NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor is complete and has successfully crossed the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC) in Meerut at an elevation of around 22 meters. In the Mohiuddinpur of Meerut, portions of viaduct spans have been erected to cross the EDFC.
EDFC is crossing Delhi-Meerut Road after passing the border of Modi Nagar just before Meerut South station of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor. Indian Railways will use this line for its goods trains. The EDFC is at the top, followed by the RRTS corridor, and the Delhi-Meerut Road is at the bottom.
On the entire 82 km long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS route, this will be the only location where Indian Railways and RRTS trains will cross a busy road simultaneously. The pillars of the RRTS have also been raised in height to cross the EDFC. In addition, two pillars were built on either side of the EDFC to form the segments of the viaduct span. The separation between these two pillars is 34 meters.
With the assistance of the traffic division, this procedure was accomplished on the road between Delhi and Meerut. As a result, vehicle traffic in this area continued to flow generally at this time.
After crossing the EDFC, Tarini will now build a viaduct that will go to Meerut South station. Tarini has begun constructing viaducts from the Modi Nagar side. The constructing of the viaduct heading into Meerut has advanced to the following phase with the installation of this span.
Meerut South Station will be unique for the locals since the metro train would serve the residents of Meerut from here. Partapur, Rithani, Shatabdi Nagar, Brahmapuri, Meerut Central, Bhainsali, Begumpul, MES Colony, Daurli Meerut North Modipuram, and Modipuram Depot stations will follow Meerut South station in the Meerut Metro.

The goal is to operate RRTS trains in the 17 km long priority segment in March of this year. The priority section is being prepared quickly to meet this objective. Teams from the NCRTC are working on this construction project day and night.
