Rapid Train : The first passengers of the country’s first rapid train will be sand sacks. You must have been surprised too, knowing this, but it is true. Now also know that why these sacks of sand have got a chance to be the first passengers in the rapid train? Actually this is being done for the safety of the passengers. The National Capital Regional Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has taken this step for the safety of the passengers before boarding this train. Puneet Vats, Chief Public Relations Officer of NCRTC said that this is a standard way to check the load capacity of the train. In the past also, the load capacity of trains has been checked in the same way.

Rapid train speed and passenger safety

The country’s first rapid train will run at a maximum speed of 180 kmph and an average speed of 100 kmph. It is also necessary to ensure that the travel of passengers in such high-speed trains is safe. For this, NCRTC has decided to carry sand bags equal to the weight of the passengers to check the load capacity. Therefore, sacks of sand will come out on the journey before the passengers can sit in the rapid train. Puneet Vats, Chief Public Relations Officer of NCRTC, says that the weight capacity of the train is checked like this, this is the standard method. The same method has been adopted to measure the weight capacity of normal trains.

The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor, divided into three sections, is 82 km long. This first Regional Rapid Rail is ready and standing in the Duhai Depot of Ghaziabad.

Before bringing this first rapid train on the track, it will be checked in the workshop, not only this, it will also be checked during the trial run.
