Egis has won a contract to design the viaducts on the Delhi Meerut railway corridor (Delhi NCR region) in India. This major project, scheduled to be completed in two years, is considered a genuine priority by the Indian government. It will substantially reduce journey times between Delhi and Meerut, and stimulate economic growth in the region.
The Delhi-Meerut RRTS will be approximately 90 km in length, 30 km of which underground and 60 km elevated. This corridor will allow commercial speeds of up to 160 km/h, and is thus the first semi-high-speed contract in India in which Egis is involved. The contract was awarded to a consortium formed by Egis and the Spanish engineering firm Ineco, for a duration of two years.
