The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs is in the process of seeking Union Cabinet's approval for its Delhi-SNB-Alwar Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor on a priority basis. The second RRTS corridor will also be executed by the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). The detailed project report and pre-construction activities have been completed on fast-tracked basis.
According to the NCRTC's MD, Vinay Kumar Singh, the preparatory work on the Delhi-SNB-Alwar corridor is already in the advanced stage as approvals for utility shifting have been secured and the utility diversion work on the corridor is nearing completion. Road widening work, shifting of pipelines and high tension lines are in full swing. Except for Delhi, most of the portion of this corridor will be elevated. Delhi-SNB (Shahjahanpur, Neemrana, Behror)-Alwar RRTS will start from Sarai Kale Khan and pass through INA, Munirka, Delhi airport, Gurugram, Manesar and then to Shahajahanpur along the National Highway and then turn towards Alwar.
Most of the approvals have been granted for the corridor only the central government's nod is required which is being sought shortly as the corridor will be constructed in three phases. The first phase will cover the 107-km stretch from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi to SNB Urban Complex (Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror). In the second phase, the line would be extended from SNB to Sotanala (33.3km), with Shahjahanpur, Neemrana and Behror in between. In the third phase, the corridor will be extended to Alwar in Rajasthan.
