India’s first RRTS challenge below development between Delhi to Ghaziabad and Meerut is a excessive pace system with a design pace of 180 kmph. With an working pace of 160 kmph and station each 5-10 km, it is going to cowl a distance of 100 km in about an hour. It is extremely essential to have an environment friendly and environment friendly rail observe system to run the practice at such a excessive pace.

Because the RRTS challenge goals to considerably scale back journey time, it’s finally essential that the design of the chosen observe construction is appropriate for top speeds. The RRTS hall is passing by means of the congested city setting in addition to elevated and underground corridors. The choice of ballast free observe construction has been finalized after contemplating all these main components.

The present ballastless observe system being utilized in metro rail initiatives in India is usually appropriate for design speeds of as much as 95 kmph. Within the absence of excessive pace ballast free observe expertise within the nation, NCRTC has studied a number of internationally prevalent rail observe programs to pick out an acceptable observe system appropriate for top pace, which is dependable with low upkeep. Precast slab observe system has been chosen because the observe system for RRTS.

NCRTC adopted a technique to establish an acceptable observe system for RRTS and first chosen a “System Supplier” who has full information and expertise of the mentioned system. Thereafter, this expertise was strategically acquired from this technique supplier for all RRTS corridors.

RRTS Rail Observe System is utilizing distinctive precast observe slab expertise for the primary time in India

This expertise is getting used for the primary time in India within the development of the nation’s first regional railway. Precast Observe Slab expertise produces excessive effectivity ballastless observe slabs which have an extended life cycle and require much less upkeep. Because of this, the general life-cycle value of the observe can be low.

These precast observe slabs are being manufactured at a manufacturing unit positioned in Shatabdi Nagar, Meerut. These observe slabs are sometimes 4 m x 2.4 m in measurement and use elastomer as a separation layer. Prime quality concrete is getting used within the manufacture of those observe slabs resulting from which it has excessive energy and really positive ending.

RRTS Precast Observe Slabs are being manufactured below Make in India initiative. On a mean 90 precast observe slabs could be manufactured on this manufacturing unit per day. A complete of about 42000 precast observe slabs are to be constructed for your complete Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut hall, whereas about 9000 observe slabs are being constructed for the precedence hall solely.

After development, these observe slabs are transported on giant vehicles/trailers to the already constructed viaduct on the development website and put in on the RRTS viaduct. Precasting helps in higher high quality as manufacturing takes place in a managed manufacturing unit setting and quick observe laying and thru this course of a workforce can lay round 100 – 150 meters of observe per day.

NCRTC has adopted a technique of implementing uniform observe construction throughout its varied corridors and this precast observe slab expertise will likely be used for all below development and upcoming RRTS corridors.

With the assistance of this observe slab expertise, NCRTC will have the ability to run excessive pace and high-frequency RRTS trains and make sure the security and luxury of passengers throughout operation with a mean pace of 180 kmph and 100 kmph respectively.
