Pre-Construction works started on Delhi-Gurugram-SNB RRTS corridor


At the beginning of April NCRTC -  a joint venture between the Government of India (50%) and State Governments of Haryana (12.5%), NCT Delhi (12.5%), Uttar Pradesh (12.5%) and Rajasthan (12.5%)  mandated to design, construct, finance, operate and maintain the high-speed RRTS (Regional Rapid Transit System) in NCR (National Capital Region). The project has now started with the mapping using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, this will map the underground utilities on the 106 km Delhi-Gurguram-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror) Urban Complex RRTS corridor.  The underground utility mapping is a process of identifying the position and labelling public utility mains,  such as lines for telecommunication, electricity distribution, natural gas, water mains, and wastewater pipes, which are located underground. The GPR method uses radar pulses to detect these utilities. The investigation is being conducted from the IDPL Complex, Gurugram and will continue for approximately 40 days.

The corridor is planned to be constructed in about 5 years’ time excluding the  year of preconstruction activities at a base construction cost of INR 24,975 crore, funded by the Government of India (20%), concerned State Governments (20%) and bilateral/multilateral funding agencies (60%).

The Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor will be elevated for about 71 km (11 stations) and underground for the remaining 35 km (5 stations: Jor Bagh, Munirka, Aerocity, KherkiDaula and Manesar), mostly in Delhi & Gurugram.

This route will converge with other RRTS routes in Sarai Kale Khan and will be interchangeable so as to facilitate commuters’ movements from one route to another without the hassle of changing trains.

The high-speed Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) rail will cover a distance of 106kms from SKK (Sarai Kale Khan) in Delhi to SNB in approximately 70 minutes. It is a new, dedicated, high-speed, high-capacity, comfortable regional rail-based commuter service connecting regional nodes of NCR to Delhi.
