GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): The 17 km-long priority section of Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor which has a total of five stations that are Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Vasundhara, Guldhar, Duhai and Duhai depot is going to get its first set of trains by May, said officials. It will arrive from the Savli plant, Gujarat to Duhai depot.

“The launch of the last span of Package 1 (Sahibabad to Ghaziabad) on the 17 km-long priority section was completed on Tuesday. At present, the track laying work near the Duhai depot is also being carried out at pace. This depot is taking shape rapidly, where the first RRTS train set is expected to arrive from Savli, Gujarat next month,” said a senior NCRTC official.

The officials informed that the construction work here is being executed in two packages, first between Sahibabad to Ghaziabad and second between Ghaziabad and Duhai.

“The construction of the entire span in package 1 is now complete. The installation of signalling and telecom systems in both the packages will also speed up. The road ahead for the implementation of the Over Head Electrical (OHE) wires is now clear, and the track laying work is being carried out within its stipulated time frame,” said the official.

“The first train set will have six coaches, including one business coach and a car reserved for female passengers. Once the train set arrives, the trial runs will start. In the beginning, it will start step-by-step, but a proper trial run on the entire priority section will commence by the end of this year,” the official added.

The priority section between Sahibabad to Duhai depot will be operational for public use by March next year.
