Bombardier will deliver:
With an expected ridership of 800,000 a day, India’s first semi-high-speed rail corridor will connect Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Meerut with a new 82-km line will be implemented in phases between the cities. The travel time can be reduced by 75 percent, enabling passengers from Delhi to reach Meerut in less than an hour.
The corridor will have 24 stations, and besides offering high-speed commuter services on the corridor, the infrastructure will also be used for offering local transit services in Meerut.
It is India’s first rail project to include maintenance scope as part of a rolling stock tender process.
