The authorities from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) published a statement on Tuesday indicating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the additional 17-kilometer long part of the Delhi–Ghaziabad–Meerut RRTS corridor that extends from Duhai to Modi Nagar North. The statement was issued in addition to the announcement that the NCRTC had issued the statement. The statement was given to the public.

Following the departure of a Namo Bharat train from the Muradnagar Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) station in Kolkata, the Prime Minister would be present to greet the passengers. This will take place on the newly added section of the train that has been constructed. This will be accomplished in a disjointed fashion by means of a video conference, which will be utilized. Adding insult to injury, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri will be present throughout the length of the ceremony. He will be seeing the entire event.

As a direct result of this, the Delhi–Ghaziabad–Meerut RRTS corridor will be ready for operations for an additional 17 kilometers more than it initially was. This corridor extends from Duhai to Modi Nagar North and is located beyond the segment that is considered to be of significant operational importance.

Murad Nagar, Modi Nagar South, and Modi Nagar North are the three stations that are included in this expansion. These stations are all a part of the extension that is being provided.

“With the inauguration of this additional 17-kilometer section, Namo Bharat services will be seamlessly available on 34 kilometers of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor,” the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) declared. “This is a significant undertaking.” “This is a significant development.” This line, which runs from Sahibabad to Modinagar North, is comprised of eight stations in total.

In March of 2019, the Prime Minister of India lay the foundation stone for the first RRTS corridor in the country of India. Delhi and Meerut will be connected by this corridor, which will be the first of its sort in the entire country of India. October in the year 2023 marked the beginning of passenger operations at the facility. This event took place throughout the month of October.

It is now possible to extend the coverage of the Delhi–Meerut RRTS corridor beyond its initial operational priority section. This is made possible by the recent addition of a 17-kilometer stretch of the Namo Bharat train service. The recent extension of the Namo Bharat rail service has made this a reality, making it possible for this to occur. “This expansion is poised to boost regional connectivity, making commuting within the area more convenient and seamless,” the National Capital Region Transportation Commission (NCRTC) claimed in a statement that was issued by the agency. “This expansion is poised…”

There is a large difference between the operational speed of the RRTS, which is 160 kilometers per hour, and the design speed of the RRTS, which is 180 kilometers per hour.

The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor, which is more than 82 kilometers in length, is expected to be finished in the near future, and it is projected that the amount of time required to travel between Delhi and Meerut will be reduced to less than an hour.
