Delhi Metro to Begin Pushing Truss Bridge for Pink Line Over Punjabi Bagh Underpass

By the end of this month, the Delhi Metro’s contractors are going to start pushing a steel truss bridge for the Pink line over the Punjabi Bagh underpass on Rohtak Road! This bridge is similar to the recently launched ones at Guindy in Chennai and the one locally at Rajouri Garden. Work here is being carried out by Larsen & Toubro (CC-28) and their subcontractor HMM Infra who has vast expertise in assembling & launching steel structures. They recently launched 40m long steel girders at the nearby Britannia Chowk intersection as well.

The line & bridge here will not only cross over the underpass, but will also go beneath the Green line’s section between Shivaji Park and Punjabi Bagh stations. The bridge is currently being assembled to the north of the Punjabi Bagh West station in the empty space seen below where ‘Shree Ganesh Medicos’ is marked:

As seen above, due to the lack of space for launching the bridge, roughly 20% of the Punjabi Bagh West station has not been constructed yet. Once the bridge is launched, work to wrap up its construction will begin.
