SC panel permits construction of Delhi-Alwar RRTS project

01 Sep 2021

A Supreme Court-appointed panel has approved construction of the proposed Delhi-Alwar high-speed rail corridor to be built under the Aravalli Biodiversity Park and the extended ridge area, claiming that the project will not be environmentally harmful. A 3.6-km stretch of the corridor is supposed to pass below the extended or morphological ridge in South Delhi, according to the Central Empowered Committee's (CEC) report, which was finalised recently. Without permission from the Ridge Management Board (RRB) and the SC via the CEC, agencies are not permitted to conduct constrictions in the ridge and extended ridge areas.
