NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): In a big step towards hassle-free commute in the Delhi NCR region, the NCRTC has begun the civil construction for the high-speed rapid rail project in Delhi.
The NCRTC on Monday started construction of a viaduct connecting the Sarai Kale Khan and New Ashok Nagar stations as part of the Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System.
The whole construction package for the corridor includes building a viaduct from Sarai Kale Khan to New Ashok Nagar’s Down-Ramp, a bridge over the Yamuna River, an entry ramp leading to the Jangpura Stabling Yard and two elevated stations at Sarai Kale Khan and New Ashok Nagar.
The 4.3 km section will be elevated. The two stations will be developed as a milestone hub with a major transit interchanging facility with all modes of transport.
“Currently, people have to exit the metro station and walk for 10 minutes to reach the railway station and bus terminal. Under the NCRTC planned station, people need not exit the station as direct connectivity will be provided to railway, metro, ISBT,” a senior NCRTC official was stated saying.
