Delhi-Haryana RapidX Corridor Introduces Revised Route; Will Enter Gurgaon From Cyber Hub & Aerocity

The initial routing of the intended Delhi-Haryana RapidX corridor has changed significantly. The proposed Delhi-Haryana RapidX corridor’s alignment, with the entire Gurgaon section running along the motorway (NH-8) with stations at Cyber Hub, Rajiv Chowk, Hero Honda Chowk and Kherki Daula.

New Changes Of Delhi-Haryana RapidX

According to a TOI article, previously, the corridor’s orientation followed the Old Delhi-Gurgaon road, with only Signature Towers connected to NH-8. With the new route, the RapidX line will now reach Gurgaon from Aerocity, with Cyber Hub serving as the city’s first station.

Furthermore, this change necessitates the creation of a new detailed project report (DPR), which would most certainly cause a delay in the project’s timeframe.

According to the revised plan, the RapidX track will run along the Delhi-Jaipur motorway, from Aerocity to Cyber Hub. It will switch to the opposite side of the motorway from Cyber Hub till Kherki Daula, where a three-level underground station will be built.

According to an article published by Mint, the following three stations will be at ground level: Manesar, Pachgaon, and Dharuhera. Unlike the earlier arrangement, the track would now end at Dharuhera rather than the Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror (SNB) urban complex in Rajasthan, cutting the corridor to about 80km, with 60km covering the Haryana districts of Gurgaon and Rewari.

The Reason For These Major Changes

The Delhi leg of the corridor remains unchanged, beginning at Sarai Kale Khan, where the Haryana line meets the Delhi-Meerut RapidX corridor. It will travel from Jor Bagh to Aerocity through Jor Bagh and Munirka, with the full Delhi part underground.

According to the article, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) initially opposed the original plans for the corridor route to be created beside the motorway due to expansion and other additional work. The NHAI, on the other hand, has now approved clearance for the RapidX line to operate beside the motorway.

The corridor’s goal is to serve a large number of office workers in the Cyber City area. However, The NCRTC, which is in charge of building the RapidX corridor, is working on a new Detailed Project Report (DPR).

When do you think this new corridor will come into being?
