GDA seeks Metro-RRTS integration at Sahibabad in revised DPR

Ghaziabad (Urban Transport News): The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has recently asked Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to prepare a revised detailed project report for the metro corridor between Noida Electronic City and the Mohan Nagar metro station. In the revised report, the GDA has instructed DMRC to make provision of integration of Delhi Metro corridor with a station on the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor near Sahibabad.

According to the plan, the proposed RRTS station at Sahibabad will be one of the elevated stations on the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor. If a plan by Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) goes through, then the Delhi Metro Phase-III project may be linked to the proposed RRTS corridor. To integrate these RRTS with the metro rail network, the GDA has asked DMRC to make provision in the revised DPR so that the stations may be built closer to each other connect through a skywalk. GDA has given one month time to DMRC to submit the revised DPR.

Sources said that the idea of integrating the Vasundhara Sector 2 metro station, on the Phase III corridor with the proposed RRTS station at Sahibabad was discussed and the GDA wishes to connect the two for the seamless access of both services. To implememt the integration work on the ground, the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is implementing the RRTS corridor, will also have to make some changes in its existing plans. According to the present scenario, the distance between the Sahibabad RRTS station and Vasundhara Sector 2 is around 1.6 km and it would not be possible to connect both stations through a skywalk. Hence, DMRC and NCRTC will have to shift their RRTS and metro stations, respectively, closer to each other so that the distance between the two stations may be reduced to 300-350 meters.
