When the mega terminal catering to three Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridors comes up at Sarai Kale Khan in a few years, it will not be a standalone facility but a station that will be a part of an integrated transport hub.
National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is executing the RRTS project, has engaged a design consultant to prepare an integrated plan for the entire Sarai Kale Khan transport hub.
The RRTS terminal will be quite close to the existing Inter-State Bus Terminal, Delhi Metro’s Hazrat Nizamuddin station and the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station. During the construction of the terminal, the transport body will also undertake the renovation of Sarai Kale Khan ISBT.
An NCRTC official said that the revamp will include creating a scientific bus flow inside the ISBT, creation of pedestrian plazas, landscaping, etc. “Passenger movement between the two facilities will be completely seamless by implementing the traffic flow plan,” he said. “The consultant has begun the design work”. “Once the integrated plan is ready, we will discuss it with all the stakeholders before its implementation,” the official added.
The RRTS terminal has been a bone of contention as the Delhi government had last year objected to the construction of an elevated structure, which, it had said, will obstruct the proposed renovation of the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT.
