Visting Naani or old friends in Meerut means taking a day off only to travel. Not anymore. The much-awaited Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) will soon end all travel woes!
The upcoming RRTS project will be three times faster than the metro! The metros will be running at an average speed of 100 km/hour with stoppages, and at 150 km/hr over the non-stop routes. Ok, this will take some time to sink in. High speed, comfortable commuter service which will connect the regional nodes of the NCR which means good news for Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad peeps too!
In the first phase, the inaugural corridor will be 82 km long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor with an expected travel time of 55 minutes. This will be followed by the 103 km long Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat corridor at 65 minutes and the 164-km long Delhi-Gurugram-Rewari-Alwar corridor at 117 minutes. Dayummmmm!
What else? Sarai Kale Khan will become a multi-modal transit hub having seamless integration. Delhi Metro’s Pink line’s station, ISBT and Hazrat Nizammudin station of Indian Railways are in the vicinity will be some other modes of transportation.
The universe is conspiring for you to travel more!
