At roughly 7 pm yesterday night, the CEC-SAM JV which is in-charge of constructing all 3 sections (NC01, NC02 & NC03) of the 30.016 km Noida-Gr.Noida metro line erected the first pier cap on pier# 963 between the Delta-1 and Depot stations in Greater Noida!

NC03 is progressing the fastest among all three sections of the line which measure 9579m, 10193m and 10244m respectively. Tonight the contractor will be erecting the pier cap for pier# 964 after which this activity will become a regular affair. Once the pier caps for ~20 piers have been placed, then precast U-shaped girders will be brought out of the yard and placed on top of the piers. I expect that piece of construction to start taking place in January! 🙂
