India: A technical cooperation agreement has been signed between India and Spain to develop rapid rail transit systems (RRTS) in the National Capital region of India.
The contract between India’s National Capital Region Transport (NCRTC) and Spain’s Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias (ADIF) will enable cooperation on the technical development of track, signalling, rolling stock, safety, multi-modal integration, and station design.
The NCRTC is a joint venture between the Government of India and the State Governments of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Delhi, and is responsible for designing, constructing, and operations and maintenance of RRTS.
Technical advice will also be made more available on specific issues concerning project implementation and the provision of training to associated personnel.
The first phase will prioritise the Panipat Smart Line and Delhi-Alwar Smart Line RRTS corridors. Pre-construction activities will include geo-technical investigations, design, utility shifting planning, and traffic diversion planning. The rail systems are designed to be operated at 180 km per hour with modern rack structure, rolling stock, and signalling systems.
