Later this year, tenders are due to be called for construction of a 180 km/h railway between Delhi and Meerut, the first line of the future National Capital Regional Rapid Transit System.
Occupying a stratum between Indian Railways’ conventional long-distance inter-city and suburban trains, with some of the hallmarks of an urban metro, RRTS will introduce a new approach for India, offering fast, frequent and high capacity intra-regional rail services. Improved connectivity is needed to address the environmental and mobility challenges posed by a rapidly urbanising society.
