GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) had conducted the test run of the RRTS train set on its depot tracks at Duhai in Ghaziabad.

NCRTC is building India’s first Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS), a rail-based, high-speed regional passenger transit system from Delhi to Meerut via Ghaziabad.

The first RRTS train set from its manufacturing unit in Savli, Gujarat, had arrived at Duhai depot in June.

On Saturday 6th August night, the test run was carried out at the Duhai depot.

“RRTS trainset performed its first test run on its depot tracks, marking an important milestone toward bringing in India’s first regional rail for the NCRTC. The trainset was fueled by the NCRTC’s 25 kV Traction system, which had just been charged, the NCRTC stated in a tweet on Sunday.

According to the report, NCRTC MD Vinay Kumar Singh and senior management staff were riding in the train during the test run.

The NCRTC is gearing up to open Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor’s Priority Section to the public.

A newly commissioned LTE communication network was also successfully tested during this testing. Singh praised directors and heads of divisions for doing this, according to the tweets from the transportation agency.

The 82 km long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS line will comprise a 12 km underground portion and 70 km elevated section.

According to NCRTC officials, the trial runs of the RRTS train will first be conducted on the priority section between Sahibabad and Duhai and is likely to start by the end of this year.

The 17-km long priority section between Sahibabad and Duhai is targeted to be commissioned by 2023 and the full corridor by 2025, they said.

The priority segment between Sahibabad and Duhai will serve as the site for the first RRTS train trials, which are expected to begin by the end of this year and by 2023 the 17-km long priority portion between Sahibabad and Duhai should be operational, and by 2025, the entire corridor.
