Ayesa will design four stations in the first semi-high speed rail corridor in India

Date: April 17, 2019

Ayesa has bolstered its position in the transport sphere in the Indian market, where this year it celebrates its tenth anniversary.

The company has been awarded a significant tender within the Regional Rapid Transport System(RRTS), one of the most ambitious projects in the National Capital State Territory of Delhi.

The transport system will furthermore be cutting-edge in the country, as it will be the fastest in operation as there is still no high-speed rail network in place. Designed to run at a speed of 180 kilometres per hour, this forms a high or semi-high-speed rail corridor (as per its English definition), that will link the cities of Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut. The 82-kilometre journey will be covered in 62 minutes, almost half the current travelling time required.

Ayesa will design four of the elevated stations included in the corridor (Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar and Duhai). This is the first detailed engineering package awarded by the National Capital Regional Transport Corporation (NCRTC), the state-run body that promotes these projects. The contract also includes two depots in Duhai and Modipuram.

This corridor is one of the three that the Government has established as priority. It has been allocated a budget of around 3.8 billion euros for its construction, with the system expected to be operational in 2025. The entire plan foresees the creation of eight corridors.
