Cement segment of Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor slips during testing

A pre-cast cement segment of the upcoming high-speed Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor slipped at a construction site near the Modi Nagar North station recently. The segment fell close to the barricades during a load testing exercise.

The segment slipped and went near the barricading, during the testing of the launching girder near Modi Nagar North station, as per reports announced by the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is implementing the project.

Launching girders are installed on pillars and are used to join pre-cast segments together to give shape to the viaduct, on which tracks are later laid. The launching girder will help in the construction of the viaduct in the direction of Meerut by connecting the segments.

The Modi Nagar North Station is close to Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. The under construction 82-km-long RRTS corridor between Meerut and Delhi, promises to bring down traveling time to around 55 minutes. A 17-km-long priority section between Duhai and Sahibabad is expected to be completed by next year and the entire corridor by 2025.

As per the official reports, no one was harmed in any way during the incident and there was no effect on the road traffic, which continued smoothly.
