Delhi-Gurugram-SNB rail corridor gets nod of NCRTC Board

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) Board December 7, 2018 approved the construction of the Delhi-Gurugram-SNB (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror Urban Complex) Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor.

What the Delhi-Gurugram- SNB Corridor will do?

The corridor seeks to reduce the travel time between Sarai Kale Khan and the SNB Urban Complex which are 106 km apart to an estimated 70 minutes.

The Delhi-Gurugram-Alwar rail corridor is planned to be completed in three stages

Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor will be elevated for about 71 km [11 stations], the remaining 35 km [5 stations] will be constructed underground, mostly in Delhi and Gurugram.

In stage I, the Delhi – Gurugram – Rewari – SNB Urban Complex will be constructed. In Stage II, it will be extended from SNB Urban Complex to Sotanala while in Stage III, the line will be further extended from the SNB Urban Complex to Alwar.

Cost of the Corridor

It is planned to be constructed in about five years’ time excluding one year of pre-construction activities at a base construction cost of ₹24,975 crore, funded by Government of India (20%), concerned State governments (20%) and bilateral or multilateral funding agencies (60%).

Three corridors prioritized

Out of the eight identified corridors to connect various NCR towns with high-speed rail commute under the Functional Plan on Transport for NCR-2032, three corridors have been prioritised for implementation in Phase-1 by the Planning Commission appointed Task Force. These include Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut, Delhi-Gurugram-Alwar and Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat.
