The scope of work in the project includes executing a new, dedicated, high-speed and high-capacity rail system in the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Corridor.

The two contracts for RRTS have been secured for packages starting from Duhai to Modi Nagar and from Modi Nagar to Shatabdi Nagar for a distance of about 32 km viaduct including 7 elevated rail stations.
