KARNAL (Metro Rail News): Karnal which has evolved from a sparsely populated area to a dense one is rapidly changing in terms of population. The area may be a part of the NCR region in the coming years as Noida, Gurgaon and Faridabad are today. The Haryana government has proposed several new projects for the all-round development of Karnal.
The Chief Minister recently hinted at the extension of Delhi-Panipath corridor of RRTS till Karnal. The total length of the corridor will be 103 km with 17 stations, including Murthal depot station.
“If the Haryana government makes this decision, it may enhance seamless transport facilities throughout the entire area and Karnal may soon become a distance of 30-40 minutes from Delhi. The share of the Haryana government in the Delhi-Panipat RRTS corridor is around Rs 5,000 crore (16 per cent of the total cost)”, said an official related with the development.
“Karnal has good connectivity with the adjoining areas like Delhi and Chandigarh. The coming of RRTS project to the city may turn as a boon as another arm added in its infrastructural development which will benefit the region, giving a boost to rapid connectivity from other adjacent areas”, said an official. The move will help to enlarge the concept of National Capital Region and it will further help to ease up the connectivity.
