor from Mahatma Gandhi Road (Ring Road) to the NCRTC Complex in Jangpura. According to a spokeswoman for NCRTC, this elevated route would provide connectivity to the Jangpura RRTS station.

Even though it is only a small elevated section, it will facilitate traffic flow for nearby communities like Nehru Nagar.

The station complex [Jangpura RRTS] will be connected to the Ring Road near Nehru Nagar by an elevated portion of roughly 500 metres that will be built on 24 pillars (along the internal road). The Ring Road doesn’t need to be closed during construction.

The elevated segment, which is expected to cost close to 150 crores, will be finished within 19 months after the date of commencement of work, official stated.

The elevated part will begin from the plot where the station is envisaged and link to the Ring Road on the carriageway leading to the Delhi-Noida-Direct Flyway just before the Ashram flyover begins, per the plan. “AIIMS bound vehicles can take a U-turn beneath the Ashram flyover for going on the elevated length, therefore it will not link to the other lane (towards AIIMS) on the Ring Road” stated representative.

The NCRTC would be building its stabling yard, an operation control centre to monitor and control the time-bound operation of trains on all three RRTS tracks, office spaces, and residential facilities on around 12 hectares of land at Jangpura. The NCRTC decided to develop Jangpura as a significant transit hub earlier this year and is currently working on the influence zone plan to allow for the development of the station area using a transit-oriented development strategy.

The elevated corridor has been recommended because the Jangpura site is encircled by railroad tracks and has a weak connection to the arterial road network, stated NCRTC official.

“The RRTS station should have a good parking facility. The region where the station is located already has a lot of traffic. Therefore, doing a site impact evaluation is crucial. According to the principles of transit-oriented development policy, the station should be built, S Velmurugan, chief scientist for traffic engineering and safety at the Central Road Research Institute (CSIR-CRRI), said.

NCRTC representatives stated, the influence zone area design for the station will take the site’s surrounding traffic into consideration.

On the Delhi-Meerut RRTS route, Jangpura, like Sarai Kale Khan and Anand Vihar, will grow into a significant transport hub. A 17-km segment between Sahibabad and Duhai will be ready by March 2023, while the entire 82-km RRTS corridor is anticipated to be operational by March 2025.
