True.

DMRC revolutionized metro rail construction and operation in India. DFC is set to do same for freight corridor construction and operation. RRTS will do same to regional connectivity. HSR will do same to high speed travel.

IR will be left with low income long distance passenger traffic. They will continue to suffer at IR hands.

Jangpura to hold reins of high-speed rail service


Quote:
Operations Control Centre For RRTS To Be Ready By 2025
[email protected]

New Delhi:

The rather quiet south Delhi neighbourhood of Jangpura is on its way to becoming the nerve centre of the high-speed Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) connecting the capital with Meerut, Panipat and Alwar.

While the hub of the system will be located in Sarai Kale Khan, where all the three corridors will originate, Jangpura is being chosen for operational reasons.

“Since our first services will start at 6 am, we need trains available near Sarai Kale Khan,” explained Sudhir Kumar Sharma, spokesperson of National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is executing the project. He said that creating a depot would have required a lot of costly land and that is why NCRTC plans to create stabling lines at Jangpura, where there was government land available. Some trains could be stationed there at night for the first morning services, though the maintenance depots for the Delhi-Meerut corridor would be in Duhai and Modipuram.


NCRTC has chosen Jangpura not only for the stabling lines, but also as the master Operations Control Centre. “Our emergency response teams will be stationed at Jangpura and all emergency equipment will be located there,” said Sharma. “We also needed a centralised control centre from where all the lines could be seen at one point. Jangpura fitted this bill.”

At present work is under way for the 82-km long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor. A 17-km section between Duhai and Sahibabad will be the first to become operational in 2023. A preliminary OCC will be set up at the Duhai Depot area for monitoring train movements. However, by 2025, when the entire corridor is expected to become operational, a master OCC will have come up at Jangpura. It will not only control trains on the Delhi-Meerut corridor, but also on the Delhi-Panipat and Delhi-Alwar corridors to follow.

Since RRTS is a high-speed rail-based system, at any point of time, there will be a number of trains running on the track. Coordination of the train runnings, therefore, is crucial. OCC will help keep track of train speed, movement and other related systems like timetable, traction, train position, ATP (automatic train protection), ATO (automatic train operation), ATS (automatic train supervision) and auxiliary equipment like air-conditioning and ventilation systems.

The project will be the first in India adopt the ETCS (European Train Control System) Level 2 signalling system, which has among the most advanced train control features. “The system continuously calculates a safe maximum speed for each train,” an NCRTC official disclosed. “The Level 2 system is radio-based and displays signalling and movement authorities in the train cab. The train sends data on its position constantly.”

The official added, “The OCC room will have a large electronic display showing critical information related to the movement of the trains. Since all the data come in real time, every minute movement of the train is monitored at OCC.” In case of lags, he said, the engineers would be able to first investigate from OCC itself.

On track: RRTS terminal as transport hub

Quote:
Design Consultant Appointed For Sarai Kale Khan Plan
[email protected]

New Delhi:


When the mega terminal catering to three Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridors comes up at Sarai Kale Khan in a few years, it will not be a standalone facility but a station that will be a part of an integrated transport hub.

National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is executing the RRTS project, has engaged a design consultant to prepare an integrated plan for the entire Sarai Kale Khan transport hub. The RRTS terminal will be quite close to the existing Inter-State Bus Terminal, Delhi Metro’s Hazrat Nizamuddin station and the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station.

During the construction of the terminal, the transport body will also undertake the renovation of Sarai Kale Khan ISBT. An NCRTC official said that the revamp will include creating a scientific bus flow inside the ISBT, creation of pedestrian plazas, landscaping, etc. “Passenger movement between the two facilities will be completely seamless by implementing the traffic flow plan,” he said. “The consultant has begun the design work”.

“Once the integrated plan is ready, we will discuss it with all the stakeholders before its implementation,” the official added.

The RRTS terminal has been a bone of contention as the Delhi government had last year objected to the construction of an elevated structure, which, it had said, will obstruct the proposed renovation of the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT. The government, however, gave in principle approval for the terminal after NCRTC agreed to prepare the revamp plan and also carry out the renovation along with construction of the RRTS terminal.

The Sarai Kale Khan RRTS station will be spread over an area that is 50 metres wide and 300 metres long. The station is proposed to be spacious taking into account that three RRTS corridors are going to converge here. All the three corridors begin from Sarai Kale Khan and connect Delhi to Ghaziabad-Meerut, Sonipat-Panipat and Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar. “A total of six tracks will converge at Sarai Kale Khan,” the official said.

Rapid Rail stations to get screen doors

Witnessing a number of suicide cases in Delhi Metro stations, the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) — the transport body of Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) — has decided to install screen doors in all the stations of Rapid Rail to curb suicides as well as manage crowd in the upcoming stations. It is also known as the Platform Screen Doors (PSD).

