Both the Central and State governments are leaving no stone unturned to make lives simpler by developing new transportation services in every region of the country for smooth connectivity. One such upcoming project that is expected to be of great use to travellers is the Delhi-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror) RRTS (Rapid Rail Transit System). Rapid Rail has been on the government’s list for quite a few years and, in the first phase, focuses on three different corridors, namely Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB, and Delhi-Panipat. Once developed, the transport will reduce the road traffic and also save commuters’ time.
Focusing on the Delhi-SNB corridor, it is a part of the Delhi-Alwar stretch and has already been approved by the state governments included in the process. The project awaits the approval of the Central government and will soon be available to the public after it is completed. The corridor extends up to a length of 107 km through three states, 22 km in Delhi, 83 km in Haryana, and 2 km in Rajasthan. In the same pattern, there will be a total of 16 stations on the stretch, 3 stations in Delhi, and 13 stations in Haryana. The elevated portion of the RRTS corridor would be 70.5 km, while 36.5 km would be underground. The project will experience a huge footfall from Delhi and Haryana as the system would benefit inter-state commuters.
In order to make the work easier and more convenient, extra high tension lines are being shifted from the corridor, simultaneously ensuring that the nearby villages do not suffer any power shortage. The first 400 kV high tension line has already been successfully moved near the KMP (Kundli-Manesar-Palwal) flyover between Manesar and Neemrana. The process is being continued to clear the corridor for smoother functioning. All the precautions are being taken to avoid any mishap and inconvenience to the commuters or nearby residents.
The government’s project is an excellent initiative to amplify the transportation facilities and benefit the general population, especially the regular travellers. RRTS is a new concept that will surely turn the tables with its timely services.
