The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has finished construction of Jangpura RRTS station underpass in Delhi.

This underpass is of four lanes and passing under Mathura Road enabling movement of every type of vehicles including heavy motor vehicles to the Jangpura RRTS station as well as train stabling cum maintenance yard being constructed at this location for all the three corridors of RRTS network.  

Jangpura RRTS station is being connected by Mathura Road in South Delhi for smooth accessibility of the station. In this process, a four-lane connecting road is being constructed by NCRTC from Mathura Road to go towards Jangpura RRTS station.

This underpass construction has been done by box-pushing technology using precast boxes and pushing was done with the help of hydraulic jacks, without disturbing the movement of traffic.

This underpass is completely pedestrian friendly as about 1.5 mtr wide space both side is dedicated to the pedestrian movement. Each underpass box is about 8.5 mtr wide.

These boxes will be joined with Reinforced Earth (RE) wall to create the ramps and loop to complete the connectivity. The construction of RE wall is expected to be completed in the first quarter of this year.  

Once completed, connectivity to Jangpura RRTS station complex as well as train stabling yard from Mathura Road will be seamless, enabling movement of LMV, HMV, as well as fire tenders, thereby providing access to critical RRTS infrastructure as well as adding value to the infrastructure landscape of Delhi.

Jangpura RRTS station is the 25th station on the 82 km long Delhi – Ghaziabad – Meerut RRTS corridor being constructed here with stabling yard for the train stabling and maintenance, operational control centre, office complexes and residential towers.   

NCRTC is implementing India's first Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) which is a rail-based, high-speed, high-frequency regional commuter transit system. It has a design speed of 180 kmph and an average speed of 100 kmph. Powered by electric traction, RRTS will serve as a green mode of transport in NCR. It will also lead to reduction in vehicular congestion and air pollution in the National Capital Region.

Presently, the 20th Launching Gantry has been installed on the 82 km RRTS corridor for the construction of elevated portion. More than 1,200 piers have already been constructed with 56 km of foundation work and 16 km of viaduct.

The 17 km priority section between Sahibabad to Duhai is targeted to be commissioned by 2023 and the full corridor from Sarai kale khan to Meerut by 2025.
