The NCRTC today (March 17) unveiled the coaches to be used in the Delhi-Meerut Rapid Rail Corridor. The delivery of these semi high-speed aerodynamic trainsets, with distributed power, will start soon in the coming months. The manufacturing facility at Savli will be delivering a total of 210 cars for the first Regional Rapid Transport System (RRTS) corridor.
This includes train sets for operating regional transit services on the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor and for local transit services in Meerut. This year, NCRTC will begin trial runs on the Priority Section of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor.
RRTS is the first-of-its-kind system in which trains, with a design speed of 180 kmph, will be available every 5–10 minutes and cover the distance between Delhi and Meerut in 55 minutes with 14 stoppages.
