NCRTC Completes Six Steel Spans for Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has marked a significant achievement by successfully finishing the construction of all six steel spans for the Delhi section of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS). This accomplishment brings the total number of steel spans installed along the corridor to an impressive 12.

In an effort to enhance the connectivity and efficiency of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor, special steel spans have been strategically positioned to navigate complex obstacles. Notable locations where these spans have been installed include the Gazipur Drain and Kondli roundabout on the route from New Ashok Nagar to Anand Vihar.

The cumulative length of these six special steel spans measures approximately 360 meters. Among them, three spans are approximately 70 meters long and weigh an impressive 540 tonnes each, while the remaining three are 50 meters in length, also with a weight of 540 tonnes each. These specialized steel spans are approximately 14 meters wide, making them substantial engineering marvels.

Additionally, work is underway on an underground ramp, positioned ahead of these spans in the direction of Khichripur. This ramp’s purpose is to establish a crucial connection between the elevated section and the underground Anand Vihar Station through an intricate network of underground tunnels.

These steel spans are substantial structures, characterized by beams constructed from high-strength structural steel. Their role in connecting the pillars in complex areas where the corridor intersects with rivers, bridges, rail crossings, metro corridors, expressways, and other existing infrastructure is pivotal. In such areas, maintaining standard pillar-to-pillar spacing is practically unfeasible.
