National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) was developing India’s first rapid rail transit system in Ghaziabad which is now ready for a trial. This will be the rapid rail transport system which is introduced to travel from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.
Rapid Rail Trains In India
There will be two types of trains functioning under the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS). The first will be called Rapid Rail which will cover the distance from Modipuram via Begumpur Partapur to Sarai Kale Khan of Delhi. The second train will be called Meerut Metro which will travel from Modipuram via Begumpur to Partapur. There will be a total number of 30 rapid rails crossing the stations at the frequency of 10 minutes. Running with a speed of up to 160km/hr will cover the distance between Delhi to Meerut in just 55 mins.
Construction of Railway Corridor
The Railway corridor which covers the distance from Delhi to Ghaziabad’s Duhai is being developed and is in the final stage. Our country’s first rapid rail train is being assembled in Duhai Depot. The train was brought to the Depot from “Savli in Gujarat via Rajasthan and Haryana to Ghaziabad.”
Amazing Features of Rapid Trains
This rapid rail is being developed with a highly advanced aerodynamic structure. It has a long nose-shaped front so that it can pierce through the air pressure generated while travelling at high speed. The train will have a stunning modern design with a regenerative braking system to generate electricity. The rapid rails will be loaded with complete automatic equipment including auto-security features. While travelling you will enjoy the “facilities like CCTV cameras, laptop mobile charging, dynamic route map reading, ventilation, air conditioning etc.” In the trains, one coach will be reserved for women and two for standard class and staff.
