Rajasthan okays DPR for Delhi-Alwar RRTS corridor

The Rajasthan government has approved the Detailed Project Report for the Delhi-Alwar corridor of the Regional Rapid Transit System, an official said on Saturday.

The RRTS corridor will be executed by the National Capital Region Transport Corporation. The corridor via Gurgaon will cover a distance of 106 km.

“The Rajasthan government has conveyed its approval for the Delhi-Alwar Rapid Rail DPR to the NCRTC,” the official said.

The RRTS has several corridors and Delhi-Alwar is one of them. In February, the Union Cabinet had approved Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor of the RRTS. Its implementation would provide much-needed additional public transport infrastructure to the NCR to address issues of congestion, air-pollution and catalyse balanced and sustainable regional development.
