Thursday, 27 June 2019 | SP Singh | GHAZIABAD

The implementing agency of Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project, National Capital Region Transport Corporation’s (NCRTC’s) has decided to equip European Train Control System (ETCS) on its Sarai Kale Khan hub in Delhi to Meerut corridor.

During presentation at Ghaziabad site office, Sudhir Sharma, the CPRO, NCRTC said they are working on to introduce the latest European System which will enable in controlling trains more accurately than the present system on which the Indian railway system is running. 

“The existing system can track train’s position when it is running on its top speed of 100 kilometer and hour. The latest European System is capable to reflect train’s accurate position up to 160 km per hour and even above per kilometer speed,” Sharma said.

“Through this device, the NCRTC is capable of provideing accurate movement position of the train in 90 second frequency on this corridor. However, the footfall of the passengers will decide on which frequency trains would run in future. At present NCRTC has decided to run the train in five minute frequency on Sahibabad to Duhai patch”, Sharma said.

“ Duhai onwards, the trains will run be at 10 minute frequency as less foot fall is expected in this corridor. NCRTC has the wherewithal to run trains in varied frequency from seconds to minutes  without any error”  added Sharma.

The ambitious Delhi Meerut corridor of NCRTC  is expected to be operational in 2023 for which a grant of Rs. 30,270 Crore has been allocated in last budget. In view of growing population in the National Capital Region (NCR), the NCRTC has chalked out a plan  construct three main corridors in three phases- Delhi-Meerut, Delhi- Alwar and Delhi- Panipat corridors in coming 7 years with the estimated fund expenditure of a out a lakh Crore.  The first phase of Delhi-Meerut is progressing well and is expected to be operational first of the three corridors. This NCRTC project is established by the Central Government with the equity participation of 50 per cent of four states-Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh with their 12.5 percent each which rest 50 per cent shares are of Union Government.
