To boost connectivity of the National Capital, Delhi with other NCR areas, the State Government has planned to link three proposed Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) with the Delhi metro, Inter-state bus terminals and railway stations in the city. This will help in developing a multi-modal transport hub in the Capital City.
Giving more information on the above, sources from the government said, “To help commuters for a to and fro movement from one place to another, the government has planned to integrate the three corridors of RRTS with eight Delhi Metro stations, three Inter-State Bus Terminals (ISBTs) and two railway stations in Delhi and several other places in NCR.”
They further informed that the government is also planning to develop elevators, walkways, underpasses, and escalators that will connect and help commuters to move easily to these integrated transit corridors.
As per the plan, the three proposed Regional Rapid Transit System corridor will be Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar corridor, Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor, and Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat corridor. All the three corridors will be integrated with Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station, Delhi Metro, and the Sarai Kale Khan RRTS.
The Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar corridor which will be 164 km long will be linked with Munirka, Jorbagh and Delhi Aerocity metro stations.
The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor which will be 82 km in length will be connected with Anand Vihar and New Ashok Nagar Metro stations along with Anand Vihar Railway Station and Anand Vihar ISBT.
The last and the third proposed Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat corridor will be integrated with Kashmere Gate and Indraprastha Metro Stations.
The government has not revealed the final expenditure and year of completion of this infrastructure development, but once operational, the connectivity between Delhi and nearby NCR areas will improve drastically.
