Seamless Passenger Connectivity between RRTS and Delhi Metro Stations

By early 2025, passengers can see the Namo Bharat RRTS and Delhi Metro trains cross-crossing at New Ashok Nagar Metro station. The two trains will also cross each other at Ghaziabad. Both trains will traverse Anand Vihar and Sarai Kale Khan. At Anand Vihar, where the Metro station is elevated and the RRTS station is underground, commuters will not see both trains crisscrossing each other.

The entire 82-km long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor is expected to become operational by June 2025, with the Delhi segment trial run starting as early as early 2025.

The RRTS stations on the 14-km Delhi stretch include:

  1. Anand Vihar RRTS Station
  2. Sarai Kale Khan RRTS Station
  3. New Ashok Nagar RRTS Station
  4. Jangpura RRTS Station

In the Delhi section, the RRTS stations at Anand Vihar, Sarai Kale Khan, and New Ashok Nagar are being constructed close to metro stations to facilitate seamless interchange connectivity for commuters.

Passenger Convenience at Anand Vihar

At the RRTS Anand Vihar station, which will be 297 meters long and 35 meters wide, the following structures are being built for passenger convenience:

  1. Three lifts (one to access the platform and two to connect to Delhi Metro)
  2. Five escalators (three to access the platform and two to connect to the metro)
  3. Two entry/exit gates (one towards Chaudhary Charan Singh Marg and the other towards Anand Vihar Railway Station)

An official of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) mentioned the challenges of constructing new infrastructure close to existing ones, highlighting the collaborative efforts of both train companies to ensure hassle-free movement for passengers.

Passenger Convenience at Sarai Kale Khan

The 215m long, 50m wide, and 15m high Sarai Kale Khan RRTS station, with multi-modal integration at its core, is located close to the Delhi Metro station, Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station, and Vir Haqiqat Rai ISBT. A 280m footbridge equipped with six travelators will connect the RRTS station with Nizamuddin Railway Station.

Passenger Convenience at New Ashok Nagar

For easy connectivity at New Ashok Nagar, the New Ashok Nagar RRTS station will feature a 90m long, 6m wide footbridge connecting it with the metro station, which is around 100m away. Additionally, there are provisions for two extra pedestrian bridges at these stations for better connectivity with adjoining areas.

At New Ashok Nagar, a 42m long and 6.5m wide bridge will facilitate access to Chilla village and Mayur Vihar Extension. On the other side of the same station, a 45m long and 8m wide bridge will be constructed near the Prachin Shiv Mandir for the convenience of residents in the New Ashok Nagar areas.


The integration of Namo Bharat RRTS and Delhi Metro stations, particularly at New Ashok Nagar, Ghaziabad, Anand Vihar, and Sarai Kale Khan, ensures seamless connectivity for passengers. The well-planned infrastructure, including footbridges, lifts, and escalators, enhances passenger convenience and supports hassle-free movement between different modes of transport.
