The first phase of the ambitious Rail Rapid Transit System (RRTS) is expected to be operational in three years with the 17-km stretch connecting Duhai-Shahibabad section in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad to open for public by early 2023, reports Metro Rail News.
The Duhai-Shahibabad stretch is undergoing civil construction works under priority. The section comprises four stations at Duhai, Guldhar, Ghaziabad and Shahibabad.
The nodal agency of the RRTS- National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) said that the 82-km Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor will be operational by 2025. This shall cut down the travel time between Delhi and Meerut from three-four hours by road to under 55 minutes.
