NCRTC develops India's first rapid rail transit system in Ghaziabad

India's first rapid rail transit system is being developed by National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in Ghaziabad and is ready for a trial run.

It will be a fast-paced regional transport system that will be functional from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh through Ghaziabad.

Two types of trains will operate under Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS). The first train is called Rapid Rail and will operate from Modipuram through Begumpur Partapur to Sarai Kale Khan of Delhi. The second one is called Meerut Metro and will operate from Modipuram through Begumpur to Partapur.

The rapid rail trains number will be up to 30, at a frequency of every 10 minutes. The trains will operate at 160 km per hour speed and will cover the distance between Delhi to Meerut in only 55 minutes.

In the first phase, the railway corridor construction between Delhi to Ghaziabad's Duhai is being finished rapidly and is in the last stage.

In Duhai Depot, the nation's first Regional Rapid Rail has also been developed. The train was obtained to this depot on six big trailers from Gujarat's Savli through Rajasthan and Haryana to Ghaziabad.

A total of 17 railway lines have been constructed in this depot, out of which there are 11 stabling lines, three internal way lines, two workshop lines, and one heavy internal line.

Rapid Rail boasts an appealing modern design with a regenerative braking system that will produce electricity.

This rail is a fully automatic train, which indicates that it will operate on the automatic operation, and security will be fitted with automatic control.

Facilities like CCTV cameras, dynamic route map reading, ventilation, laptop mobile charging, air conditioning, etc will also make the journey amazing.
