NCRTC to extend Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor till Jangpura in Delhi

The Nation Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has decided to extend its Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor, which previously began at Sarai Kale Khan, to Jangpura.

The Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor will now have 25 stations along its 84 km length, which is expected to be completed by 2025.

Sarai Kale Khan, New Ashok Nagar, and Anand Vihar were the only three stations planned in Delhi at the time, with Jangpura serving only as a year-round stabling facility. According to an NCRTC official, an operational control centre will be built in Jangpura to monitor and control the time-bound operations of trains on all three RRTS corridors — Delhi-Meerut, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB, and Delhi-Panipat.

People in Meerut and Ghaziabad will be able to easily access areas such as Lajpat Nagar, Nizamuddin, Ashram, and major hospitals such as AIIMS and Safdarjung thanks to the new station. The current travel time from Meerut to AIIMS is about two hours, but officials claim that the new corridor will reduce the travel time to less than an hour.

Officials said the NCRTC recently decided to develop Jangpura as a station, and that the station-cum-stabling yard will be built on a 12-hectare plot between Jangpura Extension Road and Mathura Road, near the existing railway tracks. The NCRTC is putting together a plan to connect the station and the stabling yard.

The NCRTC is developing the Delhi-Meerut corridor as the first of its RRTS corridors. The corridor's construction work began in 2019.

The total length of the line will be 84 km, with 14 km in Delhi, including a 1.35 km long bridge over the Yamuna River connecting New Ashok Nagar and Sarai Kale Khan stations. The bridge's construction began in February of this year, and it will run parallel to the Delhi Noida Direct flyway.
