During non-peak hours, cargo will move at 180 kph on RAPIDX connecting Delhi

The Rapid Regional Transit System (RRTS), which can travel at a speed of 180kmph, would be used to transport cargo during non-peak hours since RAPIDX will connect Delhi with industrial towns and suburban areas of Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. There will be warehouses at the depots, and various trains might be used to transport freight. The results of two assessments, according to NCRTC managing director Vinay Kumar Singh, were intriguing and encouraging. “A lot of money has been committed to the project; therefore we must take advantage of every chance to profit. However, even if we don’t make any money, transferring the goods will relieve traffic congestion and cut down on smoke and pollution, according to Singh.

Warehouses and other cargo-handling facilities are planned for depots by NCRTC. As a result, moving goods between NCR’s suburban communities will be simple. Warehouses will arrive at Modipuram in Meerut, Duhai in Ghaziabad, and Jangpura in Delhi on the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut line.

The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut route is anticipated to begin operations in 2025, and the decision regarding the carriage of freight will be made after the beginning of passenger service throughout the entire corridor. There will soon be a 17-km priority section with five stations operating between Sahibabad and Duhai depot.

The other two corridors, which would connect Delhi with the commercial, educational, and hospitality centres of Haryana and Rajasthan, are Delhi-Gurgaon-SNB-Alwar and Delhi-Panipat. The former will be built in three stages, starting with a 107 km stretch from Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan to the SNB Urban Complex (Shahjahanpur, Neemrana, and Behror), then a 33.3 km extension from the SNB to Sotanala with Shahjahanpur, Neemrana, and Behror in between, and finally a 58 km extension from the SNB to Alwar.

The Delhi-Panipat corridor will connect Delhi with Murthal, Gannaur, Samalkha, and Panipat in Haryana by travelling north-west from Delhi.
