 Delhiites with home towns in Meerut, we’ve got some good news for you! Soon you’ll be able to travel from Delhi-Meerut in only 60 minutes via the Rapid Rail Transit Corridor. 

This corridor will allow travel at the speed of 160 kmh, thus covering the 92 kms distance in barely 60 minutes! Wow! Slowly via this project, Delhi will become much better connected to NCR, which will seriously reduce the travel time. 

The corridor will originate at the Sarai Kale Khan bus terminal and pass through Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut regions before terminating at Modipuram. Of the 92.05 km-long stretch, 60.3 kms will be on an elevated viaduct, 30.2 kms will be underground, while 1.4 kms will be at grade for connections to two depots, one each at Duhai and Modipuram. 

Overall by the end of it, the travel time might even fall down to 45 minutes between Delhi-Meerut via the express trains!
