Haryana Govt allocates Rs 500 crores for Delhi-Panipat RRTS

Chandigarh (Urban Transport News): In the budget, the Haryana government has made a provision of Rs. 500 crores for the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) between Delhi and Panipat. In the same line, the RRTS project is proposed between Delhi and Alwar via Gurugram. An estimated cost of Rs.37,500 crores will be spent on this. This Rapid Rail will take only 65 minutes to reach the Sarai Kale Khan from Panipat. The Government of Haryana has made provision of Rs.16,500 crores in this budget for starting the project. The central government will give the remaining amount.

The length of this Delhi-Panipat RRTS corridor will be 103 kilometers. 16 stations are proposed to be built between Panipat and Delhi under Delhi-Panipat RRTS project. The first station in Panipat will be built near toll tax plaza. Depot will be made near Bhainswal. This will be underground due to lack of space in the city. This project will be built with National Highway GT Road. Travel from the toll plaza to Sarai Kale Khan will be completed in 65 minutes. It takes about two and a half hours to travel this distance now. Senior Superintendent of Police, Vijay Singh, posted in New Delhi, said that the train fares may be as much as the Metro or more.

The project will cost Rs 16,500 crore, the state government gave the initial amount of its share, the central government will give the remaining amount. Crossing the drain-2, the depot will be made near Bhainswal in the eastern part of Eldico where the train will be standing. For this, the government will acquire the land from farmers. Soon the process is going to start. The construction of this project will also increase the cost of land surrounding Bhainswal. Survey of this project was completed in January 2018. Then the team of 65 engineers consistently surveyed the project for several days. For this, videography was also made from Delhi to GT Road Toll Plaza through the drone.

This RRTS will connect three districts of GT Road. These are Karnal, Panipat, and Sonepat Those who live in these three districts will have the most benefit. The first station will be near the toll plaza, therefore the reach of the Karnal will be easy. Every day, thousands of people from Panipat and Karnal go to Delhi for jobs and other things.
