The National Capital Regional Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has planned to construct a unique Precast Slab Track System for the upcoming Rapid Rail Transit Corridor (RRTS).
This technology is being used for the first time in India in the construction of the first regional rail of the country. The Precast Track Slab technology produces high-capacity ballastless track slabs that have a longer life cycle and require less maintenance. Due to this, the overall life-cycle cost of the track is also low.
These precast track slabs come in 4 m x 2.4 m sizes and are being manufactured at a factory in Shatabdi Nagar in UP’s Meerut under the Make in India initiative.
With this new track slab technology, NCRTC will be able to run high speed and high-frequency RRTS trains and ensure safety and comfort of passengers during operation with design and average speed of 180 kmph and 100 kmph respectively.
