Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) is a proposed 164 km (approx..) long, semi-high speed rail corridor connecting Delhi, Gurgaon, Dhaurhera, Rewari and Alwar.
It is one of the three rapid-rail corridors planned under Phase-1 of the Rapid Rail Transport System of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). With maximum speed of 160 km/h and average speed of 105 km/h, the distance between Delhi and Alwar will be covered in around 104 minutes. The project is expected to cost ₹37,000 crores. The Phase-I construction is expected to be completed by December 2024.
Construction of Delhi-Alwar Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) route with total 22 stations will be completed in the following three construction phases and a pre-construction phase
Pre-construction phase – January 2019 to December 2019: Pre-construction activities such as Pile Loading Test and Geo-Technical Survey for one year from January 2019 to December 2019.
Phase-1 (Delhi to SNB) – January 2020 to December 2024: The 106 km corridor from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi to Gurugram to SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror) route, of which 75 km is in Haryana. Initial 35 km with 5 stations will be underground mostly in Delhi and Gurugram, and subsequent 71 km route with 11 stations will be over ground in Haryana. To be completed by 2024.
Phase-2 (SNB to Sotanala) – stations en route include Shahjahanpur, Neemrana and Behror.
Phase-3 (Sotanala to Alwar) – All in Rajasthan.
The Pressing Need for Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS)
Worsening air pollution, chaotic streets, congestion on the streets, increasing costs of living, long commuting time – are some of the reasons why Delhites are looking to move beyond the capital city. Several MNCs, industries and other employers too have moved their locations to other less congested regions of the NCR.
The development of the innovative and highly advantageous – RRTS (Regional Rapid Transport System) as part of the Integrated Transport Plan for the NCR 2032, brings in much-needed respite to the NCR residents.
The RRTS, when completed, will connect the major regional centers of the NCR with the capital city and the rest of the region, including the upcoming town of Dharuhera. This forthcoming development is bound to lead to a further rise in interest in Dharuhera as a sound investment destination.
How will the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) impact the Living of People in and around the NCR?
Once completed, the RRTS will have a major impact on the way people travel in and around the NCR. According to a cost benefit analysis done by the Niti Aayog, here are some of the salient highlights of the RRTS:
• Daily ridership of 8.5 lakhs is expected on this corridor in 2025.
• Increased economic activity in the NCR as companies and industries would be able to attract the best of the talent in the region, thanks to super-fast connectivity and commutes.
• Improved access to jobs. The RRTS will make it easy for employees to travel longer distances in shorter times, thereby making daily work commutes hassle-free.
• The RRTS Stations will be integrated with other existing public transport lines providing commuters with efficient last-mile connectivity. Here’s an overview of the integration of some of the key RRTS stations with other existing metro lines:
• The upcoming RRTS Sarai Kale Khan station will be integrated with the Pine Line of Delhi Metro, the ISBT Sarai Kale Khan and Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station.
• The RRTS Jor Bagh station will feed into the Delhi Metro Yellow line.
• The RRTS Munrika station will feed into the Delhi Metro Magenta line.
• The RRTS Aerocity station will be integrated with the airport terminal, the DMRC station at Aerocity and the proposed airport line from the airport to Tughlakabad.
• The RRTS Udyog Vihar station will be integrated with the proposed extensions lines of Gurgaon Rapid Metro and Gurgaon Railway station.
• The next generational mass transport system, the RRTS will not only cut down travel times in the NCR, but will also help to reduce air pollution and traffic jams significantly.
Dharuhera would becomes more attractive with the upcoming RRTS.
Delhi real estate market is no longer a top choice for investors due to its limited supply, burgeoning population, high prices and overloaded infrastructure. The demand for emerging regions of the NCR like Dharuhera is on the rise due to better lifestyle, lower cost of living, freedom, and security offered.
