New Delhi: The NCRTC (National Capital Regional Transport Corporation) has aligned Meerut Metro’s North-South Corridor with RRTS network of Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut that will save Rs 6,300 crore of the public exchequer. Earlier, as per Detailed Project Report of Meerut Metro, the original estimated cost for Corridor-I from Partapur to Modipuram was Rs 8,388 crore.

More Information:

  • NCRTC said in a release,”Under the new plan, since this Metro line is parallel to RRTS network of Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Corridor, UP government has accepted the proposal of NCRTC, and asked it to run this metro line on RRTS ( Regional Rail Transit System) network itself by doing necessary modifications.”
  • It said, it will not only help the government save over Rs 6,300 crore but also decongest the heavy road traffic on the 90-km long stretch between Delhi & Meerut.
  • NCRTC, which is the executing agency, will add 6 stations on its existing alignment exclusively for metro operations in Meerut.

The 6 stations are-

  • Partapur
