NCRTC Plants 2.5 Lakh Trees Along RRTS Corridor

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has launched a groundbreaking initiative to enhance the ecological landscape along the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor stretching from Sahibabad in Ghaziabad to Shatabdi Nagar in Meerut. With a vision to foster a sustainable and green environment, NCRTC is spearheading the plantation of over 250,000 trees, setting a remarkable precedent for eco-conscious infrastructure development.

According to a recent NCRTC communique, the extensive plantation drive encompasses various strategic locations, including the corridor's median, stations, and depots. The initiative aims to not only beautify the landscape but also contribute significantly to environmental conservation, aligning with global sustainability objectives.

A substantial portion of the saplings, approximately half of the total, is being meticulously planted beneath the viaduct in the median spanning the 48-kilometer RRTS corridor from Sahibabad to Shatabdi Nagar, marking substantial progress with over 95 percent completion in Meerut. The remaining saplings have found their home in the RRTS Depot located in Duhai, Ghaziabad.

The selection of plant species reflects a thoughtful approach towards creating a visually captivating ambiance. Bougainvillea, tecoma, plumeria alba, allamanda, mansoa, jasmine, and madhumalati, renowned for their vibrant blooms, have been carefully chosen to adorn the corridor with natural splendor. These flora additions are poised to transform the RRTS corridor into a verdant oasis, enhancing its allure and aesthetic appeal.

The ongoing development along the RRTS corridor extends beyond green initiatives. The operationalization of the Namo Bharat train between Muradnagar and Modi Nagar North signifies tangible progress, with construction efforts advancing swiftly on stations further along the route. Additionally, preparations for the section from Shatabdi Nagar to Modipuram are well underway, with tree planting slated to commence upon completion.

NCRTC's commitment to sustainability transcends mere rhetoric, evident in its conscientious efforts to integrate eco-friendly practices into every construction phase. From the utilization of fly ash bricks to effective waste management and the implementation of energy-efficient designs, NCRTC is setting benchmarks for environmentally responsible infrastructure development.

The monumental achievement of meeting India's peak power demand underscores the nation's strides towards energy sufficiency. The substantial contribution of renewables, particularly solar and wind energy, highlights the pivotal role of sustainable energy sources in addressing growing energy needs while mitigating environmental impact.

The successful coordination among stakeholders in the power sector, coupled with strategic policy interventions, has been instrumental in ensuring uninterrupted power supply during peak demand periods. As the nation anticipates future energy challenges, proactive measures and collaborative efforts will remain paramount in sustaining India's energy resilience.

NCRTC's ambitious tree plantation initiative stands as a testament to the transformative potential of sustainable infrastructure development. With each sapling planted, the RRTS corridor not only takes a step towards environmental stewardship but also towards creating a greener, more vibrant future for generations to come.
