NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) is set to connect the Ghaziabad RRTS station with the Shahhd Stahl Metro station of the Red Line. 

The Foot over Bridge 

A foot-over bridge is expected to be built between the two. The foot-over bridge spans a length of 300 meters to integrate the two seamlessly. The location features hefty traffic congestion in the scheme of things. 

Development Plans 

Development plans are underway for the RRTS stations at Meerut. Similar and non-similar development plans exist for Anand Vihar and Sarai Kale Khan metro stations. 

Deadline 

The Project is expected to be completed within a deadline of 3 months. This would enhance the seamless integration of the two transit systems across the length, ensuring an integrated, much-needed model for the NCR

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.