Platform Screen Doors will be installed in these stations in the first phase: Sarai Kale Khan, New Ashok Nagar, Anand Vihar, Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, Murad Nagar, Modi Nagar South, Modi Nagar North, Meerut South, Partapur, Rithani, Shatabdi Nagar, Bramhapuri, Meerut Central, Bhaisali, Begumpul,

MES Colony, Daurli Metro, Meerut North and Modipuram. Besides these 22 stations, two others are depot stations — Duhai Depot and Modipuram Depot.

Cross platform transfer?

I really hope they make cross-platform transfer stations for these lines. This will make commuters' life way easier.

something like this station



or

Of all the rail projects in India, this is the one that excites me most. Even more than the HSR project. Eliminating long travel times between places in the NCR could really help decongest it

I remember leaving for Meerut from SW Delhi a few years ago at about 2 pm, and reached a hotel in Meerut at about 8.30 pm. Such was the condition of that route, so yeah this is going to be great. Hopefully also for office goers who leave way early in the morning by train and travel 3-4 hours to get here every morning

All those people from West UP who live in those shanty colonies in Delhi for work purpose, and go back to their homes on weekends .. will now prfer to buy monthly passes for RRTs for 3-4K , live comfertable in their homes and travel to Delhi within 1 hour for work, instead of paying 5-6K for that 1 room in an unauthorised Delhi colony !!

Delhi should have RRTS lines in all directions for 100-150 Kms .. that itslef will stop expansion of illegal colonies in Delhi ..

Any chance the tickets get subsidized? We need cars off the roads and this will in theory help doing just that

NCR | Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) | Proposed

Subsidy is obvious. You mean deep subsidy? I doubt. Even if we consider 20% fares of UK or Japan for such trains, it would be 200 bucks one way. But in UK the resources are shared with long distance trains and any exclusive tracks may cost £25 ( approx Rs.2200) or more.

Given the cost of more than 30000 crore and stringent loan terms from multilateral organisations, the fare would be bit on the higher side. Exclusive tracks for suburban connections are usually highly unviable.

In china no subsidy. ... yet many lines turned profitable in just a decade. ... forget hsr bw main cities. ....now in china all newly built railway lines will be atleast 250kmph. .. that was set. ... in jiangsu state they will have a state wide hsr grid connecting all towns and cities in next 5-10 years. ... imagine a state where every town, cities are connected by hsr. ... that's happening here. ... my city is building second and third hsr lines going to run next year. ..... one will start next year and other a bit late by months. ... ive calculated that Mumbai-ahmedabad hsr is expensive that my city hsr which is going to finish. .. our Mumbai ahmedabad hsr is expensive by 45%..... running late of 2yrs, both Started almost at same time and here it's going to finish While in india it dead slow. ... most ridiculous thing is our hsr tickets price is expensive by 50%。。。。 shanghai hefei ticket starts from 1600 to 2100 While almost same distance Mumbai ahmedabad ticket may cost 3000 according to reports. ... china is a developed country according to me as standard of living and income in china on average is 2-3times higher than india While cost of ticket for same distance in india is 50% higher than china. ....
So my pro country (Very few left ) people of india please understand that india is sucked of it's blood, effort by western, almost all countries. ... Japanese shit is very expensive. ...
Does india need bullet trains While poor people sleep on roads?
Yes we need bullet trains. Infact all new lines that india will build should be a min of 200kmph. ...
Whats wrong is that we should say **** off to all Foreign mncs and their products. .. mncs own our media and brainwash us. ..mncs destroy our desi development. ..
We must make t20 with 220kmph speed. ..
We must build Mumbai ahmedabad railway line with some outsider help until we learn how to build hsr lines. ..
India should not buy rollingstock from Japan which is dumping huge expensive shit on India. ..
We should run t20s at 200kmph for 2-3 years until we make t22or t23 at 250-280 kmph and we use them at 250kmph until we develop our own rollongstock of 300kmph in 5-8 yrs. ....
This way we can make sure ticket costs are cheaper than china and within range of all middle class of India. ...
Donot trust Japanese, Chinese, ...don't even think of trusting USA, France, Korea. ....
That French dickheads said chennai mysore hsr costs 1lakh crore While 10000 crore can make 200kmph line with our own rollingstock and with ticket price bw sleeperclass to 3rd ac. ...
Foreign made hsr with loans and Foreign made rollingstock will be out of reach for 90% indians and Those bad Foreign mncs will not transfer tech. .... they make sure we buy parts from them till we exist

Do you have proof for China’s profits when the whole world doesn’t know what happens internally.
While comparing it is good to compare with a country with similar government structure. Let alone China, I won’t compare with Vietnam as the transparency levels are quite low compared to a democracy.

If you are realistic, compare the costs with metro systems. Allow for A much lower ridership density and estimate the losses. FYI, Indian metro systems are making losses and you don’t need to go to China to prove the profits

Moreover China is at least 5 times richer than India given the manipulated exchange rate. In reality it might be 7 times richer than India.
