3 Bidders for Delhi – Meerut RRTS System’s ISA Contract

3 firms have submitted bids for the Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) contract of the 82.15 km Delhi – Meerut RRTS line project, after officials from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) opened tenders today afternoon to reveal its list of bidders.

NCRTC invited bids from firms specializing in testing, safety inspection and certification of rail systems in April 2020, and expects the ISA to be onboard for 1640 days (4.5 years).


  • Aether Engineering Solutions Pvt Ltd
  • Bureau Veritas (India) Pvt. Ltd.
  • Italcertifier S.p.A

Contract: DM/GC/COR-OF/101

Title: Independent Safety Assessment for SYSTEMS of NCRTC for DELHI – GHAZIABAD-MEERUT CORRIDOR

Bombardier trains on this semi high-speed rail line will run with a maximum speed of 160 km/hr and average speed of 100 km/hr to connect Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi with Modipuram through 22 stations located across Ghaziabad, Modi Nagar and Meerut. 8 of those stations will serve as dedicated stations for slower local Meerut Metro only services, so the ISA will have to ensure the systems work like clockwork.

Among the key contracts on the systems side of things – Bombardier won the Delhi – Meerut line’s 210 coach rolling stock contract in May while bidding is underway for its ETCS Level 2 signalling and train-control system. A detailed status of each civil package can be viewed here.

In early June, APCO-CRFG JV began setting up their first launching gantry for erecting precast segments in Duhai. They’re responsible for building Package 2 – a 10.3 km viaduct from Ghaziabad Station to the Duhai Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) crossing, with 2 elevated stations at Guldhar and Duhai.

    Will it have 4 sets of tunnels & tracks in Meerut? 2 for metro 2 for RRTS?

    • TMRG says:

      I haven’t seen detailed designs, but pretty sure there will be 2 tunnels.

      If I recall correctly, the 3 common stations (Shatabdi Nagar, Begumpul, Modipuram) will have 4 platforms. The 8 metro-only stations will have 2 platforms but 4 lines (2 for the RRTS trains to pass through).

    Is RRTS will run at Broad Gauge or Standard Gauge, because According to wikipedia, the RRTS will have broad gauge track, but some are telling that, the RRTS will have Standard Gauge tracks, it’s really confusing right now. Can you please clear this doubt?

  3. Gopalakrishna Pv says:

    What is the difference between standard and broad gauge

    • Clevin Gomes says:

      A Gauge means, the distance between the 2 Rails of the track, the width of the 2 rails of the tracks determines the Gauge of the track.
      1) Broad Gauge:- The width of a 2 rails of a track is 1676 mm, it is known as Broad Gauge. Broad Gauge is mainly use on the Indian Railway Tracks.
      2) Standard Gauge:- It is a bit narrower than the Broad Gauge, the width of a 2 rails of a track in Standard Gauge is 1435 mm. Standard Gauge is Internationally Accepted as most of the countries of the world use Standard Gauge tracks. In India, the Standard Gauge track is use only at Metro’s, or High Speed Trains.
