To bridge the connectivity gap between the national capital and Alwar, the nearest fort city in Rajasthan, the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) has planned Delhi-Rewari-Alwar as one of the Rapid Rail Transit Corridors. To be built at an expense of Rs 36,000 crores, the project is likely to give a boost to the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). Once operational, the distance between Delhi and Alwar will be covered in 104 minutes. At present, it takes 3.5 hours.
Delhi-Alwar RRTS: Project details
The total length of the Delhi-Rewari-Alwar RRTS corridor, which is scheduled for completion in 2024, is 164 kms. The project has been divided into three phases, to finish construction on time.
First phase: Delhi to Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror (SNB) Urban Complex: This will start from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi and end at SNB Complex. Out of this 106-km route, 75 kms is in Haryana, while the remaining is in Delhi. The initial few stations in Delhi and Gurgaon will be underground, due to shortage of land. There will be a total of 16 stations in Phase I.
Second phase: SNB Urban Complex to Sotanala: This will include stations en-route Shahjahanpur, Neemrana and Behror. This 33-km route has a number of warehousing and industrial units and is seen as the next warehousing hub of northern India.
Third phase: Sotanala to Alwar: All the stations on this 58-km stretch will fall in Rajasthan, for which the land acquisition is yet to be completed.
