GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CMRS) completed the two-day inspection of the Duhai-Modinagar stretch of the RRTS corridor yesterday. 

The Inspection 

The CMRS team conducted a statutory inspection on Monday, evaluating the line’s viaduct and standard gauge tracks, which were installed by Larsen & Toubro. On Tuesday, the team assessed passenger amenities, safety measures, and control room facilities across all three stations.

Trial Runs 

NCRTC conducted the trial run of the Namo Bharat trains on the 12.1 km stretch between Modinagar South & Meerut South on the 82 km Delhi-Meerut RRTS Corridor at the end of December last year. 

Covering stations 

On Thursday, the NCRTC announced that work on the Meerut (south) station is still pending, potentially delaying its inclusion in the upcoming section slated for opening. The NCRTC plans to concentrate on a 17km stretch, excluding the Meerut (south) station.

Completion so far

When this segment is launched, a stretch of 34.1 km along the Delhi – Meerut RRTS line, extending from Sahibabad to Modinagar North, will commence operations. It will feature seven elevated stations along the main line and one at-grade at Duhai Depot.

Delhi-Meerut RRTS 

The Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) is a comprehensive mass rapid transit network spanning 82.15 kilometres, linking Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan with Ghaziabad and Meerut. The construction of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor is currently in progress, with a total expenditure of nearly Rs 30,000 crore. Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the initial phase of the priority corridor, covering 17 kilometres and featuring five stations: Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, and Duhai Depot.

On October 20th, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched India’s first RAPIDX train, Namo Bharat, off Sahibabad Station. These trains are engineered to reach a maximum speed of 180 km/h, offering ticket prices ranging from Rs 20 to Rs 50 for standard coaches and Rs 50 to Rs 100 for premium coaches.

The RRTS initiative encompasses semi-high-speed rail corridors connecting Delhi to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, Alwar in Rajasthan, and Panipat in Haryana.
