Ghaziabad: The Meerut (south) station of the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project has reached completion, marking a significant milestone in the ambitious infrastructure development. Officials from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), the agency overseeing the project, disclosed that the final safety inspection by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) is anticipated to take place within the next two to three days.
The RRTS project, currently under construction, spans an impressive 82 kilometres and is designed to connect Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Meerut. At present, a 34-kilometre section of the RRTS, encompassing eight stations in Ghaziabad, is operational. These stations include Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, Duhai Depot, Muradnagar, Modinagar (south), and Modinagar (north).
The Modinagar (north) station will serve as the crucial link to the Meerut (south) station over a stretch of eight kilometres, marking the inauguration of Meerut's first operational RRTS station. Meerut district is slated to have a total of 13 stations, with four dedicated to the RRTS and the remaining nine integrated into a local Metro module utilising the RRTS infrastructure, as confirmed by NCRTC officials.
Providing insights into the features of the Meerut (south) station, an NCRTC spokesperson highlighted its three tracks and platforms, including two designated for RRTS trains and one for the local Metro module. Additionally, a substantial parking facility has been constructed to accommodate passengers from Ghaziabad, Meerut, and neighbouring towns.
The station's design incorporates ground, mezzanine, concourse, and platform levels, spanning approximately 215 metres in length and nearly 36 metres in width. Notably, to facilitate seamless connectivity, two entry and exit gates have been strategically placed, and the station's elevation has been optimised for efficient integration with the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC) and Delhi-Meerut Road.
With a focus on sustainability, the Meerut (south) RRTS station boasts the largest parking facility in Uttar Pradesh along the RRTS corridor, with a capacity to house around 1,200 vehicles. Furthermore, provisions for electric vehicle charging have been integrated into the station's infrastructure.
Upon the completion of the entire 82-kilometre RRTS corridor, commuters from Meerut (south) can expect to travel to Delhi in approximately 30-35 minutes, significantly reducing travel time and enhancing regional connectivity. The ambitious RRTS project is slated for completion by June 2025, promising transformative benefits for the region's transportation landscape.
