[Pics] Ahmedabad Metro’s Construction – December 2015 Update

Here’s a post with some new images of Ahmedabad’s Metro line taking shape on Vastral Road in the Vastral and Nirant Cross Roads area! These were shot on December 6 (this past Sunday) and a lot of progress on the piers has been made since the November update. Rebar for a lot more piers has been tied up and casting formwork  has been removed from other completed piers.

This section is part of the initial 6 km elevated stretch from Vastral Gam to Apparel Park which is being executed by J Kumar Infraprojects in the eastern part of the city:

      At the slow pace at which they’re awarding contracts, the entire Phase 1 (37.77 km) would only be completed by 2021-22. Tendering for different sections of the north-south line is in progress and I expect work to start by the middle of 2016.
