Trial Runs start on Priority Corridor of Delhi Meerut RRTS Line

NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) formally began trial runs (train testing) on a 1.5 km section of the 82.15 km Priority Corridor of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS project on 23rd December.

The first of four prototype semi-high-speed Alstom trains the team has received so far was manually operated between Duhai Depot, Depot Station, and Duhai RRTS Station. The Duhai Depot received this train set in June 2022 and has been performing the test on the track.

The only goal of the initial run was to verify that there were no physical obstructions in the way by checking for Schedule of Dimensions (SOD) clearances and observing how the train interacted with the civil construction.

Most of the 1.5 km section of the train travelled on the depot line, which runs alongside the Eastern Peripheral Expressway.

This achievement was made within 30 months after the APCO-CRFG JV launched the first precast segment of Package 2’s 10.3 km in July 2020. They are responsible for building the viaduct for the route that connects Ghaziabad Station with the Duhai Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) crossing, which has two elevated stations at Guldhar and Duhai.

As part of Package 19, IRCON International installed and powered the line’s 25kV AC overhead equipment (OHE) system.

In the upcoming months, several subsystems, along with the train’s reaction to being operated at varying speeds and brakes, the track system, the OHE system, and the platform screen door system behaviour, will all be monitored.

NCRTC has set a March 2023 target (EPE) to finish and launch the project’s 18 km elevated Priority Corridor linking Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, and Duhai.
